Looks interesting. Fire Rating = 0

I need a new Safe that stores more stuff. This one is cool but not even remotely fire resistant plus if a bad guy breaks in he can see all the goodies.

Not for me.

Yeah, but there are a number of members very concerned about kiddie access.

A big fire vault does it for me.

I'm inside that thing in less than ten minutes if I bring tools with me. Maybe five. If I have to use only stuff I find at your house to open it, maybe fifteen.

You can break into it with a die-grinder and cutting wheel in a few minutes, don't like the idea of it's "see through" doors and walls.
That door and lock are flimsy, a large crowbar would do the trick quick.

A little plastique, and Poof! It's open!

Nothing's impenetrable. Anything can be broken. But most thieves are lazy, that's why they are thieves--looking for easy pickings. So the idea is to deter them, and that's why it's called "reasonable" security, because the Courts have a pretty firm definition of what "reasonable" means in various circumstances.

It looks pretty good for a locker (as opposed to a safe), but almost $700 before shipping? But it will keep toddlers out.

Yep. That's exactly what this thing is all about.

Interesting design. One other consideration, you'd better be OK with the ambient room temperature and humidity, because you can't change it inside that cabinet.

It would be nice if reviewers could do some simple lab testing on the product's key value proposition. Like, test how long it takes to break into a safe with simple hand tools like pry bars.

That sounds like Consumer Reports type testing, but I don't think they do gun stuff.
