Opinions on MONSTER under the bed safes

I was looking to diversify my location of my weapons. Thought an under the bed low profile $499.00 Monster Safe looked pretty good.
I would love everyone's opinions also any links to websites with similar products.
Thank you

How do you get a "loaded" safe under your bed and also get it back out from under your bed? Must have wheels

Having a hard time finding out exactly how and what they are constructed from. If it's a safe that should be upfront and prominent. As big as they aren't it certainly is not a safe however one would expect it should state a bit more about how and what it is constructed of. I would look around further before getting this specific product.

The first place bad guys go is the Master Bedroom. Unless it’s very heavy they could carry it out or break it open next to your bed.

Safes used for firearms and other valuables.....

Most gun safes show their specs on the construction and the fire rating.....the better quality safes are heavy and offer good protection in case of a fire.

My gun safe weighs about 600lbs. and offers reasonably good protection from fire....it is not easy to move. I had a tough time moving it with a large app I have a single story home, and have bolted the safe from the inside into the concrete in the floor.

The main consideration for my safe is to thwart a snatch and grab burglary when I am not home. Any safe can be opened by a knowledgeable thief if they have the proper tools and the time..... In addition, many alarm systems can be disabled to gain entry into a home.....

If a person lives in a housing development, it is good to have "nosy" neighbors that watch out for each other...

When I was the S2 in my AR unit, we had pickup truck tool storage boxes in the Arms Room for securing the M-60s. IIRC these were bolted down and each box had twin ABUS padlocks in "blind" positions for protection against bolt cutters. If your bed is tall enough you could certainly fit one (or two) underneath, however I've never seen a burglary where the mattress in the master bedroom wasn't flipped off the frame.

Burglars always head straight to the bedrooms as they know most people store their valuables there.

Burglars never search basements as they know nothing of value is there. Food for thought.

I have an under-the-bed safe. Its called renter's insurance. Guess that's ONE good thing about living in my sh!tty apartment...no burglars think I have anything of value worth breaking in.
