      Remember lock up your grinders, torches, drills, etc – don’t help them out
      and like a watch dog – safes only buy you time to get someone there to
      drive them away from your location.

      Best to not have many people know of the firearms and not have the collection
      easily found.

      I’ll give em an A for effort on using an acetylene torch. Makes me wonder if a glass relocker would trigger by the heat alone.

      Artful is right. Invest in a safe, but I don’t depend on it alone. Get a premium security system in place, and live video cameras. Keep more than one dog.

      Several years ago I seen a video of a guy getting into the side a Smith Safe or a Fort Knox by driving an ax into it with a sledge hammer. It sliced it similar to a P38 can opener would a can.
      I imagine this method’s noise would bring attention if in the right area, but some folks don’t care what happens at someone else’s house.

      Oh, anyone who works steel even a little bit will tell you a security cabinet (what we buy)
      is different than a “SAFE” (What the bank has),
      it’s just that all of us DIY types have things that will open our toy box,
      if the burglar has the knowledge to use the tools.
