I've considered the thought that the valuables in your safe probably shouldn't be worth more than about 10x what you paid for the safe (at least until you get into the TL-30 arena). Well, at the point that I put all my guns in my gunsafe, I've pretty much hit that point, which doesn't even begin to include PMs. Don't get me wrong, it's a decent gunsafe. But it's not even TL-15.
The guns are insured, and none of them are what you'd consider to be "collectors" items or heirlooms, (my kids will likely disagree), if someone got into the safe and stole the guns, they could be replaced by insurance and it wouldn't be that big of a deal for me. (a hassle, to be sure, but no more than that).
The PM's however, are a different story. I don't like the idea of storing PM's in my gunsafe, I'd like a small TL-15 or TL30 safe to store them in. I'm looking at this one: https://www.valuesafes.com/safes/mv30-2016.html. I know just enough to get myself in trouble. As in: I know TL-30 is about the best around for a residential safe, but no idea what a good one would be. It's just for PMs, so it needn't be large (I don't have THAT much!). My budget for this needs to be under $3K. Less is better, but I don't want to skimp, either. Is TL-30 overkill?
