Google.... Google.... Google....

Not a fake, O Fearless Leader Emeritus, a  CHAMPION!
They call it "The Big Yellow". 4000 lbs, 240 Cubic Feet
http://www.champions...cts_yellow.html

I didn't find a retail price, but according to a blog post it had a price tag of $15,000 on it at the 2014 NRA national show.

Mega Sports in Plainfield, Il, is a Champion dealer, and their web site lists a Delivery Fee for safes:
Minimum charge = $150 (up to 15 miles) $6.25 per additional mile.

That's fork-lifted to just outside or just inside your garage - if your garage door is at least 8' wide and 78" high. Now the Placement Fee (taking it off the pallet and putting in a spot in the old homestead that they can get it into), that costs extra:

Fee:  35 cents per pound; i.e. safe weighs 500 lbs- $175 (that would be $1400 for Big Yellow). This would include 1 normal flight of 10 stairs or less.  Additional flights of stairs = $20 per stair; i.e.10 additional stairs = $200 additional. (Since additional stairs are a flat rate surcharge, a couple of Benjamins would be a bargain to have them slip it into the attic).

Of course, since Mega Sports is open on weekends, you could just swing by there after a match at Fort Beggs and have them load it into your pickup or trailer. :crazy:

Maybe this explains the origin of the term "safe house"?

It would only be a tornado shelter until you accumulated enough guns to fill it. Then you'd be back to square one.
