    Will Gun Safe prices ever go down?

    Inflation is a killer. I mustíve missed the boat in the last year. Iím in need of a bigger and better safe. Iíve seen liberty safes shoot up almost $1000 depending on models. I decided on a Fort Knox thatíll be a very good upgrade over my Liberty Tactical 24 (which I even see for $1700 now!) and Iíll be ordering a Defender 6637. I was going to wait for sales and itís been backfiring since everything is going up steadily if not rapidly. My question is should I bother waiting it out or should I pull the trigger since itíll probably only go up more ?

    LOL...no.

    Last time prices on ANYTHING went down was a dramatic drop on car prices during the lockdown and gun and firearm related items a year prior to the election. Gun prices, and related items, were actually depressed and there were huge surpluses on the market.

    Everyone had ammo IN STOCK and it wasn't terribly expensive.

    The economy would have to make a massive recovery to see that again. Also pretty much everyone gets their steel or gun safe components from China and prices on ALL that stuff have gone up significantly.

    The only good news is if China keeps ramping up the cost of steel, we "might" start making it here at home again.

    You will waiting for a really long time for prices to come down. Go to an actual safe dealerÖthere is room for negotiation there than a big box store. Or buy a pre-owned.

    I looked at the price to replace my safe due to a long distance move. Yeah..I am moving my safe. Lol!

    Yeah I think it’s the new normal now. I figured I’d ask before I call tomorrow and place the order. I’m told it’ll be approximately 6 months at this moment since steel is heavily shorted right now but who knows. If I’m spending this much I rather get a safe I want that’s big enough to fit what I have and still have room for more.

    So since there are no dealers by me that sell Fort Knox I had to call the neatest one to me. Price including delivery is very reasonable in comparison to what Fort Knox quoted me from the website.

    Yep, should’ve got this from the start. My Tactical 24 I think is 59x28x22 if I’m not mistaken. I can fit everything I have now not including ammo but man it’s tight. I figure the 66x37x27 will be plenty space.

    The other nice thing is in 6 months prices might actually even be higher and you will have locked in a better price.

    Hard to believe there was once a time we all stored our firearms behind glass doors of gun cabinets and didn't think anything about it. I can remember when some people even had their firearms "on display" in their living room.

    I'm currently at 6 safes and I have some serious tetris games going on in some of them. I probably need 2 more safes.

    Safes are made from sheet steel. Sheet steel is made from coiled steel. Coiled steel comes from overseas and is 300%+ up from what it was about 18 months ago. Don’t hold your breath on steel going down anytime soon. I think it’ll come down when Trump gets his 2nd term… America first and all that good stuff.
