Rated 4 out of 5 by BackwoodsBossMan Good starter safe
I bought this because i don't have too many long guns. i have 4 long guns and the few pistols fit on the shelf. as far as 10 gun goes, i'd call it more of an 8. the two shotguns and two non scoped rifles i have on one side take up most of the room. it'll be a Tetris project getting another in there. you can't fit a 50cal. ammo can in it, but the shelves are sturdy enough to hold the ammo. I can see myself either returning this one or selling it and getting the 16 gun safe for the extra room and for future gun purchases.
all in all, on a budget and don't have too many long guns, Go for it. it's a great safe. but if you're like me and plan on buying more, save up another $100 and get the 16.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BHC81 Decent Starter, Great Price
This is a great starter safe. Can't beat a 10 Gun (which it really isn't), fire proof safe for 300 bucks shipped to your door. If you don't plan on expanding your collection any time soon or you don't have the space at this moment for a larger safe, then this is a great safe. Overall, very happy.
- Size - Small enough to fit where I need it
- Storage - I have 4 Long Guns and 2 handguns. Plus ammo and some papers. Suits my needs
- Fire Proof
- Lock - You can't change the combination. Maybe not a deal breaker for some, but I'd like to select my own. I have to go slightly past the last number and as I am rotating, pull the handle. Maybe that's the way its supposed to be. Just annoying.
- Workmanship/Quality - The interior needs help. There are side strips on the stationary surface that the door shuts against. I'm guessing this is for damping the impact when the door shuts. They have poor adhesive and I pulled one off when opening the door. It's use is more ergonomic than safety. It's not meant to create a seal.
Door doesn't sit flush and wiggles. Sounds like this could be by design.
Slightly deeper so I could hang my handguns on the door and an ammo can or two on the floor. But it'd have to wider too.

High quality that serves my needs very well. Will not hold 10 long guns but is well constructed and very smooth to operate. Is well worth the price. The sales associates were awesome as well. I am Happy Happy Happy !!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike576 Decent safe overall
This safe is good overall for storing a few guns, but I ran into two issues. First, there are two red marks on the floor of the interior. These are supposed to be your guides for drilling the mounting holes to bolt the safe to the floor. I found that one of the marks was not even close to being lined up with the hole in the bottom steel plate. I would recommend lying the safe on its back and drilling up from the bottom. This way you can avoid having an extra hole in the insulation that will affect the fire capabilities. Second, the shelves are not deep. If any item on the shelves protrudes past the edge of the shelf (as all mil-spec ammo cans will), the door will not close.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Qmann Quality Safe for a Hunter NOT a Collector
Overall , the safe is a great starter for someone with smaller collection of firearms with ample shelving not provided in other more costly safes. The safe has an attractive exterior with a nice baked- on finish. Comes with lifetime warranty. It is easy to organize and rearrange interior as needed. Weighs @ 250 lbs so can be installed by yourself if need be. Interestingly the 16 gun model weighs only a few lbs more so if you have the space and have more than 5-6 long guns better get the larger size. The weight lends to better security than a cabinet, but definitely should be bolted to the floor. Better get longer lag screws than the ones provided or will be too easy for someone to rock safe out of its position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick Have 3 of these!!!
I like this model cuz I can get it to my basement by myself. Bought 3 and twice the instore price was $20 discount. It's solid, heavy, variable shelving configurations. Only downside is there's no way it will store ten long guns. BTW Field & Stream gun safes are an "off brand" version for Stack-On, but made in China for Dicks Sporting Goods. Called Stack-on customer service today regarding a "wiggle" when the door is shut and locked on the newest one I bought yesterday. The other two identical ones bought earlier this year don't have this "wiggle" room, they close tightly and securely. The Stack-On customer service rep said this was actually a design feature to allow for a tight seal incase of fire. I guess they mean to allow for expansion. Not sure if she was honest or "blowing smoke" since the first two identical models I bought don't have this issue. I just use one of the rubber spacers in the corner when the door is closed and locked #like they way it was shipped#. Overall, I'm very pleased with this model, quality, price and varied shelving features. The life time warranty is also nice. FYI, the customer service rep said if there ever WAS a warranty issue with the Field & Stream safe, they would replace it with a comparable Stack-On model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 9DigiT 10 guns would be a tight fit
I purchased this safe to secure 7 long guns. I have 6 in the safe. It will hold no more than 2 additional guns. Only 1 gun is scoped. I could only use 1 of the 4 shelves because of the barrel lengths (shotguns) of the guns. It's perfect for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GOD Awesome product
Size was a perfect fit for a nook I had. Love the lock, locking mechanism, heavy duty hinges, and weight. Unfortuneatly I only got 5 rifles on one side and the ammunition for them on the other side and there is no more room. I love this product but sadly I will have to go back and get his BIG brother.

overall quality is good. But there is no way that 10 rifles will fit in this safe. The space is tight but will work for what I have right now.
