Default Costco Sports Afield (Heritage) safe - $749

I ordered this a week ago when it was $799 and I just got an email from Costco today saying they dropped the price another $50 and would be crediting my credit card that money. Very cool. I take delivery this week. Free curbside.

Let us know how you like the safe after you get it in and have it all set up. I'm interested in getting this model over the Big Horn.

I've taken delivery of this thing but I do not have it set up yet in its final location. I have not looked at a Big Horn in person but I can say I very much like this safe for the money.

Correct. I called and asked the manufacturer about this exact thing and they told me based on their research they deemed that it made more sense to spend more $ on the door and bolts than on the body itself. The bad guys go for the door not the walls.

Made sense to me at least. The door and bolt package on this thing look pretty dang good for the price point compared to others I have seen.

This First Alert 24-gun (59H x 28W x 20D) is better bang for your buck than the Big Horn. At $499.99 it is the same size as the Big Horn and is probably made in the same factory in China. Costco doesn't sell this safe online at all so check availability at your local Costco stores.

Correct because cutting the sides make to much noise and is to time consuming unless they use a torch. Just be sure to bolt it down to the foundation. Once on the floor on its back it's easy to pry the door open. A heavy gauge door that has a continuous weld all the way around and locking bolts on the top sides and bottom is ideal. Add a house alarm, big dog, being discrete and nosy neighbors are all layers of protection

Just scored big time on this baby.
It was a display model, but got it for $1499 at Costco.

Was fun moving this but feeling pretty good about my security.

I might not be bolting since it will be backed up against the wall in my walk in closet and that is upstairs.

The new carbide double cut saws will do a number on any metal safe with no sparks and minimal noise.

Geez.....we all know that. Safes are to keep valuables from your run of the mill smash and grab thieves........NOT the professionals with power tools.

Every safe thread features someome posting how easy it is to break into all of them with blow torches, carbide diamond tipped blades, and all the other accoutrements that tweaker burglars on beach cruisers carry around with them in their backpacks.

I sure feel better knowing your safe at home can withstand that.
