Scrolling Instagram, an ad for Liberty Safe‘s big June sale appeared. 10 percent off site-wide plus 18-month interest-free financing. I figured, heck, I’m nearing completion of an entire room more or less built around my own Liberty Safe, so I may as well inform y’all that there’s 10 days left to jump on this sale and simultaneously show off the state of the room and of my safe thus far.
Let me just head off some questions and state that this isn’t an affiliate post or anything. There’s no fee or commission or whatever here for me or any payment to TTAG, nor is Liberty an advertiser, etc. I’ve just always purchased inexpensive (if not “cheap”), ugly safes that I’ve hidden in my garage or mud room in the past, and I’m exceedingly pleased and excited to see and use this gorgeous Liberty Lincoln 40 every day when I walk into my house.
Also, this isn’t a review. I’ll do that after I’ve used the safe for more time and have played with the interior organization more so it isn’t a jumbled mess inside like it is now.
So, well, I found myself with the house but minus one wife, and a formal dining room that First Wife had made into what I’d describe as a fairy princess art room with bright, multi-colored paint.
I decided to turn it into a “lounge” (just don’t call it a man cave, please), which would serve double duty as a photo studio and, when complete, an occasional video studio. TTAG content stuff.
I knew one thing right off the bat: a really good looking, big ol’ safe was going to dominate the space if it weren’t fighting for attention from shelves full of booze bottles.
My search for the safe started at Liberty Safe, meandered around for a while, and ended up right back at Liberty. Custom-built, I was able to order the colors and options that I felt would best suit the room.
Let me be clear here:
• I’ve only had this safe for a few months and I have yet to organize the interior.
• I volunteered to store my girlfriend’s brother’s guns while he moves so he doesn’t have to leave them in a self-storage unit, and he had more than I anticipated! I had to mostly empty out one of my garage safes to fit his stuff in there and I just sort of crammed my guns into the Liberty in the meantime.
So with that said, I love the door storage panel! Obviously I’m able to put eight handguns in the holsters plus there are elastic pouches for mags, knives, choke tubes, and other small things plus zip pockets and more.
The safe itself is rated to protect the interior contents from a house fire for two hours, and the door storage panel also has this “cool pocket” for further thermal protection for documents (I keep birth certificates, passports, etc. in there).
The Lincoln comes with lots of different shelves, organizers, and even a jewelry drawer (it, along with other shelves, are stored in my laundry room right now so aren’t pictured above), and four suggested interior configurations for different types of collections and use. It has an interior power hub with a couple of outlets, USB ports, and an ethernet port. One of those outlets can be used for the included dehumidifying rod.
A motion-activated interior lighting system is also pre-installed.
At this point I’ve dumped all sorts of random stuff into the safe with no real organization attempted or achieved. I’m about to order up some pistol racks from Savior Equipment, and once I’m able to move various guns back into my garage safe I’ll be focused on making my Lincoln 40 organized and as pretty inside as it is outside.
As for the room, I’m getting a lot more use and enjoyment out of it as a lounge and studio than I was when it was the princess art room. Also, it isn’t done! There’s another firearm-related thing in the works, plus obviously I need to put trim and baseboard and outlet covers and that kind of stuff back up, and the current plan for the ceiling is covering it with black sound insulation panels.
This is all a long way of saying, don’t miss Liberty Safe‘s June sale. 10 percent off everything on their site plus no-interest financing is a good opportunity to get an American-made, super premium safe that anchors a room rather than hides in shame in the garage.
