There doesn’t seem to be much innovation in the gun safe business, because its hard to build a better mousetrap. But California-based safe and vault door company Vault Pro USA recognized that some of its high-end customers want to be able to view the items in their safe. The solution: a ballistic glass-fronted safe . . .
Pretty cool, eh? Unfortunately, this safe will run you about the same as your average car. Vault-Pro CEO Tony Darling tells me that the front panel alone costs him 5k. Well, Ok then.
For the rest of us 99%ers, Vault-Pro makes some seriously high quality safes at very fair prices. To be frank, safes are like most things in life: you get what you pay for. But safes are an area that many of us will skimp on because they aren’t much “fun.” Ever see that guy at the range that shoots a $6000 sniper rifle but uses a $200 spotting scope? Yeah, safes can be like that. But if your guns are in a cheap safe, they will not survive a fire. I has seen an entire gun collection get ruined because the safe was not up to the task. So when I was in the market for a new 60-gun safe last year, I ended up buying a 2000 lb. Vault Pro USA. The Vault Pro safes had all of the same features as a Fort Knox safe, but at considerably less cost. One feature that I absolutely insist on is a double step door, and Vault Pro has this feature:
In fact, Vault Pro is such a big believer in stepped doors it is now producing safes with optional triple-stepped doors:
I cheaped-out on the finish, and opted for a basic matt black. But if you want to spend the extra dinero, Vault-Pro has some exceptional high-gloss finishes and custom options:
Vault Pro will also customize the interior of your safe however you want it:
Vault Pro will also add pistol hooks in the door, which I really like. If you trace out your guns on paper, Vault-Pro will size the hooks perfectly. I didn’t bother with that, but its up to you.
