It's interesting the way you said they answered, not tested for guns. Makes me wonder if they think an unloaded or loaded firearm inside a safe is just going to fire. I agree with the others on this one. Especially since you are saying that it's in the safe when it's not on your person there is little chance of corrosion or other long term storage problems setting in. I will say that yes I keep one loaded firearm in my safe in case someone "makes" me open it at least I can give myself a chance.

My Liberty Safe is fire and water rated as well but then again it is made for guns. Your local gun shop or Academy Sporting goods stores should have small containers of silica you can put inside to help protect but what you are describing that may not be necessary.

The ratings that manufactures give their products, at least for the good ones, are factual. The very reason being talked about here is what made me buy a Liberty Gun Safe. They have fill length videos of their safes in fully involved fires and they are quite dramatic.

Also the heat in a home structure fire does go above 1200 degrees F. but only stays there for less than 100 seconds. Reference this paper published on that subject alone.

Bottom line like everything else it's a buyer beware world, do your homework and you won't get "burned" (sorry I couldn't help myself)
