Mainly for burglary and fire protection. No flooding risk. My house is small enough where it won’t take long for a burglar to search every space in a relatively short amount of time so I am relying more on weight rather than concealment to be the deterrent.

And the weight of the safe is nearly meaningless. It needs to be bolted into studs and / or concrete to offer any decent theft protection.

Honestly it comes down to how much protection you want.....

buddy had a 800lb safe and they put it on a comforter and slid that shit right out the door.

how much you wanna spend?

are you looking for a gun safe or a document/jewelry safe?

anything you're gunna get from a box store can be broken into with basic tools in about 10 minutes. buy one with the best fire rating in the size you need and bolt it to the floor+walls in the most inconvenient and awkward spot possible

If you have a slab foundation do a floor safe..

Are you referring to the ones that are below the ground level? I like those but I’m concerned the foundation would be compromised with the drilling required. I know my concrete slab has tension wires. I thought those are best before concrete is poured.

a small in ground safe won’t compromise the foundation.
