Sentry Gun Safe G6211.Â Is a larger size Gun Safe. NON Fireproof Gun Safe.Â Many folks are looking at the price of this gun safe and jumping on it.Â But be aware it is not fire rated.Â However, it is CDOJ certified.Â Stonger steel and better locking bolt system than is its smaller version the Go135.Â They have gotten away from the key and gone with a dial.Â Which makes it feel more like a safe.Â Good storage space and has good interior.Â Sentry Safes are one of the few manufactures that are still making a non fireproof gun safe.Â So there is not much else in the industry to use as a Â comparison toÂ this model.Â
I would like to point out a few of the features.Â The Sentry Gun Safe model G6211 is the first of its line up to use a real bolt work system on the safe.Â It also has drill resistant hardplate in the lock. What is drill resistant hardplate you ask?Â Ahh grasshopper let me explain.Â Hardplate is placed over the interior portion of the lock to protect it from being drilled.Â It is not uncommon for a thief to attack a safe by first taking a hammer to the dial and knocking it off.Â But by doing this he is only making it much harder to break into it.Â Because the hardplate is protecting the most important part of the lock.Â At this point, the thief had better brought a blow torch.Â You see the hardplate cannot be drilled but must be melted.Â This super strong steel plate is what helps this safe be CDOJ (California Dept. of Justice) certified gun safe.Â
Now I can anticipate your next question.Â “How do I get in the safe if the thief breaks off the dial?”Â Well, thats what our good friend the locksmith makes his living doing.Â
To sum up this brief look at the Sentry Gun Safe model G6211. I would call one of the largest Non Fireproof Gun Safes on the market.Â Quality is typical Sentry Safe…which is “affordable Chinese Import” (affordable…I think that was very tactful of me).Â The pry resistant door is much better door than the small GO135.Â But it can still be crowbared after about 5-10 minutes of wrestling with it.Â (I know this because I have done it just to test it.)Â Which is a long time when you consider the average home break in lasts about 3-8 minutes.Â Also, at this price range you may want to look at some of the smaller models with fireproof protection. Its not that much more in price but it offers more value.Â And thats what we are about at www.ValueSafes.com so check out this model on our site under the heading marketed SafesÂ Discount Gun Safes.
