Went home after reading this... My gun safe falls squarely into what the are describing. Bent sheet steel, minimal reinforcement. Putting my hand in the inside edge, I can actually feel where the steel ends. There isn't even a backing angle on the jamb side of the door, meaning the only thing 'there' is the sheet steel. I could probably break into it with a larger screwdriver.... sigh.
Very glad you posted this ELB. I'll be getting other options for the non-gun valuables, maybe a safe deposit box at the bank. Its basically useless in that 'safe'. Not only is it easily accessible, I have in fact consolidated the 'best' valuables in the house into one spot and put a big "Look Here" sign on the front.

We will probably be investing in a good safe soon, and I've always been leery of newfangled electronic mechanisms. Connections fail, batteries die, wires come loose, etc. I always assumed a mechanical device is more reliable. After reading this, though, I'm not so sure. What about other brands, like Liberty?
Seriously, you guys need to read this. I WON'T be buying an additional gun safe when we build the new house. I'll be getting a real safe, bolted to the floor, with walls or poured concrete concealing the bolts. Gun safes (mine included) are apparently a joke.
