New Realtree Gun Safe

Realtreesafe1

Gun storage is something that comes up with increasing frequency in my house thanks to the way our firearms seem to multiply like rabbits. Efficient organizing is something else I, personally, attempt to carry out, and that certainly comes into play with storing firearms. There are quite a few safes out there from full-sized, fire-resistant uprights to smaller bedside options to truly small single-pistol safes. Each type has a use but the average safe doesn’t utilize a space so many of us tend to overlook when it comes to firearms storage (and I do not mean sliding your gun under the bed at night, a habit some have which we can discuss at a later date). New from Realtree is a safe that does just that: makes use of that unused space under your bed for locking away your guns.

The new safe is being referred to as exactly what it is: a Realtree gun safe. The company lists it as designed for under-the-bed, in the bed of your truck, or stacked one upon the other in your closet. For security it has both an electronic keypad and a rotary key lock with upgrades available to higher-grade locks. It’s relatively hefty at 185 pounds and is designed to last; according to Realtree this is the “last one you’ll ever need to buy.”

This looks like a durable option for stowing a few guns securely under your bed or, if you’re able, stacking them in your closet or gun room for even more storage space. The camo finish is a nice addition for hunters such as myself who have so much camo clothing and gear in their closets this safe would blend right in.

The Realtree gun safe is made for the company by the War Dog Safe Company. MSRP $2799. Take a look online at http://www.realtree.com/camo-products/realtree-gun-safes

    You don’t camouflage you gun safe. How will you then ever find it???

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      Key fob.

  • Nocternus

    $2800 is a bit steep. Seems more like a 2-300 $ per drawer item.

  • Nick

    It holds what, two or three rifles? It’s worth maybe a third of what they’re charging. For this price I could have one that holds ten times as many.

      But realtree bro.

  • So, $2800 for a “safe” that two dudes could carry out of your house in a few minutes? No mention of bolting it to the floor/wall? Do they lock together or merely stack? Why buy three $2800 metal bawkses with a limited capacity when you could buy one amazing safe with real capacity for less than $8400? This product angers me.

    At 185 pounds, this is not a gun safe it’s a gun cabinet. A similar level of protection and size can be had for <$500 at a number of hardware and outdoor stores.

    Nothing wrong with gun cabinets, they do a good job of keeping your guns away from your kids but they'll do little to protect your guns from buglars or fire. You can get a lot of SAFE for $2800.

    Haters gonna hate… It’s a collector’s item ppl. It comes with a “Plaque with unique serial number”. 😛 Seriously….stupid.

    • iksnilol

      Aren’t all serial numbers unique?

  • Budogunner

    I like the concept, but you’re going to have to drop the price by a decimal place before I’ll consider it. For that budget I could purchase multiple, higher capacity, superior security solutions.
