If they came prepared to steal your whole gun safe, and it's a larger model, then you can bet they've been in your house before, or they were given the information by somebody who has been there before. You might want to think about any visitors who seemed a bit dodgy.

I had all my guns stolen about ten years ago (pretty sure I know who was behind it), and now I have a fairly large safe, which gives me some peace of mind. Reading about stolen safe events just makes me worry again.

I'm so sorry you had this happen to you. You can only truly understand the feeling of violation this leaves you with by going through it.

Curious how big of a safe....

I think we all feel safe by having one, but if they take the whole thing!!!



Also, I've been in your shoes, and I hope the individuals who did this have a slow painful death.

Sorry to hear it brother...
I belive the safe was in the garage. Quackslapper is a good guy whom I'll vouch for.

This sounds like a inside job,  not just a random theft. 

I hope you find your guns and the guilty party.

You certainly get my sympathies, nothing worse than that feeling after you've been burglarized.  Not saying you did, but I'm always surprised when people I really don't know very well tell me how many and the types of guns they own.  While I'm certainly not shy about telling people I love to hunt, I'm very cautious about talking about how many or what type of guns I own.  Too me it's kind of like telling people you keep a lot of cash in your home. Record those SN's and doesn't hurt to even snap photos for safe keeping.  Best of luck recovering your losses!!!

I will keep a eye out as well. Not to often a python pops up that I don't find. Also the safe type and brand might help. I can see them throwing it on CL trying to get a few more bucks and most safes have serial numbers as well. Even though most scum wont think that and could lead you back to the thieves.

Man, I hate to hear about this crap.  There is nothing worse than a thief, especially one that comes onto your property and into your home.  I hope the pieces of garbage get caught (no reason they wouldn't with the quantity of stolen items they will try to sell); the odds are not in their favor.  My thoughts are with you and your family through these trying times.

Such a bummer. I hate theifs. Agree with some sounds like someone knew what you had. Sell anything lately, garage sales, extended family drug addicts?... The safe will probably turn up in a ditch soon because they will beat the heck out of it to get it open. Hope the losers get caught.

No to pour salt on a wound, but, was the safe bolted down?

My safe is very heavy, but bolting it down made for a little extra insurance that it won't be removed by thieves.
It also keeps it from being tipped over and opened with pry-bars. 
if you search youtube for videos on safe crackers, you'll see that's a common way for some safes to be opened.

I bolted mine to the concrete floor with 6 bolts.  Not budging!  No way to cut bolts!

I helped bolt a friends down using steal angle iron below his floor joists in the crawl space, using 6 long bolts covered in black iron pipe that is loose.  The loose pipe spins making it harder to cut.  Carriage bolts were used, then welded to the angle iron. 
Probably overkill, but he felt better with the added assurance.  Fun project too.

I saw this article a few moments ago and thought it might have a chance of being related.
Wouldn't that be something
I hope when they get the warrant for the car they pop the trunk and find the OP's guns, that would be awesome.

Put an ad on cl, or a Facebook page (if you have one) in the area looking for a specific gun you had stolen. Thieves aren't smart maybe you'll get a bite.
