    I am looking to buy a new gun safe that is fire-proof for at least 30 minutes at 1500 degrees......

    The size would be approx.....30'' wide 25'' deep 60'' high...........

    It would be a combination type safe not electronic...........

    I know there are cheap safes out there that are not bad.....I am looking for a good quality safe......

    What brands are good......What brands to stay away from.......

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.........

    I went through the same process and ended up with a Liberty after looking at everything available. A few things to consider:

    Fire Rating
    Location in your home
    Likelihood of moving it
    All items you intend to store
    Access

    The most important advice I can give you is to get one several sizes bigger than you think you need as you will find or acquire plenty of things to fill it. For example, while my gun collection has grown we also store knives, optics,family photos and other small heirlooms. I also have lots of ammo and magazines to add weight should anyone ever attempt to lift it. We actually built a small room around it with storage for my hunting supplies. It keeps everything handy for me and also we used extra thick walls to help with the fire ratings.

    Like what I did, buy the biggest you can afford, Or that will fit thru your smallest door. Mines already looking small.

    You can never have too many guns or too much ammo.

    ...ditto salty. Liberty is what I have. They are reasonably priced and of excellent quality and construction. I have the Colonial model 23 (30" wide...about 600#). There are several ways safes are advertised for fire rating.....some deceptive. The basic formula and most often used is 1200 degrees exposure for X time and maintain a max internal temp level of 350 degrees for the rated time. Paper will ignite at 405 degrees, so the 350 threshold is most common. Guns are subject to damage when the the temp reaches 500 degrees, according to the experts. I paid $1075 for mine, but that was three years ago...included shipping (no state tax). Safes should be shopped...lots of competition...watch for applicable state tax and shipping when comparing. Good luck.

    Here's a stock pic...mine is burgundy:
