Im going to go with ANOTHER liberty series safe. Go on the website, check them out and request a catalog. For the money, they are a great safe. I stayed away from the centurion series because they were made in china. I read the quality was poor. I called liberty and they said the centurion safes are now being made in the usa. Centurion is a good entry level safe. Depending on what your storing in any safe liberty will have one for you.

I dont work for liberty safe company. Im a union chemical worker. Uswa local 2L

I have a Liberty Washington series and a Browning Pro Steel. The Browning is far superior. Browning safe has huge bolts and also corner bolts. Fire rating on Browning is better.

My Browning has the electronic key pad. I would recommend getting a dial if you can. The key pads are made of plastic and can be easily removed or broken. I will eventually switch out the key pad to a dial.

The fire rating on the browning is not better (perhaps you meant your browning safe and not the one the OP linked). Both of his choices really don't have good fire ratings.

Scheels 1325° F 60-minute fire rating
Browning 1200°F/45 min. fire protection

Both of the safes mentioned by the OP have 12-gauge (.105") steel bodies and would be relatively easy to penetrate with a fire ax or other heavy tool (not to mention a saw or torch). For my money I would have something with at least a 1/4" steel body.

...which would mean a Class B rated safe at the very least.

Pretty heavy if they are large though...then you need to add fire protection to them.

Still, more steel = better.
