Does anyone own either of these safes? I am not concerned with fire rating, more security. Insurance will pay if their is a fire.
I spoke to Mark at Zanotti and a fellow from Dakota.
I do think the Zanotti may be better quality, however it is $700 more.
Opinions and experiences please.

Do you mean the Zanotti that you can assemble where you want it yourself piece by piece?

Also what Dakota safe?

If the Dakota does not assemble piece by piece then add a handling charge to place it where you want it.

There is also a "Snap Safe" that can be assembled.

I did not know that Dakota had such a safe also!

Thanks, I did check out the snapsafe and it was a too small for my needs. A fellow from Dakota called me back today and we spoke at length.
I will probably order the Dakota and pocket the difference, although I think the Zanotti is probably a better product.
I am not interested in fire protection, I can cover that with homeowners insurance and most burglars are in and out within 5 minutes according to the stats.
