Probably 6 to 8 inches between the beams at least. The cables were held up about 1" above the moisture barrier before the concrete was poured.

That would mean the cables are at least 4" from the top surface of the slab. The anchors they used were probably 1-1/2" long and certainly no more than 2".

Besides, if you've ever drilled into concrete, you know it instantly if you hit rebar or one of those cables. :shock:

Came across The Gunbox bedside or table side safe thought I would pass it along.

Seems like it would keep kids safe and easy access in the middle of the night.

Don't water lines also run through the slab at some areas?
In my home, one is allowed to spit on the floor in any situation where they are forced to say the word, Obama.

Yes, but I saw and photographed my house being built. I know where they are and that they're very deep below the surface of the slab.

I got an Amsec from The Safe Company (agunsafe.com) delivered and installed for around $1000 earlier this year. They did a great job, and I would have no problem buying from them again. They did seem kind of surprised that I wanted a manual dial rather than an electronic, but they swapped it out for me with no hassles. I decided on the Amsec because of the steel plate on the door rather than just formed thin sheet metal. It seemed like the best bang for the buck, and it fit perfectly in a cubby basically rendering access to the back and sides impossible without some demolition.
After much research on the issue, I think Amsec makes one of the best safes out there.
I considered a Liberty, but after a few negative youtube videos, and seeing how hard they push the marketing, im nervous about them.
A safe company that puts a lot of time and money into making their product look pretty, has to cut corners somewhere else ...attack/ fire resistance.
