How much firepower do you need to crack an 855-pound safe? (VIDEO)

Matt on DemolitionRanch got Liberty to donate one of their new 25-rifle National Classic gun safes for fully destructive testing.

Fully. Destructive. Testing.

With the help of Canadian muscle in the form of Furious Pete, they go after the safe which Liberty advertises as having a 2-step, 5″ door that includes a 3/8″ solid steel door plate and 16 active 1.25″ diameter locking bolts surrounding all four sides of the door.

The safe is fire rated to withstand 1200 F for 110 minutes– but what about fire(arms)?

Starting with .22LR and moving very rapidly north from there, the battle is on.
