When purchasing a full size rifle safe you will find that you have room to store all of your valuable possessions, not just your firearms, so remember to get a little more space than you need. When buying a rifle safe keep in mind that there are factors that go into the number of guns you can store in a safe. If you are storing your rifles with the scopes on chances are you aren't going to be able to fit 10 guns into a 10 gun safe. A good rule of thumb is to assume that you will be able to hold 15-20% fewer guns than quoted.
Rifle safes are always the better choice when compared to buying a gun cabinet. In some cases a gun cabinet can look nicer than a safe, and has the ability to show off your firearms, but the levels of security aren't even comparable. Robbers or even children and family members could break through the class on a gun cabinet, be it on purpose or accident, thus rendering it completely ineffective for it's primary purpose. Gun cabinets look nice, but are not no where near as secure as a gun safe. Remember it is about protecting your guns, not showing them off.
