Another reason a garage is not a good location is that most are not climate controlled. Hot/cold cycles of weather along with humidity requires more maintenance on your collection.

I keep a safe in my garage. It is tied to my alarm system. It is sensitive enough to where I couldn't have my home alarm set and start my 73 corvette without setting the alarm off. All of the guns stored in this safe are stored in anti-corrosion bags. I have not had a problem yet.
I don't have a large house and what house I do have is primarily filled up with the wife, two very young daughters and all of their stuff. Garage is my only option, really.
I just went through this process and eventually ended up buying a Bear. My reasons are 1) local business 2) security of the lock 3) fire rating was excellent 4) chance to upgrade to larger safe, as mentioned above.
I've been looking at a lot of safe's lately and I've decided on a Ft. Knox. I'm getting a double deluxe package with 2 steel liners. Should be pretty difficult to break into. I really like their double fire seal.
I buy things I don't need to impress people I don't know

My buddies Bear is painted "almond" and he's stuck old refrigerator handles to it. at a glance you'd never notice it wasn't just a garage fridge! ;-)

Liberty will replace my combo at no charge if someone breaks the combo trying to get in, as most reputable safe manufactures do.

Has anybody heard of patriot safes, i dont have one but have done some research on them and they seem to be pretty awesome?
My recommendation would be to also get a smaller "document" safe to put inside. I have a good heat rating on my Liberty, but all my important papers are inside the doc safe that is inside the Liberty...It almost guarantees that you will never lose a document (or digital HD) to fire or flood...
