There are no bad decisions or mistakes to be made at the mid level. Buying mid level, just becomes choices. What do I want to look at, what features float my boat and what do I want to pay for. Hence, at the Mid level in the gun safe industry, you cannot make a mistake, they are all good safes.
Since most of the entry level safes come from China, there are many mistakes to be made. The biggest of which, is that most of the China import safes will not withstand much in a pry attack. Secondly, they usually have little fire protection, in the event of a fire. Entry level China safes are cheap products that big box stores can sell to the uninformed consumer. Most people think safe means burglar proof and fireproof, when neither word exists. Gun Safes are designed to give time, time against a break in attempt and time against a fire. Mid level US made safes offer the best balance between those two and your budget.
