Cannon Safe Stands Up to Attempted Break-in

Proves cannons are still more powerful than shotguns.

Baton Rouge, LA. – Cannon is proud to pass along this story from a very satisfied Cannon safe owner. Unfortunately, earlier this month a Cannon safe owner's residence was burglarized, but their Cannon safe stood up to the ordeal. The thief attempted to break into the Cannon safe with a 12-gauge shotgun at point blank range using nearly a box of 12-gauge shotgun shells and various other implements, including a paring knife that stuck in the safe. The Cannon safe took quite a beating, even the keypad was blasted off landing some 20 feet away, barely recognizable, but the safe and its contents remained secure.

"This is the first and last gun safe we'll ever need," said the safe owner, Diane L. of Baton Rouge, LA. "No wonder Cannon stands behind this safe; it's impenetrable! Great product."

The detective who investigated the robbery and the insurance adjuster both stated independently that they had never seen a gun safe blasted with a 12-gauge shotgun and the fact that the safe was still secure spoke volumes about the quality of Cannon's products. No one was home at the time of the robbery and the case is currently under investigation.


Cannon is proud to be the only company in the industry to offer a lifetime, hassle-free, zero cost warranty that includes free parts, labor, and freight for repair after a natural flood, attempted break-in, actual break-in or potential fire disaster. The company paid for a locksmith to drill the safe open and recover the owner's contents. Additionally, the old safe was removed from the owner's home and a new Cannon safe was delivered, all at no charge


Cannon offers trademark security, fire protection and elegance for gun owners, sportsmen and collectors. Undoubtedly the highest quality from top to bottom, all new Cannon safes feature a massive steel composite door, one-inch active-locking bolts, truelock internal hinges and surefire multiple re-lockers. Rugged uni-body construction from heavy steel provides superior protection. Three layers of extra-hard 60+ RC steel hard-plate guard the lock from drilling and punching. All models have verified fire ratings by Intertek ETL, the world's leading fire testing authority. This second-to-none fire protection is achieved with multiple layers of thick 5/8" fire board construction plus a triple fin intumescent cold smoke expandable seal and heat-activated door seal that expands many times when exposed to heat.
