If you plan to purchase a gun safe in the near future, you can probably save money by buying it in December. Safe manufacturers typically raise prices at the beginning of January in preparation for the Shooting, Hunting & Outdoors Trades (SHOT) Show. SHOT is where manufacturers introduce their new catalogs, products and price schedules for dealers and retailers. Some stores roll out new prices gradually as old stock runs out. But in many cases, especially when you order a non-stock gun safe, the higher prices take effect immediately. So save some money — buy your safe in December before prices go up.
