A numbers of years ago when I lived in Connecticut there was a string of house burglaries and a lot of them were inside jobs, knowing who had safes. Apparently it was a delivery guy working with a safe company that knew who had them.
Again, if it's something so precious an important that it would require a safe for me to have peace of mind, I don't really want to own it.
The deeds to my condo and other papers I keep at a bank. My passport is in a drawer by my bed. I live in a condo that would probably be extremely difficult to burglarize so I suppose I don't have much paranoia.
