Which gun safe: Earthquake scenario

Let's say you have a big fancy gun safe with a lot in it. Earthquake happens and house falls down on and around the safe. You have to use an axe and a pry tool to get to it by taking apart the roof and ceiling of the house.

Long story short, the primary means to gain entry to the safe was damaged.

Another example:

Lets take every type of safe on the market. Now I'm going to take a sledge hammer and break off or destroy the primary means of getting into the safe.

Now how does one get into these safes when the fancy dial or handle, etc is missing or broken?

Cutting disc. Go through the sides, or the back. You won't have to play with much more than 5/16" steel in most cases, and the fire proofing in the walls will cut much easier.

If you have no power, your generator will handle that.

If you have no generator, you might ba able to pry it open, if it's one of the cheaper safes. A couple very long pry bars and a strong friend, and you might get the door to fail.
