The drawer is very shallow, perhaps only 2 inches, and it sits in the very top part of the safe where storage probably won't be an issue.

not too much, but the drawer is junky. It slides in place but nothing keeps it from coming all the way out when you open it. Can't put much documentation in it either.

answer 3
NO, it is not a waterproof safe, despite the description on Walmart's site and the commenter above. I own this safe, and I can tell you first-hand that there is no rubber or foam seal around the door - it's just metal against metal, which is not waterproof. Nowhere on the packaging itself or in the manual does it say it's waterproof. Moreover, if you look at the last page of the manual that describes the safe's limitations, it specifically says that, to keep your belongings safe from water, you need to put them in a watertight bag or container before putting them in the safe!

Yes it IS water-proof. Water Tight and Water Proof pretty much mean the same thing.

It can withstand fires up to 1700 degrees for one hour--and it is watertight, for protection from sprinklers and firehoses.

This safe only comes with one shelf and it is removable as well as adjustable. There are 4 or 5 locations you can place the shelf. Support clips (4) are included.

answer 2
Yes. The top one slides in an already fixed shelving area, but it is removable.

The other one is placed by using 4 little metal shelf holders that can easily be removed. The shelf is laid on top of those.

The holders allow the height of the shelf to be adjusted within the safe.

The box says 160lbs. I'd advise getting some help as I consider myself a strong person and I had trouble lifting it. It's very sleek and hard to get a handle on or put your arms all the way around it.
