Opinon needed for Gun Safe on second floor

Hi everyone - I'm new to the site but know several members personally and have been told this is a very knowledgeable community. I'm trying to find out if anyone has or had a gun safe on the second story for a period of time. I'm wanting to put a gun safe (approx 800lbs) on my second story. I have a newer home built in 2009 in a windstorm county, I've been told that there should be no problem with the floor supporting the safe but I wanted to get some opinions on here about what everyone thinks. Has anyone had any issues with a safe on the second floor?

There's a lot of other factors there: where a load bearing wall is underneath, design load factors, etc.: I think I'd make the effort to get with the architect and engineer and get an okay on that before i did it.. Just way too many variables there for just a blanket "it's okay"...
