How do I get into my Sentry Safe?

I have a Sentry Safe (model A3750) that has a broken wire in the solenoid. Sentry recommends that I hire a locksmith to come drill it open. It's not fixable in any way. When I called the locksmith, they wanted $95 to JUST drill open the safe, nothing more. Holy crap, but I think that's too much.

Holy crap, but I think that's too much. Is it possible for me to drill out the lock myself & open the safe with just a regular home drill? How would I go about doing this?
