True Slant has a wonderful article by Scott Bowden about proper gun storage.
I'm sure there are more affordable models to choose from. But for those who could afford it, this would be a wonderful way to ensure that no thief is going to steal your guns. With precautions like this you don't have to worry about that awful guilt which inevitably weighs upon those who allow their guns to be easily stolen.
You know who you are — law abiding, safe, smart, and very well armed.
That is why a 2-ton, $12,000 gun safe made by the Champion company is right for you. If you’re a tall fellow, about 6′2″, here’s what you’ll look like standing next to it.
Man, the things you could put in that! Laptops, digital cameras, important records (safes like this are fire-proof), and. . .oh, and guns. A lot of guns. From the looks of this thing, I’d say you could easily put about fifty firearms of various types in there and still have plenty of room for other items (jewelry case, etc.).
Given that a top-of-the-line scope, like the Swarovski Z6, retails for about $2,300, or a nice bird gun like a Beretta Silver Pigeon IV retails for about $3,200, you want that stuff locked up.
What's your opinion? If you owned a gun safe like this, would you keep one or two pieces outside of it for quick access? That is the dilemma of proper gun storage, isn't it? The guns need to be inaccessible to the wrong hands, children or burglars, yet available to you in an emergency. How do gun owners deal with that?
