Disasters that Can Damage Your Guns at Home

Disasters that Can Damage Your Guns at Home

Have you ever had a flooded basement? Fire? Or any other home-based accident?

When it comes to storing your guns at home, there are many things you need to take into consideration. Of course, gun safety is paramount, especially if you have little ones running around. But there are other factors you need to take into account, including humidity, dampness, and whether or not your guns could be destroyed by natural disasters.

At GTA Guns, we’ve inspected countless firearms through our GUNCHECK™ service. Although most of the guns we see are in pretty good shape, every so often we come across firearms that were kept in poor, damp, humid conditions for years on end. It’s absolutely heartbreaking to see these beautiful guns destroyed because of improper storage conditions, natural disasters, and fires.  

Many gun owners store their guns in the basement. Sure, this might seem like the logical place, but, depending on how they are stored, this could potentially end up damaging your firearms. If storage conditions are too damp, mildew and mould can begin to grow on your guns. Even worse, guns can start to rust. Yikes! Then there are the potential dangers of basement flooding, which could absolutely destroy your guns.

So, store them in the attic, right?

Well, up there, what happens if a hurricane hits? Basement or attic, you still need to be concerned about the potential for fires. Fires start every 60 seconds and cause billions of dollars in property damage every year. So not only do you need to figure out a dry and secure place for your guns, you also need to think about fireproof storage options too!

To safely store your valuable guns at home, you’ll need to find a safe that is not only secure, but also fireproof, flood-proof, and can withstand intense damage from natural disasters such as hurricanes or tornadoes. If that sounds complicated and expensive – well it is!
