How do you store your guns when you aren’t using them?
Well hopefully, your number one answer is that you store your guns safely! But that’s just the beginning. When you’re storing firearms at home, there are so many things you need to take into consideration to make sure your guns are actually being stored securely.
Many people opt to store their guns in an at-home gun safe. Gun safes are the most secure at-home gun storage option for the average gun owner, with a no-frills safe being a much better storage option than other forms of storage, such as trigger locks, gun cases, or gun cabinets.
Gun safes are typically very heavy and come equipped with complex locking mechanisms to ensure that no one will be able to get in without the key or code. Plus, there’s usually an option to bolt the safe directly to a concrete slab, making it much more difficult for potential thieves to take the entire safe with them. There are also more expensive and elaborate gun safes available that have specially designed racks and lined interiors to help protect your firearms’ finish and prevent moisture buildup.
One of the most important decisions you need to make is where your safe will be located. For instance, many gun owners keep their firearms in the basement. Although this might seem like the right place for storage, you need to keep in mind the particular demands of gun storage. Basements can be damp, which can cause mildew and mould to grow on your guns. Or, even worse, your guns might start to rust. Uh-Oh! What’s more, basements are notorious for flooding, which could damage your guns beyond repair if your safe isn’t completely waterproof.
And yes, sure, some gun-safes are flood-proof and prevent dampness from seeping in, but the better your safe is, the more it’s going to cost. A proper gun-safe could run you well over $2000.
Ok then, what about storing your guns in the attic?
Once again, there are hazards you need to think about, such as natural disasters. What happens if a hurricane hits? And no matter where your gun safe is located, there’s always the potential for fires. In fact, home fires start every 60 seconds, resulting in billions of dollars of property damage annually. That damage could include your firearms.
So, not only do you need to find a dry and secure storage option for your guns, but you also need to keep fireproof storage options in mind – and like we said, that could get expensive quickly!
