How Safe is Your Gun Storage?

How Safe is Your Gun Storage?

Storing your guns at home is no easy feat.

First, and most importantly, you need to find a way to store your guns securely and out of reach from children.

You also need to make sure your guns aren’t getting rusty or damaged by the elements, so you need to find a way to store them in optimal conditions. Then, you need to think about natural disasters. Storing your guns in the basement can leave them vulnerable to flooding, while hurricanes or fires could be hazards if you store your guns in the attic.

And, of course, no matter where you choose to store your guns at home, it has to be done legally. Whew!

Although there are many at-home storage options, how safe are they really?

Trigger locks, which usually cost less than $20, are good at successfully preventing an unintentional discharge when installed correctly, but they don’t provide any physical protection for your gun, and they don’t protect against theft.

Gun cases are another storage method which don’t protect against theft since these cases are designed to be lightweight and portable. Plus, we never recommend using a gun case because it traps moisture and lead to rust developing on your guns.

What about a locking steel gun cabinet? Although these cabinets provide better protection than a gun case or trigger lock, they are still light enough to be carried away by one or two people, so again, theft is an issue.

Gun safes are the most secure at-home gun storage option for the average gun owner. However, buying a gun safe is a substantial financial commitment since prices can range from $500 to more than $2,500! And you could still be liable if your guns are found to be stored illegally.

So, what’s the best option for storing your guns safely? GTA Gun Auctions Safe Storage, of course!
