Where do you keep your most valuable belongings?
A lot of people out there might respond, “A safety deposit box at the bank.” Or they might even have a small safe in their home for their jewelry, coin collection, etc. But what if you have a firearms collection?
Depending on the size and rarity of the items in your collection, your firearms might be your most valuable belongings. Many collectors accumulate dozens (sometimes hundreds) of firearms of various types and eras. It’s an incredibly enjoyable (and potentially lucrative) hobby.
But here’s the scary thing: Many people don’t actually keep their guns safe. I’m not just talking about safe from theft (although that is very important), but also safe from potentially-damaging emergencies like floods or fire. In fact, some collectors don’t even protect their most valuable pieces from one of the most insidious dangers that could befall a firearm—moisture.
So, what kind of safe storage should you be using for your firearm collection?
Well, here is the thing about gun safes…
First off, they are usually huge. They have to be! After all, most firearms aren’t small. A regular-sized safe couldn’t even fit a single rifle, let alone an entire collection. So if you want to keep your firearms in safes in your home, you’re either going to need to buy an enormous safe OR a whole bunch of huge ones. That can get jaw-droppingly expensive. Eventually, it can feel like you have a safe collection rather than a firearm collection.
Even worse, most huge safes don’t offer you the kind of protection that you need. Sure, your safes might somewhat protect against theft, but how watertight are they? If there was ever a flood, could water get inside, destroying your firearms? And what about moisture? Even if you stuff your safes full of those little moisture tabs, it’s difficult to maintain a constant level of humidity inside. This can lead to corrosion or rust inside your guns, vastly reducing their value.
What Are the Alternatives?
To put it simply, the best place to store your firearms is off-site in a facility specifically designed to keep them safe and properly functioning.
When you store your gun collection outside of your home at an appropriate facility, you instantly reduce the chances that someone might break in looking for them. Trust us—it can be a legal nightmare for you if your guns are stolen and used in a crime.
