According to Wranglerstar, the humongous safe sheltering your firearms was designed for an earlier time. “I can get into one of those things with a $10 grinder and couple fiber blades from Harbor Freight that I spent no more than twenty bucks on. In fifteen minutes I can be into any one of those safes.” Fire protection? Not unless it’s totally high-end. Skip to 4:41 and our man starts singing the praises of a 100-pound security cabinet, at half the cost of the behemoths.
Wranglestar makes another good point: for those of us who sleep on the second floor, an accessible “proper” gun safe isn’t an option. Which is why I have a Browning Tactical safe on the lower level, a security cabinet near my bedchamber (yes I’m binge watching The Tudors), a single handgun safe near the kitchen and a Cabot on my hip. What’s your firearms storage strategy? One safe, two safes, security cabinets, bedside one-gun safe, what?
