Keeping your Family and Guns Safe - 7 Great Gun Storage Options

Posted on


When starting a family, gun owners should ask themselves the this question: How do I keep my family  and guns safe? Simply placing your guns openly in the closet, under the bed, in your night stand drawer or by the back door is irresponsible as a gun owner. There is not one single product that would satisfy the need of every gun owner, which is why when looking for a gun storage option you need to factor in your specific needs. 

If you are most concerned with protecting your firearm from theft or damage, a metal safe is the best and common option. These safes can get very expensive and are quite heavy. Many people opt for a metal gun security product due to its much lower cost and increased flexibility in the event you move to another home or apartment. All of our metal gun safes and metal gun security cabinets come with pre drilled holes and hardware for permanently securing your item to either a wall or floor. 

Many people purchase a firearm with home defense and personal security as their primary need. In this instance, quick access is the key. Most of our gun concealment items look like everyday furniture items and fit nicely into your main family room or bedroom. These rooms are the most likely places you would be in the event of trouble. While these products are a bit easier for a thief to break into, they offer the element of disguise. Burglars will many times carry out or break into a safe while walking right past one of our concealment items. 

Another way to store your firearm would be one of our attractive wood display cabinets. This is the traditional solution given the right circumstances and allows you proudly display your collection. Please note that all of our display cabinets are locking and feature tempered glass doors.
