As a gun owner you will want to find safe and secure storage for your weapons. One of the most common charges police have laid against gun owners has been for unsafe storage practices. The reason for this is that the federal firearms law is very unclear about what constitutes safe and unsafe storage. It is often left to the discretion of the Police officer or local police department.
A Gun Safe will go a long way to keeping the authorities happy about how you handle your guns. The last thing any gun owner wants is for guns to fall into the wrong hands, whether that means kids, or intruders. Gun safes are a great way to separate guns from ammunition as well. They also can help keep the guns clean in air tight or almost air tight cabinets. Many gun safes are also fire rated and flood rated to keep weapons free from damage by flood or fire. Gun safes are available in a range of sizes, safety ratings and price points. They are available for long guns (rifles) and for hand guns.
