I would not put that much faith in the rack not comeing out of the wall. Nothing like about $10000 in firearms taking a nose dive to the ground to start you off to a good day.

Nice garments. But, much safer in a safe!

Find a nice used one for around $750 if you get lucky.

A new one will run you around $1K

Make a quality safe your next purchase or you may discover your 'closet beauties' have done a dissapearing act.

I bet the hot brass hurts since ya don't have clothes. Man you got it bad if ya buy more AR's before clothes.

Judging by the top shelf, you got a pretty decent handgun collection too!

The no kids yet thing explains a lot!

You can get a decent 14-16 gun safe by sentry or stack-on at Dick's Sporting Goods or Wallyworld for about $329, they're good beginners safes. (I have one of each. I think the Sentry is the better of the 2. The door fits better. I checked the specs with each company. the guage of steel is the same for both door and walls for each brand.)

They could be breeched with rather simple tools if time and noise weren't a problem, but they're a good deal for the $$$.

I've heard of even the "best" $1500 safes being breeched, in one case using the victim's own torches wheeled into his house from his own garage (ooohhh, that had to hurt - and it's why I store my drill INSIDE my gun safe).

The only way I know of to prevent torch attack is to use DOUBLE LAYER 1/4" steel plate, welded together. My buddy made one like that, and it's bomb proof. Of course it also has to be moved on a low-boy and with a crane.

If someone wants something bad enough, they can get it. I feel relatively "safe" with my $329 safe, bolted to the wall and floor. I live in an apartment, so any banging or sawing is bound to get noticed (it sure did when I was installing it).

Most any home safe, including the best, can be cut into with a cutter/grinder and the proper wheel in about 30 minutes. The best safe is the one no one knows about - hide it. Safes and locks only keep out honest people, not the determined and prepared criminal. Luckily, most criminals are not that prepared.

I figured this needed repeated just in case anyone missed it the first time

Did I make myself a potential victim?

I don't really have a safe. My guns are all buried in the woods.
