I live in a small upstairs studio apartment. A safe really is not feasible due to the small size of the one room apartment and the narrow stairway leading up to it... What are some good alternatives to a safe for somebody in my shoes? I suppose I could put the safe in the bathtub and give up the luxury of bathing... hey, being a 2nd Amendment enthusiast requires sacrifice, right? Thanks ahead of time...

If you cant have a Traditional Safe, how about one of those small cabinet safes that bolts to the wall? Do you have room to install it in a closet? Of course you give up fire protection with one of these... Are you simply wanting "concealment" so they wont be stolen? I once did an internet search for gun safes and came accross a company that made a rather simple looking coffee table that had the top simply slide off to reveal the stash of weapons... what I saw would be plenty large enough to hold 5 long guns.

I use one of the cabinets as I call them in my apartment. Works great until I can get the house and have better access to the safe! I did put it in the closet and bolted it to the wall, does a decent job in there! When you finally get a house though, your very first piece of "furniture" should be a good safe that is at least twice the size of what you need!!!

Nuckles... thanks for the link... but damn, that stuff is expensive! I could get a quality safe for that much! hehe

Personally, I would prefer multiple smaller safes. Once bolted down they are just as secure as the heavier large safe, but are easier to move. An additional feature is reducing the "all your eggs in one basket" concept. 300lb-500lb range.

Nuckles, That was the exact site I was referring too... and YES, you do have too much time on your hands to keep all those sites book marked... that, or you have a bigger hard drive than mine! M.
