I have a gun storage facility [LOCKED CONTAINED/SAFE size way TOO SMALL] I now find myself cleaning/thinning out the heard rather than just buying more secure space. I have a friend* who lives in a remote/rural area w/a whole minimum sized ,--> independant bld. 60' x 36' barn like SECURE storage area{heaveanon earth}. I got a limited area apt. living area..........I'm selling gunz to accomadate space for safe's designated expectant storage space 8/10 gunz ..... I sold A Mossy 500A/w 2 barrels-> one, 18.5", one 24"ribbed in 100% cond @ 150.00. I HAD TO, Any links to new APT size FUN safes @ a reasonable cost? Or should I wait for the end of the season? I've found a wealth of knowledge here.....anyone else in this prediciment?THANKS!

Sounds like you need to look at wal-mart/costco/sam's club for Stak-On safes...not vault-like, but secure storage & lightweight for apt living. I believe Cabella's also handles them.

This isn't a great option but its an option, take your long guns, pull the bolts, lock them in the safe, then store the rest of the gun under your bed in as many parts as you can disassemble them. Code the parts and mix them up. Bad guys want a quick grab and sale. Not worth it to mess with parts.

For about $200 you can get a good sized jobsite tool chest. They're a bit heavier construction and thicker steel than the low end Stack-On steel gun cabinets. Check out the link for a pic of what I mean. deltastorage.com/root/jobox_jobsite.html
I haven't seen the Delta brand at any of my local hardware stores, but they have very similar type boxes, and for slightly more than the price of two of the $89 Stack-on's you'll get about the same amount of storage space in a stronger steel box. Now, I'm sure a jobsite box is going to stand out like a sore thumb in your apartment, but if you're handy, you can dress it up with some wood paneling and paint to look like a large table or TV stand. It certainly won't look like something from Ligne-Roset, but remember, if its disguised enough so they don't recognize it as a safe or a container for valuables, they're not even going to try breaking it open.
