Owning a safe and storing your weapons in a secure location is one of the pillars of firearms safety. Have you invested the time and money required for safe storage?
What is Your Living Situation?
If you have children in the home, owning a safe is an absolute must. This keeps your children for touching the firearms when you’re not around, helping you to keep them secure at all times. Secure storage can also be a legal issue, as unsecured guns that become part of a crime or accident could make you liable in court. Think about your living situation and the people in your home and you’ll understand whether or not you should use a safe.
What is Your Environment?
If you live in a high-crime environment, with an increased chance of burglary, keeping your firearms in a large, heavy safe is essential. This not only protects your weapons, it helps to keep criminals from gaining access to dangerous firearms.
No matter what types of firearms you own, proper storage is essential. Therefore, we highly recommend all firearms be kept in a gun safe until needed. Whether you carry a concealed handgun for personal protection, hunt with shotguns, or practice high-volume rifle shooting, be sure that you have a high-quality gun safe for proper storage.
Inside the home and out in the world, responsible gun ownership is crucial, so be sure all your firearms are properly stored and secured when not in use. Even if you live by yourself in a low-crime area, proper storage remains an essential part of gun ownership.
