Gun safes protect guns and other valuables from theft and fire. Here are 10 things to consider before purchasing one.

In this economy, a gun safe is one of the wisest investments you can make. According to the FBI, guns top the list of stolen items thieves target in home burglaries. Alcohol, cigarettes and prescription medicine rank second, followed by video equipment (TVs, cameras and recorders). Stereo equipment comes in at No. 4, and rounding out the Top 5 are jewelry and cash. All of the above can be stored securely in a quality gun safe, protected not only from thieves, but from a catastrophic fire, as well.

If your main concern is protecting children from an accidental discharge or transporting guns safely within the home or vehicle, other options are available, such as quick-access pistol boxes and minimum-security safes and strongboxes. These allow you quick access to weapons in the event of a break-in, but do little to stop a determined thief.

A gun safe buys you time against thieves and fire. Most break-ins last 10 minutes or less, and a gun safe buys you time as police are dispatched. These break-ins are typically during business hours when no one’s home ”between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and thieves don’t want to still be in the home when the police arrive.

Yet, generally speaking, the more security features a gun safe has, the better. Realistically, fire poses more of a threat to your guns than does theft. There is an average of nearly 400,000 residential fires annually, which translates to billions of dollars in property loss each year. Fireproof insulation is critical, and several types are available.

The more you know about the various theft- and fire-prevention features available for gun safes, the better informed you will be when purchasing a gun safe. Here are the six things you need to know about fire protection.

File 138483519625.jpg - (264.60KB , 3283x3777 , bullets, misc safe Browning AR34F Gun Safe 1.jpg )
The AR34F Breaks New Ground. Browning has been the industry leader and innovator in gun safes for over 27 years. But there has never been a Browning ProSteel safe like the all new AR34F Tactical safe. In fact the AR34F leads in ground breaking innovation and is the first Tactical gun safe ever. And it is perfect for the person who has special guns — tactical guns — that have special storage requirements.
On the outside it has the tactical look you like — black and textured — with the unique look of overhead and side racking. On the inside it is specially designed to handle the odd shapes and sizes and special storage requirements of tactical guns. That means its made for shorter length rifles with different shapes, unique optics and unique buttplate-to-magazine-to-muzzle dimensions. Finally a practical way to secure your AR, M-16, M4, AK, FAL, FNAR, SCAR, or whatever, in a way that makes sense and doesn’t waste valuable space. It is not a beginner’s safe. If you have the goods that need protection from theft and fire, this gun safe excels. If you like the look of black guns, then this gun safe rises to the top. http://huntinglife.com/ar34f-the-most-unique-browning-gun-safe-in-27-years/

A friend used an old refrigerator as a gunsafe. Secured it with a padlock on the old but sturdy latch. Sure, a prybar can pop that handle off, but burglars might not bother with it as they might not know this is a gunsafe.

Scenario: burglar makes a home invasion, resident flees through the house with the invader in pursuit, ending in the basement where the resident opens up an old refrigerator. "What, you going to throw a ham at me?" the burglar sneers but the resident pulls out a Springfield M1A SOCOM 16 rifle, racking the top round into the breech. "Step away from the Persian rug. It's silk." is the last thing the burglar hears.

The unlocking cable inside has about a 2 year life (assuming opening the safe twice a day) but their warranty is awesome, after 5 years they already replace the safe twice free of charge. They send you the new one with a return label then just box up the old one and drop it off with UPS.

So I only have a pair of handguns and live in a second floor apartment. What should I do as far as safes and lockboxes go?
All I can really rely on currently is keeping any gun-related stuff out of site and easy reach so any one just grabbing what they can fit into their pockets and bolting (which seems to be the majority of the break-ins in my area, mostly people pill bottles and jewelry) doesn't hopefully notice.

My friends and I stored our guns in a basement, but I wrapped mine in plastic wrap. Later, when we went to get these guns, we noticed some were spotted with rust, but mine were just fine.

Now I store my pistols and more expensive rifles in large waterproof plastic gun cases.

I store my ammo in waterproof ammo cans (war surplus steel cans with good rubber seals or modern plastic ones) and then place these in regular cardboard boxes to keep them away from prying eyes of opportunistic burglars (lift that box and the box will tear, spilling out all those heavy ammo cans).

I am the one, Orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand

Obsequious and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called Religion, sadistic, sacred whore.

I twist the truth, I rule the world, my crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies, you grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you, your downfall is my gain
And still you play the sycophant and revel in my pain
And all my promises are lies, all my love is hate
I am the politician and I decide your fate.

I march before a martyred world, an army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days, of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood, I urge you to be brave
I lead you to your destiny, I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palace, your eyes will stud my crown
For I am Mars, the God of war, and I will cut you down.

It's Creepy But Try Not To Laugh At These Mitch McConnell Parodies
Published on Mar 14, 2014
"We'd like to thank Jon Stewart for bringing #McConnelling to the world.

On Thursday's episode of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," Stewart put out a call for viewers to take the latest campaign ad from Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) -- which features the Senate Minority Leader smiling at the camera in a series of awkward shots -- and give it a new soundtrack. Stewart used Simon and Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence" and The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes" as excellent examples of how funny a new twist on the ad could be."* John Iadarola, Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?!, TYT Sports) and Brian Unger (Showdown Of The Unbeatables) break it down on The Young Turks.

Although many people just keep guns in the car glove box or central console (flip-up compartment between the front seats of a vehicle).
Some states allow this, some only allow this if the car driver or owner has a valid concealed weapons permit, and some states forbid this.

A cheap Kel-Tec mouse gun will fit in such consoles, but keeping guns in such may result in stolen guns if the car is broken into or if the car is stolen.

The short version:
I bought this gun safe because it solved my issue of having limited mounting options, while retaining the quick access through electronic entry. The other safes I found online of similar size with electronic entry could not be mounted (in the space I had) in a way that didn't block either their door or keypad, or they were simply too big for what I needed. Overall, I am very happy with this gun safe.

- Design and flexibility in mounting options. Why didn't someone think of this sooner?!
- Foolproof programmable electronic entry with a physical key backup
- Nice white internal floodlight
- You can turn the electronic keypad "beep" sound on/off
- When mounted using bigger hardware (that you supply), the safe feels rock solid

- The mechanical whining noise as the electronic latch locks/unlocks isn't quiet
- The white internal floodlight might be too bright for some people
- The "L" mounting bracket needs more screw hole options for securing it to wood stud walls
- Should come with longer wood screws for secure mounting
- Low battery warning only works if you touch a keypad button

A seriously massive con of this is the mechanical override lock is a tubular lock which is ridiculously easy to pick if you own a $10 tubular lockpick.

If a safe has a wafer lock or a tubular lock, figure out a way to replace said lock with something actually good or buy something different. Wafer locks especially, you can pick those open with a screwdriver.

The biggest problem I have with these kind of safes (couchsafe and bedsafe) is they are in the worst position for a crowbar/breaker bar attack, and it's not terribly effective concealment - it's something a hired home cleaner would easily run into.
