60 seconds with a sawzall or 5 minutes with a bow saw will give a determined thief your entire in-wall storage cabinet. And i think I could open one up with a 2.5lb sledge and a pry bar pretty quick as well. I wouldn't put anything precious in there. Obviously all of that would be pretty loud and alert a homeowner if he/she was home. But they're great for keeping guns away from children while still providing relatively quick access.
Hang it above your walk-in closet door with one of these: Amazon.com: GunVault BV-01 Breech Vault Safe: Home Improvement
Then put the key in your finger (or biometric) bedside safe next to your pistol: Amazon.com: Gunvault MV500-STD Microvault Pistol Gun Safe: Home Improvement
As an upgrade to the MV500, I also recomend the GunVault MV1000. It gives your more room, and you can put extra magazines and flashlight in the pockets: Amazon.com: GunVault MV 1000 MicroVault XL Handgun Safe: Home Improvement
The MV series fit in drawers so you can keep out of kids view/reach as extra precaution. You MUST be OCD about making sure it's closed (i check three times and never leave it open if I walk away from it, not even for a second. I also have another non-battery operated finger safe (GV1000D) in the closet with my carry pistol, the backup key to my night-stand safe (in case MV1000 battery dies) and the spare BV-01 key
If we hear something at night, I retrieve pistol and BV-01 key from nightstand, wife gets shotgun from closet, we unlock the Mossberg & chamber it (nice and loud on purpose), then get kids (all on top floor) and move back to our bedroom. If we confirm someone is in the house, one person calls 911, while the other aims & defends.
I have used Rig gun grease as my long term storage rust preventer for years now. At least 40 years without any signs of rust.
According to the new NYC and CA law (Bloomberg and FrankenFeinsien are collaborating on this), you will be required to store the barrel with in the house to your left, the receiver in the hose to your right and the ammo in the house across the street.
To use the ASSUALT SHOTGUN (even though it looks mean and is not a semi-auto with a forward hand grip or stud or flash suppressor....) you will need to call the local police, one day in advance, to observe all of the other people give you the components for you to actually put a servicable 590 together.
Make sure you adjust your appointment book/calendar with the Bad Guys (BGs) to let them know that is when you will be legally ready for them.
If you wipe down all the metal surfaces of the gun with gun oil and then put the oiled gun into a silicone-impregnated "gun sock" you won't have any rust problems unless you live by the ocean.
