    Safes that aren't built around long guns.

    I've been interested in getting a true gun safe for a few months, and I'm having a hard time finding one that has decent interior space that isn't almost all rifle storage. I only own a couple of long guns, one is a HD gun that stays at my bedside anyway. I'm trying to find something that has space for 6-8 long guns on one side and then shelves down the other. My wife and I both enjoy handguns more than rifles, though I do hunt, but I don't plan on owning 15-20 rifles. Maybe 5-6 eventually. I'd rather have shelf space for pistol cases, ammo, and other valuables.

    Any ideas?

    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    I was at the Champion Safe outlet near me the other day, and their standard Medalist seems like a configuration you would like. The left lower half is for rifles, while the right lower half can either be for rifles, or it can use movable shelves. There are also two full width shelves, if I remember right.

    Check out the Browning Prosteel line of safes. There are several models configured for long guns on one side and removable shelves on the other side.
    I find supremely ironic that God in his wisdom and grace has given man freedom of choice bounded by 10 simple rules. Man in his finite wisdom has created millions of rules to limit freedom of choice and the personal responsibility of his fellow man.

    A lot of the bigger safes (24 gun+), have multiple interior layouts. Almost all with changeable layouts that I have seen have the option of rifles/shotguns on one side, and shelves on the other.

    My Cannon Scout has that (long guns on one side, shelves on the other). It also has hangers on the door.

    Here's one with a good layout, and it can be rearranged:

    Even though you say you don't want or need long gun storage that CAN change! I will give this advice get a bigger safe than what you think you will need! Try to avoid electronic locks. Made in USA is almost always better! Good luck!
