    Other than a safe, how do you lock your long guns?

    Unfortunately, I can not quite afford a good quality safe at this time.

    I have my long guns in a wooden gun cabinet. In case of a burgulary, I am screwed.

    I am planning to buy a good quality cable and lock. Run the cable through the trigger guards and lock them all together.

    I know this is only a deterant, but it's better than nothing. A burglar with no bolt cutters would have to carry all 9 guns out together.

    Any other suggestions from those that have no safe?

    For some reason, I don't think I want to post how I do it on a public site !!!
    Maybe it is paranoid ?
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    I did a search and found stuff about locking in a car, trigger locks, etc. I did not find anything on long guns, but I'll do some search refining.
