    Safe stowage

    I need a safe. However, my current living situation makes bolting one to the floor impossible (I rent). It has to carry both long arms and handguns. Is there a good option here?

    How about bolting into wall studs on multiple sides? For example, put it into a corner, and bolt through the back and side.

    If you are in an apartment I suggest a gun locker in stead. I have a safe in my basement but upstairs I have a gun locker. Like Buckeye said I have it lag bolted into wall studs on two sides. It does a good job and will keep a BG from moving it. However if a BG comes with a crow bar he could get it loose.

    Fill it up.


    Mine's in the basement, not bolted to anything, but would take a small army to get it out of the house......


    I had a cheap StakOn safe when we last lived in an apartment years ago. Kept it in the closet and had it lagged to the studs behind. A little spackle and paint when we moved out and all was good.
