The jails around here have lockers for individual pistols so the transportingLEOs have a place to store their stuff before going in, and the hospital officers have a loaded gun they can get to without the delay of getting into the arsenal in case of a medical emergency. I don't know of anybody making one thats fire rated though. Maybe this would work for somebody's situation, you could bolt two or twenty or two hundred together.

The fire-rating is usually a layer of drywall and the one hour rating will shorten proportional to the heat exposure. I think that ammo in a safe is alright, but it should only be ammo......no guns, important papers, jewelry, etc......ONLY AMMO. Keep guns and valuables separate from the ammo.

I have that Galls safe, it's decent for the price. I opted to upgrade to the Barska Biometric Safe and couldn't be happier.
