    Gun safe thermometer

    My gun safe has a bit of fireproofing in the fact that the inside is lined with drywall. I was thinking that if I happened to have a house fire, after it's over I'd like to know what the temperature peaked at on the inside of the safe.

    Of course if my house burned to the ground I would imagine it would get pretty hot inside, however if the fire was somewhat minor and was quickly contained I would really like to know that inside temp. peak.

    Does anyone know some sort of device that would store and hold a high heat record. It doesn't have to be a mercury/digital thermometer, maybe just something that changed color and you could compare the color to a temperature chart.

    BTW, what max temp would you declare your metal gun to endure in a safe? As a start I need to measure my gun surface temp after a lengthy range session, also what is the temp of hot blueing?

    Maybe I could just keep some raw biscuits inside the safe and use them as an indicator after a fire.

    I keep an inexpensive inside/outside thermometer and hygrometer inside my cigar storage box aka igloo cooler. It stores the max/min temps.

    If you wanted to get fancy, they make inexpensive wireless probes to keep inside your safe with the receiving unit safe somewhere.

    Kinda like this:

    When you open the safe after the fire and see that your wooden stocks are now charcoal is always a good hint things got a little to hot.

    Your safe may be lined with "Firerock" rather than drywall. A bit better dependent upon how rated. If you lined it, try to reline it with a high rated firerock.

    Yeah, you are right about the Firerock, I misspoke.

    I've got a closet under the stairs and I'm thinking about gutting it, lining it with laters of Firerock, beefing it up with some steel and a special door. I think it would make a good gun storage room. No basement here, and the beefed up closet might also make a good tornado shelter also.

    I could use my safes for smaller stuff like handguns and expensive long guns. I have quite a few milsurp rifles and could store them in my new "gun closet".
