    One Large safe. My wife would actually like to get another one (as we all know, it's odd how much non-gun stuff gets in there - like cameras, etc.). At least she's not telling me to sell guns to make room!!!

    Right now, since I only have 4 guns, and the kids are grown and out of the house, the guns are simply stashed where I can get to them.

    I leave both of my .22's in hard cases and locked. My HK is locked up when I'm not at the house, but otherwise is open. Usually on my person.

    All my pistols are locked up in a small safe, the long guns (shotgun & .22) are stashed away, until I can get a large gun safe in the next few weeks.

    My ccw stays in this next to the bed at night



    I just have a cheap Stack-On for other stuff for now. It's bolted to the wall. The pistol safe (top) is bolted to the wall and the lower safe.

    I put medium, based on price but it is a full size in dimensions - much same as Bud's I think we discovered.

    It does not tho and cannot hold everything - so all important handguns are in - as are major longarms. Everything else has to secreted where possible tho many C&R category longarms do ''litter'' my office!

    No use getting another safe really - no space to put another !!!

    I have a large gun safe. I had to pull out door frames to place it. Most everything is in it save for the odd self defense weapon.
    Shotguns stored muzzle down, of course.

    Dave - haha - someone else does it LOL! That is something I started doing from my very first shottie - which was a Spanish SxS 12G boxlock.

    Mind you - never really did leave enough oil in anywhere to suffer much risk of ''draindown''!

    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the weaponry to make the difference.

    I have a thinwall rifle safe like the one woody has.

    I just got it, and need to secure it. I did have the Idea of putting it in plain view, bolt it down, and fill it up with a bunch of worthless crap. Then hide the good stuff in a false wall/floor/etc compartment. I need to do some remodeling anyway. LOL!
