    Looking for a safe to store some long guns. Hopefully it won’t break the bank. I may hide it in a wall as I’m refinishing my basement.

    Prolly gonna have 10-15 by the time I’m done collecting.

    Any advice on low profile safes

    This is an incredibly informative website - chock full of useful information / education about "gun safes" - IE what actually is a safe vs what isn't.

    Also keep in mind that the capacity ratings on gun safes are NOT accurate. If you plan on storing 10-15 long guns, you're looking at a 20 gun safe at least. Maybe more like 26.

    Right now I’m thinking a inexpensive safe to store my firearms away from the kiddos. I’m going to go check out rural king today and see what they have available.

    Yeah It might turn into a hidden gun room by the time I’m done.
    We moved to a newer house, out in the county, about 15 months ago...and there were two little finished rooms in the basement (about 10' x 12' which are not bedrooms, as there is no egress windows) but are trimmed out, are carpeted, have closets, has nice wallpaper, etc. and my wife suggested one be a 'gun' room, which is what I was thinking but I am smart enough, nowadays, to wait for the suggestion rather than always ask, that way it be her idea and not mine, and then, later, it can't go back!
    I picked up two (2) Winchester TS26-45 safes...26 guns apiece with 45 minutes at 1400 degrees fire rating...got 'em on sale at Tractor Supply saving $150 per safe or $300 total saved!
    They're not even half full...but there's room for growth...he he

    Rural King has good prices if you want to get the basic Chinese stuff. It isn’t high end… but it’s okay for entry level.
