I live in Texas but will be working in the Bay area (Palo Alto to be specific) one week a month for the next several years. Rather than deal with the hassle of the airport, I'd sure like to keep a firearm in California. I have checked around at some of the shops, but no one has any available gun lockers. Any recommendations?

Makes you wish there was something like in the movies where they rent a locker in the bus station for a quarter, and then keep the key indefinitely.

edit: Also, check into getting a bank safe deposit box. It should be a lot cheaper than a locker at Reed's. Disadvantage is that you can only have access to the box during banking hours.

Website says $180 a year or $20 a month. So yeah a safe deposit is probably cheaper, but IIRC most banks have a provision written into the rental agreement that prohibits storing certain items in the box. Firearms being one of them. At least when I worked in a bank lots of years ago that's the way it was.

Last time I checked Reeds had a 12 month waiting list for gun storage.

Sounds like a very good business idea. Start a gun storage facility, pay your your buddies to patrol around the property with guns to protect it.

California banks, who knows? I asked about it at an Arizona bank, and they said they don't care what you put in the box and it was none of their business.
