Can anyone recommend a vendor or brand? I'm preparing for my rifle, and I don't think I can fit a gun safe in the house, let alone afford one at the time being.

Or is there another way to keep the rifle safe in the house? (ie burglars, etc)



sorry mods, if this post doesn't belong here, please move it.

Locked cases are good for child-"proofing" and preventing immediate access. I'd imagine a burglar could just walk off with the case and open it at leisure. With that in mind, maybe secure the case to something heavy/solid as well?

You could always put in a crawl space... I just listed everything with my HO insurance and keep photo's and inventory on a flash drive at my parents (they have a safe)..you could get a SD box at your bank, keep tax information in with it and it becomes a tax write-off.

If space is an issue, check into something like THIS (http://gunsafestore.com/rifle-case.htm) (thecloset vault, in wall model)

If price is an issue, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe check out craigslist, or get a cheap one from Harbor Freight (http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=95685) until you can get a real safe. I don't recommend cheap safes/cabinets for perminent use, but in the mean time, it's better than nothing. When you upgrade, you can use it for ammo storage.

awesome!! thanks for the link. when i mean price being an issue, i mean > ~$1000. Some of the safes I've seen are in the upper $1000+ area.

FYI if you go the craigslist route, at the very bottom of the search page (e.g. for sale --> "safe"), there is an RSS feed button that is useful for monitoring new ads with that keyword.
