$40 @ MidwayUSA, looks like $79.95 everywhere else.

As to its function/design, I couldn't testify. I'd rather have a full safe personally, more secure and can also hold other items/documents, somewhat more controllable as far as internal moisture levels go if you live in a humid area.

But if you dont have money/space for a safe and just have a few firearms I guess this'd be a good option.

im only gonna have 2 OLLs for now in a small apartment so i am looking for a smaller storage solution like this. if my collection expands ill go to a full size safe and maybe leave one rifle in the cornerlock for SHTF. what does everyone think?

btw thanks for the lowest price linK!

That might meet the Federal Laws, but doesn't look to safe to me.
I see that coming off with A few hard rips on those Joint Braces, Maybe not though.
Also I don't like to display my Arms.
You could always buy a small safe to place in the closet, I lived in a studio for a while and it made me feel more comfotable for sure.
I think I would invest a bit more than 40.00 for firearm saftey

my ARs would be in a deep corner of my closet, and it put something over them. i definitely understand your concern

regarding the braces, is there any reason why i should believe knoxx's claims of strength? my apartment isnt old and the walls arent falling apart, if that matters

(if there was a smiley for "i dunno", id use it right now)

My initial reaction is that anything bolted onto a wall (even with the bolts mounted over studs), is far from virtually impossible to remove. A guy in average shape with a crowbar or sledgehammer + 10-15 minutes = bad juju

An ideal solution? Hardly. An acceptable solution? Perhaps. [Especially if it is mounted onto 2x4 studs with thick, sturdy bolts at a minimum of 4 (preferably 6-8) points].


My $0.02

I wouldn't trust this device to help prevent theft. It is held in place by four lag bolts. Anyone with a basic knowledge of construction or demolition would have it out of the wall in minutes. Then it becomes a handy carrying ring.:D Getting the guns off the ring would actually take longer than getting the ring off the wall.

Edit: Patriot beat me to it.:p
