A lot of our customers ask, “Do I need a gun safe?” The truth is that most enthusiasts can learn how to store a gun without a safe by using alternative methods. While gun safes are secure methods of firearm storage, they are also heavy, expensive and potentially difficult to unlock. Many customers want to know how to keep their guns safe but accessible, something that traditional gun safes do not provide. In this article, we discuss the best way to store guns without a safe while also keeping them visible and readily available.

Do I Need A Gun Safe?

A common misconception is that a gun safe is a necessity for gun ownership. Many people believe that, in order to secure a firearm in their home, they need a gun safe — or are required to have one. This could not be further from the truth. You can practice exceptional gun safety without a safe. While gun safes are convenient for large collections, they often have to be stored in closets, basements or bunkers. These safes are often heavy, making them difficult to move. Many are installed directly into walls or floors. They also tend to be bulky and cumbersome, accessible only by a combination lock or keypad.
