Default Re: Second Firearm Thread...

Thought I would post my ridiculous gun safe in this thread. Guns later. CCW holder in California and CA law requires you to trigger lock or put in a safe your firearms that your currentry not using which generally means under your control. So if I'm going to have to buy something, might as well be useful.

I spent a bunch of time looking around and bang for buck seemed Sturdy Safe was pretty good and it supports a California business that manufactures the safes on site.

I went with the Model 3224 with the 4 AWG body upgrade. It was quite a bit cheaper last year but prices go up in CA faster then most places but 4 AWG steel safes at this price in the US are hard to find. No fire wall as you will see and that saved me a lot of money. I figure go home insurance if I get a fire as none of my weapons are collectibles.

Here is some pics:






I still need to plumb an outlet inside for a dehumidifier but using a large box of desiccant I picked up on Amazon right now as Sacramento is quite humid in the winter. Summer no big deal.

Us cigar and gun guys go to much fighting humidity. In our humidors we want a lot of it, but our safes must be desert dry. Guess it's always struck me funny that we spend money on both humidifying AND dehumidifying.

No, the safe does not and that would have been nice as it's DARK as hell with the black paint. After I plumb an outlet, I was going to put in an LED light string or something. It really needs it as it's a cave and my garage lighting stinks.

I need a new ballast in the overhead light fixture so some to do items.

I bought blue led strips and put them around the inside of the door frame and under the shelves, I then put them on a push button type switch that goes on when the door opens

I really love the look and feel of a 1911 but I just don't trust them with my life (I know some people swear by them and to each his own) but I still wanted a .45, well I went with a platform that I am familiar with so I ordered an M&P compact .45, should be here in a few days

A good safe was likely the best gun-related purchase I ever made. Never had a break in at the house but have had strangers (contractors etc.) in my condo see the safe, perhaps took note it was bolted to the floor and thought better of coming back uninvited.

If you know it's there and you still attempt to rob the place….you got some balls. It's a 50/50 that you will live to see another day.
