    In my grandparents house it was a gun rack on the wall and a couple of more long guns in the corner. Guns also stored in a rack across the back window of the truck without even locking the doors or rolling up the windows.
    In my dad's house it was a nice locking wood and glass-fronted cabinet with locking drawers underneath. Guns also stored behind the seat of the the truck, with all the windows up and doors locked.
    In my house it is heavy gauge steel cabinets with dual barrel-keyed locks. I have a pistol safe cabled to the seat frame under the passenger seat of my truck, but I don't leave a pistol in the safe overnight or more than a couple of hours, and I never walk away from my rig without locking it. No long guns get left in the truck unattended - ever.
    Such is the evolution of our society.

    Someday I'd like to have an old style wooden gun cabinet. The wife's got a really nice china closet, why can't the old man have a gun cabinet?

    As a kid, family firearms were in a cabinet. Now, everything which I don't use for home defense is in a Smith Vaults Security Safe. The owner of the company, Doug Smith, has the business about 2 miles from my home. My safe weighs 960 pound empty, and is bolted to my garage floor. I would love to display some of my favorites, but the trust factor is just not there. https://www.smithsecuritysafes.com/

    A friend of ours bought a safe from a small town hotel that was being torn down. It's a 6x8 (I'm guessing) walk-in, made in the mid 1800's. He had it moved to his mom's barn for temporary storage. When he built their house, the foundation was poured, the safe moved, and the house built around it. He's a gun collector and also collects and deals in coins. Have no clue what he's gonna do if he ever decides to move, but he's very confident in the safety of his goodies. And that safe is way cool. Being a contractor and having access to toys capable of moving heavy stuff pays off, I reckon...

    yea, sure all this is perfectly legit but I really don't give much details as to my security or how I plan to keep my stuff mine.
    I do have a few safes, and that's about all I care to go into except--IF you do have a safe take a minute and consider what you may have laying around say in the garage that a criminal can use to open what ever you have!
    I mean a safe that sits in your house and a saws all, recip saw, drill laying around with metal cutting blades and a drop cord don't take a lot of common sense for a bad guy to put together 2 plus 2 =4.

    Excellent point.

    If some idiot is willing to break in to your house, he's likely not going to bat an eye at stealing whatever tools he needs right out of your garage, to break in to whatever looks like it could contain valuables. We can only hope they are hit and run burglars and not planning on staying a while.

    Don't stop there, CB. You need to put your safe in a safe. What does a safe cost that you could fit the average residential dwelling in?

    Now days for many reasons, a safe makes sense.

    possibly?
    but at least keep them put up and out of obvious sight.
    Most burglars (many/most now multiple guys) are in for a quick score and gone, but IF you make it easy enough for them they will take the handed opportunity.
    kind of like positioning your safe against a side wall to make it difficult/impossible to lever a pry bar against the door to force it open.
    course wouldn't do any good IF I were a burglar cause I gots my old Fire Axes!!!---LOL
