    As an observation, from across the Pond, we have specific laws regarding the 'security and safekeeping of firearms/shotguns'. I have a 14 gun Buffalo River safe for my six rifles and six shotguns and two pistols. My wife has a 7 gun Infac safe for her three shotguns. Here the law stipulates that cabinet/safes have to be bolted to a solid retaining wall, not in a dettached shed or garage. My safe is chemically bolted with 4 10mm bolts to the wall and two coach bolts into the joists under the floor. Glass cabinets are unheard of here unless you collect deactivated/historical firearms. The police here will also carry out a security check on your property before issuing your licence, eg window locks, cctv, location of property. Over here people very rarely have guns stolen from houses.. Oh and if indeed someone did gain access to my safe all they would end up with is a variety of expensive clubs. I keep all bolts and shotgun forends is separate places and pistol stuff somewher else too..!!

    Off topic, but wondering...do you folks have any sort of concealed or open carry of handguns?

    The primary security system here and in most of the Sothestern States is the Gun Rack in the back windshield of our pick up trucks and a dawg in the yard!
    I personally also have a house alarm!
    WE have the Second Amendment so no we don't play that police inspection stuff!

    Short answer..Only if you're wearing an LEO uniform, or police personal protection for politicians or royalty..!!

    ALL 'carry' is concealed. IE my firearms MUST be cased at all times, going to or coming from the range or wherever you shoot. AND.. if I were stopped by the police and I had, for example, a cased
    10/22. That's fine. BUT if they found a loaded magazine somewhere else in the case but NOT in the rifle, that would be considered to be me having a loaded firearm in a public place.. possible 5 years in choaky, fine and loss of licence forever..!!

    The same would apply if it were an air rifle.. though the penalties may not be as severe. Most LEO's over here, if confronted with a firearm, say in a search, would call in the Firearms Team. Most would not know how to make safe a pistol or rifle..!! In fact I knew a guy (now retired - thank God) who worked in my, then, local Firearms Registry. He was what is called here an FEO, Firearms Enquiry Officer. He makes house calls re security, vets applicants etc. This guy had never shot a gun of any type in his life, was totally anti-gun and would happily tell anyone who would listen that the only people to have arms should be the Armed Forces and the Police..!!!

    Not yet, but we are about one election away from it.

    Three handgun safes and three rifle safes. The loss of the cost of the gun can be replaced, but the lives a stolen gun can take cannot. I would love to be able to keep some of my lookers in a wooden gun cabinet with glass doors, but I just don't trust my fellow man enough to do that. The only gun or guns that are out are with me. At the moment a Glock 34, a Sig P365 and my four legged security system are all within reach. If that don't work I have a picture of my mother in law.

    Below are just a few photos from my dad’s “man cave”. It is actually an extra Lounge room/spare bedroom in my folks’ house. He has two other rooms in the house filled with guns lining the walls and hanging from nails hammered into beams. Those are unfinished spare attic rooms. But this is what you see when you enter the room. This is the environment in which I was raised; my dad is an 82 yo gun nut who has been actively shooting all his life - he was on his high school’s rifle team back in the late ‘40s-mid ‘50x - and began reloading in the ‘60s well after I came along. I don’t have near as many as he does and my wife wouldn’t let me display mine anyway so most are either locked up or well hidden and inaccessible.

    “Violent crime is feasible only when it’s victims are cowards. A victim who fights back makes the whole business impractical. - Col Jeff Cooper

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    Governments don’t create human rights; they either recognize them or suppress them

    I agree--IF I were to build house then I would likely outfit one room as a safe gun room, would likely be less money than a middle sized quality safe nd hold a lot more weapons, plus its really hard for me to move my 105 Howitzer in and out of the house even though it does have wheels.
