    Quick Access gun cabinets

    Do you use a quick access cabinet for home defence?

    Here is my set up. The lower is bolted into the floor and the top safe is bolted into the lower safe for important papers. Yeah, I know it is not much, but it is better than nothing.

    I used to have a Gardall 1818/12, (sold it since taking the photo), and now my hand guns live in the old 1947 Protectall that I restored myself.

    Here's the Protectall the day I bought it on Craigslist for $100

    Here she is a few months later after working on it on the weekends:

    I tinker with locks and safes as one of my other hobbies, so if you ever need a recommendation on a good padlock, deadbolt, safe, CCTV cameras, or other physical security question, feel free to hit me up.

    I certainly don't have anything as nice as that American Security safe, I wish I could afford to do something like that. Seems like I'm always having something happen that evaporates my spending money! For example this week, not only did my kitchen range start to fail, but this morning I got up and opened the refrigerator and it was warm, and the freezer contents were sadly soft. Considering they were both 16 years old, it was apparent that we needed new appliances. Bye, bye mad money!! Anyway, I've got a 10 gun Stack On safe that works better than nothing! It's bolted to the wall and I've got my scattergun on one of those mattress racks, along with various handguns stashed around the house. I have no children and no guests that I have to worry about getting into something they shouldn't. If there ever is a situation that warrants concern, my hideaways go into a safe. Maybe we could have a safe as a giveaway grand prize!! Whatcha think Austin?

    Here are the safes at my vacation home. One for valuable papers, keys to toys and a few hand guns, Another Stack On 10 rifle safe for my long guns, and another smaller Stack On safe for my ammunition.

    The American Security BF 6030 series are really unique. They have a steel plate door for dry insulation purposes. Thanks for sharing the details.
