My new gun closet
I have not really needed a "secure" location for my firearms as my house is pretty much never empty and the two dogs take care of "unexpected" visitors (lol...Jehovah's witness does stay long at the door).
I did think however; what about the very few times the house is empty and should someone get past the dogs, I don't want to make it easy for them. So I converted my office closet into my gun closet.
solid wood door, deadbolt key lock. Can it be broken into ? Sure - with a crowbar, time and effort but short of a gun safe (which is expensive and not on the wife's top 10 wish list), it means I can feel a bit better should someone steal something and use it. I did my part so to speak. This topic has been gone over before (so not looking to start that). I don't have to do it. I choose to do it.
Besides, now all my STUFF is in one place...LOL
