Default Safe repair

So I noticed my shelves bowing down from all the weight of the ammo. Had to slap some supports under them. 8k rounds of various ammo will apparently do that. The Cannon S-33 shelves are not as strong as I hoped. If you buy a Cannon, slap the supports in before you start bowing your shelves.You can see the before picture where the ammo is starting to lean towards the center.

Ammunition is heavy.
My ammunition isn't valuable enough to be kept in a safe.

I got 18 guns crammed in there. No place to put ammo. I don't want a few thousand dollars worth of ammo laying around. Plus my neighbors kids been arrested for breaking into houses in the neighborhood twice already. Don't want to risk it , and fund his drug habit.

Those shelves still need support in the rear.
Maybe a locked footlocker to store the ammunition?

Replace the shelves with plywood? Those on the picture look like particle board.
