Where in your home do you store ammo
I have accumulated thousands of rounds of ammo during the past 6 months. It's all kept in steel military canisters in my bedroom closet.

Where do do you keep yours.

On a high shelf in the locked bedroom walk in closet where my son can not get to it.

I thought about keeping it in that drawer under the oven but something told me that probably was not the best idea.

some in my firearms mags, the rest on a shelf next to said firearm.... i tried putting them in my pillow cases but that made it too hard to sleep.

Accumulating thousands of rounds, craziness. ;)

This entire time I've been led to believe that ten was the limit and more than efficient. :rolleyes:

We do NOT store it in the thread for website suggestions.

(Relax- just moved it over to the right section. No harm, no foul :D)

GI ammo cans make good storage- that is what they were designed to do.

For myself.....

GI ammo cans (a bunch of them) in my climate controlled garage.

One may well consider a designated safe just for ammo. My ammo safe has walls the thickness of my Glock, solid steel, and is 3 feet square. It sits atop another safe I keep gold, jewelry and important papers in. The lower safe weighs 5,000 pounds and is moved via forklift. Forklift stacked the two safes together, that now sit 6'7" tall. Naturally, I siliconed the two safes together. lol

Price I payed for these two safes? Free. Look around, older (better) safes get left behind. Contact a business realtor, auction house, lock smith.

The top safe is full, of many ammo cans, wish the bottom safe was full. lol

IMHO, it is not prudent, to store a cache of ammo, or firearms, outside a safe. Pretty good video I discovered on new safes.

In my gun waiting for BG's looking for my stuff!

I store most of my ammo in my gun room. Reloading supplies are there too. I keep a shotgun and a couple boxes of ammo in the bedroom.

I will be keeping one bullet taped inside my hat for an emergency.

I will buy my second bullet when prices come down.
