You don't want to put all your eggs in one basket. If you have a safe or steel locker that would work. I found a local LGS that had ammo cans for $7 ea. You don't want dirtbags to know all your hiding places! At $1/rd, it's like pots of gold in convent storage box. After you have been broken in to, you don't want to tell too much info.

For now I have them in ammo cans in my bedroom closet. But im going to get a job box and lock up my ammo inside of the cans in side of the job box. They weigh almost 200lbs empty and add a few thousand rounds and that thing will weight a hefty ammount.

Sorry to shatter expectations, but I can see that you are new and will forgive you.

My son and I know the location(s), but ammo cans are the container. All are generally shielded from temperature extremes and moisture.

In my dreams this is what it looks like.


But I am still waiting to buy my second bullet.

Ammo should be kept cool and dry.

I store mine in sealed ammo cans with dessicant packs in the can, on the floor of my basement workshop.

Every 3 months, I open the cans and dry the dessicant.
(Two hours at 200 degrees in the electric oven.)

I keep my handgun ammo in a small cabinet above the gun safe. I keep shotgun ammo in a military ammo box. in the "gun room" I keep my .357 in a concealed safe in the master bedroom suite, and a box of ammo with it. I have a single shot shotgun on the wall in the library, and a box of shells hidden behind some books.
