I'd hope there would be some way to open the door from the inside. It would SUCK to get locked in there. Oh wait, there's tons of guns in there. maybe spending a day locked in there wouldn't be so bad.

Yeah, I could think of worse places to get locked in...

Was thinking that would be a great safe/panic room...(assuming it's fortified)

Tornado hits, house demolished, debris everywhere and they could still at least open the door...

That is all well and good, however, if you could afford that, you could afford to have a hired gorilla keep watch over your stuff.

I don't see it being THAT expensive, especially if you do the work yourself. The book cases are a little too fancy for my tastes, so they could be simplified. The room itself is just a room. If you want it reinforced, concrete is always an option. I'm not sure about fireproofing, but there's probably a way to do that as well.

The vault door while pricy, is still not prohibitively expensive for someone who is willing to save up for something like this. A quick google search found one for $1800. With more time, you could probably find a good quality door for less.

Then again, we're also talking storing a lot of guns. This would not be that great for someone with only a few guns. If you have quite a collection on the other hand, it would be great. It just depends on what you want.

Some people may be happy with 3 or 4 large gun safes. Personally, if I ever get THAT many guns, I would rather have a single gun room.

A buddy of mine has an old bank vault door. I have always wanted to build a room that could use it!
