Just leave one out when you're home, just in case.
When my brother-in-law divorced his first wife (serious bitch), he was working for my father's firm; he showed up at like 9PM at Dad's house with at least two dozen long guns to stash in an upstairs bedroom. He had already stashed his pistols in the fireproof file cabinet in his office. That man has his priorities straight, IMO.

The police have the numbers and pics and they're on the national list. He's on the police report as a suspect. If just one shows up and can be tracked back to him he's going away for a long time.

I have a safe that I hardly ever use. Mainly because my rifles need to be at the ready for critters and I am always carrying my pistol. About the only time that I do lock them in the safe is when I know that I will be gone all day.

I worry about placing a heavy safe in an awkward location. Has anyone had experience with the SNAPSAFE™TITAN Closet Vault? It is only 330 lbs and is assembled in place. But, I wonder about its resistance to a break in. ref: http://snapsafe.com/titansafe.php

I have 3 boys. I'm sure I could trust the older 2 not to touch my guns, but I can't trust my 7 year old. It would be foolish to trust any of them. I keep pistols locked in a safe with a pushbutton mechanical combination lock unless they are on me.

A friend and co-worker told me that our insurance company, USAA, only insures guns for up to about $300 or so.

If at all possible, it is certainly best to take guns from a car into a home only from a dark area, or disguised in a large container with a different shape.
Anything is better than letting strangers passing by (even neighbors) spot a gun bag etc.

Some, even neighbors, will talk about it, and nobody can predict whether the next guy to hear about it is a brother-in-law etc who has a drug problem etc, or is just a straight career criminal.

Orangello:
I read about a guy who bought a bunch of east European 7.62x54R ammo at about an 80-90% discount from a co-worker who had taken her husband's ammo, and maybe also the guns for quick cash.
She had probably followed the standard female trick of having the house locks changed. Young guys-be aware of this.
Women gladly "circle the wagons", and quickly advise each other on very practical ways to divorce men and control the situation, with little or no warning...

She said that the (Bulgarian, Serbian or Russian) ammo cans had "funny-looking words on them".

We have 3 safes. One giant one lag bolted to the floor in our bedroom. Try decorating around that beast.
Tall Shogun Safes - Homeland Security Safe Company

and then a push button pistol safe for our pistols right next to the bed

and then a biggish one in our hunt/fish room.

I should probably count our guns LOL we have a *few*

Our insurance offers a rider for a teeny bit of money for the appraised/replacement value of our firearms
