Default Question For You Safe Owners???

Greetings All:

Just wondering how many of you folks with gun safes have a dehumidifier installed in them?? I just purchased another gun safe and was thinking of getting an electric dehumidifier that fits inside. There is a small hole on rear bottom of safe to install one if you want. Store has one for about $15.00. What's your thoughts on this????

For 15 bucks I'd go ahead with it. It can't hurt. By the way, I don't own a safe.

I have one, so I guess I vote in favor of it. As the others have stated, for 15-30 bucks...better safe than sorry.

My Cannon Gun Safe came with an outlet already built-in on the back for lighting and dehumidifier.

Yes I have a safe and yes I use a dehumidifier.

I use the dessicant cartridges that are removed from a compressed breathing air system. I just put them in the oven at low heat for a few hours to dry them out periodically and place them in the safe as a passive dehumidifier system. Seems to work, no problems so far. I do tend to give everything a wipe with oil when I put them away, though.
