An old friend called today and we were talking about keeping guns around the house with all the kids, my son's not mine, running around. He said he keeps his Colt in a wood cigar box. I have several of them around the house but have never given it much thought. I haven't smoked cigars in years. Does anyone see any chance of damage from the wood? I believe the boxes are cedar but not 100% sure. They are nice boxes that contained charming cigars straight from Havana. Still has the Republic De Cuba Tax Stamp right next to the "Cohiba burned into the wood. I think it would be a neat way to store the gun and the kids know to stay out of the cigar box.
