Actually have thought that an old refridgerator / freezer with a lock would make a good safe or ammo storage. There are many options as well for locking cabinets and other furniture designed for locking up and staging firearms.
That might work to keep curious kids out or maybe a smash and grab thief who is in a very big hurry. But a pry bar or hammer would have that open in less than 30 seconds. My original “safe” was a stack on locking cabinet. I still use it for ammo but a determined person could get into it with a couple minutes effort. You can get sturdy locking tool boxes at hardware stores that might provide a little more protection.
as my dad used to say: a pad lock only keeps honest ppl honest.
been searching online for a safe and it looks like I might have to have a made in China model. The weekend is coming up and will go to the box stores around me and see what they have. don’t have any dealers close to me.
When I was in the Army Reserve, we kept our M-60s in the arms room in a tool box, the heavy kind meant to be bolted into the bed of a truck, locked with two Abus Discus padlocks
Purchased mine long before EMPs were being tossed around.
Can the keypad be replaced?
