Perhaps you inherited your grandpa’s twenty-two. Or, maybe you collect firearms as a hobby. Perhaps you took a conceal and carry course and bought a gun for personal protection. Whatever your reason for owning a firearm, you’ll want to keep it protected in a gun safe.
Protect Your Investment
Buying a new firearm is not something you do lightly. It takes a lot of research, several trips to the store, and consulting with experts, before you decide which one to purchase. If you’re an avid hunter, you probably have a selection of weapons of varying caliber for the different hunts you go on throughout the year. Protecting your investments is the perfect reason to purchase a gun safe. Every year thousands of guns are stolen from collectors and sportsmen alike. Thieves sell the guns with little thought to how they will be used. By keeping your firearms under lock and key you will keep your guns in your home.
Protect Your Family
Though you teach your kids proper gun safety, and you even pay for them to take the hunter’s safety course, your kid’s friends may not have the same training. If it’s your kid’s friend holding the gun, who is that gun pointed at? Just one curious child can cause a lifetime of regret. Gun safes save hundreds of lives every year by keeping firearms out of sight and out of mind. If someone gets the brilliant idea to check out dad’s guns; they won’t be able to open the lock and will quickly loose interest and move on to other activities. Your gun safe will be working hard to protect your family whether you’re home or not.
Protect Your Assets
Gun safes don’t only hold guns. Many are equipped with shelving to hold other valuables such as wills, jewelry and business papers. The safes are fireproof so even if you don’t have a burglary problem, you’re protected against other disasters. Gun safes come in many different shapes and sizes. You can get ones that fit under your bed or in the back corner of your closet. Knowing that your firearms collection and personal papers are residing in a gun safe will bring you peace of mind. You can share that peace of mind by letting your spouse store the family photo discs and a few special items in there as well. Nothing is more important than your family and a gun safe will look after them almost as thoroughly as you do.
