My good guns are elsewhere, out of sight (and mind).
Reason being is that if someone broke in (when we weren't home and got by the human eating dogs that is...), The obvious gun safe in the bedroom closet would be the target of the perp's intent to commit burgulary and the good guns, out of sight, elsewhere, would be spared.... I hope.
No matter what safe you get, they all are pretty easy to get into (with the right tools or a 5 pound drilling hammer, cold chisel and some determination on the perp's part). A safe just slows down the process a bit and buys you some time, but, if you aren't home, the perp has enought time to steal your sruff, anyway....
The best insurance against loss is to have them insured for the actual replacement value. Something I do through the NRA's insurance program (not intended as a plug for the NRA)..... Most homeowner insurance policies only cover loss of firearms up to $2500.00 and that might cover one firearm and optic....might and, with your homeowners policy, you are bound by the deductible out of your pocket. With supplementary insurance, there is no deductible.
The insurance isn't that expensive either.
Better safe and covered than sorry and gunless.
