Look for the dirty underwear you wiped the rifle down with.

Re: Weird smell

Cloves - as in spices. Sprinkle on floor and shelves,close door for a week, vacuum up and see where you are at.
2nd option - set a couple of open boxes of baking soda in case,close door, repeat as necessary.
3rd and best option - find the source of smell and eliminate it.

Re: Weird smell

Baking soda is very good to freshen things up. Also a few apples tossed in will absorb the smell. But I would also consider a large trap. It could be Obama or one of his gun lords sneaking in to take your firearms at night leaving the foul smell.

Store your old money in a different safe! They find out you have GUNS AND MONEY you are in for trouble!

Re: Weird smell

You may have water, from hunting in the rain, trapped in the stock of a shotgun. It runs in through the action spring housing and gets trapped. Not only will it rust your gun but can mildew and stink. Just a thought. I had to drill drain holes in the recoil pads on my waterfowl guns.

Re: Weird smell

Moisture is probably the culprit. I had a foul odor in my safe a few years ago but it was totally different. I had my safe open for a few hours while I was doing some work and just closed it up afterwards. A day and a half later, my wife was asking where one of her cats was, and if I had seen it. Turns out this cat had climbed into the bottom cubbyhole and I locked her in the safe. Luckily, she didn't relieve herself in there, but she did claw the carpet on the door up pretty good.
