Gun "storage" porn

I'm looking into buying a good safe to store my guns. However, I'm in the mood for something different also, and was looking for ideas.
For instance, my uncle recently built a large portion onto his house. He added 2 concrete tornado/safe rooms, one for the family and one for the guns.
Anybody have any unusual ways of storing their guns? I'm really interested if you have any ideas.

Re: Gun "storage" porn

I personally am building a new home in about a month. The master bedroom bath closet (10X12 for the wife) will have a dressing table in the middle with drawers, and between the drawer backs inside will be my safe.

And I like closet safes too. As long as they are not external closets.

Sounds good. What do you do for the door? I guess the best option would be one made from steel I assume?

Re: Gun "storage" porn

You look up a company on line that sells safe doors and something that fits your build.Mine where hung at the concrete opening.Say door is 30''x 6-8'', you get info for concrete opening,which will be a bit larger for the metal frame that door hangs off, the door looks just like a gun safe door and dial or keypad options.Can be benefit to have door installed as it is heavy and most provide this service at a cost.They work good in a lower level of house with concrete foundation, but being creative, Im sure you could make a good secure room with wood frame and other products with some research

Re: Gun "storage" porn

I talked to an engineer buddy of mine about making a "gun room" in an existing building. His recomendation was to frame it with metal studs (fire proof) and then sheet it with doubled 5/8" plywood to prevent anyone from busting through with a sledgehammer (can happen with cinder block) and then sheeting that with double 5/8" sheetrock for fireproofness (good word). A sledge will just bounce off the plywood for a long time and the sheetrock will fireproof the room for quite a while. This also depends on what is above and below the room but it was a start. Good luck with it.
