Re: Gun "storage" porn

I HAD THE ROOMS inclosed in concrete.The doudle wall of steel studs and 5/8 ply ,I could cut a access in there in minutes with a cordless sawsall.Say you have a pop out 10x10 entry, the concrete walls just follow wall on deck line as part of lower level,easy to design in.You can use concrete block, just run your hrizontal steel ever 4 ' up and run verticles at 2' centers and you pump the cell full with a grout pump.This is a standard rated foundation in residental and you can up the block size from 8" if you want more strength.Our local HomeDepot and like stores are concrete block buildings

OK sp6x6, you have a very valid point. I hadn't put a whole lot of thought into it so far, just ideas for thought. Back to the drawing board for me. ;-)

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.
This is not actually a bad idea with some modifications. I worked industrial construction for almost 20 yrs. One of the most secure facilities I worked on was a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility ) Basically a room that was secure and protected from all forms of eavesdropping. The room was framed with 12ft heavy gauge 2x8 metal studs on 8" centers for the walls and ceiling. the studs were cross-braced between the studs. Once the electrical was run and other penetrations were done it was cover with 2 layers of some kind of composite board 1/2 thick on either side and the double 1/2" drywall. the room had a raised floor and copper mesh on all concrete walls before the inner walls were built. There is no way a sawzall would cut through that wall in any reasonable amount of time. You could accomplish similar strength with 2x6's or 2x8's on 8 in centers, double 1/2" or 3/4" plywood sheeting and double drywall. You'd be hard pressed to defeat that wall with a chain saw in a reasonable time. You could even throw some rebar in there ever few feet to slow down your average saws.
