    ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - Gun owners headed for Busch Stadium may soon no longer have to leave their firearms in the car. Starting in mid-July, Paddy O`s Bar next to Busch Stadium is going to allow a specially outfitted armored truck to use its overflow back parking lot to provide lawful gun owners a place to lock up any firearms they want to carry with them between the parking lots and the stadium. It is an idea born of tragedy. Following the shooting of Chris Sanna last year as he was leaving a Cardinals game, Justin Hulsey, a National Guard...

    The capital of New York State has joined other cities in restricting the ability for gun owners to store them in their own home. A law has come into effect passed by the City Council requiring all guns to be locked in safes or using a gun lock at home. The police is handing out free locks, but stiff penalties are planned for anyone that does not comply. The Albany Times Union reported on the new law. First offenses will be violations carrying a fine of $250 or up to 15 days in jail so long as no one is...

    Not long ago, I was in the market for a small handgun safe. After visiting a local gun shop and bringing home something made by GunVault, I took my new safe out of its box, and wondered if I’d spent too much. Up close, the device looked insubstantial. A nagging suspicion motivated me to go online, where I quickly discovered research by Marc Tobias and Tobias Bluzmanis of Investigative Law Offices and Security Laboratories. Their work confirmed my suspicion about the safe. It could be broken into easily. Tobias and Bluzmanis, who specialize in evaluating security systems, did an analysis...

    Hey, Gang... Picked up a pistol the other day. Mine, a Glock, came with a lock from the manufacturer. While there, I overheard an exchange going on between the fellow in line next to me and the salesman. The salesman asked him if he had a gun safe. Customer said yes. Salesman then whipped out a form that required the customer to answer a number of questions. All I got was... make, model, and number of guns. WTF! Don't the bastards keeping all this data on us have a database that tells them the number of guns each model holds???...
  • Gun Safes: Anyone use Zerust VC2-2 NoRust Vapor Capsules? (Vanity)

    On a gun site, someone suggested using the Zerust VC2-2 NoRust Vapor Capsules insides of a gun safe to prevent rust. They said these are used for metal parts in shipping containers. Was curious if anyone has used these over an extended period of time, as I am concerned these are made for short term use and not about long-term viability with guns.

    looking at the option of a modular gun safe. I like the idea of being able to get a big , heavy safe without needing to deconstruct the house to get one in or hiring 5 guys to move it. I'm wanting one that's "fire safe" for 30+ minutes and weighs at least 500 LBS. anyone own a modular safe or have experience with them?

    Just a question to those FReepers with knowledge of gun safes. I recently purchased a gun safe. I was wondering if anyone has bolted their to the floor. If so, how would one go about doing such a thing. I have a concrete floor where the safe is, and I've never bolted anything into concrete. My safe weighs nearly 700lb, and I wonder if it's worth the trouble. Thanks!

    We have recently cubed the number of guns we had four months ago and are shopping for gun safes. We're also trying to figure out where to put them in the house, thinking we'd like a safe of some sort at each end. Any suggestions for brand names, styles of safes, and good locations? We have two children, ages 7 and 9, who are fairly gun savvy, but we still need to keep the guns secure.

    August 14th, 2008 @ 11:24pm By Sarah Dallof There were some tense moments inside a local sporting goods store when three boys playing around climbed inside a gun vault and their friend shut the door. The vault had a fail-safe, a common combination that should open every lock in the store, but it didn't work. Firefighters say the safe was 4 feet high, 4 feet wide and 2 feet deep, good for holding up to 45 guns, but not so good for three children. Fourteen-year-old Myan was all smiles as he left Dick's Sporting Goods, but earlier this evening he...

    Long Live The Second Amendment! Hi all, I am looking for recommendations for gun safe makers, models and features. I do not have a particularly large gun collection and it will probably never be that large. Probably never beyond 4-5 long guns and 4-5 pistolas. As I happen to have other small objects of value I also want to be able to store other items in this safe and keep everything safe from fire damage should my humble abode "ketch far". I have done some research and my gunsmith has his recommendations. But I know there is alot of firearms...
