Effects of Gun Safes
For most gun owners, it would be strongly recomended that you use gun safes as your storage for your guns. When you compare
a gun owner who stores a gun in a safe to one who chooses to hide his/or her gun, you will find that the owner with a safe
has a 65% better chance of not getting injured from guns in that home. The owners who hide their guns in places where
they think they are safe increase their percent of being injured by 45%.
Types of Safes
The most common gun safe that is used today would have to be what is considered a basic safe. It's a small, black, metal
safe that uses combinations to open it. It's the kind of safe that you store a handgun in, and store in a small area such
as a drawer or a cabinet.
Another safe that people use to store firearms is a 6x4 safe (6 feet tall, 4 feet wide). This safe you can store over
ten firearms inside. It is very good for storing rifles and such firearms that take up more room. You could also store whatever
else you feel necessary to keep locked up.
