Weapon Storage 101: Storing Your Firearms

April 3, 2019

Weapon storage is an important part of firearm safety. With so many storage options to choose from, it can be tricky to know which is best for your weapons. There’s a range of size, cost and features to understand before choosing the solution that optimizes your space while, most importantly, keeping safety in mind.

Safe weapon storage

Whichever safe or storage system you end up choosing, there are hard rules about how to properly and safely store your firearms. They must be stored unloaded, with their ammunition kept in a separate location. The firearm should be stored in a locked location. Guns should be laid horizontally, or with the muzzle pointing down. If stored upright, oil can drain onto the stock, or form a film on the action.

As for the storage container, it should be dry and cool. When people store guns in gun cases, moisture can accumulate, which can damage the firearm. Finally, displaying guns in display cases where visitors, including unwanted visitors or children, can easily see them is a big mistake. It is recommended that you purchase a proper weapon storage system for storing your firearms.

Scalable tactical weapons armorers

Armorers provide a large quantity of room for a variety of items to be stored and organized in a limited amount of space. They are adaptable to the space allowed and the types of equipment that need to be stored. High density options allow you to increase your capacity, and cabinets placed on a mobile aisle system make them even more flexible and movable.
