5 Good Reasons to Own Gun Safes

If you’re a brand new firearm owner you might be wondering why it is important to own a gun safe. Gun safes are usually expensive and bulky pieces of equipment that don’t seem to serve much purpose other than to keep your guns in an enclosed area. You might not feel the need to spend all of your hard earned money on something that is just going to keep you away from your new gun but let me tell you this: they are a necessity.

Here are five reasons I believe every gun owner should have at least one good gun safe in their home. You can’t keep your handgun under your pillow or in your nightstand forever, these things are dangerous weapons and shouldn’t be strewn about a household like a lazy cat. You’re liable to accidentally blow your hand off if you keep it up that way.

1. Keep Your Children Safe

If you own a gun and you have children you are in constant risk of them discovering your firearms and accidentally injuring themselves. You don’t want to have your child’s blood on your hands.

You can keep all of your guns in the gun safe and only you will know the access code to it. Your three year old won’t be able to stumble upon your weapon and do harm because it will be safely locked away. Your teenager won’t be able to show his friends Dad’s cool gun because he won’t be able to unlock the safe without your permission.

Save yourself from troublesome curious children, buy a gun safe.

2. You Will Be Safe From Theft

The great thing about gun safes is that not only do they keep people from getting in, they prevent thieves from taking your guns out. If I didn’t have a gun safe my weapons collection would have surely been stolen last Christmas when my house was broken into. Don’t let that happen to you, get a gun safe and get some piece of mind. No one will steal your guns.

3. Don’t worry about fire damage

You might be thinking: Okay well that’s well and good but what if a force of nature destroys my home. Won’t my guns be ruined then? Not if you own a gun safe. If you store your weapons in a fireproof gun safe they will be safe from intense heat. Most of them can last quite some time in severe temperatures.

4. Keep Other Valuable Safe

You don’t even have to own a gun to get a safe. You can store all of your other precious valuables in these secure boxes as well. All of the previous benefits apply.

5. Gun Safes Can Look Good Too

Gun safes provide that extra protection from life’s little hassles but a lot of them these days are being designed with aesthetics in mind. You can get some very nice looking gun safes that have glossy finishes and game embroideries on them. You can find a gun safe that will look good in any room of your house if you look hard enough these days.

There is really just no excuse not to own a safe if you own a gun. Play it safe and keep your guns locked up until you need to use them. That’s the best way to avoid accidents and it will keep your gun collection safe from harm.
