I was certain that's what he meant. I don't have a dehumidifer in mine, but I do keep a gauge in there, and I do keep Silica packs laying on the shelves and floor. It keeps my safe in the DRY range.

This does give me an idea. I'm going to look at measurements, and see about hooks in the bottom of the top shelf that goes all the way across the top where I keep my handguns. Maybe I hang my cases and have space on the floor of the safe for ammo, and back up drivers etc.

I would try to keep mine on a door rack and keep the pistol boxes outta the safe, all the paperwork in safe so no need to waste room with case...Whatya think..

I'm think I need to buy another safe. Either a smaller ammo only safe, or another one the size I have now, or maybe even a bigger and better one than I have now. But damn, I'm barely squeeking by, and I want to get a few more guns before any possible ban might hit. I'm thinking this ban isn't going to happen, but it sure makes for a good excuse to just have to go out and buy more guns don't it? Although, I REFUSE to pay gouge prices.

A girl I know in AZ, decided FINALLY she wanted a gun. She got her head taken off on S&W Shield 9mm for $589.00 + tx at a local gun store this past weekend. Fuggin retail is $449.00 at the S&W site, and I can buy it here at Academy for $399.00. Just that I have to get there first thing Mon, Wed or Friday morning or they'll be sold out by Noon. I like Academy right now. They are not gouging anyone and even selling guns below Suggested Retail in most cases. Glocks $529 for Gen3 9mm, .40 and .357Sigs, S&W SD's are $299. Shield $399.

I sure agree with that. I'm just thinking I want 1 bigger one. The bigger the better and harder to steal or carry off. The one I have now it about the side of an 18cu ft fridge.

Another safe would not ever hurt ya. You can use any extra space for other important stuff, beats going to the safety deposit box for any other paperwork.....but I feel ya on the guns, I'm trying to save I should be able to get another pistol and another shotgun..

Bolted down, I don't worry either, so maybe I should get another the same size. I know I'll need to move them someday.

That's a fact. When I bought this one over 10 years ago, I thought it was plenty big enough and I'd never out grow it. That didn't take long. Amazing what all finds a home in the gun safe when you get one. Photo Albums, Hard drive back ups, legal docs, spare keys, narcotic perscriptions, medical recoreds and films etc. I've moved alot of that out of there now though and still need more space without tearing up the guns. Scratching, dinging and scuffing them up. Pissin me off.
