Some people own guns for protection, others have guns to hunt, others collect guns. No matter the reason or the type of gun, it is extremely important that guns be stored safely. Gun storage helps to prevent accidents from happening and unwanted hands away from firearms.

There are various ways to store your firearms, depending on the type of gun you have: If you have a single, smaller firearm, a portable, storable gun case could be a great option for you. This allows you to keep your gun easily accessible but also locked away. For larger guns or larger gun collections, a gun safe is ideal. If you have a gun collection that you would like to display, you can use a gun cabinet or case with a glass display (just be sure it has a lock).

No matter what type of gun storage you choose to use, be sure that you keep it locked and that you keep the key separate from the safe/case. Hide the key in an area that a child or intruder would not normally lock in order to ensure the safety of your guns.
