Storing Firearms Safely ǀ Locksmiths Chapel Hill, NC

A-1 Lock and Safe are locksmiths in Durham, NC and Chapel Hill, NC. We offer car, residential, and commercial locksmith services. We also sell new and used safes.

As locksmiths, your safety is our top priority, and we know that firearms are a security option for some. So, here are some tips on how to store your firearm safely and properly:

  • If you have children in the home, it is especially important you keep firearms out of their reach. Place your firearm in a safe or a lock box in an area that your children won’t be able to reach it or easily find it.
  • If you are going out of town and you want to keep your firearms safe from potential burglars, do not hide your firearms in obvious places like the master bedroom and closet. Also, if you have a safe that can be easily transported and taken by burglars, do not have it sitting in plain sight.
  • Store your ammunition in a separate location from the firearm. Also, store your firearm unloaded and with the safety lock on. That way, even if it is found, it is inoperable.

If you are interested in a safe to store your firearms and other valuables, we sell both new and used safes. For all of your locksmith needs in Durham and Chapel Hill, NC, contact us at A-1 Lock and Safe where your safety is our first priority.
