being able to ensure those who need it will have it in case something happens to you?

In other words, what are safe ways to record your safe's combination so it won't fall into the wrong hands?

A safety deposit box at a local bank perhaps?

Great question.

My wife knows the combination. But if something happened to both of us, nobody would know it or be able to get into it. I am exectutor of my parents' estate, but I don't have a clue what the combination to their safe is. I'll be interested to see the answers.

My wife and sons know the combination. If something happens to all of us I really don't care what happens to my guns after that.

She'll just have to hire a locksmith. She knows that the stuff is it there, and that it's valuable, but doesn't have or want to know the combo. She also knows that my desire is that she hold onto the guns, until the kids grow up. And she knows that the kids are my successors on my NFA trust.

I'm not sweating it...

How often do you change your combo? If never, I wonder if you can put it in your will.

In a safe deposit box seems easy or you could put it in an encrypted file on your/her computer. Google passkeeper for some free software.

Your will becomes public record and can be seen by anyone. That wouldn't be a good idea.

Mine is written down and locked in someone else's safe that I trust. And I have the combo to others locked in mine.

My wife and daughters all know the combo to the safe. They all get in there from time to time anyway. It is not written down anywhere.

I don't even know the combination, if it accidently locks I'm in trouble.

Funny!!

One person knows mine, I have my will and the business cards for my Estate Planner and my Financial planner on the top shelf. Everything is there in a folder when I croak.

Made this mistake never doing this with my Dad, swore I would never leave my beneficiary without a clue what I want, when I'm dead.

I also left an inventory of all my guns, with their approximate value and a list of who NOT to sell them to.

Safe #1 is keyed. I have a key, wife has a key, and another key is in safe #2.

Safe #2 uses a combination. If my wife forgets her own birth date, she will also forget the combination. As long as my daughters remember their mother's BD, they will know the combination too.

Do safes sit off the ground slightly? You could write the combination on the bottom so it could be read by someone who knew to look there using a mirror.
