I think its about time to invest in a bigger gun safe or buying another one the same size! Also im thinking about taking out the shelves on the left side so i can add more long guns then putting the ammo and stuff somewhere else. What would you do?

I took all the stuff on the shelves out and put more long guns inside. I have pistols on the top shelf and misc valuables on the bottom of the safe. It was cheaper than buying a new safe but I did have to take items out. My ammo is no longer locked up in the safe.

buy a 30 gun safe and make it a point to fill it up

First of all I wouldn't post pics of the inside of the safe with all your stuff in it. IMO

Buy a smaller safe to put all ammo in if you are not going to be getting alot more guns. But if you tend to acquire guns I would get the biggest you can afford and keep or sale the one you have for extra storage.

I'd start saving for a safe three times bigger than you think you need. You'll fill it by the end of the year.

better have it bolted to the ground. i have the same size safe bolted down 9 times into the slab with 1/2 anchors and 1/4 inch plate backing the bolts so they wont rip out of the bottom. this is in the corner of a closet that i keep locked. before i set the safe in place i cut the carpet so no would be robber could wedge a crow bar in between the safe and carpet. i feel safe that it will never leave...

lol I think for now Iíll take out the ammo and move the shelves. Now with me having my FFL I will defiantly be acquiring more guns! And as for posting the pick itís not like I have the combo in florescent orange on the pick for everyone to see and yes it is bolted to the ground. so you can try to come in it but one ill shoot you and two Iím on a military instillation so your a$$ would be caught at the gate lol. Good stuff

I got one helluva deal from a buddy a couple months ago on a safe. It is the Redhead that BPS sells for about $1200. It's rated for something like 1250 degrees for an hour.

He bought it and had it in his garage and never used it one time. I casually asked him one day, if your not going to use it, sell it to me. He said give me 350 cash and it's yours!

I love it (and it's full too..) Worst part was moving the damn thing!!

Gut it out and reconfigure the racks. This one was originally meant to hold about 12-14 long guns. It now holds 24. Just an idea.

Or you could do what I did and rank my guns. Those that had the highest ranking made it into the safe. The others are under beds and in closets behind clothes.

Thanks for compliments guys.

4EverFirearms - sorry didn't mean to jack your tread or anything. I really just wanted to show you what could be done with a small safe. Honestly your safe and mine aren't much different size-wise. I might be just a little taller and wider but it's minimal at best. My safe just looks big because I managed to get so much in there. What I like about this design is no 2 guns touch...anywhere. Yes, it's very tight, no it's not perfectly ideal but it works for me. It was my fathers safe so it meant alot to me to keep it and make the best of it. It took me about a few days to do a rough design on paper and then an entire weekend to build, carpet, wire and install everything. I could of moved much faster but I wanted it right so I was very meticulous about everything I did. I think what I love the most is with the guns removed; the shelf, racks and lights all come out in one piece. Also too, all the lights are linked together and can be disconnected with one plug. Give it a shot, I'm definitely not a carpenter but this worked out pretty well.
