Avoid Gun Accidents With These Gun Storage Safety Tips
- by Admin 1
As a gun owner, you know that one of the most important aspects of gun storage is safety. Outfitting your collection with locks, keeping your guns away from children, and using discreet concealment furniture & decor are all great ways to make sure that your guns are stored safely. One huge component of safe gun storage is organization.
Keeping your gun collected organized is easier than you might think! Here are some tips to help you keep your gun storage organized for optimum safety.
Use concealment furniture or a gun safe
Using concealment furniture or a gun safe are great ways to keep your guns organized while protecting your home. Concealment furniture and decor both provide easy access to your guns by keeping them hidden in plain sight. Our products allow for the storage of a maximum of three guns. Usually, these will be the guns that you use often or want to have quick access to in case of an emergency, like a home intruder.
For a more long-term gun storage solution, use a gun safe. Antique guns and firearms that are not used frequently should be stored in a gun safe or another type of proper storage container. Do not use containers coated in cardboard, sheepskin, or foam, for long-term storage as they all collect moisture over time, and are detrimental to the longevity of your gun.
In a situation where you need quick access to your gun, you don’t want to be fumbling around trying to find the firearm that you’re looking for. For general safety reasons, you also don’t want your gun loosely sliding around in it’s hiding spot. Liberty Home Concealment makes it easy to avoid clutter by offering both Kaizen foam and Grid-It elastic organizers to keep your concealment furniture and decor organized.
If you are using a gun safe for long-term storage, it is a little easier to become unorganized. Thankfully, there are seemingly unlimited options for gun safe organization that you can implement on your own. Smaller guns can find themselves in a pile at the bottom of your safe which is neither a safe or effective use of space. Installing gun magnets, handgun hangers, and magazine hangers are great ways to keep your smaller guns organized and easily accessible.
For your larger guns, you can use rifle rods or magnetic barrel rests to keep your guns uncluttered as well as stored pointing in the right direction.
Store your gun appropriately
If you used the gun-safe organization accessories mentioned above, your guns should automatically be stored in the right direction, just by nature of the product. If not, a common safe gun storage practice is to store your gun with the muzzle pointed away from you in case of accidental discharge. This practice also plays into gun storage organization because it ensures that your guns are safely accessible when you need them.
