At some point, gun owners with serious collections need to invest in a safe. Even if you don’t think you have a serious collection, add up the value and you might find it is worth a few thousand dollars. If so, a $2,000 investment is pretty wise to make sure your guns stay put if someone breaks in and stay safe if fire breaks out.
One Oklahoma gun owner is learning that lesson a little too late. A thief broke down his back door and discovered his collection was not stored in a safe. The thief made off with 34 guns with an estimated value of $23,000. Let’s hope he has insurance to cover the guns. Some homeowner’s policies cap the payment for guns or restrict how many they are willing to cover. But even so, a few thousand bucks would have saved him this head/heartache.
