Recommended storage is a lockable metal cabinet for security. You can get one at a used office supply store. If you really want to go all-out, get a fireproof cabinet that is used for storing flammable chemicals. If you have a surplus of ammo, you aren’t shooting enough!

Knot,,,yes a lockable metal cabinet would be ideal but no way the wife would allow that in the house. Also i have hundreds of board feet of some really nice oak that i would like to use. I dont think the turkeys, deer, dove, ducks, squirrels, hogs, etc would agree with you that im not shooting enough! haha

From my days in the fire department I noticed a lot of very flamable material that did not burn in very hot fires. It was all on the floor. Make it of wood so it will not transfer heat and store on the floor in a cool dry place.

You could use a metal cabinet and build a wood cabinet around it. To avoid theft, make it not look like an ammo cabinet. Disguise it as a table with a thick center section or a storage cabinet with a false back in it.

Good idea, Jim. Reminds me of the Clint Eastwood spaghetti western where the bank safe looked like a cabinet.

Have your say...
