Protect your weapons in a quality gun safe

When you own firearms you need to keep them safe and away from untrained hands. A gun safe is the preferable method of choice to protect weapons. A quality gun safe will not only protect your firearms from theft but also against a house fire. When shopping around make sure you don't overlook the fundamental benefits of owning a quality gun safe.

Choose a gun safe that offers fire protection.
The type of fireproof materials used determines the amount of heat a safe might be able to withstand. Most companies use gypsum fire board rated at 1200 degrees for 30 minutes, while others use ceramic wool rated at 2300 degrees for 60 minutes. In either case the inside temperature of the safe will not exceed 350 degrees. There are no standards on how to insulate a safe and is up to the manufacturer to use the materials they feel work best.

Lastly, ask lots of questions and gather as much information as possible before buying a gun safe. Make sure to get the best protection for your money and do not rush when choosing between products. Furthermore, remember to carefully choose quality over price.
