Alternative to safes?

Post by gman68w » October 11th, 2018, 8:54 pm

This past month's weather has raised the issue of what is, and what is not, easily transportable from home to shelter and back again. Among them are safes.

I need a multi-gun case that's lockable with a padlock, and has a hitch or something that I can chain to a wall or something. (reference: Jeff Foxworthy's bit about portable safes).

The most portable/low impact solution that I've found is a pair of handcuffs.
I've passed 4 pistol trigger guards through one hand cuff and locked them together then attached the other handcuff to a water pipe or car seat frame.

That sounds.....functional. But I'm looking for something that LLE won't raise an eyebrow at, should they have a need to stop by.

Depending on the departments attitude towards the local peasantry traveling armed a small NBC equipped bunker in your vehicle may not be deemed acceptable. Before purchasing a "mobile safe" please check you tube or vimeo for the locksmith guy that shows how incredibly easily most of these safes are defeated. It is astounding how a Kalifornia DOJ approved portable safe can be open without a key or combination in under 10 seconds.

Not that kind of shelter. I had to leave my house for flooding, and stay with someone else. I just want something I can keep chained to a wall at the place I'm staying.

Oh, I misunderstood, sorry. I had to make a temporary secure space once too and I used a Stack On gun cabinet. I set it on a concrete block in the basement of the temporary abode with the back against the steel support collum the centerline house supports were resting on and then wrapped a 3/4 inch plastic coated hardened marine chain with pancake style high security padlock around it and the support beam. Cabinet could neither be moved nor opened with the chain around it and the chain could not be slid off the cabinet as it was bolted in place to the support beam through one of the holes pre drilled in the support collum. Worked well enough for temp and was realitivly cheap and would have to be worked on hard for some time with the proper tools to be defeated.
