Many people wonder why they need to buy handgun safes when they can just store their guns in cupboards, drawers, or between the mattresses. In terms of security, however, these are far from good places to store your firearms.
Many homeowners who believe in owning guns for self-defence choose handguns. This isn’t surprising since, compared to larger firearms, a handgun is easier to store away and pull out for emergency situations.
Different Sub-Types of Handguns
The technical definition of a handgun is a firearm with a short barrel that can be used with one hand. Most people know about the two sub-types of handguns: the pistol and the revolver. But there are many other sub-types such as the machine pistol and derringer.
Older types of handguns also exist, but they’re now primarily kept as collector’s pieces and not for self-defence. Antique handguns in their original condition can be worth a lot of money — sometimes even valued at more than $5,000.
For this reason, many people choose to keep their antique guns in handgun safes instead of a protective box.
Can I Store Other Items in Handgun Safes?
A safe is a security solution for your valuables, whatever those valuables may be. While you can generally place any important or expensive item inside it, we do advise against storing items that can increase the humidity of the safe’s interior. Humidity can cause rusting on your firearms.
To be safe, only store dry items and use silicon packets to prevent moisture buildup that can cause damage to the contents.
