    I just cleaned and checked all my mags for my BCM AR and FN FNX 45.

    I have about 500 rounds for each. I’ve been meaning to pick up a standard Mossberg 12 gauge. Might do it sooner rather than later.

    Definelty feel like a prepper but idc now that I have a family to look after.

    Not a prepper but have plenty of cases of ammo. What's this civil unrest about, corona, bernie, twitter go down?

    So I wanna build my first 300 blackout. Wanna run it suppressed, can't decide between pistol and SBR, thinking ~8" barrel. Also I think I want the Law Tactical folder. Budget: idk, $3500? Been doing a little research and there's just so many options its overwhelming. Help me gun snobs!

    Budget is flexible. I know there's a point of diminishing returns with this stuff and that's something else I'm still trying to figure out.

    Hopefully it’s super flexible along with your timeline. My last stamp took 9 months.

    Yeah I’m aware of the waiting period. That’s why I want to go ahead and get a lower receiver so I can do the stamp application.

    What kind of gun safes do you guys have? I’m not looking for something crazy just a little fire protection and to keep them locked up from the kids.

    I got this when it was on sale for like $250 or $300. It was the largest I could transport in my vehicle and move into place with the help of a friend. I’m not expecting the contents to survive a fire, just a secure place to house guns, documents, cash, and other valuables.

    I got a gun cabinet for like $99 when I had my townhouse and bolted it to the studs in my closet. Kept them secure and it was easy to move upstairs.

    Yea someone could have broken into it with enough time but I wasn't real worried about that.

    I have a 2 gun nightstand safe (fingerprint or keypad) next to the bed that I got on Academy for like 120 bucks and a 7 gun closet safe that was slightly more expensive. I have seen a lot of videos on youtube of a ton of the quick access handgun safes being defeated by lock picking etc but unless a kid is super determined to become a master thief, I feel like they mostly serve their purpose just fine

    Stack-On 28 gun. Keypad went out in the first year, so can't recommend. Now I just use the key every time. Whatever you buy, buy more than you think you need. It won't hold near as much as you think when you have it organized like you like it. My 28 has like, 10 long guns, 4 pistols, and a decent amount of ammo cans in it. Two shelves have some family heirloom jewelry and important documents.

    Agreed about buying bigger than you think you need. The safe I linked earlier on the page is listed as a “12 gun” but was at capacity with a 22LR, AR, shotgun, and three pistols hanging from the shelf. Cramming ammo and other boxes in there was a challenge.

    Why do you put your ammo in your safe?

    I have some of my ammo in the safe, it certainly doesn't have room for all of it. But my wife doesn't want ammo cans stashed all over the house.

    Finally got around to drilling out my safe. Nice to see all the stuff I forgot I had. Really missed the 357 Mag.

    I have a Browning safe that had an electrical locking system. The lock went out and I wasn’t able to open in for about 5 years. The only gun I didn’t have in there was my Sig 9mm carry pistol. Had called two previous locksmiths and neither were able to get it open. Called a guy who came out Tuesday and got it open in less than 30 min. Had my Remington 12g, Benelli 20g, a few 45s, a few 9mms, my .22 pistol, and my AR that I purchased in 2014 and haven’t put a round through yet due to it being locked. I also have a S&W .357 magnum in there that I missed shooting.

    Never again will I ever go digital in regards to a lock. Old school dial from here on out. Learned my lesson.

    I mean, I didn't really need anything in there. I've switched over to bow hunting, my duck hunting buddy moved away, and already had my carry pistol.

    did it not have a key hole behind the digital keypad? My keypad went out and I just use the key on it.
