Well I moved out recently and want to bring my gun with me for protection. The main besides just good ole protection is between my two roommates and I, we have 3 plasmas, 3 laptops, 2 high dollar gaming computers, 3 Xboxes, 2 ps3s, a ps2, nintendo 64, and a couple hundred in workout supolements. I'm worried that someone is going to walk by and see this stuff when one of us leaving/coming in and the door be open. I'm in the market for a good single gun safe or one slightly larger because my roommate has a handgun as well. Mine is a glock 30 and his is a Taurus pt809 for size reference. We would also like to lock these up because we enjoy having people over for drinks pretty often and don't want someone finding it and an accident happen in their drunken state. We have already agreed that no one besides us three will know about the guns being in the apartment, the whereabouts, and combination/key to the safe. I'd prefer something that can be hidden under the bed and or in the closet so something on the smaller side would be best.
Sentry Fire Safe work Well and they are only $20 if not cheaper some places. Just make sure that the gun case fits. My Beretta cases fit like it was meant for it where as my sig case doesn't. I just transformed the Fire Safe to be the case for the Gun.
The other advantage to a fire safe is they are very heavy (so a thief will think twice before trying to pick it up) and it is innocuous looking (not screaming: take me take me; I have something valuable inside me). Usually thieves want to snatch and grab the most obvious things in plain sight (like your PS3, XBOX, laptops) and get out quickly. Also, having it locked away will keep it out of the hands of people who don't need to be handling it, especially after a few drinks. It will also have a better chance of escaping a fire (remember they are not fireproof, just fire resistant).
