    I was just trying to say that you don't need to sell away half your collection when your original plan with the improved hinges and lock would be enough.

    You don't even have a cordless drill? Now that's just not right.

    Yes, thanks. I think the combo lock and special hinge is just as goo as a safe. And, I have a lot of room for my ammo, and I need not fret as much over moisture issues. So, I am satisfied (once I get it all together)

    Just install a couple of "dead pins" I remove a hinge screw from the door side, in the middle of the hinge-now install a three inch long wood screw about a #12-14, up to the beginning of the smooth part where the threads end. Take a hacksaw or bolt cutter&remove the very head of the screw, leaving a 1/2" stub sticking ouyt from the side of the hinge. Now either remove the hinge screw opposite the stub& or drill a hole for the stub to enter when the door is closed. I know it sounds complicated, but this is basicall what you find on all safe doors (Hinge Side) I am a Locksmith/Gun Dealer and I do these all the time.

    Now there ya go, since Ship doesn't want a safe ... that sounds like one of the better answers to the original question because it's inexpensive, fast, affective & pretty d@*n smart. That's a good idea and I'm gonna do that to my Workshop / Dog house door tomorrow ...
    Thanks for posting that, Bill

    I mentioned it on another thread - I thought I had ended it up here. I have my problem solved too with non removable pins... )
