Collection in safe?
There recently was a home invasion north of where I live recently. According to the authorities the scumbag thieves broke into another persons home and seized some firearms as well as a set of ATV keys. Some time later the same scumbags came back to the house to commandeer the mentioned ATV, using the victims firearms against him. According to authorities he returned fire with a shotgun and hit all four of them. A big Ooh-rah for the castle doctrine here in Florida. At the time of this thread he is currently not facing any charges.
I have recently been looking into a secure safe to store my arsenal in. But my issue with that is the crooks are a combination lock away from causing danger to my wife and I.
Curious to what others concerns are towards the argument. And anyone heard of a similar story to the one mentioned feel free to chime in.
Not sure what you mean here so I'll answer it both ways.

Unless you're going with fake panel walls that are well hidden to the point of being totally unnoticeable or require some sort of action to open, hiding stuff is a waste of time.
Guns are locked up and you'd have to open the safe to defend yourself if criminals came into your home:
Keep a defensive firearm at arms length, get a concealed carry permit if your state allows it (shouldn't be needed in your own home, but check local regs). Being unarmed in your home because we "think" we're safe is exactly what these home invasion jokers are counting on.
zhurdan, good input. Currently I am always an arms length away from defending my family. I'm thinking about a high-end bolt-down safe upstairs for the ones not needed for home protection. I saw some great companies safes at this years shot show. I'm constantly thinking defensly and want to be prepared for the storm.
