Who Needs a Gun Cabinet?

Whether you shoot clay pigeons at the weekend or use your gun to control vermin, you need to keep your guns safe. Anyone with a gun license in the United Kingdom needs to secure their guns in a lockable cabinet or safe.

The safe must be checked and approved by the local police. It needs to be securely fixed to a wall or floor in a room used specifically for storing guns. You also need to make sure children or intruders do not have access to the safe. And it should be hidden from people from the outside.

What Kind of Safe or Cabinet Do I Need?

The cabinet or safe must be made of solid material. This is usually steel as it is durable, long-lasting, and fire-resistant. You can also find aluminium or composite material safes, but they are not as durable. Your safe must be securely fixed to a wall or floor.

The cabinet or safe must be able to withstand attack from tools such as drills and bolt cutters. It must be locked with either a key or combination lock, with the keys must be held in a separate location. It is best to check with a professional before buying any safe to ensure it meets your needs.

What Type of Guns Can I Store?

You can store any type of firearm, including handguns, shotguns, or rifles in your firearm safe. But your firearm safe needs to meet all legal requirements for firearm storage in your area.

It is also important to ensure that the safe is of adequate size to fit the guns you wish to store. Our free-standing cabinet ensures that you do not need to break down your gun. It is also a good idea to use gun racks or dividers to keep the guns separated and prevent any damage.
