A gun cabinet is designed to store rifles in a safe and secure way. Gun cabinets are an important addition to any firearm collection and are an absolute safety must for any gun owner, especially if there are children in or around the home. While gun cabinets are primarily designed to keep guns locked away and keep people from getting into them, they have very little fire protection. All the same, so long as your primary aim is to keep guns safely out of the way, gun cabinets are an affordable attractive and lightweight solution for your needs. Since they are more lightweight than traditional gun safes, gun cabinets may be a good choice if your floor can’t bear the heavy load of a standard safe. One downside to a lighter safe is that you must remember to anchor the safe to the floor as gun cabinets are easier to carry off than traditional safes. Any of our wonderful customer service representatives would be more than happy to help you understand the difference between gun safes and gun cabinets and can recommend a particular model based on your specific needs.

Are you weary about purchasing a safe online without being able to see it in the flesh? Well…we can’t quite help you there but we can give you a closer look at guns safes with this video!

Not everyone has access to a safe and protected firing range to practice shooting. For those of us who are still interested in practicing with a gun at home, dry firing may be a workable solution. Dry-fire is a term used to describe practicing with an unloaded gun at home. It doesn’t necessarily mean that one has to pull the trigger but can involve all sorts of other practice drills including loading and reloading, drawing, or other shooting skills that you’d like to improve upon.
Dry-fire practice is a great way to become a skilled shooter without the high cost of shooting ranging including the cost of targets, ammo, and range time. When you do get to the range, you’ll be able to see your improved skills I action! Experts suggest that those who are seriously interested in becoming a skilled shooter practice dry-firing at least one time per eek and in a live-firing range at least once per month.
As with anything related to guns, it is always better to be safe than sorry (you know we’re fans of gun safety here!). You should NEVER point a gun at a person (even if it is unloaded and apparently safe) nor should you ever point a gun at anything you could possibly destroy including expensive electronics, pets, doorways. If you practice dry-firing in your home make sure you point the gun at a wall that a bullet cannot easily pass through.
If you have other questions about beginning a dry-fire routine, you can speak about the best practices with a professional at your live-firing range. A professional will also be able to help you determine what drills will best help you hone your skills and suggest any gear or classes that may help you on your way to being a serious shooter.
You’ve likely stumbled across our online store because you are looking to purchase a new gun safe or are doing research for a future purchase. We want you to be an informed consumer and have put together a small buying guide for the important things to consider when making a gun safe or gun cabinet purchase.
The size of your safe depends largely on what you plan to store in the safe. If you own a single handguns your needs are much different than if you own many rifles. For small gun owners you need only a small gun safe that can be hidden somewhere in your home—a rifle owner will require a large-format gun cabinet to secure all the guns.
Additionally, you can consider how many guns you’ll acquire over the next few years. If you are interested in getting involved in gun collecting or see yourself wanting to own several varieties of guns, you should consider your future safe needs in his current purchase. Make sure to give yourself some room for your collection to grow. It is more cost and space effective to own a single larger safe than several smaller safes.
You may also want to think about other valuables that you would consider keeping in your safe such as jewelry, cash, home deed, etc. As you are purchasing a safe, you may as well get one that can work for a variety of needs.
Burglar & Fire protection
Determine whether you need a gun safe that is both burglar and fire protected or not. For most people the primary aim of a gun safe is keeping unwanted people from being able to access your guns. Guns should be kept away from children but also from thieves who may want to steal your firearms and sell them in the black market. Pay attention to the burglary ratings for any safe you consider. Additionally, you may want to consider a fire-proof safe. The UL done extensive research on fire-protection and has created a series of fire-ratings for safes. Make sure you educate yourself on your fire-proof safe needs, taking into account how long you want your safe to be able to withstand fire and to what temperature your belongings are safe to.

Target shooting is a great hobby for gun enthusiasts who are interested in becoming sharp-shooters! There are several types of target shooting but it boils down to essentially to either static targets or moving targets. Basic or static target shooting is where you shot at a mounted target, typically a large sheet of paper hung in a gun range. Moving target shooting, or clay pigeon shooting, involves shooting at a clay disc that is flung in to the air. The aim is to hit the disc before it hits the ground. Have you tried target shooting lately? Are you a beginner who goes to the range only once in a while? Or a veritable professional who is out shooting clay pigeons every weekend? What sort of target shooting do you like best?
Any time of gun can be used at target shooting practice; and, for that matter, any type of target can also be used. Essentially, any gun shooting any target is considered target shooting! However, traditionally, target shooting includes pistols, air pistols, air rifles, small bore rifles, and full bore rifles. Before thinking about going target shooting you should make sure that you know the ins and outs of any gun you are planning on firing (whether with live ammo or not). If you aren’t 100% comfortable with your gun, please make sure you take lessons or at the very least a basic gun safety course before you go out for target shooting.
In addition to the gun and the target, you’ll need to remember to bring earplugs and safety goggles. Due to the high level of noise that a firing gun sets off, it is imperative to have earplugs. You may damage your ear drums if you don’t! Safety goggles protect your eyes from the potential of any potential fragments that might fly at your face after a bad shot. Always better to be safe than sorry!
