If you don't have kids, then you actually don't need an actual gun safe.  It depends on the area where you're renting and who the landlord is.  You may be able to secure a small safe/cabinet in a closet with bolts into the studs, but you'll have to likely repair it before leaving.

Food for thought from someone with similar living arrangements:

Change the lockset on one of your closets from an interior non-locking one to a keyed entry lock. Voila, your locking gun cabinet.

Self-install a SimpliSafe wireless alarm system in your apartment. Monitored by SimpliSafe who will communicate directly with your local police dispatch in the event of a break-in.  Your landlord (and G-d knows who else) already has a key to your new apartment.

The SimpiSafe system has a camera that will record (to the cloud) all entry activity. They also have a 'silent alarm' entry sensor that will be triggered when your gun closet is opened unless you specifically bypass it.

Very reasonably priced. The system communicates with them via wifi and has a cellular backup.

It's the best $36 a month I spend for peace of mind. And there are discount codes available in their ads on most conservative radio and tv stations. I can also do a referral to you. PM me if you want.

Make sure you have only compliant stuff if you bring em here.  It would suck if PD ends up responding to an alarm and finds a bunch of stuff.  Or your divorcee decides she wants to screw you over and makes a false claim of abuse and mentions firearms.  Even if you did nothing wrong, it could become problematic.

So.. 10 rd or fewer mags... no flash hiders....compensators pinned.... adjustable stocks pinned... etc etc..   I suspect you already know this stuff, but wanted to mention it.

Don’t forget to grind off those evil bayonet lugs. There is a HUGE problem with drive by bayonettings in this state.

Indeed.  Bayonet lugs can not be controlled.  Extremely dangerous to the general public.

Did it for many years. 

My main advice is rent in a big complex. The leases are drawn up by paranoid lawyers, and they know that in other places lease stipulations that forbid guns increases the responsibility of the landlord to provide for security. 

The lease didn't forbid guns, but it thought it was cute forbidding explosives. Ammo is an orm-d consumer product, not an explosive. Either they were not as clever as they thought, or it was deliberately misleading to make the client happy or to give them something to threaten problem tenants with. 

Additionally, they had a means to manage tenants refusing them entry without notice which they followed properly all but one time (they handed the keys to a town/state inspector and he through he would let himself in unannounced. I was home and he found himself going ass over teakettle down the steps when the door was made to remain close with authority). 

But I had an interior closet that I put a safe in and put a locking doorknob on. 

As others have stated, there are a lot more security options you can add on top of that.

    • i'll be out after work doing the block i live on.
    • I just got LifeLock this year after some funny business.  Worth every penny.
    • I'm seeing reports by people more familiar with the behind the scenes tech systems, and they're seeing more "outside probings" into critical systems. Concerns are, if things go hot in the Euro theater or Asia theater, it won't just be tanks and artillery doing the fighting. So, first, keep an eye on your bank balances, retirement account balances, credit cards, etc. for possible hacking, inaccess or questionable activity. I saw reports out West last night that some USAA credit and debit cards weren't working. Second, there has been two different reports on critical infrastructure (electric and water) that hackers are looking for an intrusion into a way to shut them down. The fact that these two warnings below have come out recently, means that TPTB think it's a good possibility. Getting power or water shut down to large areas won't be a pleasant thing. ...."WASHINGTON (AP) — Extremist groups in the United States appear to increasingly view attacking the power grid as a means of disrupting the country, according to a government report aimed at law enforcement agencies and utility operators." https://apnews.com/article/business-united-states-law-enforcement-agencies-9e3d1d4d4cd429b69a787235caa7e4b8 ......"Cyber defenses for US drinking water supplies are "absolutely inadequate" and vulnerable to large-scale disruption by hackers, a senior official said Thursday. "There's inadequate resilience to even a criminal sector," the official said. "The threshold of resilience is not what it needs to be." https://news.yahoo.com/us-says-national-water-supply-142023485.html
    • It's got to survive the fact CA has state preemption AND then pass constitutional challenges. Even the 9th would have a very hard time upholding the fee, but they are 97% scumbag by volume, so.... Likely it'll just be killed by state preemption.   
    • That list is incredibly misleading.  Like paypal on the list is truly leaning into bitcoin because they are willing to provide actual money to merchants in exchange for you giving them bitcoin. They are actually swapping one form of money for another.   Similar with newegg.  At&t on the other hand accepts traditional money and has just integrated a payment method that says they will allow bitpay to give them cash on your behalf. They don't want your bitcoin.  Microsoft is on the list, but removed bitcoin, readded, and appear to have removed it again, at least all their FAQs on how to do it no longer work for me to see the option.  Starbucks doesn't want your bitcoin, which is why you can't use it in person. They will accept dollars form a third party on your behalf after the transaction completes. They will then give you credit for that at a later date.  Overstock is hard to say what they are doing.  Amazon doesn't want your bitcoin, but will accept dollars on your behalf from a third party. Apply this scrutiny to the rest of the list, and it gets much, much shorter.
