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.

    • Thanks. Refresher: Requiring Firearm Safety Training: S-2169/A-5030 (Weinberg/Reynolds-Jackson) would modernize firearm ID cards, as well as require completion of a firearm safety course in order to receive a permit to purchase a gun or receive a firearm ID card. Connecticut, California, Hawaii, Illinois, Rhode Island, Maryland and the District of Columbia all have laws requiring individuals to undergo safety training prior to being able to purchase. [How would this apply to existing FID holders? Definition of acceptable training? Conspicuously absent. Potential impacts on passing on firearms to your heirs.] Mandating Safe Storage of Firearms: Owning a firearm for protection in the home can present a substantial obstacle to safe firearm storage, with individuals often opting to keep weapons loaded and easily accessible. Last legislative session, the Assembly passed A-3696/S-2240 (Downey/Gopal) requiring firearm owners to store the firearm in a securely locked box or container; in a location where a reasonable person would believe to be secure; or to secure the firearm with a trigger lock.  Raising Minimum Age to Purchase Long Guns to 21: Under current law, a person 18 years of age and older may obtain a firearms purchaser identification card and a handgun purchaser is required to be at least 21 years old. The bill (A-1141/S-3605, Freiman/Cryan) increases from 18 to 21 the age at which a person is eligible to receive a firearms purchaser identification card used to purchase shotguns and rifles but would still allow for those at least 18 to possess a long gun for purposes of hunting; military drills; competition; target practice; training; or under the supervision of a parent or guardian.   Promoting Microstamping Technology: Microstamping technology provides law enforcement with the tools to quickly link firearm cartridge casings found at the scene of a crime to a specific firearm, without having to recover the firearm itself.  The technology essentially creates a “license plate” on cartridge casings to identify the gun that was used to shoot the ammunition.  Last legislative session, S-112/A-1098 (Weinberg/Downey) would require within a year that firearm manufacturers incorporate this technology into new handguns sold in New Jersey. [This worked so well in CA... IOW, no more new pistols for sale.] Establishing Electronic Ammunition Sales Recordkeeping: The State Commission of Investigation (SCI) issued a report in 2016 finding that straw purchases of ammunition were unchecked because firearm IDs lacked photo identification.  The SCI also found that sales records were often hand-written into log books — a problem for law enforcement, which should be able to consult an electronic database when it investigates questionable ammunition purchases.  A-1292/S-1481 (Greenwald/Weinberg) would require manufacturers or dealers of handgun ammunition to keep a detailed electronic record of ammunition sales, and report ammunition sales to the State Police. [Any talk of banning internet sales?] Banning .50 Caliber Firearms: Military-style .50 caliber rifles are banned or restricted in several other states. California has a complete ban on .50-caliber rifles, Connecticut bans specific models and Maryland has some restrictions.  S-103/A-1280 (Gill/Greenwald) would revise the definition of "destructive device" under New Jersey law so that it includes weapons of .50 caliber or greater. [It's about time. These things are used in what... zero crimes in this state annually?] I wouldn't be surprised if remaining evil features, others, and internet sales, among other things, get added to the list.
    • I dropped my Trenton Times subscription after the January 7th headline. Bought a paper last week on Thanksgiving for my wife... $8 and completely useless! Won't be doing that again.
    • The Gov referenced these initiatives back in April:  https://nj.gov/governor/news/news/562021/20210415b.shtml        
    • Holy crap! $60??!!!!!!!  I didn’t know they were that expensive.    I have an extended A2 type comp (not EGW) in my parts box, makes a 14.5” carbine 16.25”.  If you need it, it’s yours for the cost of postage. It looks like the one on the left in this pic.
