Pile Of Gun Safes At BJs

Recommended Posts

My wife and I stopped into the BJs in Ledgewood this afternoon. While wandering around I spotted an end cap with about nine to twelve gun safes of varying sizes. They were all pushed together so I couldn't accurately count them. But it was way more than I've ever seen there before. Three being about the usual number.

So I guess all those new gun owners need somewhere to lock up their new guns.

They might be tossing the guns under the bed, and locking up all the $1 a round plinking ammo they've been buying.  Bigger investment to protect.

At first I was gonna argue with you on that, but at current prices, yea my ammo stash value probably outpaces my guns by 4:1 or more.

 

eta: ok maybe not quite that much... forgot how many guns I had for a minute. :D

Do people really lock up ammo in safes?

Hell no!  Extra ammo goes in the safe deposit boxes at the bank! At this point, my ammo is worth almost as much as my house!:lol:

Seriously though, I have 3 safes and there is no room in them for ammo!  If you have room for ammo in your gun safe, you need more guns!

Well I do. Not because I think it needs to be in a safe. But on the floor I had some room, so I put the most expensive/critical ammo in there. HST, Gold Dot, Underwood etc. 

It also helps hold the safe down.

(Just kidding. It's already bolted to the concrete.)

That's exactly why I asked. The safes should be filled with hardware, not "food" for it.

Ammo is very expensive now...

Good thing I was a good Boy Scout and stocked up when it was cheap. Apparently, some didn't learn after the Sandy Hook shooting.

Just a reminder for anyone considering the purchase of a gun safe. Unless Murphy has changed it, there is no sales tax on a gun safe.

Adios,

Yeah, I'm a big fan of squirreling it away as well. Fortunately, my neurosis has paid off.
