‘This blog is a place where I share all my knowledge about gun safes through my reviews and posts which I have been collecting for years.
It is the best way to show people what they need and how to recognize it simple and quick.
Since I work in a store I am constantly around people who don’t know much about gun safes and I know what are their most common questions, what they want to know and what they need to know (but they don’t realize that).
Gun safes are a serious matter and they should be durable, high-quality and they should provide a safe place for you to store your firearms.
That is why it is important to learn things about them before you buy one.
All of the Gun Safes marketed by Craftys Rods and Guns comply with the necessary NZ Firearms Category Law that they say they are designed for, and are manufactured from high quality durable raw materials.
If you are a wanna be gun owner or are a gun owner then one thing you must have is the best gun safe for your firearms and the NZ Law requires this.
Doesn’t matter if you have guns and rifles for your hunting, hobby or collection purposes, the law in NZ requires you to have a complied gun safe for the category of licence that you hold.
A gun safe is not just an ordinary safe for your jewelry or important documents.
HOW TO BUY THE BEST GUN SAFE FOR YOU?
I am sure you are thinking, how can that be hard? Well, it can.
If you want to buy a good gun safe you have to think about the dimension, where you will put it, do you want a key or biometrical safe?
What about weight, capacity, mounting? How about water and fire resistant?
In these 3 lines, I have put the important things you can choose from.
Gun safes come with different locking systems so you have to decide between a mechanical lock, digital combination or biometric code.
A mechanical lock is a basic lock where you need a key or scroll a combination of numbers.
That is for people who don’t want to deal with electronics and batteries and it is also the lowest cost option.
More sophisticated locks are a digital combination and biometric ones, which are more expensive.
They can react faster than mechanical ones, but they require the power source and they cost more, especially the biometrical one.
Size And Capacity
To find the one gun safe for you among all gun safes you have to determine how many guns do you have. Gun safes can be for 1 to 50 guns.
Think about the number of guns you have and according to that number, decide on the size of the gun safe.
Please remember to think about whether you will add to your gun collection, then buy the size accordingly as to buy a larger safe first than adding another safe with another locking system later will be more expensive and an inconvenience.
A common statement put 1 gun in to a gun safe and they miraculously multiply. Classic I originally owned 1 gun, thought I would probably buy more, hence purchased a 7 gun safe, thought I was being safe with a 7 capacity.
To date I now own 3 and my lovely son has brought 4 I’m at capacity of storage.
Also to consider is the manufacturers, when they state capacity i.e. 5 gun safe this is a compact storage of 5 guns.
If you have beautiful wood stocked guns or expensive optics on your guns that you do not want damaged or to be knocked around then again buy bigger as a 5 gun safe will probably only carefully store protect 3 beautiful rifle packages.
The price of the gun safe depends on the size, capacity, locking system and additional features which means that you have to know the type of gun safe you need before you talk about the budget.
Warranty is a sign of quality and durability.
All the Gun Safes that Craftys Rods and Guns Sell come with a full manufacturers 12 month warranty.
I trust the above aids you in purchasing the right size and combination safe to meet your needs
