Why Do I Need a Gun Safe?
All our gun cabinets and ammunition gun safes conform to British Standard. A gun cabinet is a secure and protective lockable safe for shotguns, rifles, pistols or ammunition for those guns and are a legal requirement. Gun safes are used to prevent access to unauthorised or unqualified persons and burglary protection. Access prevention is required by law and the British Home Office state that new gun cabinets and gun safes should conform to the British standard. Secure gun locks are law and the gun safe must be fixed to a secure structure. If you are unsure about where to fit a cabinet or safe please contact your local police firearms department.

Best Practice and Installation
Your gun cabinet should be secured firmly so that it cannot be removed by bolting to it to a wall, floor or joist. It is best secured in a corner to make it more difficult for a thief to attack it. If you are unsure about where is best to secure your cabinet in your home it is best to contact your local firearms officer. The firearms officer will pay you a visit to ensure everything is correct before your certificate can be approved.
You should ensure that the keys to your cabinet are kept in a secure location that ONLY you know about. Giving other people access to your cabinet, even if they are family, is not taking reasonable precautions and is a breach of firearms regulations. it is a good idea to change the location of your keys from time to time.
When you return from shooting it is best to clean your guns immediately and return them to storage as soon as possible. Leaving guns 'out to dry' means they are left unsecured. Modern lubricants and cleaners mean that you no longer need to do this. It is also good practice to check your car, pockets, slips or cartridge bags for any leftover cartridges. These should be stored in their seperate safe as soon as possible.
