Well fella's, i hit a serious dilema today. I have had my 6.8 spc in pieces for a while so it has not been in my safe. I bought a six5 barrel from ar-15performance the other week. Its a 6.5 wilcat using 6.8 spc brass. So i replaced my 6.8 barrel with the six5. Went to put it in my safe and it is completely full. There is no possible way to squeeze another gun in there. I got the six5 in, but thats it. Even my pistol rack on the door is full up. Apparently i bought a few guns since i took it apart.

So i guess my gun buying days are past. Its been a good run. Bought my first gun at 9 years old. Mowed lawns all summer to get that rifle. Ruger 10-22, and for 29 years since i've been buying and buying. Now i guess i can spend thousands of dollars per year on something else. My wife is going to be so excited.

I told my wife and she laughed and said you obviously haven't asked for my help yet. I can always fit one more thing.

WHEW! I was afraid you got caught beating your wife.

There are several solutions to your current problem That will allow you to continue to purchase firearms. Here are just a few, but common ideas.
1, First, your safe is full, not your house. Before safes became popular, people actually just kept the arms in their house. Now they could be stored in various manners around the house such as unloaded in the corner of a closet, or hidden in some out of the way part of the house. Disassembled and spread throughout the house so that if a thief broke in he may not be able to leave with a complete gun. Just stack them up anywhere in the house because you rarely leave, you have a fenced yard full of Pitbulls, and everyone knows Mr. Jones is crazy and will shoot anyone that comes in his yard and always has a loaded gun within arms reach. I mean really, before we got all scared about keeping guns in our homes because we were afraid some burglar would break in and steal them because the courts wouldn't keep the goblins locked up, we just kept them in our homes where ever we wanted. Now we feel like we can't own a gun unless it's locked in a box. Now the thieves just come prepared to take a big metal box and open it later.
2. You could take inventory of what you have, and determine if there are a few that could be sold because you don't use them, or want them anymore. You may find that selling guns can be fun, and you can always use the new found money to buy more guns.
3.You can buy another safe; but don't buy one to handle the over flow. Buy one to hold your current collection and then some, and keep the old safe for the overflow. If you have to have a safe, then make sure it is top notch in security and fire protection, and make sure it is solidly secured to the home.
4. Build a safe room in or onto your house. Something solid that will survive criminal assault, storms, and other disasters, and be sure to get a proper door for it. This way you can always tell the wife that you're building it for the families safety when she sees the bill.
There are more solutions than these, and not all are suitable to everyone. I mean it's just hard to see someone else fondle one of your gun children, especially knowing you may never see them again.
It might be hard scarring the bejezzus out of the neighbors if they're not afraid of you now. A new safe or vault may be the best option. While expensive now, just think of the fun you'll have filling it.

Wait, wait, wait: it's a trap! Do not let her rearrange your safe, else it'll go similar to your rearranging her shoes - why does a woman need 5 pair of black shoes?

My marriage works because she leaves my gun safes alone, I leave her jewelry alone. And her best jewelry is in a safe - that she can't open. Job security!

Problem with another safe is I don't have room for another safe in my house.  So I actually might have to stop for a while. 

Most of the guns I have sold, I regret selling.  So I doubt I will part with any of them.

We plan on building a new house sometime in the next few years.  Might just have to hold tight til then. 

Sometimes I think it would be nice to start from scratch again and just have a few guns.  But then I try to decide which ones I would want and I end up pretty close to where I am at now.  Bucky

Then just sell your current safe, but a bigger one for now, and when you build your new house, build it with a steel reinforced concrete vault with a quality vault door in it. You can either sell the new safe, or use it for a bedroom safe.

I have plenty of room for another safe. In fact my wife wants me to add on to the house. Her idea is to build a concrete reinforced room with a vault style door. Plus put in an elevator for her to go up to her sewing room. So Send me you not as often used firearms to be stored. Off site storage will insure the safety from western states commies.

Lile, where you live, you need a reinforced concrete room just for the weather.

 It would help when she finds another firearm she didn't know about . I can say that one is another of Jason's. We need to work together.

I have a savage short action sitting on my workbench.  I have been sitting here plotting building another rifle.  Getting a Critierion prefit and another manners carbon fiber stock.  Then I remembered I cannot fit any more guns in my safe.  Damnit. Really Sad

It was even for a good cause.  My 4 year old boy needs a hunting rifle and then I could use it for the next 8 to 10 years before it is his.

You know they make furniture with lockable hidden compartments for concealing firearms.

My dad has a safe just for his Henry's and the old Remington Brandon reconditioned for him.  Maybe I could con him into storing a few for me.  Big Grin

For long term storage use 5 foot piece of 6" PVC. glue on the ends.  Dig a post hole in the back yard and bury it. Upright it produces a small signature on a ground scanner. Keep the consumables secure with it. They make a good Time Capsule.

I refuse to buy anything that isn't a revolver or lefthanded and has a tang safety. I still need to buy another safe because it all won't fit. My mistake was making exceptions for ARs and Beretta autoloading shotguns. Now I'm considering a further exception just because I really like the Benelli Vinci. (Yeah, I'm not so good at sticking to my guns on that refusal.) I should forego all autoloaders except the Mossberg, but then I'd be stuck shooting Mossbergs. Heck with that.

I have always envied the one rifle, one shotgun, and one pistol fellas. I would sell out and try to be one, but I have too many guns I could never let go.
