Default Gun Safe Solutions

Gun Safe Solutions
One of the most vexing problem for gun owners who want to be able to secure their long guns in a safe is how to secure the safe from theft and the guns from misuse.
The problem is compounded by the weight and size of most long gun safes, making their installation in upper floor rooms and confined spaces difficult or impossible.
These safes are as good as it gets but a reasonable level of protection can be found with a modular safe.
Modular Safes can be assembled 'in place' and cannot be disassembled without opening the door first.
Some of the advantages are obvious:
(1) easy to locate the safe above the ground floor
(2) easy to locate inside a confined space (i.e. in a closet)
(3) virtually impossible to remove it from a confined space once it is assembled if it then is too large to fit through the opening.
(4) 2 or more can be set in a confined space (i.e. a closet) and bolted together to form one giant safe, too big to remove.
-
I have only been able to identify two manufacturers of actual modular safes at this time but there may be more.

Larry-

I rally appreciate these. My problem is that the site where they are located (4share) requires that you download an executable file/program iin order to download the docs. These programs can can contain or enable malware to get on your computer so I am very reluctant to download their program. Are the files available elsewhere or as pdf or otherwise direct? Thanks!

Bill

Default While cleaning Hard drive I found...

.... a file listing the known bad lots of Korean PS .30-06 M2 ammo, and I thought this would be a relatively good place to post it.

Here is a list of known lots of PS marked head stamps and if people have given reports about them. YMMV and just because a lot is not on here does not mean its safer or any less safe. Use best judgement and if you have any lots listed or not listed please let us know how it has worked out for you so that we can have as complete of a list as possible.

PS 2-027 (one positive report based on unknown number of rounds fired)
PS 2-033 (Bad - one report - unspecified problem)
PS 2-035
PS 2-074 (256 fired from M1 Garand w/o issue *M1 Tanker*)
PS 2-083 (one positive report based on less than 200 rounds fired)
PS 2-088
PS 2-090
PS 2-093

PS 2-155 (Bad - one report of splits 2 out of 250 rds)(BAD - one report of splits 3 out of 352 rds)
PS 2-156 (BAD - multiple reports of serious splits)

PS 2-158 (VERY BAD - DANGER - Nasty split cases...all the way to the head of the case)
PS 2-159 (one positive report based on 400 rounds fired)
