Thanks for sharing safe recommendations. I've always stashed around the house rather than having a one stop location for perps.
Been considering a safe for several years; still debating the merits of a centralized stash vs. hidden all over the house.

Any thoughts on this debate?

Safe! All the way.

I can't imagine having 10's of thousands invested and no safe.

What happens if a tornado comes through and destroys your house? You guns will be spread everywhere in the neighborhood. A bolted down safe in the basement will keep that from happening.

What if a fire breaks out? All your guns are destroyed. A safe in the basement will help prevent that.

What if you come home and a unarmed robber is in there? They finds one of your guns and now they are armed.

A safe is a very good deterrent for a smash and grab thief. Any professional thief can get into any safe.

Like Curmudgeon said, I can't imagine not having a safe when you have thousands invested.

Always bolt down your safe to keep it from leaving and most importantly keep it from tipping over when the heavy door is open. Put it in a corner of the room so its hard to pry it open.

If you have a separate one for ammo you can fit more firearms in the other safe. Lol
I have separate lockable steel cases (2) (old Steelcase file cabinets) for ammo, if I had to store my ammo in the safe, I'd be in real trouble, lol.

Safes and cabinets mounted to floor and wall, all cases/safe locked, security camera pointed at that end of room and this:
