For many North Carolinians, the holiday season means getting together with friends, attending holiday performances, going to parties and traveling to meet relatives. Unfortunately, the holiday season can also mean an increase in theft and home burglaries. If you’ve been watching the local news, you’ve probably noticed stories about protecting your packages from holiday “porch pirates.”
When it comes to protecting your firearms, being proactive can really pay off. To give you piece of mind while you’re away from home, remember to store all of your firearms and ammunition in a locked safe that is designed specifically for firearms. The safe should be securely attached to the floor or a wall in order to prevent thieves from stealing the safe itself. Don’t forget to check that your safe is indeed locked. It wouldn’t be the first time a burglar has stolen firearms from an unlocked safe.
If you do not currently have a firearm safe but are in the market for one, be sure to look for these key features:
- 30-minute fireproof rating at 1,400 degrees
- Combination lock for access without a key
- Soft lining to protect the finish of firearms
- Anchoring system to secure the safe to a wall or floor
