With the rising costs of ammunition,,, it doesn't take long to stockpile a couple grand worth of ammo. That alone,,, is something else theives would be interested in,,, that may not be able to be reimbursed... and is untraceable. Not to mention if the fire department IS needed,,, they will walk away at the first signs of snap, crackle, and pop... and let the dwelling burn.
No, I tried to add it cause of the ammo bunker I have with all the rounds...they said "NO".

How are you so sure of that?

Maybe a minimally trained all-volunteer dept. would. Small arms ammunition 'cooking off' in a residential structure fire is of minimal concern to paid professional firefighters.

My residential quality safe does three things:

1. It will keep the local crackhead from getting my guns. It will not protect them from a determined pro.

2. It provides at least some fire protection for important documents.

3. It provides quick and easy access to my guns when I want to use them. I have a big safe and I can simply reach in and grab any handgun without moving any other guns around to get to them. I can get to about half of my long guns without digging around.

I have no illusions that my safe is the be all/end all for security and protection. However, it's much better than a gun cabinet, gun rack or closet.
