There are many reasons to be aware of the requirements for good gun storage; ignorance does not stop you from being fined up to $12 000, personal and family safety and in the case of a break in; to keep it out of the hands of criminals. Most of the guns on the black market today in Australia have been obtained from breakins, Australian Federal Police states that 90% of guns stolen from the home are used in criminal activity. Of late there has been a spike in South East Queensland of break ins and in some areas this increase ranges from a 30-50% increase.
We have had experience with people under securing their weapons due to a slight misunderstanding of what is required for different grade weapons, the Firearms Storage Brochure fixed below goes through the compliances required. We have had people come in and purchase Gun Safes only after their weapons were confiscated due to poor storage, this is not the way we want to sell a safe.
There are three brands of gun safes that we feel confident recommending, the Guardall Gun Safes range, Burg Watcher burg_ranger_gun_safes_web and Lokaway gun safes. The first video below gives you a close up look at the Lokaway range of rifle and hand gun safes. They have a lock and swing technology in their safes that even if your house does experience a break in, the chance of them getting to your guns are very slim. They have a felt lining through the safe and a separate ammunition storage inside (legislation compliant).
When these safes are fixed to the wall or secured to the floor this offers the optimal security for your weapons. Some insurance companies will not payout for a gun safe that has been physically removed from your home. Gun safes Toowoomba is what we are building a name for as we offer a diverse range of quality safes for your peace of mind.
