..tossing gun stuff..
« on: October 20, 2018, 10:03:42 AM »

FINALLY got the gun safe combo mechanism replaced (with a manual, rotary dial vs the electronic key pad) so I've started unboxing all my guns and stuff that I kept in the safe before it "broke"

going thru gun stuff I found a dozen+ govt mandated locks that I'm separating from the gun storage and will use for other purposes - also about 1/2 my pistol's hard case gun boxes (and a cheapazz cardboard one from Ruger, LCR) that I've absolutely no use for.....then too 6 hard cases in which came with the RDS that I've purchased - adios to all

(don't care if some folks feel having "the boxes" makes a gun purchase a "must", or not - I don't want 'em and I'm the one who counts.....)

now checking each pistol for any degradation due to the storage

EXACTLY why I looked long and hard to FIND a gun safe that had a DIAL lock on it. 

Glad ya got it fixed up.
I agree on the box issue.
They are your boxes so it is up to you.

Yes, I do not like electronic locks on a safe either.

just me- i don't want a large safe in this area.
one of my relatives daddy-in-law had a big nice
safe and was burglarized. they saw the big nice
safe and left and came back a couple of weeks
later with some big nice shotguns and he was
awakened at 3 some-odd AM with those shotguns
in his and his wife's faces and force to open up
that safe, and got a thorough shotgun butt working
over
