Used Gun Safes
When you own one or more guns, one of the most important things that you can have is a safe and secure place to put them.
If money is tight, one of the things that you can do is look at used gun safes. As long as a safe’s security features have not been compromised in any way, then buying a used one is perfectly fine, and it can save you some money.
There are several places where you can look for good used safes, so you should eventually be able to find what you’re looking for.
One of the first things that you want to do if you want to look at used gun safes is call around to places near you that sell different types of safes. Ask each one if they sell used safes and what kind of discounts they offer on them.
If you find a couple of these establishments that sell them used and offer discounts, they’re probably worth a visit. You want to make sure, however, that you carefully inspect any safes that you’re interested in.
First of all, look to see if a safe that you’re looking at has any dents, and if the seal on the door is broken or cracked in any spots. Take your time…these things are important. If there is damage, it means that the safe could have been broken into at some time, and you don’t want one that’s been compromised in this way.
Even though you want to save money by considering used gun safes, you still want the one you end up buying to have the features that you want. Would you prefer one that has a key lock, a combination lock, or a biometric gun safe?
If you prefer a combination lock, which kind? There are the standard kind of combination locks and the digital kind. Do you want the safe to be carpeted inside to protect your guns? Do you want shelves in the safe as so you can store other valuables in addition to your guns? Make a list before you shop.
One place where you can look for used gun safes is online. You can start by using a search engine and then checking out the results. Another place that you can look is gunvault.com. When you search that site for “gun safes”, it will offer results that include new safes, but it will also list any used ones for sale through the site as well, if there are any available.
The popular site Ebay.com is also a good place to look, but you want to be sure to check the feedback rating of any seller you might be considering buying from.
Prices for used gun safes will vary greatly, according to what you want. A small used lock box for a pistol with a digital combination lock could run you about $25 to $75. If you’re looking for a large gun safe that can hold several rifles, you could pay anywhere from $500 to $2000 for a good used one.
