I have had a few handguns stored in a sentry "fireproof, floodproof" (as an aside, I have no idea how this could be floodproof..marketing is marketing...) home safe along with important documents etc...I have recently been reading online that it is not a good idea to store firearms in these type of safes due to the humidity levels inside. Apparently there is some wet fabric packed between the outer and inner walls which is what aids in the fire rating.
I have had my guns in the safe for over a year and have not seen any rust forming, but now I'm spooked. Has anyone here heard the same thing? Any sub $100 safes out there to lock up 3-5 handguns? I don't have the desire or need to spend $3k on a big gun cabinet. Honestly, I'm not very concerned with the fire rating so it does not have to be fireproof. If my house burns down, I have bigger problems than replacing my guns & I store ammo seperately...
