I don't care what is said, I'm not marrying a guy. My lady and I do have his' and her's safes. And separate ammo piles.

 

I need a few locks to at least provide proof of forced entry (as if locking the front door should not be enough) but have been working on an ammo storage project (old entertainment center):

On edit: Turns out ammo is not covered for theft on my homeowners policy, proof of forcible entry is only for the purpose of a police report. And children, 'cuz children.

Yours is prettier, but in this age of electronic record keeping a used, locking, fire resistant filing cabinet can be had cheap and is absolutely great for ammo storage.  They are not as difficult as a safe to break into, but will stop the quick burglars

I like pretty. Still have not figured out how to squeeze in reloading when i get to that point, but do have a nice gun area. I'll post some pics in a new thread when I get it cleaned up.

At one point I was set up to reload on a folding Black and Decker Workmate.  It did the job and I could detach and store the reloading press and fold up the bench.  Fortunately I now have plenty of space though I don't shoot as much so load less frequently.

Good lookin' and lookin' good!

I think I'm seeing 3/4" shelf thickness ... well planned.

A dear friend's ammo shelves weren't that thick; they bowed to a shocking degree.

Doesn't look like yours will have that problem!

Yup, 3/4 pine glue-up shelves. Was going to edge-glue some other boards as I had half of what was needed. These pre-made were cheaper than the other half would cost. And I did not have to route a glue edge. Then a 1X2 screwed under the back edge of each. Same 1X2 screwed to cabinet sides as supports.

 

The entire cabinet is also secured to the wall with angle braces. Earthquakes are rare here but can exceed 6 on the Richter scale. I do not want this cabinet to move or get knocked over, it will be heavy.
