Deciding On A Gun Safe… Oh Boy

Every hunter who wants to keep his firearms protected goes through this dilemma. It is easily the hardest dilemma to deal with, deciding on what gun safe you want to sink your hard earned money into.

There’s way too many bells and whistles to take in on these things, even worse there’s more than a handful of highly reputable brands that are looking to dip their hands in your pockets.

So, just like everyone else, I do my research online. Although some of the advice may be biased, I can form my opinion off a lot of different opinions. This allows me to make a really informed decision, get the best bang for my buck and in turn be happy with my purchase. Simple math. Well, maybe not math, but you get it.

How Many Guns Do I Have, Anyway?

Ha, a lot of guys will say “only a handful.” And then, they open their gun safe to show you their favorite rifle, and 12 rifles, 10 shotguns and Grandpa’s WW1 pistol falls out. Funny how that works.
40 minutes later after hearing 5 stories on each gun, you grab for the bottle of whiskey and take a swig.

Before you even go about finding a good gun safe, know how many guns you have. How long your longest gun is, and how much space they take up when stacked together. This is crucial.

Having this stuff mapped out is basically like having the blue prints when building a house.

Read, Read Again & Then Read Some More

A lot of guys get excited when they find a promising gun safe for cheap and pull the trigger on the buy. Only to be disappointed because it isn’t what they were expecting. This is a bad scenario to be in. Especially if you were waiting on that safe for a while to arrive.

When you’re doing your research, I would definitely recommend you make sure you know what you are buying. Read reviews, customer reviews and then watch some videos on the subject. It’ll save you more than one head ache. Make your research a week long process. Get a different idea in your head every day and eventually you’ll be able to make a solid decision.

Ask Your Buddies, They’ll Know

You have friends, right? Well, talk to them. Ask them what they like and don’t about their gun safe. It can be a real eye opener when your friend Johnny tells you the double shelves in the Winchester Ranger Deluxe isn’t as spacious as they make it out to be in the reviews. Or when Alex tells you that he wished he went for a black safe instead of grey. The grey one sticks out like a sore thumb in his wife’s pink closet.

Get them over for a beer and talk about the gun safe you’re look at. They’ll give you some sound advice and their opinion. Or they might make fun of your for trying to spend $100 on a gun safe to protect your $5000 worth of guns.

Just Do It, Not That Hard

It’s not a difficult process and it doesn’t have to be. Just do it. Take action and get it done. Thank me later.

Some Really Good Moose Videos

I’ve spent the morning watching moose hunting videos and just figured I’d show y’all my favorite videos as of right now.

Some really nice horns on some of these beasts! Definitely gets the blood pumping, that’s for sure.

This video is a dream hunt of mine. Alaska for moose, what a thrill that would be!

Another great Alaskan hunt. I swear if you’re born in Alaska you need nothing more than a rifle and a handful of bullets to love life!

And coming in the 3rd spot, you guessed it. Another Alaskan hunt!

Back in late 2015 is when these guys made this video. Thoroughly enjoyed it, check it out!

Anyway, that’s all for today. If you want to see any more videos let me know, and I will try my best to find better ones. Thanks!

How I Got Into Hunting

I have been hunting for a really long time. Probably over 20 years at this point. Although, when I first started I wasn’t hunting like I do with shotguns and rifles now. I was chasing around prairie chickens with my slingshot. I was a pretty good shot!

Now, I let my trust rifles and shotguns do all the work for me. I would say I am a pretty good shot. Haven’t gone without a nice Whitetail buck in about 5 years now. My freezer is always full, that’s for sure!

I am also into Moose hunting. Although I am not as successful with that. Sometime in Winter 2016/2017 I plan on going to Alaska and nailing one there. Can’t wait for that.

I also am into bear hunting, but more for archery. This is something I am not as good as with, but I still enjoy it. Something about the adrenaline when you’re facing a bear with a arrow. Kind of crazy.

Anyway, just a quick story. Enjoy my wordpress site!
