Gun Safe Organization

When we bought the townhome we currently live in, it came with a huge Liberty Gun Safe (Franklin model). Funny thing is, we looked at this place at least four times during the purchase process and I never noticed the safe tucked away in a closet, hidden by the door when opened to go into the closet. I was totally surprised when the seller told me the day before closing that she did not think she could get the safe out before closing. I met her and looked at it and told her I wanted it (trying to hold back my enthusiasm). I asked her what she wanted for it and she asked if I'd pay her $500 for it of course I said YES !

I've always wanted to have one, but never had the room in other homes we've owned. Now that I have one, I'm finding it to be cluttered and disorganized. My wife has also taken over one shelf for her jewelry but given the alternative in the event of a burglary, I'm ok with that.

I thought I'd post this thread to see if any of you Kimberholics have some pics that would give me some ideas and inspiration on how to get things organized in a more efficient manner.

Congrats on the safe and that's a great price for one,but you can Google "Inside a gun safe" and get plenty of pics to get an idea how to organize your safe...

Long story short, you're not seeing the inside of my safe ......

Thanks this link will help, and I can certainly understand anyone not wanting to open their safe up for the world to see

I am not much help. My safes have more long guns than they were intended to hold. Mags and ammo are elsewhere.

It is kind of a never ending process or at least something I have been having to do with a few purchases and since ammo and magazines are worth almost as much as gold it has become a regular process.
I don't want to buy another safe at this point in my life but I may have to.

There is always people moving and don't want the burden or wanting one large one instead of two. Check Backpage and Craigslist. I bought number two and three that way. Each around Christmas time though tax return time seems good too.

TGL. Are you nuts? Never let your wife have a shelf in the safe. Your stuff is on the way out and now she can buy more expensive jewelry. All kidding aside. I bought a liberty may be a franklin but it was about 2500.00 delivered. You stole that safe great price. I agree with others look at the video. Good luck

I know Nellybelle, but we've managed to get to a point where she does not give me any grief about all the guns and fishing rods I buy, and in turn, I say nothing about the purses and jewelry she buys

When we moved in to the townhome, that safe (to me) was like moving my shooting supplies from a college dorm room to a palatial home. I've just not been diligent about setting up any organization yet.

I've got another smaller safe that would be perfect for her jewelry but I need to figure out a way to anchor it down as it could be carried out. I've been contemplating filling it up with landscape bricks and putting a sign on the outside that says "Expensive Jewelry" and leaving it on the bottom floor in hopes that a burglar would spend all their time trying to carry it out and leave the rest of the place alone
