    Imagine having so little ammo you can still practically lock it up.

    I store ammo in surplus ammo cans under my reloading bench.

    Why the hell would you lock up ammo? Just put it in ammo cans and stack it up on the floor or some heavy duty shelves.

    Of the 29,490 rounds I have (yes that is an accurate number according to my spreadsheet inventory) I keep about 2/3s in a closet and the remaining 1/3 shelved in my reloading room. My method isn’t for everyone, but it works for me.

    I have a huge shelving unit that holds my full cases and ammo cans. Works great so far. I have a cabinet that holds odds and end calibers for my surplus stuff I don’t stack deep

    My front door has a lock. That is good enough for my ammo.

    Home Depot has those orange ridgid boxes for like half the price of the one you posted.

    Edit: I guess they’re black now.

    My method: cans piled in the closet.

    Pros: it’s climate-controlled.

    Cons: I have no closet, my wife hates it, I can’t find anything without moving forty-seven cans, like an idiot I filled one of those tall mortar cans with revolver ammo and now I cannot lift it, I have nowhere to put my shoes.

    10/10 recommend

    Thing is when you say safe that can mean anything from $400 new to tens of thousands of dollars new.

    From my perspective and since I don’t purchase the cheapest thing with the word safe on it safes are to valuable of a resource with limited space for me to attempt storing my ammo in it as well. I know ammo prices have recently done nothing but get more expensive but from my perspective I only store my guns and other high dollar valuables in my safe. When it comes to my ammo I store that in a separate wall locker that I keep locked. It stays organized and it stays locked up this way.

    The wall lockers I use have shelves which are much sturdier than the quality of safes at the same price point.
