    I will be in the process of moving from one place to another. If I stored a hand gun in a secure storage center, how safe is it?

    Anyone have experience with doing so?

    I wouldn't do it. I've known too many friends and relatives who've had their storage space broken into. I once asked someone I know who worked at one of these facilities if that was common and his response was "oh yeah, very common".

    I think it might be wise to leave your weapons with a highly trusted friend, or relative, rather than a storage unit. They just aren't secure enough for my tastes.

    I store arms for a friend of mine.

    If you're in the area, I will store them, too.

    And by "store", I mean "test fire".
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    How about a bank's safety deposit box? They're probably not too expensive.

    Why not keep it with you?

    The cost of a holster is less than a gun safe, gas money driving to and from a friend's house, etc...
    Gun control isn't about guns -- it is about control.

    You can possibly pawn it for a token amount of money. Pawn shops keep weapons pretty secure. You do have to fill out a 4473 "gun purchase" form and submit to a background check to redeem them now, though.
