The storage of firearms and compliance with the rules and all requirements is an extremely responsible task of the owner. Now we will find out what requirements you must meet in order to have the right to store firearms in your home, where the special weapon safe box must be placed and how to choose it.
What are the requirements for storing firearms in a safe box
As the owner of a pistol or rifle, you are subject to control and inspection by the KOS (control of hazardous materials) service regarding compliance with the requirements for storage in a metal safe. In short, according to the requirements, the safe must be fixed and equipped with a secret locking mechanism. It must be located in a place where it is difficult for children and outsiders to reach.
Another requirement for storage is that the metal safe box must be attached simultaneously to the floor and the wall or the ceiling and the wall, which will make its theft or illegal removal as difficult as possible. It is obligatory to lock it with a key and its location must correspond to the address indicated in your ID card.
Where to install
The weapon safe box must be located in a place where it is as discreetly concealed as possible and the access of outsiders or other family members is minimal. These can be basements, closets, attics and roof rooms, workshops, etc. As mentioned, the attachment of the metal weapon safe box must be at least two-point - the lower side for the floor and the bottom for the wall with powerful dowels and bolts to prevent any theft.
