Why A Secure Gun Storage Facility Is Important

Do you have a secure gun storage facility? Are you a new gun owner?

You may be feeling overwhelmed by the responsibility of keeping your gun safe. 

As such, it’s important for you to be prepared and understand the importance of proper gun storage.

Here, we’ll explore why a secure firearms storage facility like Gun Bar can give you peace of mind when it comes to gun safety and security.

As a gun owner, you understand the importance of safety and security when it comes to your firearms. 

Obviously, you take the necessary precautions to ensure that your weapons are stored securely and away from unauthorised personnel.

But there is an extra layer of protection that you can add to your firearms storage plan: a firearms storage facility.

Secure gun storage facilities offer gun owners that extra layer of security and peace of mind.

As such, they provide a safe and secure environment to store your firearms, and they offer a variety of features that help ensure your weapons kept in ideal conditions.

Firearm Storage Facilities Are Designed To Be Secure

The most important benefit of using a firearms storage facility is that it provides a secure environment for your firearms.

In short, that means keeping undesirables out and taking every measure possible to prevent the contents falling into the wrong hands

At Gun Bar we are equipped with state-of-the-art security systems.

This includes monitored alarms, monitored surveillance cameras, facial recognition systems, access control systems, climatic sensors, seismic sensors and more.

Certainly, we are not your average gun storage facility

At our very core, we are a technology company and we’re proud of the extent to which we have over engineered our facility to ensure that when you entrust your firearms into our care, you do so with the knowledge that we take privacy and security very seriously.

Firearm Storage Facilities: Designed To Be Weatherproof

There was recent flooding in South East Queensland in 2021 & 2022 and farther back in 2011.

Many licensed firearm owners homes were inundated with flood water during this time.

Gun Bar’s vault facility is flood proof – now that’s a big claim.

Honestly, it would take a flood of biblical proportions for inundation of flood water, sea water, tidal surge or leaking hoses or pipes for water to bother our secure gun storage facility in Spring Hill.

Spring Hill, the home of Gun Bar is as the name suggests. On top of a hill. 

We overlook Fortitude Valley, Brisbane CBD and bordered by Rosalie, Paddington & Red Hill to the West and Herston and Bowen Hills to the North East. 

Back to being weatherproof.

As mentioned earlier, we have climatic sensors installed throughout the Gun Bar facility to monitor temperature and humidity. 

We maintain our vault space at a very comfortable 23C year round with an average humidity of 55% which we believe to be the best environment for timber gun stocks and to inhibit rusting of guns.

Sometimes You Need A Secure Gun Storage Facility

Through no fault of your own, sometimes it is necessary to seek an alternative method of firearm storage.

We go as far as to say

We store guns at times when you can’t whatever the reason

Police Seizure Of Firearms

Police authorities can seize firearms from a licensed firearm owner for a variety of reasons. Most commonly:

  • Domestic Violence Accusations – Once accused of Domestic Violence the first step by Police is to seize firearms lawfully held. Whether the claim is valid or not, an accusation can trigger this. We’ve written about this topic in more detail in the article The Case For Dedicated Firearm Storage Facilities
  • Drug Charges – Get picked up by Police on drugs charges? You’re almost certain to have your firearms seized by Police until the outcome of court proceedings against your. 
  • Criminal Convictions – Across the entire board. High Range Blood Alcohol? Shoplifting? Assault? A criminal conviction places a question mark over your character. 
  • Fitness of Character – Made a false or misleading claim when obtaining your licence? You could be at risk of Police seizing your firearms.
  • Deceased Estate Ownership – for the sake of this discussion, an elderly family member has suddenly passed away and no one in the immediate family is licensed for safe keeping. For more information about Deceased Estates & Used Guns check out our blog
