Emailing pics of the gats with the serials is what I do and it actually help to recover a stolen gun, and actually returned to its owner!

I had a bad pic but now I take MUCH better pics of them because THAT experience.

I'll relieve you from it.

One thing about this weather is that I can wear my shoulder holster all day at the store.

So much more comfortable!

The only problem with that is if you use a local email client that deletes the emails off the server when you grab them. If you use web-mail or make sure you don't delete them off the server then it wouldn't be a problem.

I read somewhere, that even in the fire proof safes they get pretty darn hot inside, and the weapons inside could be compromisied if there is a fire...anyone have thoughts on that? If that is the case...what do you do?...I have some OLD stuff that would be impossible to replace.
I don't think it's a big security issue. Hard copies can always be lost, damaged or stolen. You don't even need to do a list of the serials if you just take pictures of each which would simplify things a bit.

Although if you do use a CD, you might want to have at least two copies in different locations.

If you're worried about the safe, you could always install an automatic sprinkler system above the safe. Fire safes are usually rated in minutes. If the safe is sealed you shouldn't have problems with water getting in. Although it's still a concern. Heat and water will damage wood and cause rust to form quickly. This would be a concern after a fire and with structural damage where you can't reenter it right away. So even if they don't burn in the fire they could still get damaged.

This video is making the rounds today, so I thought I would post it up since we're talking about serial numbers and such.



Just want to point out that the serial numbers were most likely still intact and able to be read. Guns are toast though.

I see them fairly often at a price that I like.

Soft shooting or smacks your hand?

My Liberty safe is "fireproof", but firearms do not have to burn to be ruined. I have some old guns that could not be replaced, insurance or not, if the fire were hot enough.

Some good friends of mine had a house fire this last Sunday. The first thing he did was grab his firearms (in cases, he did not have a safe) and threw them out into the front yard then he ran back in to get whatever else he could. The fire grew so rapidly (there was a big wind storm) that the yard burned before he could move them farther away and he lost all of his guns. The house and its contents were a total loss.
