Third party gun storage need

Messages

I am about to go through a divorce. I have more than one safe’s worth of rifles and handguns that are going to need to be put in the hands of a third party. If I sell them they become a monetary asset she can claim. If I do not, I can balance them against other assets.

I need to find a decent third party storage option in the Portland area ( west Portland).

Anyone? Please keep the “ I’ll hold them for you” joke comments to a minimum.
 
"Sell" them to friends and non effected family for a dollar each, pass out receipts to match each, and change the combo on the safe! When the time comes, you show the "proof" of sales and your good to go! Unless some one were to get a court order forcing you to open the safe(s) it's no ones business but your own! Outside of that, I would speak to your attorney for his/her advice on how to handle the assets in question, just make sure this person is working FOR you, and Not Against you! other then that, a good FFL might be able to help you!

The biggest issue will be secured from either party. While I have been an NRA certified instructor in the past, my wife could claim safety. Unfortunately I have no friends in Oregon I could consign them to. Gun shop us an option but I don’t want to sell my best rifles, shotguns or collectables makarovs and other handguns.

Find a good friend. Then, "I sold them for quick cash to pay the attorney fees......." ;)

"Quick cash" usually means little to nothing. ;)

"Here's 1/2 of little to nothing". ;)

I don't know anything about this other than I saw it mentioned on a podcast. The people behind it are very pro 2A people, and it is intend for temporary holding of guns for people in mental distress, but maybe you could work something out with them. It is very new and may not be fully opperational yet, but I thought I would throw it out there as a potential resource.

Not up and running yet.
 
Bad idea, IMO, if it were.

In your case, just in case her attorney got a hold of where assets went. Regardless of why you did, just what that place will be attempting to do...The mental distress aspect.
I gotta agree with this, bad juju!
If things got ugly, this could be used against you in very hurtful ways!
 
I take it the split isn't amicable? Even putting them into a third party's hands isn't going to guarantee you're safe. If she knows about them she can go after them, or the value of them even if you've found a good hiding spot.

From what the OP says not so much an issue of trying to hide the value but to get them out of the house so they don't get split up and sold. He wants to be able to take their collective value as an asset and balance against something else that the soon to be ex-wife wants.
this is also meant to get the firearms out of the house so when it gets messy and it sounds like it will. She can not claim safety issues and have the firearms confiscated by our lovely so called police officers and then damaged or lost.

The goal is to have them somewhere not int he house. Unless I';ve completely missed the point he does not have anyone that he really knows who can legally hold them for him. I would follow up with Joe13 is you haven't. That shop sounds like what is likely needed.
Best wishes and as someone else mentioned make sure you have a good lawyer. Try to settle things as best possible. Sometime better to take a loss to settle quickly than drag it out and only have the lawyers get rich.
