    The idea of storing guns (even disabled) could get turn you into a criminal. Doesn’t Warshington’s new bill require safe (to them anyway) storage of firearms?

    Yes but if I am not mistaken a trigger lock or cable works according to the new bubblegumed up non constitutional law!

    If case your firearms are stolen be sure you take pictures with the locks on them if you don't have a safe and save them. I am not really not sure how they will track these kinds of things anyways. The locking devices will be taken off and use in a crime anyways at some point if they are stolen.

    When I get done with the two bathroom remodels, I'm thinking the pictures below will be inspiration for [my] next project. It seems like the best solution for how to easily get to the long gun in the back of the safe without having to move everything else.

    I get a bigger box to put them in...

    When I fill up the current I'll add another box and work on filling it, no more removing the current one it was hard enough to get into location, let alone get it out again.

    I completely remove the carpet covered chip board that's only in a safe so they can advertise/boast about the heavy weight of a safe, but takes up too much room
    I found some wire/stackable shelves that fit tightly into my hand gun safe, for lots more room.
    For rifles I cut some U notches in some 1x2 boards and cover the notches with felt weather stripping.
    I put these boards along each side/back and built a removable rifle "caddy", like those pictured in other posts, for the center.
    I just lift out the caddy to get to the perimeter guns.
    The rifles around the perimeter are stored alternating barrel up/barrel down to take up less room.
    works for me,
    :D

    If you don’t mind I’d like a pic, that sounds like a very good idea!

    I'm not near the rifle safe to take a pic, probably what you were looking for.
    Here's a pic of the wire shelves:

    That looks like a good idea! It looks like it could be expandable and adaptable for different applications.
