Question on gun safes

I'd like your advice. I thought it would be neat to chronicle my choosing, buying, and installing a gun safe--complete with pictures, rationale, etc. I'd like to take people 'through the project' from start to finish. But then I thought, Hmm, that might not be such a good idea to give up my safe secrets on the Internet. That might be like saying, "Please rob me. Here is where I hid the guns."

What do you think? Should I write the article, or should I just keep quiet on this project? TIA

Or put that sign in front saying come rob me.
Locks are only for honest people. Luckily most thieves are lazy and or stupid. The jails are full of them. Just don't make it easy for them. I saw a company that makes steel framed safe doors for an entry door or smaller for a closet door. I have a semi-safe room, which is a walk-in closet. Deadbolted door, non-removable hinges, cell phone charger, flashlights, lights, electricity, spare water, lots of guns and ammo. Trying to figure out a couple of gun ports, maybe behind paintings or something. I figure if necessary it will give me and the wife 5-10 minutes or until the locals get there. My liberal friends laugh, but I will probably have the last laugh, if there is a problem.

I would first recomend a company that handle security systems, your insurance company will ussually give you a break on your home owners & rental insurance. Make sure they put a god awful bullhorn siren on the outside of your house. That scares them away before they can grab anything....ussually. Then get a safe from a gunshop. There are several reviews on them.
Just my 2.5 cents worth. I had a break in or an attempt at fort knox but they got scared
You can hear my bullhorn siren at walmart 2 miles away

I'm looking at a Cannon and a couple other gun safes.

keep quiet.............but do tell of the project while leaving out the "details", dont set yourself up. I thought about converting an entire closet in my previous house into a gun locker, but my wife didnt approve

She wanted to put her clothes and shoes in it didn't she?

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses
