It goes without saying that owning firearms also requires a sense of responsibility. Care needs to be taken to ensure that your weapons are being stored properly when they are not in use. Proper gun storage not only ensures that your household is protected, it also ensures that your firearm itself is properly persevered and will last you a lifetime.
Practical steps can be taken to ensure that your gun is safe. Never store your ammunition in the same case or possibly even the same room as your firearm. Never, under any circumstances, should you store any ammunition in the firearm itself. Another step that should be taken is to make sure that clips and other removable devices are taken off the firearm and stored in separate locations. This will make your weapon unusable in the instance that a child or inexperienced individual gets their hands on it, or steals it. Your firearm itself should be stored in a child proof and lockable container. Firearm lockers and storage containers are readily available for purchase at hundreds of locations across North America.
During off season, extra care needs to be given to your weapon. Whether it is a priceless and historic relic or a daily hunter’s favorite gun, you will want your gun to last for the lifetime it was intended to. Your firearm takes a daily beating not only from use but from the elements it is exposed too. Weather, surface chemicals, cleaning agents, corrosive gases in the atmosphere, and even pollution; all wear out your firearm, causing damage that degrades its quality slowly and can result in rust and mechanism failure. When you are storing your gun during the off season, bags such as those made by PreservAll have been scientifically proven to greatly extend the life of your weapon.
The PreservAll difference
These bags are designed to protect your gun from damaging elements by forming a protective seal between your gun and its surroundings. The secret to these bags is the product they are made of. Copper particles work to neutralize damaging elements on the outside, completely protecting your gun from all environmental damage on the inside. The inside of the bag is packaged in such a way that there are zero harmful elements present. While this sounds minor, think of the bags and fabrics you are currently using.
If there are toxins or harmful elements of any kind in them, you are literally sealing your gun in with them. It can be as simple as the chemicals used to make the bag in the first place or even the laundry detergent of the towels or blankets. Intercept technology was designed over 25 years ago to create a protective barrier between valuables and the elements. Now this same technology is available for use in your own home with your firearms.
Invest in protection for your protection
Weapon ownership comes with a greater responsibility. Owners need to ensure that they are taking the correct steps, not only in their daily gun storage, but their off season storage as well. By protecting both your household and your weapon, you will be ensured of optimum weapon quality which produces better safety. Take care that both your household and your weapon last the lifetime which they were intended for.
