    Default Where to Temporarily Store my Stuff??

    This Fall I'm going back to college out of state and I'm running into a bit of an issue. I've moved around so much the past few years and in places where I didn't feel safe storing my firearms, like bottom floor apartments that would be easy to break into, so I've kept them in a safe at a relative's place that was never far from me. My issue is that I am going to be moving out of state and would like to bring my guns with me for easy access to still be an active shooter, but last time I checked guns and school property don't really mix well and I'm not about to try anything risky or illegal. I've been doing some research about possible places to store them, such as self storage units and some people were even talking about bank safe deposit boxes. I've had things made of steel in self storage units that got rusted to hell because of the humidity and I'm not sure how the whole bank safe deposit boxes thing would work. Any ideas or suggestions?

    Two of the schools I'm hoping to get into are in MA by the way. They'll love me lol!

    A bank safe deposit box. I wouldn't suggest you try that either.

    you only have a couple options, a out of state friend or get your own place with a gun safe.

    I'm guessing you are talking about handguns being you mentioned the possibility of keeping them in a safe deposit box. First would be checking the local laws regarding bringing handguns into whatever state you are going to and or traveling through to get there. If they are nice guns I'll let you keep them at my house.

    I manage storage units along with apartments---------- unless climate controlled forget it. Even then, theft is a big issue if someone thinks firearms are in there.

    Try a local gunstore near where you are going to be...for a small fee maybe they'll keep in a back room for you, provided you release them of any liability. I did that when I worked in Alaska and lived in employee housing, where guns were verboten. Gun store in Fairbanks stored my pistol and rifle that I insisted on bringing, and I picked it up whenever I wanted to go shooting. Worth asking, anyways, and all they can say is no.....

    If you get into a school in MA, forget about taking your firearms with you. Seriously, don't even try ...... unless you want to lose them and your freedom. MA is anal retentive about firearms. Here is the list of which firearm models that are approved to own in MA ---> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] And there's the list of firearm models approved for target shooting ---> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] And then there's the large capacity roster ---> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] And also there is the application to use your gun for target shooting ---> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] And all of that is after you take the required classes and beg for permission to be allowed to process one. And if you are smiled upon by the MA authorities, then you have to register each firearm.

    I you can bolt down a safe in a small storage room where the walls are close to the sides of the safe's door, 1' or less, you would have a fairly secure storage. With the walls that close to the sides of the safe they would have to knock down the walls to get any leverage to pry the door open. Just need to find a small storage room that will let you put some anchor bolts in the floor. I did that when I was in school and the putting the bolts in their floor didn't bother then when I showed them what would be in the floor after I left. Most storage facilities have cameras set up and it would take a long time and a lot of noise to get in, something criminals don't like.

    Hmmm. Having secure a room with few rows of gun safes for rent seems like an obvious opportunity for any self-storage operation. Especially in states with lots of restrictions.
