Weapon storage safes are needed if you have a weapons license and have legally purchased your firearms as opposed to not having a license and illegal weapons, we have 25 years experience selling servicing and installing all types of weapons storage safes and firearms safes. The Qld Weapons act sets out the BASIC requirements that you need to store weapons to avoid being breached by the Qld Police.
I have over 35 years in the safe industry and I assure you if you ONLY have minimum or basic security you will only deter “basic” criminals. When I first started selling weapons storage safes they had 12 mm thick doors and 10 mm bodies however with the race to offer a cheaper price nearly all manufacturers have decreased the amount of steel in both the body and the door to the point that the strength of the safe is severely compromised.
Qld has the easiest storage laws in Australia and provided the wall of your weapons storage safe is “sturdy” it will be ticked off by the Policeman who inspects it. When I rang the Qld Police Weapons branch for clarification on their interpretation of “sturdy” the office on the phone informed me, “as long as the wall of the cabinet doesn’t flex when you push it” which almost made me fall off my chair.
You can according to the Weapons Branch secure your longarms in a strong wooden box or a locker type box that Supercheap sell provided they check it. We have a large range of quality weapons storage safes on display at or Rocklea showroom for both rifles and pistols. We do not sell the cheap bottom of the range weapons safes as these are easy to buy either on line or at many other places.
Rather we have elected to sell the Lokaway range which have a unique patented swing, slide and lock door and are only marginally more expensive that the cheapies. Of course we also sell “proper safes’ that are available in both new and 2nd hand condition. All safes we sell come with a minimum 12 month warranty and we bing experts are happy to both deliver and bolt down your weapons storage safe.
Call us today on 1300 556500. Note …with the inevitable change to Australia having UNIFORM weapons laws I have it on good authority that the states with least secure storage safes with have to come up to the standard of higher specifications such as NSW.
This means that if and when the Politicians bow to media pressure and with the stoke of a pen change the weapon storage specs to the more stringent NSW ones many rifle safes will have to be upgraded. Consider this when you buy your gun or pistol safe as no matter how much you protest they will trot out the ‘Public safety card” Click here for more details on the Qld Weapons Act – storage of weapons
