A gun rack... a gun rack. I don't even own *a* gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack. What am I gonna do with a gun rack?

Actually, I built a pretty nice gun rack in high school shop class, and it works perfectly as a sword display! Been using it for that purpose for over a decade.

Pretty good prices, here is my trouble. I have a gun rack and its full. Should a buy yet another gun rack before I buy my next gun? I think so........

PS: Really you should buy a gun SAFE or at least have an alarm system.

Weight just a minute. As an ex-professional mover, I would really like to know how much this thing weighs before considering a purchase.

On another note: $5 to ship this thing is a steel.

Those metal gun cabinets are minimal security, but they can (and should) be bolted to the floor and wall. If you aren't home and someone has time, they'll get in if they are determined. A gun safe is more expensive and harder to force open. These cabinets will give in to a hammer in about two minutes.

Gives you a good reason to buy some guns!!! I've heard of people building a new gun just becaue they had an extra grip laying around unused.

These cabinets will generally keep your firearms out of reach of children, but there is little you can do to protect them from a determined criminal. Serious thieves don't break into safes, they put a gun to your head (or your SO's) and tell you to open it for them. But, we all know that felons just buy their guns at their local sporting goods store like everyone else, so I wouldn't worry too much. Shouldn't there be a law against that, BTW?

The idea of woot selling guns is not new. I have brought it up for discussion at least twice on Deals.

Here is the last discussion.

These are being shipped FedEx so you'll be positioning it yourself. The good news though is that it's under FedEx's weight limit.

The same way it would handle any other gun that fits on the rack. It's not like gravity works any differently because of a slight change in shape.

It would probably be better served for the people in these states and cities to raise H*ll with or better yet get rid of those in power that support the unreasonable and proven unsuccessful laws to begin with.

The people at Woot are not the problem. Politicians like Bloomberg, Pelosi, Feinstein, etc, etc, etc, are the problem.

Certainly you jest? Anyone with an IQ of double digits (that's right a 10 or higher) can figure out, "when you out law guns, only outlaws will have guns!" Criminals do not care about laws so when the libterds get their way and ban gun sales in an area the only people that obey the law are the good guys. You know, those that are not criminals. The criminals don't obey the laws and they get them through theft or on the black market. Or even from the US Government in a case like "Fast and Furious". It is when the criminal has a gun and you don't that you are assured to be a victim. As to your scenario, I live in a state that the politicians (majority) have not infringed on my constitutional right to "keep and bare arms". They have even taken steps in order to help me prevent becoming a victim. For years we have had the right to "open carry" (carry in plain sight) a weapon. Back in the 90's we gained the right, with specific training, qualifying on a range and a background check to conceal carry. We just lately became a state that has the "castle doctrine". The latter addressing your scenario rather well. If someone is trying to forcibly make way in to my home or vehicle or, if they have done the same, they do not get the chance to put a gun to my head as you would suggest. Here, we take them out where they stand. It is their bad to break in and if we choose, they may pay the ultimate price for doing so. Beats H*ll out of the victim scenario. We here feel much more free as we are allowed some rights and they are not all given to the bad guys.

Gun Cabinets vs Gun Safes

Two of the gun cabinets offered are all metal and have no glass and may appear to be gun safes. They are not and they have not been advertised as such. They are just as stated, gun cabinets.

A gun safe is much heavier and of course much stronger. Working your way into a true and quality gun safe is not going to be something your night burglar will be doing. Also, because of weight, he or they are not going to be carrying it off either. My gun safe is not bolted to the floor or wall. It is around 800 lbs and it took five adults and the removal of a door off the hinges to get it in. There is no quick or quiet way to get it out. This does not make the metal gun cabinet a bad choice. It would be harder for a curious person (kids) to get in and it would hamper a thief more than a cabinet with a glass front but, it could still be pried open with a pry bar and a little effort.

The question was asked about delivery method. If it were a safe the only method for delivery is freight. They get it to your home and it is up to you to get it off the truck and where you want it. These cabinets do not have the weight of a safe and you can get them standard delivery and that is why Woot can do the $5 deal, which is still a very low price to pay for delivery. One person asked if the delivery person would put it where they wanted it. Well, they only have to get it to your door so be thinking, 'nice tip' and they may help.

Actually, the vast majority of gun safes aren't safes either, rather they are Residential Security Containers (if they have any rating at all). And almost all of the inexpensive (less than a few $k) ones could be penetrated in a few short minutes with an ax and sledgehammer. It might take an hour manipulating the lock, or half an hour going at it with tools, but an ax to the side will open it like a sardine can. These type of safes are useful to keep guns out of unauthorized but innocent hands and smash-and-grab type burglaries, and offer some fire protection.

I agree and when I used the term Gun Safe, that is (safe) exactly what I was referring to when I made the comparison. For example, I own a gun safe. But truthfully even though it is rated as a safe like most small safes (as opposed to high security vaults) the strength is in the door and front. The side walls can be penetrated much easier. Not with an axe but if you have the time, a good sized hole drilled to begin with and then probably an hour or so with a good cutting tool. But like I said, when it is in the 800 lb range or more and is made of hardened steel with a true safe door and lock, your local burglar is just not equipped and is too lazy to go through the work and he certainly is not going to run off with it. Mine is made by the Heritage Safe Company and there are several really well made brands to be had as well as easy enough to find. Heritage offers the lower priced end of true rated safes. Your pricing is also practicly correct. However, on the smallest size you can find discounted in the $800 range. The rest are over 1K and can run into several thousands. This was another reason I was pointing out these cabinets were not safes. With that said, they are a very good and affordable way to lock away weapons from children and the like. Also, and certainly they are at least one if not two steps further up the security ladder (as far as theft) from a gun rack of a glass front cabinet. Lastly, they are affordable. As long as the buyer realizes what they are and what they are not, they can be a good investment if only for home safety.

True except that felons don't buy their guns at local shops. Most guns used in crime are either stolen or bought on the street illegally. It is virtually impossible for a felon to buy a gun at a dealers shop with the national background check in place.

So ge a safe so your legal guns don't get used in a crime by some dirtbag.

Received my gun cabinet today. I honestly think it should come with a rubber mallet! The metal pieces were warped, all of them! It is also so front heavy when you open the door the whole thing wants to fall forward! I'm going to have to secure it to the wall and or floor just so that I won't have to worry about it falling over. Sadly the worst product I have ever bought from Woot. Would not recommend.
