Are you saying that you can bolt a pistol safe on top of a bolted-down rifle safe and be legally compliant ? :?:


Nope I haven't bolted the pistol safe into the rifles safes (they come with 4 10mm holes drilled in the back)

Just position them on top and affix with the 4 backplate anchor points...immovable once the rifle safe is in. There is nothing in NSW regulations that stipulates anything other than 4 points in wall and or base for any safe, Cat A/B or H. I also keep a printout of the safe storage regs pdf in my ammo cabinet, for reference..

Note: I have always positioned my safes into a corner so any attempted jimmying would only be more difficult.

My CZ & Browning Buckmark using the optional shelves. They rate this as a 6-8 gun safe, so I’m not sure a 4 gun safe would be wide enough.

And here I am thinking i was a bit over exuberant doing this as well. It's called CYA in case the inspection officer raises questions.

"Over exuberant" lol I like that :)

I've only had one inspection, but it turned out the officer thought that ammo had to be in gunsafe like storage (hey, we're not WA! yet lol)

So I like to think of it as being uh, prepared rather than paranoid :mrgreen:
