High capacity gun safes are safes that can store a large number of firearms and the smallest high capacity gun safe can be a 24 gun safe. That type of gun safe can store 24 long guns and handguns inside, which means it is not a small gun safe so you have to have the room for it.
You can store your 24-gun collection in a gun cabinet or in a gun safe. There aren’t that many differences in their design except the overall durability. The gun cabinet will keep your firearm collection safe but without electronic, biometric and those types of locks.
The gun safe, on the other hand, can store your firearms in sturdier construction with higher security level because their construction is stronger, they are heavier and they have more security features. The gun safes have can have a fire and water protection and their price is higher than the price of the gun cabinets.
But, remember, most gun safes can’t store that amount of firearms inside. The number (in this case 24) is the number of the maximum guns in the safe. If you want your guns to be one on top of the other, then you can buy the safe for the maximum number of firearms. I would recommend you go 10% lower which means that for the 24-gun collection I would recommend for example the 30-gun safe capacity. That is the story with all high capacity gun safes, not just this one.
I want to share with you most popular 24 gun safes and cabinets so you can choose the one that suits your needs best.
