    Quite a worry for someone losing ammunition, let alone the other stuff, the post shows the perceived value of this site

    Am I correct in assuming that these fire arms were Bolt action?, and If my assumption is correct then the Fire arms would be of no use as the Bolts would be kept somewhere else, and nowhere near the Fire arms or the Ammunition.???
    I may be going out on a limb here, but this is what i believe to be BASIC Fire arm security?

    Lots of people here have one safe for the rifles and another for the ammo, it's quite common for bolts to be locked in the ammo safe.

    Really???? Don't get me wrong! I got my Fire Arms in New Zealand, and one thing the license stipulates is 3 points of security. When the Fire arms officer of the Police comes to check your security
    Its a Gun cabinet Bolted to the floor and the wall, A locked box for ammo, and another box for your bolts all stored separately or your in the *****.

    Yes really! (Afaik it's not even a legal requirement to seperate bolts from rifle - just mostly considered good practice). Only a legal requirement to have separate lockable storage for ammo and firearms.

    Yes but that separate ammo safe can be inside the rifle cabinet
