How do Browning ProSteel Safes hold 54% more long guns?

In a Browning ProSteel safe long guns, handguns and more can be stored on the back of the safe door, adding up to 54% more long gun capacity and making your most used guns easy to access.

1. Set guns on the toe of the recoil pad and allow them to lean slightly forward. Resting guns on the heel of the stock and tipping them back uses up valuable space on the floor of the safe.

2. Place guns without optics on the back row, against the back wall of the safe. This frees up space for scoped firearms on the outer row.

3. Place long guns “heel-to-toe” to store the maximum amount of guns. On the back row, be sure the gun's heel is pressed against the back wall. On the outer row make sure the firearm is touching the toe of the gun on the back row.

4. Group similarly-sized firearms together and adjust barrel racks to find the balance point of the firearms to keep them as vertical as possible.

If the safe is not equipped with a Scope Saver on the DPX Barrel Rack, place often reached for guns without optics on the door to free up space for scoped long guns on the outer row. Firearms with large optics or optics with large adjustment turrets may not fit in the Scope Saver.

Use these helpful hints to maximize space:

More versatile. More storage. More guns.
