I recently got a message asking about the for an E Cat safe requirements. The guy already had his A, and was looking at getting into B, which like me, logically meant getting an E safe to hold both both a pistol and the existing rifles1.
Sometimes, it seems, this information can be a little hard to get out of your arms officer. A conspiracist would say that the harder the make it, the less E cats are out there, the realist would say that they, like most other government departments are chronically under-resourced and don’t always have the time or answers. Sad but true.
Essentially, though, 6mm steel, dual locks, bolted into concrete (or steel plates behind wood).
Any questions? Ask – I will put them all together and hit up my Arms Officer… 😉
An ‘Endorsed’ Safe is fine for both B and E Class <a target="_blank" title="firearms" href="https://thebloke.co.nz/category/articles/shoot/precision-firearms/">firearms</a> – you could just get a smaller B Safe – but why not keep everything together? ↩
