Converting Closet Into Gun Safe

I'd like to turn this closet [PIC RELATED] into an eco-cheapo gun safe.

If this is possible what the hell do I do?

      I have been thinking about something similar. I have a walk-in closet and figured replace the shitty interior door with something more solid. The hinges and door frame would need reinforcing as well. accordion doors would be a problem, unfortunately. for the walls, a few shets of fire moronant drywall would help for fire resistance, which won't be as good as dedicated fire proofing, tho.

      I own a [CLASS III] weapon. It needs to lock, and fit the definition of a safe (: I)

          I wanted to try something cooler like getting doors that lock

            Okay, so put a 2x4 on it and a padlock. Where was your dad?

            a door that locks has about the same security of a shitty safe. if you want REAL hardcore protection youre going to be shelling out a lot more and doing a lot more work than you think to make a truly secure gun closet.
            assuming you even own this place and not renting (i am assuming this is your house and can whatever the frick you want). What youre thinking is "cool" right now, is just a bunch of extra work.
            If what led you to this is "i need to have something that just works to call it good" then stick with just getting a shit safe/cabinet that will fit in the closet. THEN do more research on making the cabinet a real safe room down the line.

          this, if you're not actually trying to keep it 'really' secure you might as well buy a gun safe off Temu.

        replace the shitty hollow interior door with an exterior door, put a locking handle on it and call it a day, if someone wants to punch through drywall they can still get inside though

        buy a safe and bolt it to the floor

            there are plenty of examples of how to install a door on the fricking home depot website and google. This is the best answer so far

            . Trying to be spoonfed how to build one is dumb and you need to re-evaluate your DIY skills if you are tyring to rely on a bunch of homosexuals on PrepHole for help on this.

      I live in a condo unit and am doing this. Room is 8x5. Will use steel slat walls building has a ceiling fire system installed. Some guns will be fricked if there’s a fire but at least it has some form of fire suppression. The room is my only option right now to store all of my guns but I think it will look great once done. I even have a workbench, ammo storage, and toolbox in there. Am always concerned about weight tho

        Always be concerned how much weight you are adding because it will compromise structural integrity somewhere. Know whats load bearing or not, if you are 1st floor and no basement things underneath because if theres a fire and its on another floor obviously it will fall as it burns. It just depends on your situation of keeping things safe and the structure you are working with. Sometimes just the most basic safety is needed like a lock, like wandering friends or family in a house, or if you live in an area where there are 6'4" 250lb meth head gangs who can and will break into your place

      Also the drywall is 1hr rated so that helps. I am also a bit worried a burglar will have a halligan bar in which case all doors are fricked no matter what

    buy a metal school locker. like the one you used to get shoved into, and weld a bar across the doors with a hinge and frick huge lock on either side. use normal padlocks on each door too. bolt to floor. close closet door. done.

    Thats a really shitty closet design and the doors are trash. I use a walk in closet in my home specifically for a lot of my stuff. Single sturdy door, on the top story of my home, lock for my door. Looks like a regular closet and if anyone manages to make their way up all of my stairs to try and break it in shits fricked anyway and me and my family, dog and whoever else are either dead or they have spent too much time and made too much noise for my neighbors to have not done something.
    If its just for simple storage to keep them safe from kids or maybe visiting friends who get too drunk, just make sure the door has a lock.

      Why do you need a safe for a single heritage rough rider?

        yea no those wont stand up to even the cheapest of bolt cutters/crack head with a crowbar.

        Those hasps are dogshit they wont withstand any amount of force, dont even need a prybar.

        I have a CLASS III wep. It needs to be locked up. I also have personal docs that need to be secured. I'm only just showing off a few of my items for fun. The purpose for this is to keep nosey people out.

          Then if its merely a small deterrent than yes, the hasps and a padlock will be sufficient against kids and nosey house guests. Depending on the door to the closet you could even get a gate latch and padlock that.
          If you wanted to go a little bit of the extra mile on it as the other anons said a cheap and ok gun cabinet/shit safe is fine too and can be less conspicuous than "anon why do you padlock your closet".
          Again, not the greatest for actual security but if you're just trying to meet a definition or the bare minimum then what you have is fine

            Oh and forgot to add. Check on your state definition of "Gun room" or "vault" in the regulation making you required to lock up your Class 3. In some cases they specifically define it as a room purpose built for secure storage of firearms or valuables. Meaning no amount of padlocks and hasps will meet the definition. If thats the case then get the gun cabinet/safe. Or just do it anyway, not like theyll inspect your house.
