i used to keep mine in my living room. Climate controlled and safe! If anyone wanted to come inside uninvited they would have to deal with either the bulldog or myself and a 12 gauge, or both!

Garage with pit bull (the dog is more likely to lick a burglar to death than bite him lol)

I also have some 4x4 boards that I put between the top of the garage door and the rail you would have to bring the whole door down to get in it....

I just keep it in the garage. If someone wnats it bad enough to break in and take it, leaving a lot of things much easier to steal and worth just as much, they can have it. I have insurance, and will just replace it.

When I'm out I generally leave it where I can see it.
