    That is the route we took. Had to get in it a couple of times this Spring
    ($15,000 damage to house and barn). Ours has a concrete ceiling with rebar. Door is weakest point, just a regular steel door that opens to inside so it can not get blocked from outside. Have a seperate alarm system on the saferoom.

    I purchased insurance on my weapons this last year. I had to provide pictures of each weapon and the usual rest of the info. Most insurance policys for a home require riders for weapons and jewelry above something like $5000.00. No insurance, no coverage. Also had to show pictures of my safes.

    Thanks Bill, originally that is what I had in mind. I think i'll go with Carver's plan and just up contents coverage.

    You can buy a Homeowners Rider for specific coverage. We pulled data on the firearms from the on-line sellers and got our artwork appraised. Separate policies. Provide details, SNs, and documentation, and your insurance agent can add the rider to your policy. It's a lot better to do that than try to just up contents coverage on collector items

    BTW, if you have an attached garage, you can have a metal storm shelter just set in the garage, and bolt it to the floor. Just be sure the door opens in, not out. If the walls collapse around it, you can be sealed in if the door opens out. I saw one in a house just the other day, didn't have the heart to tell him the door was mounted wrong.
