How do you store your firearms; in a safe, a gun cabinet, on a rack or some other unique way? I want to know what brands of safes, cabinets, racks, locks you use or what brands do you feel are the best?
All of the above, plus some are leaning in corners. Handguns are in a bedside drawer, hanging in a holster on a door knob, and in the headboard book shelf of the bed. I do have two stack-on safes if I'm going to be gone for an extended period of time, but they won't hold everything. I do not use trigger locks of any kind, and all of mine are absolutely loaded at all times. I don't believe in locking guns up or storing ammo and unloaded guns, since people get killed by empty guns, and in case of an intruder an empty or trigger locked gun is as useful as no gun!

First off, I have no children living in my home and have very few children come to visit. That being said, I keep several loaded handguns throughout the house for home security. The rest of my guns (long guns and the remaining handguns) are locked up in my gun safe.
My safe is made by Cannon, but my first choice would be Liberty with Cannon second. I got too good a deal on mine to pass it up, but am certainly happy with it. It has an electronic lock, but I would definitely go with a combination lock with key next time around.
. Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
Forgive me for not advertising how my firearms are stored, but I feel no one needs to know that bit of information except myself and the other residents of my household. I am a firm believer in a good fire resistant safe.

A firearm is like a parachute, If you need one and don't have one, you may never need one again.
I only have long guns. They are kept in a gun cabinet. The cabinet is in a room that I can lock if guests come that i want to keep away from firearms. Normally none are locked up and I can get right to a rifle and full mag.

With my children all grown and out of the house I keep my long guns in a gun safe. My handguns are like many others here placed around the house where I can access one in any room I happen to be in. They are either revolvers or have the grip and trigger safeties so no external safeties to have to worry about. My safe is built into and attached in a special room that is only accessible by myself and wife. It has the fingerprint reader for opening. This is the fastest way to open it and all the firearms are loaded minus one in the chamber. Fire rated to 2000 degrees.
i keep mine locked up in a "10 thick concrete walled gun room with a 3/4 inch steel door that slides into wall, and then a gun safe door installed in concrete behind it. the door is behind a book case.cant see wont try. i used safe for years, but found it annoying. so when i rennovated part of house i dug in cellar and added hidden gun room. 10x12 enough room for wall racks, reloading bench. cleaning tables and ventilation for fumes, etc. figured guns were worth a lot of money, family heirlooms and i built so wasn't too bad on cost. used tractor to dig, built rebar and forms, concrete pour was high strength mix.sealed outside with drylock then truckbed liner. buried. good forever.
All of my hand guns are in a safe.......As for rifles and shot guns i have a full cabinet and some under the bed in cases some in my closet in cases some in the garage in cases,As for any unwelcome visitors in the middle of the night there is an 870 loaded with double oo buck by my night stand.....
