    I would have used a stepped cutting bit--I have a greenlee--as it make a nicer edge in sheetmetal.
    The wood block drill guide is spot on, too.

    Anyone else have a reflex to:
    A, washer the nuts and bolts
    B, paint the exposed metal edges

    That's a great idea, but it would be more efficient to cut a slot. Drill two holes and remove the width with a jigsaw. Then you could use one of those hasps that locks down the snap plate.

    Isn't our ammo supposed to be behind a locked door? It would be an additional unnecessary step in the process to get to the bang part if one were in a hurry.

    I just use padlocks that have a little mounting chain on them. thread the chain through the hole in the handle and the bail and lock the other end of the chain up.
