    I keep my ammo and some handguns in a lockable tool chest of drawers, and it has worked well for me. I want to say I spent 2-300 on it from Lowes, and it is heavy duty. Now that it's loaded up, good luck moving it out of my basement. I can't even lift a side to slide anything under it.

    With the price ammo is these days, 2-300 dollars of investment for a lockable cabinet/tool chest is a worth while investment. How many rounds of 45 Colt can you get for 200 bucks?

    Regarding your cabinet, buy a second and share the load and have a bit more storage space.

    I don't really have space for another cabinet, but if I did it wouldn't be near this one.

    However I have my little project done. I cut up a large 3/4" sheet of plywood into replacement shelves and bought L braces to augment the peg holders. If it looks stressed, I can add some more to bolster up the middle to the back of the cabinet.

    I have more ammo to store but wanted to see how the boards did with what was already in there. I have several more 500 round boxes of 7.62x39 to add.

    Old milsurp locker cabinets with added shelves work well for me. They are lockable too. Handgun calibers on one side, long gun on the other. Larger boxes on heavy duty shelves alongside, and 20MM boxes on the floor.
