Gun Safe modification

Checking if anyone have modified a gun safe to be +150kg by adding weights to the bottom of the safe.

Main reason is you then do not need to bolt it to a surface.

Take a look at the requirements for your state storage laws to be sure it is done in a compliant manner. Generally the requirements are for the weight to be part of the actual safe, eg some plate welded on, not just some weight stacked in the bottom.

I've always bolted mine.

I know if I had to add 150kg to my safe, a few of my rifles wouldn't fit in anymore and I'd need another safe and another 150kg...

Good point

I was thinking in the line of making lead bricks with a hole to bolt it to the floor, so instead of bolting down, I bolt up to hold the lead bricks in place, but like Duncan’s said, check the height of your weapon.

i cannot bolt because I will be renting an unit in Melbourne, so 150kg safe or gun storage are my options
