I have a 48 gun, safe, the only way you can get 48 long guns in it is to remove the scopes and bolts. It can be done but not practical.
I figure for 48 long guns, I MIGHT get by two 48 gun safes.
Regardless, I think its an un-written law that the gun you want to use today has to be in the back of the safe.
