Yes, there is certainly way more room for pistols and revolvers. I can easily add 30-40 more pistols if organized correctly. Probably even more RLOL!

Well... there's range trip ammo (1 trip's worth). Where do you store the other 50k rounds?

The worst are ARs with optics and vertical grips and such. Those blasted things never sit correctly and often won't even fit where you want 'em unless they take up two spaces in the safe. Unfortunately many safes are partitioned inside with ordinary bolt-action hunting rifles in mind, not EBRs.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Try and see how many long range rigs you can fit.

In your residential security container. Certainly not what they visualized when they were making capacity claims.

Storing ammo in a safe is not a good idea.
In case of a fire, you pretty much created a bomb!

Yeah, not so much.

Ammunition is actually pretty tame in a fire, campfire games included. Standard turnout gear is completely up to the task. A safe will even contain things further.

The bullet points from the video (no pun intended):

Hard to ignite
No chain reaction
No mass explosion
Standard firefighting techniques

A couple years ago a nearby neighbor's house caught fire, and he had a ton of ammo stored in the basement. I was actually standing across the street watching as the ammo cooked off. All I observed was a constant sound like popping popcorn among the existing flames. No secondary explosion or big orange fireball like Hollywood loves to portray. The firefighters simply continued to pour water on the fire and keep their distance as would be prudent in any large fire where there were no occupants to risk going in and saving.
