Acquire Storage

IMG_3779Equipment is expensive and should be stored properly in a clean and secured location.

  1. These are few things to consider when looking for a storage facility:
    • The location should be safe and secure, preferably locked at all times.
    • Find a place that is dry and safe from the elements, moisture will corrode guns and ammunition.
    • Consider a storage unit, many can be rented by the month. Pay for the unit with team fees or donations.
    • Avoid using your own personal garage, most garages are uninsulated and are not a good source for storing large quantities of ammunition.
    • Determine what you will need to store and how often you will need access it.
    • The storage facility should be large enough to store a safe to properly store guns.
    • Assign and document a select small group of trusted coaches allowed to access to your storage facility.
