    My gun safe is a cheap-a$$ one I probably bought 20 years ago. After two moves, I can't find the spare key. If I lose the one I have (like I did with all of my guns in that boating accident) I couldn't get into it easily anymore. I looked around on the internet some, but didn't find a good solution. It's one of those tubular ACE keys from Chicago Lock Company. Any suggestions?

    Yeah - I really, really like the "DO NOT DUPLICATE" text on the one I've got.

    LOL. Yeah, it's got a number on it. I'll call some local locksmiths tomorrow and see what responses I get. If I drop my keys in the same lake I lost all of my guns in, I don't like the prospect of a drill and a crowbar to get into the safe.
