I know there's "not much" $$ laying around, but it'd help knowing a ball park budget.... $100...$350...?

Watch Craigslist....Tractor Supply carries a 10 gun safe for $350 on their website....http://www.tractorsupply.com/tools/s...k-safe-4061927

Dick's Sporting Goods has Stack-on gun cabinets for under two benjamins. You can bolt those to the wall, the floor, or anything else hard to move (though you'd best ask the landlord first, and you might have to leave it with the apartment).

First,

Why would you tell us all of the guns you own?

Second, get a gun cabinet for about 150 or you can pick up a gun safe for about 300-400.

These two options will only delay a good thief, but shoul dbe done.

A friends of mine had his guns stolen from his apt. because the thieves broke into the managers office and took a master key.

At the time, he did not have a safe or cabinet. hind site 20/20.

Also look into insurance depending on the worth of your firearms.

Check NRA website for firearm insurance. They will insure the gun and anything attached to the gun, rings, scope, sling etc.

I have a wooden gun cabinet with a glass front. (My Dad's) anyway I put an eye bolt through the back into a wall stud. I then placed a vinyl wrapped cable lock ( under $25 if I remember right) that I bought a Dunhams through the trigger guards and eye bolt. Not as good as a safe, but will slow a thief down a bit. I've seen wood gun cabinets at Salvation army stores and places like that pretty cheap.

Sounds like the OP is more concerned with having the actual guns themselves than any kind of dollar amount.

Keep your eyes peeled for sales at dicks, cabelas and the like. thats the best advice i can give you
