Welcome to the forums! I don't know of any readily available lock system for mirrored bypass doors. mainly, because they can be lifted off their rollers, making locks ineffective, basically. Maybe the others will have something better, so hang in there.

I had the same issue when I had roommates. I looked and looked and the only thing I thought MIGHT have worked was a modified version of the type you see on glass display cases. For this use they would be just too ugly and inconvenient.

I also thought about maybe drilling some holes through booth doors in the very edge of the frames, then inserting some sort of rod. That was more just for little prying eyes and curious minds. After I looked at replacement costs if I messed up, I decided to just buy a gun safe ASAP.
