Gun Display

Do you display your guns or keep them in a safe?  I’d like to display mine and am looking for some ideas. Let’s see some pictures.

I display my guns, and some accoutrements, in Secluded room. The following pics are some of them. The house is alarmed and the display room has an additional alarm system.

That is a beautiful and extensive display. I used a piece of live edge walnut off my property to display my bow collection. I may do something similar for my flintlock (singular for now).

I feel your thoughts…

I have a couple chunk guns that are too long/large to fit in a safe…so…mostly displayed.  When I’m home, I keep one or two out, but when I travel…back in the safe they go.  I’ve thought about doing a display on the wall with a custom metal strap that lags into wall studs and locks over them making it very difficult to remove without a lot of work.  Have not done it yet though, and…fire is still a concern…

If I have planned workers in my home or visitors…all go into hiding and the safe.  No sense advertising… but sometimes you just gotta live... good luck!

I feel bad for smokinbuck's daughter (if he has one). She's destined for spinsterhood with a dad who's collection looks like that. ;D

I display my favorites. Life’s too short.

The best I ever saw was a two car garage converted into a walk in gun room. Had a very heavy door accessed only from the inside of the home with a spin dial lock and security system. More value in that one room than the rest of the home put together. Walls were 8 inches thick and nearly sound proof.

I live about a mile from a run down trailer park that has some good folk but also a significant population of meth heads. I live alone at the end of a dead end road with my closest neighbors about 200 yards away, there are woods between our houses so they would never see if I got unwanted visitors. 

I can't take any chances;



I leave my bows out, if someone walks off with them I can easily make more, not so my gun collection, I have 9 traditional B/P guns so far.

There are a (very) few I have displayed in a secluded room somewhere in the house.  The others are hidden away.

I like to ensure they remain where they are supposed to be. So in safes with alarms and burglar bomb gas canisters.

I think it's something like, BOOM! and no burglers...or if it's only one burgler it will create 4 out of that one miscreant.  At least that would be nice but... :o
