Gun cabinets

Photobucket

So I have decided that while it is neat having guns hanging all over the house, the reality is that they just get too dusty real quick and I have a lot of rifles (more than I post) to clean so I will drag all of my woodworking shit out of moms shed and get busy. I have decided on the design above except with some modifications, I plan on making it twice as wide, from about 22" to 44" and maybe a tad deeper to accommodate my AK and AR's with mags installed. I think it will turn out to be a fun project that will keep me out in the garage and out of the wife's hair....lol

guns in one place for the burglars. Glass doors are a real safety feature. I think a safe would be a better way.
I have a small safe room, part of my walkin closet, that I deadbolted, made the hinges non removable, solid door and frame.
Locks are only for honest people anyway!
That is a great looking case though. Put it on casters for easy rolling around...

Hamp i have a glass one as well.. I figure if i have them I'm going to enjoy them, thats the only problem with the super security things.. I sorta like picking mine up every other day or so, and a lot easier when thier out.. be curious how others feel on this, two clear sides to this story..

first time.......If someone want's to get into something, they will.....Even the high dollar super security safes are no match for my acetylene torch. In my way of thinking, a gun that is locked up is just as useless as one that is unloaded.....And sam, there is no such thing as "non removable"

My brother in-law built his own gun cabinet.....turned out real nice! He put solid doors on it instead of glass, just to be different.

so a cabinet full

of loaded guns with a glass door,if i read that right.I really like the wood cabinet,reminds me of John Wayne in "McClintock",after he is told by his daughter to defend her honor,he goes to the gun cabinet,pulls out a pistol,shoots the young man,only the gun was a starter pistol.So Hamp,keep a loaded starter pistol,you might go up against it sometime.

defend my daughter's honor, it ain't going to be with a starter pistol.....The young man in question had better be packing a 'Roscoe', cause' I got no use for a starter pistol......He will have to deal with the "Judge"......alternating rounds of .410 and .45 LC ought to be enough 'salt and pepper' for the situation....lol

Your daughter's honor?

You have AK's don't you? A full mag in the chest should convince whoever it is that they made a serious mistake.

Gun Cabs

Im hoping to build one with my step dad this spring. Nothing fancy just a cab to keep my guns in from the humidity I deal with here.

Cabinet

I have two of those pictured cabinets. Made by American Furniture but can be found now and then at a good price on Sportsman Guide. I keep inexpensive items in them - four safes for other things. Sounds like a fun project. You might consider double doors meeting at the cabinet center. Otherwise you are looking at a 50" wide door which would be awfully heavy.

It's too late for me, save yourself.

HW, I might also add, if you go w/ this design, I saved one of my assembly booklets and have all the original mfgr. part numbers for the hinges, locks, etc. Let me know if you can use them.

handguns

I made a cabinet in the 80s and Loved the size but wish I added places for knives and handguns. I had two drawers one for cleaning kit and one for ammo. My cabinet was 36" wide with two doors and a lock(never used). I grew up in an area where keeping guns in the rack of your truck and a couple hanging in the antlers of a buck in the porch. I guess we just thought it was only fair (we didn't want to shot a unarmed man). The times have changed however and I now keep trigger locks on all rifles and ammo in another room. I keep only one loaded and it's in a bed safe.
