The first wall of my new gun room is ready.

I placed my Winchesters from Model 1866 to 1886 and the ammunition that came with it.

How do you like it? What would you do differently?

I love it–very nicely done and I wouldn’t change a thing except for security or fire protection.  Mine are all cooped up in a safe in fear of theft or fire.  I live only 20 minutes away from Portland, Oregon…enough said.

Thank you for the compliment.

Here in germany we have very strict laws on the storage of firearms. The complete gun room is practically an extra large bank safe.

Next week I want to set up a showcase with the self-loading rifles.

I really like it as well.  I wouldn’t change anything either.  I’m looking forward to seeing your self-loader display.  Cool

I used to visit an old man that built a gun room in his basement with a Liberty vault door. Everything was out on display. I still have some stuff I got from him. I was sitting in there with him and my dad one day when he noticed that my dad kept eyeballing something over in the corner. He asked what dad was so interested in. Dad said, “That floor safe over there. I’ve seen one like that somewhere before.” Earl said, “You should recognize it. It was in the Carrolls store where you grew up and you probably walked past it a thousand times.”

Old Logger

 Would that be the Carrolls  store located in SW Washington between Kelso and Kalama?

Sure would. That is my home town.

I love it and think you did a wonderful job.  I wish more folks would post photos of their gun room displays.  I find it exciting  and interesting.

That is outstanding! Nicely displayed. I would love to be able to display some of my toys. Worked too hard to get them, just to be stolen or burned. I do display my muzzleloaders that I have built.

The first showcase is ready. I filled it with the self-loaders and slide action rifles.

Next I want to make a showcase with M 1892s and M 1894s.

Well done.
What are those clamps on the barrel that hold your guns upright?

These are screw bases for cable ties. In addition, a plastic tube as a spacer and everything screwed. Detachable cable ties hold the barrel.

I as well!! 

It’s a shame some wonderful guns are locked away in safes rarely seeing the light-of-day. I also understand the need for maximum security and safety as well…

Wonderful display.  I really envy being able to display them so nicely.  Having them hidden in safes is a terrible way to enjoy them. Particularly for those in the back of the safe.  And every time a safe is unloaded to get at those in the back, there is the danger of the terrible and dreaded, “safe ding” EmbarassedYellEmbarassedYell

Any law against keeping them in a thin fabric sleeve?

I thought about building a room like this for 15 years and never had the time.

The only advantage of the damn Covid-19 is that I could finally start and have been building on it every day for the last five months.

I am unaware of such a law.  What is the experience out there with this practice?  What materials used?  Something that would breathe would be important I would assume.
