whats on your wall?

just wondering what sort of guns folks have "hanging" around. ive got this one sat on the fireplace now, ive had the pistol a while but only just finished making the case for it. the box was old, all i did was refinish it with a new interior.

    None on the wall. Too many grandkids running around. Everything lives in a large metal strongbox.

    most of mine live in the safe too. ive got a few on the wall that went out of "proof" and ended up unsafe to shoot so i had them deactivated, now their safe and legal for me to store or display wherever i like.

    Nice job on the box project! Except for the plastic baggie for the balls, us downwind shooters need a BIT more pride than that... :hand:

    (although I keep pre-greased and cut patches for my rifle in a film canister, so who am I to complain?)

    yeah the bag looks crappy but its not staying. if the case is tipped up the ball dont stay there and end up rolling around in the box. now its finished the baggie's in the bin.

    An alternative depending on how "crafty" you want to get - I've seen original and reproduction boxes with hinged lids, secured by a small hook, on compartments holding bullets or the smaller cleaning gear. You could get a small brass hinge (chek out the supplies at Dixie Gun Works for a start!) cut a small piece of thin plywood or scrapwood to fit, either stain it or cover it in felt, and keep the balls in the case. The folding knife looks really good, by the way!

    I made an old timey, bunk house gun rack for my bedroom out of landscaping timbers and dowel rods. My Great Plains Rifle, High Wall and Sharps live there...except when the house is unoccupied for an extended spell...then they go in the vault...

    A clock, some pictures, a cross made of antlers and my TV is all I have hanging on my wall. No need to display anything to attract attention in case anyone gets curious. I like to maintain some opsec to anyone nosey enough to poke around. Everything that is not a designated defensive weapon is locked up nice and tight. Anything that is designated as a defensive weapon is usually on me or the Mrs. or either locked up or hidden away for quick access.
    No, I do not have a pink fuzzy bunny fetish but apparently my Facebook hacking wife does.

    Well, since we're talking about things other than firearms...I have some deer antlers, a tail from the biggest Eastern Turkey I've shot to date,

    a pair of wood ducks my youngest son and I shot out of the same flock when he was 12 or so

    Only this:

    Here in the U.S. and especially down here within 250 miles of Mexico, it is NOT healthy to put guns on your wall unless your whole house is a fortress or a safe. i keep most of my guns locked away in a safe and sometimes they (the Criminals) have been known to take safe and all, if it's not bolted down good.

    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
