If your just getting started, I'm anxious to see the rest of the decorations!
Oh yeah, there's more decoratin' to do. A buddy built this rack for me about 10 years ago. It has been hiding in a walk-in closet, unpainted ever since. Today, it got several coats of paint and dragged upstairs.
I'm too anal I guess. I'd have to build the racks so the rifles sit level. I built a rack in Jr. High, and modded the pattern so the "hooks" were uneven and my guns sat fairly level. Wonder whatever happened to that thing......
I like that tall rack, that's awesome! Wish I had space for something like that. Not sure about the green color though. It's not mounted, is it? Awfully close to the door.
The rack with the M1s has an offset. They would lay horizontal, if I took the slings off of the rifles. I didn't think of it when I designed the big rack. It isn't mounted yet; but, that's pretty close to where it will rest. The door you see is to a closet. It won't be open.
Nice and I see if you put the rifles in that green rack you will not be able to open the door nor can the wife get in Make sure you have enough supplies to stay alive.
Yeppers, a man needs a project or two...
That's an open closet door, it won't be in the way, I promise. The new man cave has two closets. Perfect for the fella that has to keep two dozen different cartridges in stock.
In fact, my Baby served me coffee, biscuits and gravy in the man cave this morning. It don't get any better than that!
I would be hesitant to put all my rifles out for the ease of burglars.. Shat happene you know...
You need one of these....
Lookin good Joker. Hope you come up with some more creative ideas for your cave.
Don't need one of those...the watch leopard is on duty!!!
It looks like you enjoy your tunes too!
You sell that cat and you can buy 5 more Garands I seen what those bad boys go for and thought about getting one until I seen the cost. Is it top end of the breed or middle?? Rick B
Hi Rick ... Yep, you are correct. I bought Ra from a breeder in Indianapolis, Grace on High Bengals. Five field grade SA M1s from the CMP is pretty close. I wouldn't trade my baby for a whole stack of M1s. These American Bengal cats behave more like dogs than cats. Besides being gorgeous, he has a really sweet disposition and is very smart...maybe too smart. I keep catching him trying to open doors.
He is a F2 foundation kitty which puts him right at top. His maternal grandpaw, Malaki of Texas Star is an Asian Leopard Cat and most of the other genetic contributors are SBT American Bengals.
You might talk to Tia of Grace on High Bengals. She set me up with an easy payment plan while I was waiting for the next litter of kittens. The kitties she breeds and raises are simply incredible in their beauty and personalities.
rondog was right, I should have designed the rack with an offset. That was 10 years ago. When, I had the rack built, I didn't have most of the rifles. I just had a vague plan that I wanted to build a display as a tribute to "The Greatest Generation."
I may have to replace the M1 Carbine with a WWII refurbished Model of 1917 that didn't make the original cut. It would sit more level than the carbine.
Or maybe just put a small spacer under the front ends to level them up if you want?
I always look for the easy way. Some call it lazy, I call it efficient...
Nice. Looks like a lot of what I have.
I have 2 long walls in the gun room, one is for pistols and the other for 2 rows of long guns. I use peg board to hang to guns on, works great. One end is a window and the other a closet.
Don't have near enuf room for everything so most is in the safes.
That's still very cool! I wish I had a space to setup something like that. Basement's just too small and cluttered. I'd have the bayonets mounted on all my rifles too!
Most of my firearms are in the gun safe. I just don't have room in the safe for everything. I have secured the room with extra locks and alarm sensors. I think the WWII stuff deserves to be displayed.
Yeah, I'm thinking about mounting bayonets on them. I have them for most of the rifles.
I'll take more pictures as a get on with the decoratin'. I've got three tin signs I need to put up. And Dad's John Wayne stuff. Can't forget the John Wayne stuff!
