I use gun socks for my Garands. The rest of the collection just goes into the safe au natural.

Nice & safe within steel walls (Safe).

Mine sits next to my bed :P As well as my XD9. Looking to get another rifle. Curious to see what people carry theirs in.

My AR sits next to my bed with mags and ammo next to it. The rest are in hard cases under the bed.

They sleep in their bed silly, where else?

Made it myself, it was fun too!

I was wondering this as well. I am looking for a hard case, but currently just next to my bed.

Inside the cozy roomy, Forest green, Cannon T36. As proud of that safe as my small collection. Nice big mansion with room for the family to grow.

In the safe when I'm not at home. I'n bed at night, during the day my primary rifle is at arms length in the house. I have a hard sided rolling SKB case I use to transport from the house to the range. As these are RAW's copies of all necesary paperwork are kept inside at all times. have used a wide variety of soft sided cases, but for my EBR's I really like the stuff put out by Koplin.

Don't store your rifles in foam or fleece lined cases, they will trap moisture and cause corrosion. Cases are for transportation only. Stand it in the corner, hang it on a wall or put it in a safe, but don't let any kind of porous material rest against it for extended lengths of time. Silicone gun socks, oiled paper, etc. don't count.

Mine sleep in safe places all over the house, some in bed with me (the wife is getting used to it) some within arms reach all over the house.

rifles and hanguns sleep in the safe.....shotgun stays awake all night;)

I dunno, usually wherever I left it. Backyard, front porch, back seat of the car.

like chuck norris, my rifle doesn't sleep... it waits. :shifty:

In the safe with a loaded mag locked in, but unchambered, with a hidden safe key nearby I can grab even in the dark.

If only I could move my 600lbs safe upstairs. :( My 9mm stays under the mattress locked n loaded. Besides....I'd be afraid of over penetration through the drywalls hitting my neighbors. I gotta get a shotgun a my collection.

Rifles all sleep cozy in Bore-stores in the safe. G21 and 870 sleep right next to the bed...:43:
