Default How do you store/display your C&R rifles?

Looking for ideas.

Why would you want to "display" C&R rifles or any other type of firearms? It is an invitation for them to be stolen. Don't bother saying how safe and secure your residence is. I have seen and investigated burglaries of VERY secure places. Any type of functioning firearm belongs in a LOCKED AND BOLTED DOWN SAFE when it is not in use by its owner.

If you must display something, find a non-firing or dummy gun and display that.

Curtain rod hangers work great. Lots of different styles, and you can hang a long gun without them being in the way. Wall anchor and fishing line work well too.

I only display a firearm if Im at home, as soon as I leave the house the guns get locked up

on table just like at the gun show is good enough, since it's only for the day or while Im home to look at it

The only way I would do this would be if I could construct a room sized safe room with a huge, heavy steel door, no windows and reinforced walls. I have been to a Calgunners gun room that was exactly like this, he had hundreds of guns on display and it was cool as hell. When I buy my next house, I may do this if I can swing a spare room just for guns.

ALL firearms are locked in a safe, in a dead-locked secure room.

I do have a bayonet and sword display in my office.

Agree with all above, nothing on display unless I have company and they are interested. Last time I "displayed" my collection for someone I didn't know was 8 years ago for the BATF Field Agent to inspect and correlate with my bound book. Otherwise all is secured out of sight out of mind!

I agree with the above statements that keeping the guns in a safe is the best thing. However, if I had a non functioning gun I would display it. Leaving a functioning firearm out is asking for trouble.

On Calguns, in pretty photos; natural lighting usually is best, right around twilight for that golden-hour tone that does bluing or nickel wonders for the complexion.

All other times, they're in the safe.

Display? Usually, only at the range, but... Here's a sneak.

How likely is it for them to come by and do that?

You'll have to ask ATF, they were on a "mission" back then to audit C&R FFLs and their paperwork and collections. After the interview and some things I told the Field Agent he was incorrect on (verified with his supervisor in Sacto) he thanked me for "knowing more about C&R laws then he did" last comment was "Don't expect me back anytime soon!"

Hey everyone,

I have an old Mosin M91 that has that been there, done that look and a near smooth bore. I was thinking about mounting it in my garage with a clipped firing pin, but a firing pin is a $10 replacement to a thief. Thinking it'll stay in the safe.

Pit fighter, really liking the blade display! Spartan301 and full clip, nice iron.

Yes, yes, yes!!!
Someday...

I always keep them locked up in the safe. If I have a friend who wants to check some out, i have a series of rubber coated hooks on the wall in the garage. Works well, too when working on a few guns at a time.



Also made a set of wooden stands, couple chunks of 1x4

What passes for a CA approved "safe" is a joke, some 20 gauge steel lock box is not "safe". If you have 1/2" steel and iron it's a different story, but many who advocate the whole never display and put in a "safe" is really not much better than a wood box.

I don't, but have thought recently about making a nice wood and glass cabinet, but a burgler has to break the glass and steal it all, so that's a no go

I do have plans to make cases for my bayonets though
