Default Got my Gun Cabinet

My buddy needed to clear his third bedroom/office out. I've been admiring his gun cabinet for years because it displays rifles horizontally rather than vertically. I like to see the side of the rifle rather than the trigger guard and underside of the stock. Long story short, he gave it to me and delivered it yesterday. Then to top off his generosity, he and his girlfriend took us out to lunch.

I had to move two shelving units out of the cave and to the basement to accommodate it. There was a side benefit to that, I got my tools and the basement fairly well organized.

Obligatory pic is below. You'll notice that it's empty. This is because of the late and lamented FTF Cruise whereupon we all lost all our firearms. However, I can just picture rifles in there, if I had any.

That's a nice cabinet. I wouldn't mind something like that myself.

It will hold twelve rifles.

I like it! Too bad you have to restart your rifle collection. I know how you feel, I lost mine in the great fire.
