The most awesome idea for a coffee table ever.
 
Just got hom from my LGS, where the owner told about his idea for a coffee table...

He's sold several crates of Mosin Nagants and said that he would like to get another and put a glass top on it, leaving the Mosin's untouched.

He said that he wanted to etch a small "Break in case of emergency" in the corner. I thought it sounded like an awesome idea.:cool:

Nice! More like 'Break in case of emergency, and spend the next 2 weeks cleaning cosmoline off guns'

Yeah, I believe I would clean them up a bit and then put them back in.:p

A very tough Plexiglases with a hidden hinge would work to, that way if someone tried to steal them it would be hard to figure out.

Pretty Cool...

I'm waiting for my next bank or check cashing project hoping to snag a scrap piece of ballistic glass. Most teller windows are Level II rated and should stop common pistol rounds.

I thought I'd pump an array of cool defensive rounds into the glass then mount it to a table "holes down" so you could see the bullet's noses expanded or partially expanded. :cool:

Doing some research it sounds like the ballistic glass layers separate upon impact creating a large opaque area so I don't think I'll get the clear "round stuck in glass" look I was hoping for...:mad:

It will be fun finding out though! :)

Well in a more perfect world this would be a great idea! :)

Do not use the glass- it is incredibly heavy, and yes, immediate area of impact become opaque. Get some 1 inch Lexan polycarbonate. Low velocity stuff bounces off (45s) Hi Vel gets stuck in.

Mighty expensive stuff! Will scratch quite easily too.

Do we even want to know how you know that? :D

You could possible place a piece of regular glass over it to prevent scratches. How expensive is that stuff?
