Default My new gun closet

I have not really needed a "secure" location for my firearms as my house is pretty much never empty and the two dogs take care of "unexpected" visitors (lol...Jehovah's witness does stay long at the door).

I did think however; what about the very few times the house is empty and should someone get past the dogs, I don't want to make it easy for them. So I converted my office closet into my gun closet.

solid wood door, deadbolt key lock. Can it be broken into ? Sure - with a crowbar, time and effort but short of a gun safe (which is expensive and not on the wife's top 10 wish list), it means I can feel a bit better should someone steal something and use it. I did my part so to speak. This topic has been gone over before (so not looking to start that). I don't have to do it. I choose to do it.

Besides, now all my STUFF is in one place...LOL

It looks roomy. You need to fill it up.

I just KNEW you would say that...LOL

I actually have two more handguns. Bersa Thunder 380 and Ruger 22/45...but if I buy anymore ...I will be living in that closet as I will be wife banished

I DID get a new red dot sight for the AR. So now I have a scope for it and the red dot. Will test it Saturday and will write a review then...lets see what a $29 red dot sight can do...

Nice looking setup. Way too much factory ammo. Need to get started reloading so you can fill it up with tubs of reloads.

Stupid question...where are the hinges to the door? Are they outside it or are the 'front door' style piano hinge?

And I'd add one of those pry resistant metal ends to the door.

I like the concept. I went with 'cabinet within a closet' myself. Would really like to convert a walk-in closet

that's a good point.

regardless of well secure the locking method, most doors have very simple hinge pins that can be removed with a screwdriver or a large pocketknife with very little effort. see about replacing the hinges with those that have non-removeable hinge pins.
