Very nice lighting of your safe.. That's one thing I need to do myself, I'll have to power mine off of batteries.. I'll probably have many questions as I proceed..


Impressive armory you have!

I don't know how long. I guess 40 years or so. One of the shotguns is a single shot Stevens my grandfather gave me when I was around 12. I have let a few guns go over the years during hard times but not many. And as for my wife, she grew up in N.J. and had never been around guns till she hooked up with me. The collection doesn't bother her at all. In fact she has bought me quite a few of those guns. She collects Stangl pottery and I don't say a word when she buys more and we have a storage building full of it.

In the interest of full disclosure, here are five more that for one reason or another wasn't in the vault when the pictures were taken.

Put those LED tape lights along the end of each shelf, will give it a cool new look and illuminate everything properly. That's an awesome set up though, most people with that many I just see make a pile of their guns instead of organizing them. I am jealous haha
