Default Closet firearms enthusiast

image-818286975.jpg

Basement of my new house is just too humid, had to find a nice dry spot. I'm not a clothes-horse so made good use of the closet

I pointed out to the Mrs. that there are spaces available for 2 additional long guns.......

(My wish list is long)

Looks like room for an AR and some form of lever rifle.

I am thinking a carbine/lever action for sure (open sights), not sure about an AR if I do it has to be .308

That might just be the best use of closet space I've ever seen.

Thats how my collection started also, untill I didnt feel right with all the stuff behind just a wooden door. And I had to cave in and buy a gun cabinet. Then I figured I had to much invested in firearms to just keep them in a thin metal box. So I had to purchase an actual safe, and its well worth the investment in keeping my firearms safe.

Nice rack !

You might be on this already, but pad out the cut outs for the barrel to prevent friction marks on your barrel. It happened to me .

AND, I recommend atleast putting a locking door knob on the closet door!
