Default My Reloading and Gun Room

figured i would put up some pics of my loading and work space. the table in the middle and the bench that the xl650 is on has holes drilled for the single stage rcbs press, primer tool, and primer swager.





opposite wall has the majority of cleaned sorted brass and odds and ends





the gun safe is in the next basement room over next to the freezer.

its on the shelf on the back wall. left of the shop vac second from the bottom. i only bolt it up to make small batches of 458winmag 50AE and sometimes 30-06

that room used to be a basement woodshop the previous owner setup. he left behind all the way cool workspaces. the green table i got off the trash burn pile at work before they torched it!! its as solid as it looks!! i think the top is solid oak or some other hard wood. if it wasnt already buggered up with gouges and holes i wouldnt have drilled my own. but i destroyed a drill bit drilling 6 holes for the single stage stuff

Something is just not right??????

There, I see it now.

No clutter, I have trouble seeing my floor. Better believe that those photos will not be seen by anyone in this house other than me. You trying to get me in the dog house?

the clutter is the rest of the house!! i take reloading serious. i dont like distractions when im handling gunpowder and primers

ive always had fears im a borderline hoarder at times. but the gun room is spotless.

Jon, that looks like a very nice and well organized space.

Every gun-man (or handy-man) should be so fortunate to have a nice work shop.

I am fortunate in that my wife allows gunsmithing and gun cleaning in the dining room! I have the garage if I need a vise or the basement for dirty work.

That's a beautiful setup Jon.
