Default Cheap Closet Storage

Well it was a nasty day outside so my father and I decided to start on the gun closet we had been talking about making. First we emptied all the stuff out of the closet, Talk about a tedious task.

This is where we are at now.

Yup those are handgun cases, and there is three more above those. We have been thinking about getting a handgun safe, still looking around to see what will be the most useful. Currently we have a deadbolt on the door, maybe we will incorporate a locking bar for the guns.

I may be over thinking it, i tend to go for overkill. Either way the closet looks great!

You call that "cheap closet storage"...
I call it... AN ARSENAL!

Maybe a strip of wood towards the bottom with a locking devise of sorts. You could pad something to wrap around the stock. If it's all connected they would have to rip everything out of the all to take it which wouldn't be the easiest task. Either that or a saws all.

Very nice work though.
