My problem is, I like most of my guns, but I'm at the point I need to do something.
I have 5 steel gun cabinets stuffed with firearms, one bedroom has a bed full, in the dining room is a wood gun cabinet with long guns on top and handguns underneath. The dining room table usually has 4 or 5 pistols laying on it, long guns on slings hanging from the chairs, every corner seems to have a shotgun in it.
I have one under my pillow, one in the car, one in the night stand, 4 long guns and a C&B revolver on the couch.
Let's not even talk about air guns.
I have 2 AK's in 7.62x39 and a Saiga in .223. I have a Windham AR, and a Kel Tec SU16, all in .223, oh, and a Mini-14. I've got 9mm carbines, HI Point, Kel Tec, Ruger, 2 Winchester lever guns in 30-30 and one in .22, 2 or 3 Winchester shotguns, a couple 3 or so more .22 Winchesters, Marlin, Mossberg, Romanian, WWF, I don't even know what .22s I have...(did I mention I have three 10-22s?)
I have piles of .22 handguns, revolvers, pistols, single shots, Bersa, Walther, Ruger, S&W, H&R, I don't know what all.
Speaking of S&W, I also collect those, got some of my dad's, got some I bought, J-N frames, semi's, not a lot, but probably 8 or 10, not sure.
There's more....
Am I a hoarder? :wow: :scared:

^Sounds familiar, except that I bought a big safe to go with my little safe and got rid of the steel cabinets. I can barely get by and know I have stuff I'll never use again.^^

This one is 75" tall:

As always, the size of your accumulation grows to overwhelm the available space.

My rule of thumb is that I want to be able to throw everything in the cars and drive off with it back to the family farm.
This precludes having a lot of toyz.

Thanks. It actually is. We went shopping for the biggest safe that we could fit in the available space and this one was a good value -- turns out it was built in China. How the hell can you make something as heavy as a safe in China and then ship it all the way to the USA cheaper than Americans can make it?

Slave labor?

Here's the inside the way it arrived:

I took the shelves out of the bottom part and hang handguns & magazines on the door.

It's surprising how much you can fit into something as small as this:

Of course, if you're a guy like 'Husker' you need something larger:

And if it's a bug out situation a U haul truck will blow right through stuff that would stop your family sedan cold.
