Jason they are piled everywhere, seriously LOL stack o guns here, stack o guns there... they seem to proliferate on their own after a while. If you don't buy junk guns, they will almost always go up in price.... I have guns that have doubled in price over a 5 to 8 year period...

Hell even common rifles like the Russian MN 91/30 that you could get for 69 each 5 years ago if you bought 5 or more are now going for 250 each.

Maybe we're hoarders? :whistle:

Very nice collection Husk! I can see that's taken a while to build and I can see why you'd want to play guns! ;)

Thanks
It's a work in progress, but I'm slowly gaining ground.
I have just about everything I need, got the bases covered, ARs, AKs, Concealed carry, range toys, etc.
Now I just buy stuff that looks interesting. :mrgreen:

I have a friend that hoards guns, some 50 years old that haven't ever been fired. I've probably seen 60 of them and he said I've only seen 20% of them.

He brings a surprise every time we go to the range. I think my favorite so far was the Luger, although the Browning High Power was up there. Last week was a P38.

He was the town barber for 25 years and shot skeet for years, was one of the top in the region. I've never seen a $10,000+ shotgun till he showed me one.

I wonder what he'll bring next week?

A guy who runs a local tavern claims to have over 400 guns, and an old farmer I know used to have 600+ until he retired and moved to town.
He also owned 2 pawn shops in Texas, so he would send the ones he was tired of down there to sell.

All you really need is some storage
This is several years old, now I have 8 steel cabinets and a wood one

Holy crap that's a bunch of guns!!
Are the steel cabinets made by Stack-On?
They seem to be pretty popular and they have lots of different sizes.

I've looked at a safe or three and those things cost thousands of dollars and weigh 10,000 pounds...
My gun "office" is downstairs - I can't imagine hauling a safe down the steps and down a hallway and around a corner and into a room.
If a person broke into my house, It's take him 1/2 an hour just to figure out where the guns are...
And then have to fight through the cardboard and packing I have strewn about.
Then be disappointed because there might be no goodies to steal - or some not worth stealing. :(

It helps that I can look out the window at work and see my house from work.
The SIL checked with his laser range-finder and it's like 73 yards or something like that from my window at work to my front deck.
I could about shoot my .380 that far!!

Anyway, I bought a Stack-On steel cabinet that locks. I also screwed the bitch to the wall and put lights in it.
It won't stop a determined thief - but it keeps the kids out and meets the legal requirement to be a gun dealer.

I rarely have more than couple thousand dollars worth of guns on-hand anyway - and sometimes none!!

I don't think I'll ever end up with 150 or 175 guns - I think 8 or 10 would cover about everything I'd like to have. :D

I've seen musicians like this - they collect dozens of guitars.
I've had the same guitar since the late 80's. Ive bought 2 others - sold one and kept one.
My wife bought me one years ago I keep by my chair.
So after 35 years of playing the guitar - I own three of them

Same thing with my Harley.
My brother goes through motorcycles like I do toilet paper...
He just bought another one yesterday - 2008 KLX-650 Kawasaki!!

I just feel too guilty spending that kind of money on myself - as far as collecting most anything.
Hell - I agonized for a week or two trying to decide which .380 to get...
If I had 15 shotguns I wouldn't be able to decide which one to take trap-shooting!!

Some of mine are Stack On, some are Sentinel from Wal-Mart
Personally, I like the Sentinel better.
You are lucky not to have so many guns around.
I can never decide what I want to shoot, ans storage is getting to be a problem
I really need another cabinet

I need to get an actual gun cabinet. I have an old wardrobe that I converted.

You might have to build on an addition to the house.
A big secure room just for gun storage!! :D

There you go Husker!! Concrete is tough to beat - Especially if its underground like that in the basement.
The door is always the weak link...
Some kinda super-latch thats like in those high-dollar safe's would be good!!
Where theres bars all around the perimeter that stick out...

Maybe bury one of those shipping containers like the preppers do!!
