Built in Gun Cabinet

Recommended Posts

mskyfshntchr

We recently purchased a different house and need to put in a gun cabinet.

I have a closet that has some extra room and I am going to build it into that. There will be a coat rack in front of it. I have room to make it 1' deep and the size of the closet, which is about 4' wide and 7' tall.

I want to build it as concealed as possible. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on a concealed lock system so if someone was to look behind the jackets, it would look like the wall. It could be something you designed or something I can buy.

Also, if you have any other tips for me that you have found useful in your gun cabinet.

Thanks!

Make sure the back of your cabinet is not an exterior wall, you will have moisture problems.

Have you considered a gun safe instead? You should be able find the right size to fit in your closet, and you can save money on your homeowners insurance policy which will pay for the safe in a few years. Some are also fireproof and you won't have to worry about children getting into it when your not around.

Just my .02:

I purchased a safe 5 years ago and it has been a great investment. Not only does it keep my "tools" safe, it also serves as a safe deposit box. I keep passports, Social Security Cards, checks, extra cash (if there is such a thing), and any other important documents you want to keep from fire or others. Liberty used to make a safe door that could be used in a "built-in" safe. Hope this helps.

I agree with you fishwithteeth. It also helps with getting the better-half to consent to the purchase when she knows that some of her valuables like jewlery will also be protected. liberty and browning are top of the line and offer combination storage areas and gun shelving.

My current gun safe is too small. I never thought about playing the wife card for a gun safe. I know that we have enough stuff like licenses, sscards, savings bonds, etc, that we could use a safe. THanks for the ideas.

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams.

      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
