Gun Cabinet

Recommended Posts

bklimek

I would like to make my own gun cabinet. I am looking to make a 10 barrel gun cabinet. Does anybody know where I could get my hands on some plans or designs? I have googled this but couldn't find anything. Only found 8 or 6 barrel gun cabinets.

Thanks,

Butch

I'am a cabinetmaker. buildt lots of them, 1st idea is just build the cabinet you saw or liked by making it wider by 2 guns. 2nd idea, draw out a full size pattern of the gun butts or how you want them stand or space in the cabinet, then you can work out all your other measurements. there are lots of pics our there, good luck.

i am accually making one in my woods class. it is only a 6 barrel, but it is a very nice pattern. all you would have to do is alter the plans a little and make it a hair wider. just a thought. email me if you would like a link to the web site i got the plans from. (Contact US Regarding This Word)

Butch, you look like a nice young man and I say good luck in building you gun cabinet. I think if you ask your local High School Industrial Arts teacher they might be able to help you find a plan.

Several years ago my daughter built, in high school, a 13 barrel gun cabinet out of Oak and gave it to me as a present. It is the most beautiful gun cabinet I've ever seen.

Not to discourage, but a note on caution. Displaying

our shooting irons in nice to look at wooden display

cases and cabinets, can be inviting some unwanted

safety concerns. Even the best-made wooden units are no match for the modern gun-safes. We as gun owners, should

do all we can to prevent misuse and accidents from

happening. Trigger locks can go a long way to help

against the accidental discharge incidents. There is a

lot of data supporting that in most cases, you are apt to getting them stolen, and having them end up in criminal's hands if you don't put them up and lock them

up in a safe.

tumbleweed i agree with you, i've built gun cabs for a very long time, glass only keeps honest people honest. if someone where to break in there going to steal the guns, if it is your kids tigger locks are great, but then you have a another problem. i use to sell lots of gun cabs at the mn. sports show, but slowly people started to buy gun safes and wooden cabs are bought by people that live farther away from high crime cities. men really want to show there guns and or just admire them through the glass, but with there investment, i hate to say it, the only way there safe is in a gun safe. as far as safety I only worry about my kids, criminals are just that, criminials.

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?

      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
