weapon displays

19 posts in this topic

Hey guys as I get more equipment and guns Id like to display them on a wall. Any of you guys do this and if so any help/advice I did a quick Google search at work on my break and didn't really find much other than hugely expensive army ones for loads of guns.

 

Thanks in advance.

large(ish) metal coat hooks

 

 

I was thinking of using something like that or i could get hold of one of them boards where you mount hooks I'm just not sure whether they will hold the weight?

Thanks a lot I'm guessing you got that custom built?

 

and I was thinking of displaying my guns along a wall if you get what I mean after looking at how much space I have available in the room I'd be using I don't think it would be a smart move to go with something so big. The best way for me to describe what I'd like to go for would be the weapon racks they use in films just without the flashy coming out of a hidden panel type thing.

haha, im watching that now lol.

I suppose you could just get some shelving rack things like that

 

That's what I was thinking then using that the black protective material they use in the airport security cases (don't know the name of it) then installing some Blue LED's in the shelf spacers If I can pull it off I think it will look really good.

 

The stuff in here to clear it up for you guys: http://www.wildhunter.eu/images/gun_case.jpg
