Custom lockable Gun cupboard

Recommended Posts

Hey chaps,

 

I just wondered how all you fine folk store your grown up toys when at home?

Having a nagging wife who's not a huge fan of having RIF indoors and two young children I'm in the process of making a custom lockable cupboard to fit in my utility room.

 

Just curious to see how everyone else manages it and if anyone else would be interested in one?

A mate of mine being a chippie has made a weapons & kit cupboard out of MDF & has done it a way that it blends in with all the furniture

 

He's done it in an alcove and has disguised the front as a normal display cupboard so you can't see any evidence of the alcove

 

As I don't have the room in my bedroom, I've got 2 cupboards with a work bench between them, all the small items go under the lowest drawer in both cupboards & rifles, bags & other large items are under my bed so I have it on wheels to roll out

Guns: In hard cases or boxes under the bed... Or in bits on my work desk.

 

Gear: Has it's own dedicated set of drawers and shelf in my wardrobe.

 

Ghillie Suit: In the shed for a very good reason.

Cupboard above the stairs in the spare room has a lock. So guns go in their bags and my plate carrier in there. If I had kids and I no longer had a spare room for office/library/armoury I would build a lockable container in my shed that would be screwed to the wall or I have ideas for a box that would fit under the bed.

 

I have a chest of drawers that contains most of the rest of my stuff, ammo, radios spare pouches.

I've got kids but they know not to touch any of it without me present

 

My 3 year old daughter loves pulling the trigger on my rifles, she knows where the safety catch is, how to use it & pull the trigger so I say bang when she does :)

All my kids are grown up so don't have problems with them, eldest being 29 to youngest being 18 so I'm safe from that, but guns kept in a gun case and kit like others either in a wardrobe or a large kit bag for helmet gloves rig gas ammo etc

That looks epic tbh! Looks very discreet so no need to worry about people getting funny about it.
