Rifle Hangers

 Saw this on ENDORed Neck Rifle Hangers

Heh.  That's pretty good.  Simple and elegant solution for what to do with your ready ARs.  You know, that ones you might need right away.  The half dozen others stay in the gun safe.  But I do have that shoebox full of lowers NOT in the safe.  Hmph.  I need a new safe.  My closets are better served for clothes.  Not a passle of rifles and boxes of lowers. 

That's still a neat hanger that I may need.      


I never talked about the gunsmith's safe.  But he is no longer a gunsmith, so no worries about revealing anything to possible thieves.  It was just a cage.  Looks like an Army Armorers cage.  With a good solid lock.  But only that.  It was certainly pickable.  And there was hunderds of guns and boxes of dissassembled guns, and half built guns and still broken guns.  Stealing for easy resale?  Kinda iffy.  But the cage wasn't the only security consideration, naturally.  Extensive cameras and alarms and such, some connected to the power and data lines, some not and still phoning home.  Layers of security!  Like winter clothing.  Layers.  

He did all that not just for his ownself.  The ATF had minimum standards and suggestions for FFLs, sure.  Behoovable info.  

Dreams of being a gunsmith, if I was crazy enough and talented enough to try I might hunt around for an old bank.  Lots of them have still working walk-in vaults, so that is fun.  Stout exterior doors.  And an appropriate amount of internal space for the shop and counter.  A lotta light comes in from window in older banks.  Gunsmith in style and comfort.

You don’t want that bank. It’ll wash away the next time Main Street gets a torrential rain.

I know a dealer who used to have a bank building for those reasons.

I say used to, because he rented the apartments upstairs as Section 8... and one of his tenants caused a fire that burnt the place down...
