    Ok folks
    Time to open the safe and dig deep!
    This is the thread to post pics of
    the stuff you haven’t seen for a while or forgot you even had. Post em here!

    Today as I was in the safe I came across some stuff I ain’t seen in years!
    From the days before I got into Semi Customs.
    It was some obscure stuff I was into in the early 90’s:o.o:
    My back in the day Les Bear top end build on a Norinco frame Franken build that was my attempt in building an action pistol.

    Not yet but maybe in a couple years, picked this baby out today and expect it to be delivered anytime in the next 60 days!!??? WTF? 60 days...oh the agony!
    They have some in stock so hopefully much sooner and then I can get started on that time capsule for a hunt down the road. All of my current safes wil fit inside this :happy: and be able to close the door :) 28x42x72 Liberty safe

    Great minds think alike. I have almost that exact same safe. I really need a second but the wife would kill me plus I’d have to hire a crane again to get it up to the 3rd floor. She’s about 1000lbs.(the safe not the wife).

    So I had this great idea once that I would build a compact bolt action gun with an off-the-shelf magazine setup and a 16" threaded barrel for a can host. Figured I'd stick a lower magnification scope on it, and use it at the 600-800 yard plates at my local range. Ordered all the parts, and assembled this:

    Was very proud of myself until the moment I realized I had this exact same idea five years ago, and dug this out from the back of my safe:

    Let us go down stairs to the vault where we may enjoy a beverage and examine firearms away from prying eyes. I had this built when the house was built. it is eight inch reinforced concrete with drywall on the inside. A steel fire door secures the contents from intruders.

    Proper drainage was installed by me to maintain the best environment for the joyous contents!

    A door? In the basement?

    20190405_175422.jpg
    The dissimilar keys worked flawlessly and the door swings open with some resistance due too the vacuum created inside. The hinges make a unique sound accompanied by the swoosh of the weather striping...Yes the contents are at the proper temperature and humidity.
    20190405_175607.jpg
    As the light is flipped on exposing some of the contents, a smile will form on your face as you recognize some old friends!

    Swinging to your left is like walking into a surprise party!
    20190405_175508.jpg
    Then in front of you are the wallflowers huddled together as if not to draw attention to themselves. Like the ladies at the Catholic girl's school they are sacrosanct....

    The gun cradles were purchased through the Ruger Website and the are on clearance with great prices for truly high quality gun racks! Get on it now...

    As you look around, you notice the boxes, then more boxes! What could they be but feed for these hungry beasties!
