Today's steal...

My boomstick collection has outgrown my safe, so I've been thinking of getting one of those $150 cabinets since I can't really spring for another safe right now, what with the way my cash is hemorraging because of the move/remodeling etc...

Well, this morning on Craigs List, I found a decorative cabinet there that was going for $50... gave the guy a call and drove out to check it out (he's about 60 miles from the valley, a 60 mile gauntlet that contains some of the worst traffic on the planet). I liked it, so I bought it. It shall be a nice home for my prettier guns. Not nearly as secure as a safe, of course, but kid-proof with the locks, plus I like the idea of having a display, even though it's gone out of style somewhat...

Here's my new acquisition:

Very nice. I wanted one of those for years but decided my old milsurp rifles were too ugly to be on display :)

It is very nice, I just hope you don't regret it when your guns disappear. I've been riped off before and now a Browning stands in the basement and only close family see them.

I haven't yet decided where I'm going to put it, but it won't be in our family rooms. Most likely in my bedroom or one of our garages. I guess that's why they've gone out of style then, Mushy? Not very secure?

Hang trends - I think that looks nice. A well-stocked gun cabinet never goes out of style!
