The above would do for a temporary storage but due to exterme humid weather conditions in our part of the world, these racks would be a nightmare for our firearms.

I once saw a gun collection behind jail-wala darwaza and big heavy padlock on it. Its good to show to people that you have so and so guns but at the same time guests cant touch them.

Nice idea, but for display purpose in dust and humity free environments only. I usually wrap up my guns to avoid exposure to dust and air to minimize the risk of rusting.

Nice post Khan Sahib.....Could you find some with concealed cabinet types...Like a normal bookshelf in front and a locked gun cabinet behind it.

You can get a wall safe with electronic keypad. It'd just be for a couple of handguns though. It doesn't show on the other side and on the front it protrudes by about 1.5 inches so you have to hang a picture or put something in front.

@Ka_Khan

Khan bhai i'm sure any local carpenter can make a good rack/cabinet. provided that you explain your requirements to him in a language/terms/conditions/variables that he understands. if you can conquer this step, getting a good gun rack/cabinet is easy as breathing.

I prefer cabinets over racks as cabinet offer protection against dust. plus you can always lock them to restrict unwanted access.

I got into making (literally) gun cabinets cause I couldn't explain what I wanted to a carpenter. so I thought why not myself. Initially it was just for me, then sorta word got around and did one project for a friend and then a few for some of his friends (always hated that part). here is the picture of a recent (unfinished) project. build right in the middle of my study. note: carpet is removed cause wood working makes one hell of a mess.

http://i998.photobucket.com/albums/af103/12gauge-pakguns/DSC00760.jpg

DESCRIPTION: 8-gun cabinet, separate bottom cabinet for storing accessories and stuff, sliding glass panels for space saving, rubber molded gun rests, all sides/panels solid 0.75 inch thick sheesham plywood, no sissy construction, solid wood skirting/feet for better stability, solid wood stiffeners under each panel. rubber rests to cushion glass panels. total cost to finish: 6,000 (estimated). currently i've spent around 4,800.

next to go: glass to be sand blasted with some kinda design, i'm still thinking on that. metal sheet engraved with some good quote to be fitted on the crown of the cabinet, still thinking on that. and finally yellow spot lights. u'll be surprised how cool guns look under a yellow light. infact this time i'm thinking instead of spot light I should use something which can give even angular shadows. so lets see.

Regards.

Hi 12guage,

Sir could you give a lil more detail on the glass used (thickness) and the rubber molded gun rest, what kinda mold is it?
Close up pictures would also help.

no problem buddy. well......the glass is ordinary glass (I know laminated glass is definitely a better option) of 5mm thickness. whereas the gun rest is basically carved out of wood and the surface which actually touches the gun has rubber molding. how? well...a very ingenious/inexpensive solution came to me while I was making my last gun cabinet. I just cut a bicycle tube in half, then dissected it right in the middle sorta like you do to a frog to see its internal organs. afterwards the dissected tube was slipped on the wooden gun rest with a little bit of glue so it doesn't slip off.

Thanks 12guage..

Actually i hav gotten one made inside my wall to wall wardrobe, having similar grooves carved out of wood. And i was like the surface is kinda hard thou it has been refined and polished. But i guess i gotta apply some sorta rubber moulding. What i had in my mind was the rubber lining that is normally seen on the edges in computer trolleys. But i think i can try this tube too...

hey! thats a great idea. I didn't thought of that otherwise would have definitely tried it out. now I know why they say two heads are better than one. :)

however, the bicyble tube thingy works great too, fits the wooden gun rest like a glove and provides ample cushion and resistance to the gun metal to prevent slippage.

A good option is the Safewell Gunsafe. there are several models and sizes available at Tayabally in Karachi.

@ Naveed_pk

Very nice. You should install some support for the guns in rack to keep them upright, otherwise they will fall on each other

Naveed_pk
09-03-2010, 11:05 AM
@Nabeel .. They will stay upright .. The butstock is a little down in the wood and its very firm .. No need for any other support

Salahuddin Ayubi
09-03-2010, 11:05 AM
Very nice. :)

I also have plans to have one made for me, which could accommodate upto 5 rifles and 5 handguns with separate sections for ammo and accessories storage. Has to have a lock on it too.

Any idea where (on the net) I would find ideas for such a cabinet which I can have made locally.

Naveed_pk
09-03-2010, 11:10 AM
SA, bro no need to find on the net , Just take the measurement of where u want to make it .The Carpenter will figure u out the structure make slightly changes of ure choice . Just as mine u will see corner where i had put the Ammo .. Its 8" size .. u can put also a handgun on a stand .. and also the lock is installed too

@Ka_khan ... Thanks a lot ... One wood Sheet @1500 rs , Mirror work 3000 rs , Labour 700, Miscellaneous stuff 1000 rs .. Total 6200 rs .. Ka_khan bro i need the stands for the placement of handhuns .. I will get them in a day or two and then it will be placed .. A little more work .. then I will update the Pics Insha Allah .. :)

Ka_Khan
09-03-2010, 05:27 PM
Naveed just got an idea.You could attach clips for the Handguns at the background of your guns in this cabinet.You could hang them :)

Naveed_pk
09-03-2010, 05:30 PM
Hmmm Good idea :) .. Thanks Ka_khan bro .. I will do that .. I think the corners in the shotgun section it can be hanged .. i have only 2 hanguns and both can fit on each corner ...

@Naveed: (sorry for missing this good thing for the last few days)

Brother... Nice Work ... Mashallah its really looking awesome and is really a good idea of using Mirrors along with wood. Brother I have another idea for your this rack.... Hope you will like my idea.... Just installed two small spot lights at the top of your rack (inside) one is top of the shotgun section and 2nd one on the top of storage section... this will add some great light effects inside your rack because you already have mirror compartments so light will go through from it and will lighten your entire rack ...... ;)

There are two ways of doing this ..... (Installing spot lights) one is drilling the top, make a hole of spot light and install the light in it. see below

http://s3.postimage.org/v3hwS.jpg (http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=Pqv3hwS)


Second and much easier way get that spot light that can be hanged/screwed and installed them on the top of each corner left and right ... see below

http://s4.postimage.org/ivArr.jpg (http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=aVivArr)



Best of Luck

@Lionheart the idea was also in my mind ... but i dropped it due to low space in the rack as on the top its no space ...and on the left right i am going to hang the pistols .. will update the pic with slight modifcations .. and ure idea is also in my mind .. thanks
