FWIW, I have this really cool old gun I inherited from my dad...chambered in .22 short, it still functions. I'd LOVE to hang this little gem over the fireplace, but bottom line is, it works. Therefore, I'd be putting myself at risk legally.





That is cool as hell! I'd have that gun displayed so I could enjoy it.

I feel that we're playing right into the gun grabber's hands. They have us scared to even display our own property, in our own homes. That's a sad state of affairs.

I could not agree more. It's truly a shame what liberal free-thinkers have done to this country and our proud heritage.
The US has been founded on, built on, and defended by our love affair with the gun. I fear the inmates are now running the asylum and they are making us the bad guys because we are intelligent enough not to buy into the idea if we all sing Kumbaya and have a big group hug, that we can all get along and dance with fuzzy puppies, rainbows, and singing birdies.
Although it's "only Hollyweird", I'm often struck watching old westerns such as Gunsmoke at the sporatic, senseless and vicious cruelty dispensed at random on decent individuals by animals with guns. Whether TV fantasy or not, in actuality it probably happened that way, and often. Many times the solitary farmer and his family had only the family gun to defend themselves and family with in times of crisis. Has it really only taken a generation for so many to be duped into thinking mankind has changed for the better?

In California, minors or persons prohibited from possessing firearms who are legally on the premises are the real risk for the gun owner.  Absent those, no criminal liability will attach.  Anyway, the statutes here refer to “loaded firearms”.

Shotgun, check out Cal. Penal Code §§ 25100, 25105.  Those will give you a little guidance.

Sorry fellas, dredging up an old topic here. But I thought this was the perfect place for this.

I decided to get my pistols out of the darkness and let them enjoy some air. So I made this display today for them. It keeps all my pistols and accoutrements in one place, and I can get all touchy feely with them any time I want. Plus, even if I'm not fondling them every day, I can at least look at them and enjoy them.




I know some folks will probably say, I'm being irresponsible by putting them out on display. But my kids know about guns. They're not curious about them to the point of sneaking in to play with them. They know that all they have to do is ask, and they can hold, touch and look at whatever they want. We don't generally have company, except for my aged parents on occasion. I think they're perfectly safe out in the open.

I don't display mine anymore since I had 15 handguns stolen several years ago.

That’s a nice rack, Shotgun.  Looking good.  I hope that your setup is not visible through a window.  Word gets around pretty fast among some types.  As is known, many thieves have scouts out working on commission.  Scouts on the front end and a reliable fence with dope or cash money after the fact. 

For several hundred years burglary and grand larceny were common law felonies - hanging offences.  Not surprisingly, in the old days, per capita, there were many fewer burglars and rip-off artists.  It useta was that crime suppression was just a simple arithmetic proposition: subtraction. 

I rotate my repro old timey pistols and just keep one or two sitting out on an antique desk or sideboard.  Fun to come by and handle, point, shoot an imaginary bad guy and just appreciate.  If I kept any more than that out at a time it would be a case of sensory overload. 

Tljack - my 2˘ is hang that beauty anywhere that can’t be seen from the exterior and work out any extraneous details as they may come along.  It’s your rifle and your home - be careful and then do absolutely whatever you care to do.

Thanks G Dog. No worries about the window. It's not visible from anywhere outside the house. Only one who can see it is me. I totally agree with keeping things away from prying eyes. Because people do look in windows for targets of opportunity.

Agreed; nice show 'n' tell, Dave.
Just be careful and instruct young'ns to not tell any friends or girlfriends, etc about your guns. Word travels fast on the street

It was my step daughters husband at the time that stole mine when he ran out on her.

I don't leave anything out in the open anymore. People see and tell. To much temptation.

Liability can depend on where you live. Not having a gun locked up and then stolen can open you up for more liability in Massachusetts than Alabama. Different courts, and prosecutors, can view the same event differently
