Just wanna post some pics....

I bought this gun rack from a guy over on the AKfiles. I think it's AWESOME.
This is only a small portion of my collection & I know it doesn't even come close to Paco's or Hansel's collections, but it's mine & I'm proud of it.

No shame in any of that! Very nice setup! Are those AK pistol grips as holding studs?

Yup, AK grips holding the rifles.

I love seeing collections! Thanks for that!

I plan on my 40th birthday, to gather up every gun I own, and lay them in my yard to take one picture of them all with a drone. I really want to just see them all laid out.

Hi,

Nice job, nice collection.

Every collection starts with one item.
So, you are half way i see
Keep up the good work. Skip the el cheapo's, go for the 100% items only.
After all these years i'm regretting to have bought everything i saw.
Be selective like you do now.

Job well done!
Paco

I have seen those racks advertised and I have to say they look a lot better than I thought they would. I always envisioned them being a bit more gaudy, similar to the style made with deer hooves.



Can you post up contact info for the seller? The AK racks, not the abomination above!
