A work in progress...

Because there really isn't much room I can't in good conscience call it a "Man Cave" but it is my Gun room, I really love reading a book in there with all of my favorite rifles hanging on the walls around me.
Anyway please ignore the clutter on the desk. I took that pic very late last night & just wanted to get the pic, put the guns back in the safe & go to bed. It's clean now though

Edited to add, I'm waiting on a Rhodesian Flag & some more of the vintage Metal signs to decorate the walls with.

That is far out. My man cave is in the garage. It's got a heat pump and has all my stuff in it with no cars although I have space waiting for a 67 GTO that will never be filled. I like sometimes to open up the safe and keep it open to fondle my humble collection.

You definitely need a "Be A Man Amongst Men" poster to hang up in there!

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Nice.

Woefully in need of some ammo cans though. Nothing crazy, but a few brown SA two man lift cans in the corner, with a few F4 cans stacked on top, would really set the ambiance.

Looks pretty man-cavish. Does need a comfy chair and something to put your feet up on (stack of ammo cans?) though.

That looks absolutely awesome NSS- you know I’m a fan of that wood-stocked Rhodie build.

I know brother
It truly pained me to have to pass on that R1 that FNfreak just sold in the MP.
I need one of those bad!!!

Good idea lockjaw, I have over 120 ammo cans, & a stack of 54r crate's in another room, the crates are over 6’ tall. I have plenty of Ausi F4 cans but never got the SA containers. Gonna have to start looking for some @ the next show

I have a buddy that is prohibited from owning firearms [long story] He has one heck of an Airsoft collection, when he told me the prices on them I almost fell over. Their not as expensive as some of my FAL's but their close to some of the Thumbhole Century guns that I bought years ago. Mine are all the real deal.

Cool brother, the ship that is known as Philadelphia has definitely SUNK!!!!
That bleeding heat Mayor [who I personally know] is a huge part of the problem.

Where's your Mancave Swag? Mini fridge, beer cooler, stereo, comfortable seating, dog bed, tin signs and posters? Looks a little sterile, unless you just moved in.

Very nice, every Gun Collector needs a place like that.

As far as Pilia. goes, yeah glad I moved out of that Dem cesspool a long time ago. Back in the day Frank Rizzo was the Man.

My Dad was a cop back in the Rizzo days, he’s got some stories.
He was at the 1st MOVE incident too.
I still have 2 of his black jacks that he was issued. One of them looks like it was used quite a bit.

LOL I bet...Had a good friend on the Force back then as well...lots of good stories.

BTW my Grandfather (Philly Cop) was the Guy who broke Frank in when he was
a rookie Cop. That's no B.S. when my Grandad passed away Mayor Rizzo was at the Funeral.

Nothing at all, they are always in the safe unless I'm home & have the time to go hang out in my "cave" which isn't often.
