Good news Zack! I know we discussed this and I'm glad to hear it's happening. Now go ping ping!

Somewhere I have pictures of a toilet that was assaulted by a Mini 14 and an AR15. It was mainly the Mini 14 because the AR jammed on the third round! I had the camera on a tripod with an autowinder. This was a film camera so a long time ago. I will try and find them. They bring all new meaning to "shooting the shitter."

Ah yes, the 10-22. Great rifles. I picked one up back in the 80's and it must have been a special model. I think they called it a Sporter model? It doesn't have the barrel band and it's stock has some checkering.

Hi Rick,
Would you mind sharing some info on the top rifle? Similar to you and your guy, that thing is cool and something both my youngster and I could enjoy, thus I wouldnít mind building something similar.
Many thanks, Corey

So, does anyone here use any "tactical furniture"? If so, whose did you get and how do you like it? Trying to find something for the bedside Mossberg 12ga....

Knoxx recoil reduction stock.... OEM on a Remington 870.

https://www.brownells.com/shotgun-parts/stock-fore nd-parts/buttstocks/mossberg-500-knoxx-specops-gen iii-buttstock-prod103578.aspx

Mixed emotions, honestly. If you go for a tight cheek weld, it slaps you in the face pretty good, if you are shooting "squared up tactical" then not bad. Mine is the now discontinued first gen, and they claim the 3rd gen is better for cheek slap.

Also, it's an AR style collapsible butt, so ugly as sin, ( opinions will vary ) but a decent rubber butt pad.

The total recoil impulse to the Shoulder is, by Laws Of Physics, the same, in total, but the spring stretches the time out so a 12 ga. slug feels more like a 20.

Try before you buy. You might hate, or like.

The only other "tacticool" shotgun stuff I've got is an old Lasermax light/laser, on the same shotgun. It's a brick, heavy and blocky, but also pretty much a solid chunk of metal and so far, indestructible. Also discontinued... and that's fine, since newer versions are much lighter, sleeker, and with long battery life.

I really think a flashlight is a Must on a home defense shotgun. I've read all sorts of advice of how to hold a flashlight and gun at the same time, and unless you are a police or military guy who can practice, AND are carrying gun & light on your web gear, it's all hypothetical and unlikely. A Gun Mounted Light is a Good Thing.

The laser is icing on that cake. Mine was easy to sight in, and works for slugs & shot at under 50 yards. I'm a big fan of lasers as a psychological force multiplier as well as an aiming/training tool. I don't count on a red dot to change an attacker's mind, ( or the threat of a gun, which is Not a Magic wand ) but it does happen, and that's a bonus if it does.

As to where I buy my toys? Midway USA, or Brownells, usually. Mack's Prairie Wings also has a decent selection and I've had good experience with them.

All good advice (I do carry a laser on my EDC)...but I'm curious about FURNITURE. Such as the 1242 shelf on tacticalwalls.com

Curious if anyone uses anything like that around the house...for concealment with easy access.

I avoid tactical furniture. To me it all screams, "Here's the guns!".

Modify existing furniture to fit your needs. A box shelf built into the wall with art work hanging in front of it. I choose the spots behind existing art already on the wall. Extra magnets in the frames work wonders. I like removing arm rest tops and using velcro to re-attach them with holsters mounted to their undersides. Hinged tops on wooden furniture conceal secret compartments. Get an old sewing cabinet to use as a night stand. They usually have a hinged top with a compartment above the top drawer. False bottoms in drawers are easy to make. Use plain tan wrapping paper to line the drawers and hide the false bottom. If you pull out a drawer, there is often enough room to attach a holster to the outside rear of it. You can hide stuff just under a granite top on furniture. False bottoms under sinks, or kick boards that are held in place with magnets. My favorite if you get the joints right is a floor board that has a secret latch. A well planned secret room is the safest if you tell no one it is there.

I had a Neon with a holster under the driver's door arm rest. The pad was velcroed down. I traded it in without telling it was there. I would put money down that it went to the junk yard with the next owner never knowing it was there. I did remove the pistol.

I will mention a great place for a rifle rack that I don't use. Behind the oven! My stove is on rollers and would make it easy to access. Attics are only good for storing guns while on vacation. Long term storage up there will cause problems with lubricants. For a similar reason I avoid outside walls.

A thin compartment can be hand tooled into the top of doors if they are solid. And are a piece of cake to put in hollow core doors.

I rate bedroom hiding as worst location and bathroom as best. This is from my personal experiences with thieves.

I have my EDC on my person just about anytime I'm awake. It's that comfortable and unobtrusive...why not?

My main goal for the bedroom is "bump in the night" situations when I'm in bed, and my EDC is in the safe (which is 1/2" bolted through the oak flooring, through the subflooring, and into 4x4 braces under the flooring). Currently, the Mossberg simply leans against the wall next to the headboard. I like the idea of concealment not just to keep it away from prying eyes (I really don't expect intruders in my house, given the area I live in), but mainly to keep it clean. But, still have quick access if needed (again, I don't expect to have people in my house uninvited...but, I don't expect to have to use my EDC either - doesn't mean I don't want to be prepared that ONE time I need it!).

Tactical furniture doesn't have to look tactical. I'm a hidden-in-plain-sight kind of guy. I use something like this:
https://www.chunkyshelves.com

RFID key card to open it quickly but secure enough for curious guests and thats about it. It is NOT supposed to be a safe.
It's better than under the bed: )

IMO - and I LOVE our flag, don't get me wrong - anything that's got the current trend of a flag made of wood, or barnwood, or...whatever? Screams "I'm hiding a gun". Ditto anything with DTOM or Molon Labe. Just too...obvious.

I'm looking at one of these for over the headboard:

https://tacticalwalls.com/product/1242-top-locking -shelf/

Just looks...normal.

I've got a Plinkster.
It's one of my favorite rifles.
But nothing special, just love shooting it.

When I was in 9th grade, we had to pass Hunter's Safety, and Rifle Maintenance, before we could go to 10th grade.
The only controversy was when one kid didn't have a gun, all the Dad's pitched in and bought her one.

WTF is that thing on the right. That would give me nightmares, not to mention my child.

We're screwed if we cannot get control of what is being taught to our kids. Just witness all the petulant little brats that have been running around throwing a temper tantrum for the past 6 months. Or even worse, the ones that have been throwing hissy fits ever since Trump was elected. This is a by product of an awful education system and a absentee parenting.

...And a legal system that allows children to SUE parents, for disciplining them.

It's a CHILD, not a tax writeoff!
