Show us your Toys, as in Guns / Man Cave

So I loved the post that LarryW made about the video "I Love Guns", so it got me thinking. How about a thread with photos of your guns, reloading benches, Gun related man caves. So here goes..

I took some photos of one side of my basement, which I converted into my gun shop. Built the reloading bench out of solid Oak slabs, and made dove-tail inserts so I can swap out reloaders, swaggers, etc. If anyone likes it, I have plans on how to make it. I made it after getting sick of using old doors, converted desks, etc.

I also took some photos of my Gun Safe, with some of my toys.. Can you tell I am a true 18B at heart?

It only let me upload the reloading bench photos, so I will attach Guns in next post

Nice man cave, BTW.

I think it is great as a "man cave" pics thread.

There is something incongruous about the concept of man cave and the level of neatness displayed.

I agree with Buck's neatness as it pertains to weapons of death, but I bet the rest of his place looks like a scatter grenade went off.

My cave does...

By the way 'incongruous' is a great word, well done.

I gotta get off my dead a$$. My basement is filled with plastic tubs full of ex-wifes yarn and country craft crap, old moldy Christmas decorations (as my son says "more than any straight man should have"), and boxes of clothes that homeless people wouldn't wear. Yeah, a grenade could go off down there and do a sh*&load of improvements! I gotta get off my dead a$$...

This is funny, should be hung on the wall of all Mancaves

LarryW, not sure but that might definately be a violation for a bachelor, unless of course you like to knit, and wear womens clothes. You might need to through a team party and have some of us over some day and drag all that crap out... I bet it would make for a hell of a bonfire....lol.

I found this poster which I thought was hilarious, you can print it out, and hang it on your man cave wall. Warning, if you're married you might get prepared for some couch time if she reads this.

I might need a ruling on this, but it sounds more like a "homo cave".

You need to get rid of that crap and fill the space up with unused sports and athletic gear, dead electronics, and of course, guns and ammo.

More Man Cave Guidelines...

These are some things you can replace the yarn and womens clothes with...

OK, things men need, and are allowed in the Man Cave.

- Humidor
- Poker table
- The heads of some dead animals mounted on the wall (at least 3, with one of them being a bison)
- A foot rest the length of the bar, made up from the barrels of Gatling guns and old pieces of steel from WWII Battleships
- A picture of THE DUKE behind the bar, which will be toasted to NIGHTLY. If you have to ask who THE DUKE is, get out of the Man Cave now!
- A picture of Sinatra across from the bar, perferrably in a plaid hat.
- a shelf next to every urinal where we can rest our beer mugs when in use
- a pool table, with only one working light bulb above it
- Red Grange's leather football helmet.
- The bat Babe Ruth used when he "called his shot"

Gents, other items needed?

Buck

You get a temporary "permit for posession" until you can organize a "get her out of my life" party. With enough buddys and a pre-clean to make sure none of your stuff is mixed in with the junk, you should be able to get rid of it in a couple hours. It'll only cost beer and pizza, will restore your "man status", and will give you much needed space to tear down the Harley motor in the basement. Otherwise the next female to take up residence will adopt it as "hers" and start adding to the crap. (Just make sure the dump is open during party hours.)

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
