How do you store your Remmy?
« on: July 02, 2011, 02:51:12 PM »
How do you store your Remmy? Lockbox? Gun Safe? Dresser drawer?
Mine is locked up in a pistol gun safe with the rest of the revolvers. I would love to have them out in a viewable display case, especially since I usually like to handle them on a daily basis, but 'out of sight, out of mind' is the watchword for thieves. Especially since I had a digital camera grow legs one day after a couple of my grown son's friends were over (back when he lived here and was going to local college) We never could prove definitively which one of the two took it, but they were alone in the room for several minutes while he was in the bathroom. I noticed the camera missing from the dock next to my computer minutes after they'd left and had been downloading photos shortly before they arrived. Trust no one, have no regrets. So, I have to keep them under lock & key.

at night they are on my dresser 3 feet from the bed during the day they are either laying on the coffee table or on the kitchen table, or living room and kitchen are one big room togather and the bedroom and bath are the only other rooms in our little cabin, so usually within reach is the best answer! {?|

Locked away wrapped in oil rags and sealed in air tight 20mm ammo cans along with the rest of my BP revolver collection except for the stainless steel one, I shoot that one most of the time so it's out in my regular vault.
Leave it as it is. The ages have been at work on it and man can only mar it.

Lately mine have mostly been on the arm of my couch where they're handy when I'm watching the tube or surfing. My safe is full & I need to get another one.
I reckon so

 I think I'll just keep them here  ;) I find great comfort in keeping them close, even tho the "hot" ones are cartidge guns (I don't "play" with those)
 On another thread here we've been talking about the dangers of sharing the woods with less-than-competent hunters. I wonder how many of the ones we're afraid of handle their weapons on a daily basis? I know the guy I share my deer woods with never fires a shot in the off season. I'm not worried about him for safety reasons but he sure misses a lot.
I reckon so

I usually have at least one within reaching distance, the other one nearby. At night, one on the floor beside the bed, sometimes one under a pillow. The problem is, I have only two...  (H^

I usually find myself "playing guns" every couple of days....partially to keep them cleaned and oiled, and partially because I like handling them. {L*
I'm more cautious handling the cartridge guns, accidents can & will happen, the BPs I know are safe after the complete strip & clean I give them after a range session!
There's just so much history and romance (yeah, I said romance!) in these old C&Bs.

Mine are all over in my den. I do keep the ammo away in the green OD steel ammo cans. I just like to look and touch mine. I do keep my den door locked when other( in-laws, nosey people) people come over.

CK,
    My wife and I are on our own,so for the most part my B/P weapons our in our bedroom.I have three modern guns, a S&W semi .45
within reach of the front door. A .40cal Glock within reach of the back door and a S&W .357 in the living room. My 68 year old wife is just as capable of handing all three as myself,even better with the Glock :-[.
   I am by no stretch a paranoid person,but home invasions are not uncommon in the city we live.They seem to becoming more
common as the economy stays in limbo. I will gladly go when the Lord calls,but I refuse to have some idiot send me before He does.

I used to keep mine out and about until my now ex son in law stole 15 pistols. Now they're locked up in a steel cabinet.
