    Gun storage, room, vault, or even bunker pictures and ideas

    I've been puttering away on a 52"x48" gun closet, with a steel door, 3/4" plywood walls, reinforced with steel mesh since I lost my gun room to family expansion. Most of my dewats, militaria, etc have been moved to my man cave, so this space will serve as just firearms and ammo storage, and even as a reloading cubbyhole. I know some folks may be reluctant to share, so in addition to your setup, feel free to contribute ideas, dreams, and the truly cool gun storage solutions stuff from the web.

    I found a 36" steel firedoor from new construction where it was being replaced with a conventional exterior door, the C7 rack comes from a GC Surplus auction, the hooks are from eBay, and the pistol racks are from Amazon. I had the 2X4s, diamond mesh, and 3/4" plywood laying around. I have a door switch that controls the light, which is a reused 48" fluorescent fixture retrofitted with the LED tubes. My wife secured a number of those stackable plastic bins from her work which will fill the last available space. My safes have been moved to the man cave for "overflow". With some leftover white paint and some carpet tiles on the floor all I need yet is a nice stool to perch on while reloading. My wife calls it the "Matrix" room!

    It's too small to get decent pics from all angles, but I had to work with what I had there.20211122_173630.jpg

    I have an almost identical room - including the steel door, plywood and steel mesh. I had to pay full price for my steel door, but the size is almost the exact same too. That being said, I don't have as many 'display' items as it appears you do

    How useful is a steel door if there's a window?

    Just diamond expanded steel mesh. Nothing special. Leftover from another project, got it from my local machine shop in 4X8 sheets.
