When talking about being a gun enthusiast, many people would often think that they would only find guns (and lots of them) in a person’s home. This usually makes some people think that it’s kind of daunting to visit their home. But, there’s actually more than that.
Being a gun enthusiast doesn’t mean people merely spend their money on guns. Apparently, you can also find other fascinating items in their home than that. And if you’re planning to start collecting too, here are some items that you can add to your home that are usually found in gun connoisseurs.
Guns are dangerous. If left lying around the house, anyone could use it to intentionally wreak havoc or accidentally shoot other people. It will not only cause injuries but it can also take the lives of the people you love.
Especially if you have children in your home, it’s definitely not a good idea to just leave it wherever you want. Children are naturally curious hence, it would be safer if you keep your guns out of their sight to not trigger their curiosity.
That’s why gun experts use a safe to keep their guns secured. They make sure to take steps in keeping your Browning secure at all times. This way, no one can easily take it, especially without their permission.
With a properly stored gun, you won’t have to worry about curious kids or other people using it. Also, you can keep everyone in your household a lot safer.
Gun enthusiasts know how important it is to keep their firearms clean. This is because guns are usually made out of metal. And whether you’re a gun connoisseur or not, you know that this kind of material can get rusty and corrode over time if not cleaned properly. Hence, your firearms won’t function well and their aesthetics could get affected too.
Regular cleaning, however, ensures that firearms last longer. This prevents dust build-up and rust from getting worse. Therefore, your guns stay in their pristine state for longer.
Hence, gun enthusiasts make sure that they have a cleaning kit with them at all times. These days, you can now clean kits complete with the essential tools you will need. But, if you like to purchase them individually, here are some essentials that you will need:
- Cleaning rod (either carbon fiber or aluminum)
- Cleaning patches (changed with every pass of the cleaning rod)
- Cleaning brush (either bronze brush or nylon)
- Cleaning chemicals (such as solvents, degreaser, lubricant, and protectant)
- Gun utility brush
- Bore Snake
If you’re a collector, you’d definitely want to show off your collection. You want to always see them and you also want your guests to see them.
However, with guns, it’s not always a good idea to keep them where they’re easily seen. Because you’ll never know who will touch and use them causing harm to the people in your household. So, what can you do instead?
Gun enthusiasts know that owning a gun is a responsibility to keep accidents at bay. Yet, it’s understandable how one would badly want to have their guns displayed because it’s what they love. Hence, the replicas.
While some show off their real gun collections in their home. Others, on the other hand, use replicas to display. They look and feel the same as the real ones. Yet, you can’t use it to harm others. It’s a safer option to show off your love for guns in your home. The best part of it is that they’re much affordable.
Just like displaying gun replicas, you can also express your love for guns using everyday items or decor. Hence, firearm aficionados never miss adding such items in their homes too.
One of the coolest items you can have if you’re planning to start collecting gun-inspired items is an AK47 whiskey decanter if you drink. You can also find a glass designed with a bullet embedded in its side.
There are also gun-shaped pens as well. Wine and bottle openers that resemble a gun are cool too. You can also go for a shotgun shell-inspired coaster, handgun mug, or other items with characters holding a gun. Regardless which ones you choose, they will definitely make your home look cool while showcasing your love for the item.
Gun enthusiasts have a lot more in their homes that express their love for guns. If you’re planning to start collecting too, just make sure that you follow the safety precautions on guns.
