    Got a few more toys, so thought I would post a new photo.

    I swear, when I die I am going to make them bury me down there, pharaoh style.

    Ignore the hanging strap on the rifle on the left, gotta punch a few new holes in there to get it tight.

    Btw, remember how I hate guns and everything? That will always make me laugh:)

    What a fantastic man cave. I am in love.

    I love the Union and Confederate caps and swords. I assume the top gun is a civil war Enfield musket? And I assume the flint lock is the one you mentioned last week.

    You did well young man. But, but but we need more pictures. Close ups of the rifles and swords. PLEASE

    Glad you like it!

    On the wall on the left is a Brown Bess and a Baker Rifle... one AWI, one Napoleonic... and their respective bayonets (the Baker has a RIDICULOUS sword bayonet.)

    [​IMG]

    On the far wall is a two band 1863 Remington zouave and an M1 carbine.

    [​IMG]

    On the column is another Bess, but it's a cheap repro.

    All the guns are repros, btw... the originals are expensive, and you don't want to shoot them:)

    The swords... hm... there is a Scottish claymore on the far wall by the corner, and a pretty standard infantry officer sword on the column. Then, on the right hand side, are four original swords; two Rev War period, and two Civil War period.

    [​IMG]



    The kepis are actually both CSA... one an officers kepi, one a private.

    [​IMG]

    The original stuff... there are two ACW packs, on on the right under the Viking helmet...

    [​IMG]

    ... and one hidden on the left on top of one of the glass cases. Also got some random original bits, like a piece of a shell and a company badge and a cartridge box.

    Oh, and all of the prints are original. Got a bunch, most Napoleonic.

    Quavarius, many people are liberal, most are not stupid to go unarmed. Those would be called a fool.

    My town is majority Democrat and every damned one of us are armed to the teeth.

    Smart liberals own guns. Dumb liberals get shot in Chicago! jumpingsmile

    Why do we have the Bill of Rights? Why do we have the second amendment Quavarius? Read the federalist papers and wise up.

    Bert, I am pretty sure Q was alluding to the idea that some on the right insist liberals just hate guns and want to take everyone's guns, rather than understanding that many liberals simply support some sorts of gun control, and are not looking to take everyone's guns. I've been accused of that by a few people on this forum :)

    I have no problems with Q; however, if he wants to dig on my special issues I will usually respond.

    I simply don't care anymore. I have guns, guns and then some guns. I give to the NRA simply because I am under constant attack for being a gun owner. All the left wing gun haters have to do to get their way is change the constitution and then take property away from 150,000,000 ARMED Americans. Should be no problem.

    I am liberal on social issues and conservative as hell on fiscal matters. I don't need to apologize for my views. I am a full blown libertarian. Love it or hate it I don't change. I will die with my guns and it is time for these gun haters to simply accept the second amendment.

    End of rant.

    Ok, am I blind? Where's the strap on?





    For real though, awesome man cave. I'm super jelly. Would watch a game down there with you any day (assuming there's beer involved).

    Wish I knew how to take a photo and post it. I did concrete etching on my man cave basement. The floor is the Duke Basketball Court.

    I could be wrong but I don't think "Q" is from the south. Plenty of my liberal friends enjoy shooting and owning firearms. Way more than myself who isn't nearly as liberal leaning. Though the majority of them were born and or raised in the south. It seems it's typically urban raised transplant liberals that are more anti firearms.

    He doesn't have the wall space. Go 65 or 70 on the TV and spend the savings on a nice sound system. My Sonos sound bar and sub are as important as the TV in my bonus room.

    Nice man cave, I am jealous. Most conservatives support some forms of gun control as well, but fear that once it starts, it won't end. Also, all that CSA stuff you got, better hope ANTIFA don't see that picture, they will come after it.

    I thought about it, but I gave a lot of my best stuff to a buddy when he moved into his new house, for his office... and I figured I would just stay with a consistent military theme:)
