    I have been trying to decide how to store my PCP’s. Now i just lay them on their side on a large pillow.

    I would like to see what others do to keep them from getting bumped while not in use. I’m especially concerned with pressure being put on the barrel shroud and moderator.I have an Air Arms S510 and will be receiving a RAW HM1000X before too long with any luck.

    Any photos and advice would be appreciated.

    Rubber coated J-hooks nailed to the backside frame of my staircases in the basement. They are held only by the stocks. I’m not promoting to put them under water pipes like I have haha but being a new house it’s a risk I’m willing to take , plus it’s hidden from my kids….. Or wife

    I store my guns in a safe so they get a bump once in a while, but they are totally inaccessible to thieves and my grandkids.

     I keep mine in gun cases. If I plan on shooting again soon, I just keep it in the shooting stand. I don’t like laying mine of the side either. And I don’t prop them up against the wall on the barrel tip either.. So, in the case or on the shooting stand.

    Keep Airguns in a glass gun cabnet and the ones that don’t fit in there I keep next to the cabnet usually in gun socks if I’m not going to shot them for awhile.

    I bought this 10-rifle “A” frame rack on Amazon for some $75. Bottom has textured rubber matts and rubber strips in the “U”‘s up top. It’s some 25″ long at the base, so it fits my 26 1/4″ space perfectly. Holds 5 rifles on each side, as short as my 760-D Pumpmaster.

    I use safes to store my guns and photography equipment.
    Several years ago my house was broken into and items worth ~ $5,000. were stolen. Bummer.
    Thieves generally want to get in and out quickly so if you can slow them down or inconvenience them enough they will probably leave without getting your stuff. Another option is to hide your things. If you leave your guns out, or put them behind glass they won’t last long if your house is broken into.
    Safe’s often show up on Craigslist at substantially reduced prices. Then you just need four friends, a furniture dolly, and a case of beer to move it
