    I have a gun room, with concrete walls and a large steel door. This is an old picture- probably 8 or 10 years- that I submitted to a sort of contest on another forum. It hasn’t’ changed too much, except the wood has been painted black and there is now charcoal grey carpeting on the floor. It has it’s own heat pump so that temp and humidity are controlled year round.
    This is one of three aisles.The vast majority of my guns are powder burners, I’m very new to airguns. I see no issue with storing them the same way- unless someone out there knows of a reason not to?

         After patiently researching and searching, I learned about Safes and Residential Security Containers sold as safes, then found a commercial safe on CraigsList.  A real safe, perfect size for me, in great shape…….$200.  It has no mirror finish with pretty decals…it’s hidden behind a curtain in the shop.
         I use Rifle Rods from Gun Storage Solutions to store my rifles.  The Rifle Rods allow the rifles to be stored vertically without the barrel leaning against something….balanced.    Check’em out.

    Pcp guns racked vertical or horizontal  with no pressure on barrels.or scopes. SSP guns that have the flip gate open. Breech seal under no pressure. Longer seal life.

    Spring guns racked vertical or horizontal  with Brake barrels cracked open, lever action stored racked vertical or horizontal, again cracked open and an old piston seal over the breech nipple. All the pressure is on the old breech seal not the breech seal.it self.

    The brake barrel cracking open puts little to no pressure on the spring. On the lever actions there may be a slight pressure on the spring but not enough to cause issues. This method I use on spring guns takes the constant pressure off the breech seals. Longer life of the breech seals. JMO💀
