    I'm thinking I'd like to make some sort of cool display box for a k31 that would both offer a little security and allow the gun to be removed reasonably easy for shooting. I'm thinking building a large frame with some sturdy crossmembers, laying down some fabric or something into it and making the front of it something shatter resistant like lexan. Put a piano hinge on the bottom a few locking hasps around the other 3 edges and hidden screws that affix it to the studs.

    What do you guys think? Too much work for too little security? I'll throw a sling, some strippers, a bayonett, and some ammo in with it to look cool, maybe even print off some pages/pictures from the manual and give them an aged distressed look. I think it could look cool at least.

    I would never keep a functional firearm with ammo where it was readily grabbed.

    All my ammo on my office bookshelves is dummy or I have peronally removed the powder.

    that is of course the plan for the ammo, I just figured it was so common sense that I didn't include it. I suppose maybe its necessary on a forum that includes people who think taking pictures downrange while people shoot in your general direction is a good idea though.

    Build a case out of 3/4" Oak/Walnut/Maple/whatever you like, cutout a high density foam to shape of gun and misc items, upholster with felt of color choice and away you go.
