Looks like all you need is a bigger safe and problem solved...
I thought about getting another safe, but there's too many firearms to be bought first! Priorities ya' know lol. I have a couple of old gun racks that I randomly display certain rifles on, but for the most part, I try to error on the side of safety. I do have an ill-tempered German Shepherd that roams the house to keep most things "safe" though!
I look forward to chattin' with you and seeing more of your collection :mrgreen:
The shepard is definitely a deterrent.
We've got a yorkie and a mini schnauzer, so I need as much safe space as I can get. There are plenty pics of mine scattered around the site here some place. I'm a fan of the ole Mosins too...
Here's one safe, as you can tell I like older lever guns, all the long guns in here are Winchester or Brownings, the hand guns are a mix of whatever fit in the space I had.
,,,,dam Don,i'm jealous. nice collection you have there.
Very nice Don...
don3, your first respect point.
THank You All, will keep posting
Slowly getting there with my WW1/WW2 collection
Mosin Nagant Sniper, Mosin Nagant M44, Enfield .45 acp conversion, Swiss K11, Enfield No4 MK1 ROF Fazakerley and a French Mas 36.
Nice collection Chris!
I like the enfield 45 conversion.
Since I first learned of the Delisle suppressed weapons that were used in WW2, I have wanted to build a true recreation of that particular variant.
I even have a copy of the original schematics and drawings of it around here somewhere.
And I also have a schematic of a reverse engineered Delisle from captured weapons that the Germans did of it to retrofit some MP40's with the same technology.
Some of which was later carried over into the MP5 SD, which is the modern flagship "gold standard" in sound suppression.
In short, the ported reflex suppressor technology of the Delisle is still in use today.
Matter of fact, I also incorporated what I learned from it into my suppressed 22LR AR15 upper and it is spooky quiet.
Yes, I've done a lot of research on the subject. Here are some of my more notable pages of the subject.

I have looked at the Delisle for a while. At some point I will buy one but they sell for £2106 in the UK. That's about $3417. This is the one I was looking at
There is one place here that make a pretty close reproduction, but I do not think the suppression is as good as the originals. And they are pricey as well.
Here is some video of one of them in action and their website.
Looks like the site you mentioned are true to life copies made by Chris Godwin
And just for giggles, here is how my version of it turned out on my 22LR AR. The sound is more of a "poof' like a paintball gun. That section of video starts about 15 seconds into it.
Yes the new repro versions don't have the same suppression as the originals. The original had a 8" barrel inside the suppressor sleeve. The new ones over here have 12" lowthar walther barrels to meet UK legal barrel length requirements
Very nice family picture Chris! That's quite a nice collection you have going there. The anti gunners here would call it an arsenal.
Compared to most of the pics in this thread, my collection is tiny. But a lot of variety -
I've posted everything you see in this pic in other threads at one time or another, but this is just about everything, except for a couple handguns and my Mariner. One of these days, I'll expand the display to hold a couple more maybe.
Some are the wifes. It pays to have a wife who shoots and appreciates old firearms. She has bought me a Persian mauser as an early birthday present. I get to pick that up on the 17th. I'm also picking up a Lee Enfield SMLE and a P14 at the beginning of next month. I have been offered a Springfield 1903 as well and will probably get that if funds can stretch that far
Nice collection. I like the very pistol, is it a Webley or a Cogswell & Harrison ?
chris,Gunny, very nice collections.
Cogswell & Harrison, 1918, Queens mark. Belonged to my father and saw service in WWII. Here's a closeup:
