Selecting a design

The first step is to decide what kind of design you need. You may wish to have a freestanding cabinet that has glass front doors and storage cabinets. Some cabinets allow for both rifle and handgun storage and can be quite elaborate. Other gun cabinets can be a simple wall-mounted rack. Think about what type of design meets your needs so that you’ll know exactly what kind of plan to look for.
