Default How do you store/display your guns?

Hello everyone

After having quite a hard life as a research-tool (which did leave marks) my airsoft-USP is, at least for now, retired.
And because I couldn't have it just lying on my desk, but would't stuff it back into the box and put it away somewhere, I decided to just put it on the wall.
It's a pretty simple setup, just two nails in the wall, slightly tilted so the pistol can't just fall off them, and it may not be safe for a live-fire gun.

(Sorry for the bad quality)

But how about you?
If you don't have to have them locked away in a safe, how do you store/display your guns?
Also on the wall, or in a shelf, or hidden somewhere?

Thanks in advance,

Max

I'm under no legal requirement to have my guns in a safe but the majority of them are since it is the smart thing to do.

With that said I do have some strategically placed but none are out on display.

All but two of my guns are stored in the safe.

One is my defense gun and the other is my Hawken rifle that hangs on the wall in by back room.

I keep them all in the safe except for my carry gun and a 357 mag revolver that sits in a drawer with only it and a flashlight. The safe opens pretty quickly and has a loaded AR and loaded 12 guage easily accessible. Nothing is on display unless there is a problem.
