One the dog all others well secured unless on our person
Thompson Center Renegade side lock .50 cal muzzleloader above the Entertainment center. There has been quite a few deer shot over the years with that old smoke pole. The only others are a WW2 Walther P38 that my grandfather brought home from the war and a German Luger also a WW2 vintage gun that my wifes grandfather brought home from the war. Pictures of both of our granfathers are right there in the shadow box with them. Great conversation starter, catches everyone's eye.
I USED to have a replica Sword of Damocles over the front door, but the police said it was a "booby trap." Seriously, what do they teach in school these days?

My Dads "library" (study) had a small fireplace, and was lined beautiful wood book cases and alternating wood and glass gun cabinets. They actually locked with little brass keys. He had a few US and CSA cavalry sabers on the walls. The coffee table was full of war relic pistols with a glass top (it locked too). The only thing in his desk drawer (locked too) was his Colt from Korea. It was enough to keep us out of it, but nothing to stop a thief. He had a few nice bird mounts on display, and I have no idea what happened to those. It was my favorite room in the house, and I spent more time in there than he did. Now everything is locked in gun safes. Some day I would love to build a study like that again...

Your points are shallow... my points are Hollow....
Without getting too technical, none. Even the kitchen knives are in a drawer instead of a block sitting out. Unfortunately, I've yet to acquire anything worth displaying.

I had not really thought about this before, but I do have a replica of a Knights Sword that is on display and in reach of anyone who wants to touch it. It would make a great weapon, just as it did in centuries past, leading the Crusades.
I suppose he'll be better at sword fighting once he's out of prison...
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
