    Wall Mount For Your AR

    Was looking to see if Amazon carries the KAK Flash Can and they don't...probably too close to being a gun and scares them. I did see this wall mount which intrigues me, although it's apparently a 3D printed bracket. I got to thinking that if one like this was made from steel and had a built-in locking mechanism and could be bolted to a wall stud that it could provide security and display, enhancing the ambiance and decor of one's man cave.

    Interesting how it mounts, but it wouldn't be ready to use that way. Guess you could keep a magazine handy.

    Meh, I have these brass hangers I bought when we first moved in and hang my CVA Plainsman caplock over the fake fireplace. Gosh, now rustic. That rifle cost me 80 bucks off gunbroker, so if someone stole it, I wouldn't be out much.

    Yeah I tend to agree. Even though it may primarily for display purposes, if I hang a gun I want a full magazine in it. It is a clever idea though.

    Yes, I think you are mainly stuck with eBay for Flashcans.
    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    I just took mine off my back window in my pick em up truck, hammered it a little flatter, drilled some holes in the window brackets, and put metal screws in them and screwed the mount to the wall studs.
    if thet don't hold it up then I got some Duct Tape and of course IF that fails then my default setting of Super Glue will hold it,
    may have to sale the racks with the house though cause you know they ain't coming off the wall with Super Glue!

    If I'm going to mount my AR on a wall, I would want a 30 round mag in my AR and one in the chamber. I'm not looking for a mag in a crisis.

    I just tossed this out there to inspire one of our inventive folks! A design which locks...is released easily and quickly...and has a 30 round mag incorporated should be possible.

    I suspect a AR mounted on the wall might attract attention from the wrong crowd. I can imagine someone with both feet on your wall trying to yank that AR off the locked bracket. What a nasty mess to clean up, new drywall, studs, paint, etc.

    Lock up those AR's in the gunsafe and put your purdy ole 50 caliber Hawkin up their instead. I am sure you can figure out a way to have a nice Glock under your pillow for the remote possibility that someone kicks in your door at night.

    This is true for me...I display no stickers on my vehicles, front door or firearms in my home. If I need one it's close by and the person who caused it to be displayed will most likely regret their stimulus.

    Sounds like an endorsement of folks who say that when your adrenaline level is at 100%, you may not be operating at full mental capacity.

    Gee, I'm that way while sitting in my recliner at 0%.
