    I have cigarette lighters that are gun shaped, and shelves of gun books, stacks of gun movies, dozens of first person shooter video games, t-shirts and bumper stickers with gun slogans...

    Hi, my name is Jim, and I've been addicted to guns ever since I could rack the slide on my imaginary M1911 finger gun and say "bang bang":p

    I've been looking for a little extra cash to buy a burnt-out Mosin Nagant to make a lamp out of it.

    Other than that, I've got loads of gun magazines (print), and gun parts not currently in use.

    There's a 40mm Naval round on my kitchen counter as a conversation piece, with a S&W model 1 nestled atop a crystal ashtray in front of it. You can guess what the rest of the house looks like.

    Maybe a few tee-shirts, I leave the decorating to my wife, she is a lot better at that than I am. She dosen't care what I get, as long as it stays in my safe or closet.

    Agreed! I was also thinking it would make a nice coat hanger :)

    I have a few miscellaneous tin signs

    Gun related patches sewn into clothes I have.
    Empty shell casings as decor.
    I work gun related imagery into YouTube videos that have nothing to do, subjectwise, with firearms.
    Fridge magnets shaped like .38 caliber cartridges
    I printed a picture of Jeff Cooper and stuck the picture on a luggage tag to make the bag easier to identify.
    T-shirts with "kalashnakitty" and various gun manufacturers' logos on them.
    I bring paperwork with me in a bright red folder to which I've affixed pictures of John M. Browning, Mikhail Kalashnikov, and Hiram Maxim.

    A 500 S&W shell as a key chain thing(fob?). It definitely gets looks.

    NO
    I have kids
    I never want them to associate the idea 'toy' with a gun.

    I have an ashtray made from a WWII 50BMG cartridge and 105mm primer.

    Magazines and books fan be found around the house.

    Other firearm related objects (cleaners, mag loaders, etc) can also be found in various places of my home.

    My wife is mad enough that I spend money on the guns themselves. Any gun related stuff, and I would be single.

    I considered doing the same with a .50bmg round, but the round was too big to comfortably carry in my pocket all the time.

    I have some firearms "paraphernalia" (keychain, coffee mug, etc.) but I really don't like to advertise. I avoid shirts, bumper stickers, patches, etc., as much as I'd like to have that stuff I just get paranoid that I'll catch the eye of the wrong person.

    I have the brass casing from a 5" naval deck gun by the front door for umbrellas and walking sticks.

    There used to be an old rifle shaped camera mount around here somewhere... for photographic "hunting."

    And about a dozen nerf guns.

    toy guns...

    My six kids have a literal arsenal of toy weapons...

    Nerf guns and swords, squirt guns and super soakers, and airsoft replicas.

    Toys are toys and my guns are not toys, and ever since they were little, my kids have known the difference.

    I've got a truckload of magazines, every one I've ever bought since 1986. A lot of books as well, including 53 leatherbound editions, most of which are shooting or hunting related. Might even be some framed old west prints and John Wayne paraphernalia floating around here too.

    Nope, altho western gun-related leather & other stuff can be very beautiful and I have a handsome set of holsters for mounted shooting.

    My home decor is western, bullhides, antlers, old bits/spurs, western art, leather, etc. If I had some antique western guns, I'd probably display them.
