    I currently store all my air powered firearms in the large, full sized safe with all my regular firearms. My reloading room has served as a catch all room for various projects I have been working on and general storage. Recently I have cleaned it out quite a bit and next up is cleaning/organizing the safe. I am looking to move my air firearms out of the safe to free up room in there so I am looking for storage ideas. If it helps I have 1 pellet rifle, 1 BB rifle, 1 Airsoft rifle, and 2 Airsoft pistols cluttering up my safe.

    My two Beeman air-rifles will continue to clutter up my gun cabinets.
    Because they each cost more then some of the guns in there.

    And they don't make either one to the same high quality standards anymore.
    So they would be very hard to replace.

    I have old BB guns hanging on nails in the garage & basement.
    Needless to say, I don't worry about near as much!

    I don't know much about air rifles. But Ive heard some of the pump type should be stored with a few pumps in them.

    Well as always you are a special case RC :)

    My airsoft guns were cheap Walmart impulse buys for a dorm room college war. The BB gun was my first "firearm" at 16. The pellet gun is good for bird pest control. Nothing overly expensive or rare. I am thinking either a cheap Stack-On cabinet with a simple lock or just some wall hangings.

    You are correct in that a couple pumps of air are recommended for most of the "pumpers".

    I keep all of my guns on a gun rack in my closet. A safe costs more than all my guns combined.

    In the safe, like rc. Not because of their value: Sheridan Blue Streak ($ 60 in 1968); Crossman Mark II Target ($ 26 in 1968); Webley & Scott Tempest ($ 145 in 1988).
