At this point in our current environment, buy a steel vault as heavy as you can afford. Displaying guns in the home is now past its prime. My father had a gun case built into one of our Knotty Pine walls when I was growing up in the 1950s. By 1970, the guns were removed.

Just my 2cents worth, your mileage may vary…

... A handgun box, well THAT might be more attractive and concealable… ;-)

How many guns? What type of guns? Rifles? Pistols? Shotguns? Do they have scopes or other attachments? Do you want a display cabinet or a security cabinet?

Having some more info would help.

Agreed, not a lot to go to on.

If you want to display gun in a gun cabinets I say go for it.
