  • Nice, I hate getting things out of the back of my safe.

    It’s nice of Pendleton to include a merry-go-round for when kids lock themselves in at Bass Pro stores.

    I have to admit that it is a very clever design if you have a lot of firearms, not much storage space for ammo and other bits and pieces, but still very clever.

    Plus, you could play the most elaborate game of Russian Roulette ever.

    • SpudGun, HAHA, Bass Pro visitors are going to love this 🙂

  • ZomBkiller

    Awesome idea. Where was all the ammo for those rifles and pistols though? Most of us would need three shelves for ammo alone I would guess.

  • Jim

    Those shelves look a little chincy.

  • Erik

    Very interesting. Appears there is no fire protection though, also I did some looking and can’t find any pricing. Anybody know what these go for?

  • Pietro

    Nice but I would store the handguns with the barrel in vertical position instead of pointing towards me ;p

  • Chris

    I first saw this on Pretty neat but I think some of the things I have are too large for it (M1A EBR w/ bipod & scope etc).

    Check it out for more info and pictures.

    gun-racks dot com makes & sells several rotating rifle racks with diameters of 18″, 22″, and 30″. If you don’t like the Pendleton, you could put an appropriately-sized gun-rack in your favorite safe.

    On the other hand, I really like this Pendleton system. The gun-racks models max out at 22 rifles, and the Pendleton can handle up to 30. Plus, anything modular is a bonus. I personally don’t lock my ammo because of limited storage space. There’s not too much someone can do with ammo if they don’t have a weapon.

    This has been around for decades, Steve.

    Have you ever read Survival Guns by Mel Tappan? Look at page 360 showing a cutaway photo of a ‘survival gun vault” with the same lazy susan arrangement.
