Hey All,

This is my first time here so not sure if it’s the right place. I just recently purchased my first custom AR 15 type build and they sent me a standing display that goes in like a magazine.

Can I have my gun out on display in my home if there is no ammo or magazine in it? Do I have to have it locked up in safe? I don’t know what the laws actually are.

Thank you for any help

As long as it is not loaded AND accessable to a minor, store it how you like.  Put it on your coffee table if it floats your  boat.

I personally would not put a firearm anywhere that can be seen from outside.  A firearm visible is a great target for a theif.

You spent so much money on a custom build that they gave you a stand-up table display for it?

And with all of that money spent, you ask IF it's "legal" to display it?

WOW, just WOW!

I'm copying my post from the OP's other thread:

Guys, this OP just registered a few hours ago. You should really hold off on responding until they build up some history. We are constantly "probed" by people from the outside, looking to see what type of information we share.

The OP hasn't been back in 10 hours, since their initial two posts, for any follow-up questions.

They won't want to build up any history if they come here and post questions and everybody ignores them.

Except, in BOTH of the threads he started, he got a bunch of answers, and still hasn't come back with any follow-up posts to show if he's legit....

So......

Maybe it's time for a test to get in here?  I'm tired of being "probed by ALIENS"...

Meaning, you don't ask a question & then just LURK like a JERK!  You get involved.  The last couple of months seem to have been quite interesting in terms of new people having advanced questions requiring complicated answers.  Take this one for instance.  The FFL that transferred the rifle to the OP would be the FIRST person to ask about display modes, storage, etc., wouldn't they?

I just washed my blue jeans.  Is it OK if I hang them on the clothes line to dry or do I need special permission from the Chief of Police?  The store where I bought the jeans gave me free laundry soap , 100' of rope & clothes pins.  So is it REALLY ok to use them?

Tried to agree, like, and laugh to your post @Smokin .50 but only could do one.

Thanks Paul!  We now return to lurking in silence & awaiting the next ALIEN PROBE :)

That is a completely wrong mentality and against the spirit of why the community exists.

Yes, majority of the people visiting here are here to learn and very few actually have the will or nerves to register to ask a question... at the fear of being called an idiot @Smokin .50.

As gun owners we say "there is no such thing as a stupid question" when it comes to firearms, yet some old timers can't help but be internet commandos themselves.

Yes, I did check out the username and email and it is a legit person.  

@Sniper holding off answering the question is ridiculous especially as those answers are going to answer 5 or 10 others who have the same question but did not know to ask it, were afraid to ask it at the fear of sounding stupid,  or will ask in 3 or 4 years finding it on Google.  Or do you suggest they go post 20 things about why Trump is great and democrats are stupid before they are allowed to ask gun questions?

@Maksim I don't name-call.  I respectfully disagree.  There are plenty of stupid questions.  Trolls use them as bait.

If this guy is legit, so be it.  Many aren't.  Some are even prohibited persons.  We're constantly being "probed" by crazier & crazier questions from who knows where.  Moms Demand?  OAG?  All of the above?

My apologies if my rough outsides didn't expose my tender "Mentor" middle.  Every once in a while I still have a sweaty flashback of a dude hunting a 300 pound hog at 25 yards w/ a .338 Lapua Magnum & heat imaging scope that ran North of $14K & weighed-in at 30 pounds.  Missed two shots & hit the hog in the ham on a quartering-away shot, blowing-out the entire opposite shoulder.  It was GONE!  When we got what was left of the animal to the butcher, the butcher asked me, "Does he like bone in his sausage?".

Maybe Lapua Boy should have asked some stupid questions?  Like "do I need a tarp so my BMW X3 mini SUV doesn't get filled with pig blood & melting ice"?  (Luckily the guide service we hired had some spare tarps!)

It's worth a cup of coffee to make this right.  I'll send a PM.

I feel I need to jump in because this is getting ridiculous. First, thank you to the people that actually helped and answered my question. To the people with their smart ass comments and the ones with their crazy theories, maybe just keep those to yourself.

This is my first AR so I was not sure of the rules. Instead of buying a cheap one damn well knowing I’d want to start upgrading it right away(it’s my personality) I decided to go straight for the higher end build. They sent me a table top stand(fancy fake mag attached to a cut out base) that I can insert the rifle and display it.

I do know jersey has crazy stupid laws so was just checking if I could actually display it. Again, thank you to the people that honestly replied and helped me out.

Oh boy, part of that I won't even touch..

I understand the part about stupid questions (and I believe the only stupid question is one not asked), but come on, you know better than all of us, for every legit "stupid question" posted here by a newbie, there are TONS of "one hit wonders" that do a single "post and run", never to be heard from again. Like Rosie said above, many of those are "probing" questions by the "enemy". Remember what state most of us live in?????

Unless the OP comes back right away with a follow-up question or reply, how do we know if it's a legit "stupid question" or a "prober", where "shooting from the hip with responses" can have the wrong impression, or worse....

The OP finally came back (above), 8 days later, with an additional post, after starting two new threads with the same question a week ago. So, I don't think (either does Rosie) that it's a problem to be "cautious" with replies to newbies until we know more information, specially considering the hostile state we live in.

So if the "enemy" is "probing" us with questions what's wrong with giving the correct and LEGAL answer. Would that not show the probes, trolls, enemy, or who ever elce that were all legal law abiding gun owners on here?

I just want to know what rifle comes with a stand. 

I ordered a custom build from F1 Firearms. I have a decent social media following so they threw in a stand for it. Here is a picture I took of their website so you can see the stand.

    • I would be happy to have her.
    • The Lone Ranger was ambushed and captured by an enemy Indian War Party. The Indian Chief proclaims, "So, you are the great Lone Ranger"... "In honor of the Harvest Festival, YOU will be executed in three days." "Before I kill you, I grant you three requests" "What is your FIRST request?' The Lone Ranger responds, "I'd like to speak to my horse." The Chief nods and Silver is brought before the Lone Ranger who whispers in Silver's ear, and the horse gallops away. Later that evening, Silver returns with a beautiful blonde woman on his back. As the Indian Chief watches, the blonde enters the Lone Ranger's tent and spends the night. The next morning the Indian Chief admits he's impressed. "You have a very fine and loyal horse", "But I will still kill you in two days." "What is your SECOND request?" The Lone Ranger again asks to speak to his horse. Silver is brought to him, and he again whispers in the horse's ear. As before, Silver takes off and disappears over the horizon. Later that evening, to the Chief's surprise, Silver again returns, this time with a voluptuous brunette, more attractive than the blonde. She enters the Lone Rangers tent and spends the night. The following morning the Indian Chief is again impressed. "You are indeed a man of many talents," "But I will still kill you tomorrow." "What is your LAST request?" The Lone Ranger responds, "I'd like to speak to my horse...alone." The Chief is curious, but he agrees, and Silver is brought to the Lone Ranger's tent. Once they're alone, the Lone Ranger grabs Silver by both ears, looks him square in the eye and says, "Listen Very Carefully!!! FOR...THE...LAST...TIME.. "BRING POSSE!"
    • Good question! Id like to know too! I only found that link from a REDDIT post and recommendation. It sounds like its a popular budget purchase; similar to PSA. I can only assume the quality is similar too..  So, not bad and good for fun range toy; but not competition quality..
    • After the unpleasantness(no electricity, no heat, no open gas stations, ...)  of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy,  I took preparedness much more seriously than ever before.   Vowed to be able to shelter in for two weeks without food stores, utility power, etc..  (I envy those of you who are prepared for a 3 month situation.)  I had acquired supplies spanning categories including emergency food, water, lighting, hygiene, medical supplies, communication, and of course, security; among others. A representative partial list of them are below. The sheep are already beginning to get restless/spooked.  I can envision a point very soon where that will increase exponentially.  By then you will have missed your window of opportunity to prepare.  Noticed this evening that almost every emergency food item at Wise (wisefoodstorage.com) is listed as "Stock is low" and in your Shopping Cart it also states "Stock is low.  Allow 2-3 weeks for delivery."  Will be interesting to see if this changes to "Out of stock" at some point. I already have Wise food on hand.    - Several days ago, I explicitly informed all my adult children that if they had not yet given thought to preparedness for their families, NOW would be a really good time to do so. One should also consider the potential for more complex scenarios such as a bad storm impacting electricity or a late March deep freeze causing broken water mains and impact on water supply to your home, etc.  COUPLED with limited utility crews available to respond due to the impact of the virus.  - Some of the OTC medical supplies I had previously  purchased and stored had gone well past their expiration date.  I checked them all several days ago, discarded them where appropriate, and backfilled them (Costco and Walgreens).   - We always refill our cars before they reach half a tank.  That gas also represents spare fuel for my generator if needed. - If you have prescription refills available (e.g. antibiotics)  you might want to consider refilling them proactively. - Have plenty of first aid supplies on hand such as: first aid kits, Neosporin, rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, naproxine, etc on hand.  Same goes for children and infant strengths of those where appropriate. - Extra paper towels, toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, laundry detergent, etc.   - Baby wipes for personal hygiene, especially handy if there is any interruption to water supplies.   - Plenty of kitchen garbage bags and large contractor garbage bags, in the event of garbage pickup interruption. - Paper plates, plastic cutlery, etc. - Triple set of spare batteries for every flashlight, radio, radio scanner, smoke/fire detector, CO detector in my home. - Clorox disinfectant wipes. - Purchased an additional propane tank for my grill.   Going tomorrow to refill several empties that I have in my shed. - Cash money on hand in the event banks or ATMs close. Lastly, given this is a Firearms forum, I assume everyone is prepared from a "security" perspective.  A few years ago, I recall someone posting here a picture of a mob of customers at Walmart fighting to get a TV on Black Friday.  Imagine what they would do if it were for food.
