A little while ago someone submitted a post inquiring about different ideas on how to display rifles on their wall. I searched for that post but couldn't locate it. I snapped a couple of pics of what I did a couple of years ago. I used 2.5"x2.5" pieces of pine, and doll rod. Secured the rod at a slight upward angle with wood glue in the center of the 2.5" blocks, and nailed the blocks to the wall. Simple and it works well.
