    So here's a bit of nostalgia for those of you from the central Willamette Valley. This 8' long oak and glass display case sat in Ole's Gun Shop in Salem for many years. I bought it several years ago right after he closed down and had it in my shop until I closed down late last year.

    The case is 8' long and about 2' deep. In the configuration I had it in, each 4' side had one shelf, but I think you could fit more. It is made of solid oak and oak plywood, no fiberboard or melamine. Glass is in decent shape, no cracks. Wood is in good shape with a bit of patina. It is a heavy bugger.

    I am into this case $1000. I understand I won't get that out of it, but I would like to get $750 o.b.o. I am open to firearms trades or reasonable cash offers. Pick up in Sweet Home, OR.

    This would look better in your man-cave than it does in my garage/shop! Pictures up tomorrow...

    Sorry for the shop photos, but it's too heavy to move outside by myself. If anyone wants any better or different photos, let me know...

    If we had a storefront museum instead of a traveling one , this would be great to display our guns.

    They are good people. I am blessed to have had their support and help over the last several years. I have some guns I got from their shop that remind me of them, which is why I don't mind turning loose of the case.
