One of the more common ways to display both rifles and pistols is on a hardwood plaque. Weapon plaques date to the age of sword warfare, and lend an increased sense of history and heritage to your already historic weapon. To find a plaque that best suits your standard issue service weapon, look for one that is custom-designed for your particular gun. For example, a plaque made for a Colt M1911 is perfectly proportioned to frame your weapon and is likely to bear a plate naming the weapon and its era.
If you have a number of different weapons you want to display, then a gun cabinet is a practical investment. These come in varying sizes to accommodate different types of collections. They commonly feature hardwood construction with glass-fronted cabinet doors that allow you and your guests to view the weapons. Most gun cabinets hold rifles in a vertical rack, and those that accommodate pistols usually display them in profile.
Owning a collection of standard issue service weapons is all the more satisfying when you have a great way to display the weapons. Look for quality plaques and gun cabinets made from hardwood and other durable materials. Remember to buy a locking cabinet if you have any children in the home.
