What's on the wall in your reloading area?

Thankfully, I reload indoors in A/C. I was just thinking about hanging a few frames I took from my late grandfather's house several years ago. One is an original roughly 8x10 autographed photo of J. Edgar Hoover signed to my grandfather, on 9-11-45, I'm guessing on his departure from the FBI. I'm told he'd tried to resign from the FBI so he could enlist to fight in WWII, but J. Edgar told him "you'll do your war service here." I have his framed FBI War Service Certificate as well...and was going to hang the two together.

Not that I would dream of selling these things...but it occurred to me, the photo might have some value. I did a bit of googling, and couldn't find anything like it...but got the notion that it's probably worth at least several hundred $, perhaps more. I just kind of wonder if these are things that should just be put up on the wall, or put (intact in their glass fronted frames) into something bigger to protect them before hanging them.

I am in my garage so what's on my walls are 2 x 4 studs! Lucky to be inside with AC. My biggest problem is dust, I have to cover EVERYTHING when not in use. Real pain.

I have a picture of President Reagan and I need to get a frame for the autographed print of Sgt. Sammy Davis.

Everything else shared in the garage for space, but above the bench there's 2 American Flags one printed on 9/12 the day after by the news paper, Naval Air Power poster, a Heineken plaque and tools.

The anti fatigue mats make standing and loading much more comfortable.

I've got an M-1 Garand on the wall above my reloading bench. It's pretty beat up, and I really like the looks. I have never shot it, although I am sure it still functions.

Dust.




One laminated print, of a guy walking through a marsh, cradling his shotgun (me).
Photo taken by my best friend.
He was killed 3 days after giving me that photo.


I used to have a quote hanging on the wall.

"Thou shalt pick one target, forsaking all others, when a flock flyeth past."
- Jim Carmichael

Antlers, Dillon calendar, Stihl calendar (I always must be sure of the date ), Sierra bullet poster, Hornady Zombie Max poster (thanks Lizard!!!), an old Winchester tin of a guy fighting a grizzly bear, a tin I bought up in Glacier national park...


I should get some old hunting pics up on the wall like Jack has (although my game wasn't human). I should find a place for my old trap trophies, but with all my reloading and casting gadgetry, I ain't go no room!


Hope to add an elk rack next month.

And I bet no glue or tape is required to keep them stuck to the wall.
