Hand-Fired Recommendation for a Stoker Guy

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

Nortcan,
Yes we can have a gun there. No need to be hidden, doesn't have to be locked in a safe. Here in PA (and some other states also), you can open carry a loaded firearm. You can also apply and get a license to carry firearms which allows you to conceal carry a loaded firearm

WOW.
Fabulous, I must move down to Pa. Then the Marlin or the Henry will be above the stove, and maybe both :lol:
I like the paint over my faux-foyer but would preffer the rifles :roll:
Anyway thanks for taking time to answer.

Very nice looking installation you have. All is in harmony :idea:
A question about the gun on the back wall: is it possible to hang a shotgun there in you'r region? No problem for me but just a little jealous cause here in Québec Province, an arm shouldn't be visible, locked, in a safe, at the bank :lol: :lol: .
P/S, not an obligation to answer the gun question if you don't want, I will understand...
I hope a bad person doesn't ever give you reason to defend yourself, it may be tough throwing the safe at them or asking them to wait until the bank opens :lol:

Remember, although PA is an open carry state, as soon as you get into your vehicle (for example) the weapon is considered concealed. I never leave home without mine!
