Awesome new product! Put them on the inside of your safe doors, behind a headboard, on a door, anywhere you need to hold a weapon or store one.
What a great idea.

Interesting solution. Has several applications I can think of.
"If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking" - George S. Patton.
They are great for gunsafes, I made my own though. A little different design, but the same concept. I put heat-shrink tubing around the shaft on mine, to protect the barrels better.
The aluminum being soft won't "hurt" the barrel, no. BUT, being soft, it is "possible" (maybe unlikely) that some rifling may be sharp enough to scratch off small bits of aluminum from time to time and leave some fouling inside the barrel. I assume the aluminum would be easier to clean than lead fouling, we all know how much fun that is.
Good work. You might consider testing some powder coatings or rubber coatings, etc. The powder coat might be too easy to mar and scratch/flake.

After jacking off my kimber over 500 times on the shaft, a bore scope and qualified gunsmith saw no, I repeat no negligible traces of aluminum (fouling) in the bore. The shaft is only 2" long, but I will say that the aluminum shaft did get nice and shiney in the process. I thought the same thing you just mentioned would happen, so I used my own personal weapon for the testing and since I'm not a trained gunsmith and do not own a bore scope, I let the experts have a look.
If a qualified and certified gunsmith woudl like to test my product to report on this issue, I would be happy and confident to send you one for testing.
Thanks for the feedback.
This is a interesting idea.
I took apart a couple of old hard drives I had laying around and pulled the very small but strong magnets out of them. Then I mounted the magnets under my coffee table and covered them up with duct tape to prevent scratches.
Two of these mounted allow me to place my glock 19 on them without fear of it falling. The magnets in hard drive are all different, so your mileage may vary.
Love this idea and how it worked out. Thought I would share.
Very interesting idea and product. I can immediately think of a few places in the house where I might want one.
