    Check Out My Rack

    I finally got off my butt and built a rack to hold my handguns in the safe:










    They used to just lay on that upper shelf, now they're raised up to utilize previously unused vertical space and I still have most of the space under the new rack.

    Nice job I especially like the way you built in adjustability for different barrel lengths.

    Nice, but you need more guns. Actually you need a bigger safe and more guns

    You're right, I do need more guns and a bigger safe, but for now my plan is to leave those two empty spaces in the rack while newly acquired handguns are squirreled away in the corners - so the wife doesn't notice, of course.

    hmmm.... i need about nine more pistols...

    I am always happy to see people build things they need! Great work. You get exactly what you want, custom made, it can be quite cheap, and you get the satisfaction of a job well done.

    That is really the most functional home built pistol rack I have ever seen. You should be proud of it and honestly, I am quite sure you could sell them at gun shows or on line.

    Heck, I'd buy one or two myself.

    Nice rack, looks good. How long did it take to build? Do you have plans with specs to post or did you just wing it?

    cool great idea. Now I need to build me one. Of course that means more guns to fill it up with.
