Very interesting, how did you attach the cross piece where the barrels/forearms sit?

friction / compression between the carpeted walls... see notes in my prior posts, need to cut it a tad longer than what i did...

thanks for the compliments - i've almost got it filled, a nice Mini-30 or Mini-14 would do the job nicely. (black and stainless..) hopefully Santa-Me-Clause can make it appear.

I was in TS yesterday and they had some huge gun safes for sale for reasonable money.

DTC, I see, now after re-reading your notes, perhaps a small strip of adhesive along the edge of the fore piece would resolve the looseness.

Cost Effective?

Great idea, but maybe not so cost effective given what you can get from Stack On such as this: Stack-On GCG-910-DS 10-Gun Security Cabinet - Walmart.com

I have used a 12 gun cabinet for years and nothing has escaped from it. Someday I would like a real gun safe, but in the meantime a device like you constructed or a simple Stack On beats nothing hands down.

considered one of those, think TS had some similar, but they did feel cheap... and i needed something to occupy my time - this project matched my attention span perfectly.

UPDATE:

I've run across a few more pistols since this was posted - decided to follow up on the Velcro idea when i noticed i could hang my pistol cases and magazine cases by using the loop side against the carpet lining.

bought single hooks and some self adhesive velcro (hook side) to hang the pistols on the walls of the case...

hardware from the big orange big box store, $32 ($4 per hook, $4 for 5' of velcro)

the Taurus Judge and the Beretta 92A1 are probably as much weight as this size hook and corresponding velcro will hold.

i think i have room for 2 more long guns, and 3 more pistols...

Nice job. Those truck tool boxes might even be a tic thicker, and also harder to break into than the chap gun storage boxes. They are pretty tough.

That's what I used for a few years.
I had a large over the bed rail box.
I bolted it to the studs in the wall.
Simple and effective
