A bit rough but it works.....

Hi,

I only have a small safe for my three handguns; I store them in their boxes but they take up a lot of space and are hard to get at easily.

Yesterday I spent about 1-1/2 hours in the workshop and made up this divider of plywood and covered it with felt.



It's a bit rough, but it works

Cheers,

-John

I do not think that it looks rough at all. In fact I think it is pretty cool and
would work great on my reloading bench/work station. Good job.

I think that is an outstanding gun rack. You should see my homemade brass catcher and target stand and targets if you want to see rough.

Looks good to me.
My brass catcher is home made because I couldn't find a good one sold.

I have seen like yours in wire. Yours will give more protection.

My hand guns hang on the door of my safe in Dean holsters, and the long guns stand up on barrel rods.

I think it looks great! However, my concern would be whether the felt can hold moisture and whether that moisture can result in rusting over the long term when in contact with metal, especially if you live in humid environments. I would either douse the felt in silicone liquid (or any other lubricant of choice) or layer over the felt with silicone cloth.

I never store my guns in cases, even the nice plushy ones - when I travel, they are wrapped in a silicone cloth or a silicone gun sock. I don't even trust the factory cases, unless the gun is stored liberally lubed in a plastic bag with a handful of those mini drying packets inside the case.

I use this to store my pistols in the safe - no fabric touching the guns (unless it is the silicone wiping cloth):

I've got 2 commercial racks like that one you made that I bought at a gun show around 15or so years ago. Each holds 6 handguns and I've had both of them stored in my safe for the whole 15 years, each one full.

So far, no rusting problems of any kind.

Yeah, I'm probably paranoid. But then again, I'm guessing you live in a pretty dry area? Throughout the summer, my dehumidifiers are running 24/7 and suck out of the air 2 gallons of water/day. One of my friends left his CZ in what seemed like a gun-friendly puffy case, chucked into a closet. After 6 months, it was covered in rust. Luckily no serious damage after cleaning.

Yep, it's very dry under the stairs where the safe is, only having three handguns helps too... I have all of them out at least once each week for checking/clean-oil/playing

Speaking about leaving a firearm to rust... l visited a gunsmith friend who showed me a Walther ski-shooting comp rifle that someone used in the snow and just put it back in the case until the following winter.... it was so rusted that the cost or restoration was more than a new rifle would cost.

Cheers, John

Drinking a few glasses of Plonk makes the maintenance more enjoyable.

I sure would not be embarrassed to store; or even display my pistols on such a rack.
