Awhile back I was looking for a way to attach my handguns to the door with out scratching them and holding them securely when opening and shutting the door. I ended up using Wire harness clamps. They are strong and coated in soft rubber for protection and grip. I am happy with it.

Man, that's downright brilliant!!! Now I know what my weekend project will be. Any hints to save time on the process?

PS: Now you have to work on reinforcing that ammo shelf! :p

I just use self taping screws and a electric screw driver. I held the gun up to the door with the clamps and marked with a pen. It was quick and painless. The clamps are flexible but not flimsy so they can be adjusted for each gun.

Well, I already have the inside of the door off the safe and will be stopping bye Home Depot later this afternoon to find adequate "hooks". Your idea just bought me lots of extra space. Thanks

Better yet, get the hardware a Lowes. Not only will you not get harrassed for open carry but they also don't fire folks for preventing crime!

Did Home Depot ever get back into the biz of helping their customers find hardware stuff?

I stopped going there after about the 5th time I either couldn't find something I got from there before or couldn't find anyone to help me look for it.

I've seen another way of doing this, which is what I have been thinking about doing.....

Replace the panel on the back of the door with a piece of peg board. Then plasti-dip a bunch of peg hooks. That way it is easy to move stuff around should you want to.

A couple of cool ideas. One of these days I just gots to get me a safe, but every time I think about spending the money, I think about a gun I could buy with the same money...

Really tough choices!

I have a paint cabinet where I also store my ammo.

It's just a 2' x2' x4' wood box framed up out of 2x4s and covered on all sides with two layers of fire-rated dry wall and fire-rated joint compound. The double layer is supposed to give me a one hour fire rating, but I think half that may be more realistic, which should be plenty of time for the FD to arrive.

If anyone keeps any quantity of inflammable or explosive materials in the house or garage, I suggest you consider making one. Total cost was well under $50. and I sleep a lot better... If anyone wants more info or pics, PM me.

Not a bad idea. I'll definitely be able to do all my projects and such once I get settled down and buy a house. Shouldn't be too much longer before that happens.

My gun locker has a sheet of metal with holes in it similar to a piece of peg board. Those hooks would probably work well. The company that made the locker wants way to much for a simple rubber coated hook.
