The last two racks I made I really did not like, I came up with this idea a few days ago and I really like it. For the gun holders I incorporated the use of horse shoes. Looks cool and seems to work great too.

Love the look of cedar. Pad the horseshoes and then lock the guns in a steel locker or safe.

That’s a nice rifle rack! You did a really good job with padding the horseshoes. I didn’t see the padding at first glance and had to look again. Is it some kind of rubber tube you cut open? It’s a very unique rack, as well. I like it.

I padded the shoes with a plastic tubing cut in half & no we don’t lock up guns, guns are always at the ready in my home and shop. I do promote gun safety, but in my house guns are like tools and every one knows how to use them safely. That’s for you Knothead 62.

Unfortunately your guns are “at the ready” even when you are not home….....and a thief is.
I still like the rack however…..I would like to display some inoperable guns in it.

“I do promote gun safety, but in my house guns are like tools and every one knows how to use them safely. That’s for you Knothead 62.”
Glad everyone knows how to use them safely. I’m a Hunter Education instructor and promote gun safety PLUS locking them securely. Part of the HE course deals with locking firearms in a secure place where they are inaccessible to thieves. I was the victim of theft- twelve guns gone! Three had belonged to my grandfather. Plus, they took his coin collection and railroad watch! I use this illustration in all my classes and classes where I assist in certifying other HE instructors.
All I can do now is think of what nice guns we had! Now all my firearms are in a locked heavy steel safe secured to the wall.
