So, I was thinking about buying one of these
4-gun hangers on eBay for my gun safe and
saw they were the same price on Amazon. I
found the 4-gun models were running around
$20 and a single gun rod was running $12
Then I figured, "Hey, I could make those
myself! So, I think I'm going to try and
I'll post some pics of my attempt and let
you all know how it goes. My thought is to
use 1/8 to 3/16" bar stock with a coating
of electrical shrink tubing and loop the
rod around to make each piece a "more
stable" 2-gun holder.

If you are using shrink-tubing,
will need to account for that
if you are planning to use it
with a small

it's for a
larger caliber, that would not
be as much
of a concern, but you will need
