  • Gun safe storage

    Has anyone used the velcro pistol storage for the inner door of a gun safe? If so will they hold a larger pistol?
    Some of the products out look like junk, that I would not trust to hold up.
    Any input would be great, thanks
    :cool:
    There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

    The Browning ones will hold the heaviest handguns you can find. The problem I am having though is that after time the carpet on the safe door starts to sag.

      Another Option

      A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again

        Velcro

        I also have the browning version. As for big pistols, I have a Ruger 8" .454 and a 15" .375 T/C Scoped, on the wall. They have never let loose in 7-8 years. Of course it takes more than 1 velcro strap to hold both of these up. I think you could just make some if you know someone that sews.

          Instead of doing the velcro thing - I puchased a peg board, then cut it to fit the door of my safe. I then got some rubber spacers and some plastic dry wall sinkers.

          I mounted the peg board away from the door enough with the rubber spacers, secured w/ the drywall sinkers, so that I could use a peg board hook kit from Lowe's or one of them.

          To keep from marring the finish on the trigger guards of the weapons, I purchased some clear vinyl tubing and placed them over the hooks.

          With this, I am able to get about 10-15 pistols on the door, after a little trial and error in setting them up so that they don't interfere w/ the door's closing.

          I would post a pic - but it looks like I'm not smart enough! :rolleyes:

            I prefer the pegs for hanging handguns as on these Armor Vault safes.

            Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

                I'm jealous too. I don't have enough guns to facilitate a safe.

                  Thats a nice safe.

                  I have a small safe. My wife wanted it since we had a kid on the way. It is only a 10 gun safe though. I usually keep my hand guns on the top shelf, but would love to get some peggs. Can I get some of those to put in my safe or is it some thing that comes with the safe?

                    I'd also be interested in a retro-fit for pegs....

                    If you figure it out, post it here and also in the "Make it Yourself" section!

                    Murphy, I noticed there are no bolts in your door. How does the safe lock??
