Check with the Reno County 4-H Shooting Sports folks. They should have all sorts of plans.

Hey Steve--

How long would it take us to knock out a set of plans like that bottom pic that Savo has?

Savo--how many guns you want it to hold? Shiite, aint no use dirtyin up a saw blade for less than a dozen is there?

Steve, lets see what we can knock out on Auto Cad. I can email plan to you and we can convert it to jpg. If they want a full sized blueprint they can send ya some green foldin money to cover the cost of the plot. What'cha think?

SAVO---JUST REMEMBER THAT YOU GOTTA HAVE A WALL THAT WILL HOLD THIS UP. IF YOU FIGGER AN AVERAGE OF 9 POUNDS PER GUN, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE A WALL THAT WILL HOLD UP ABOUT A HUNDRED POUNDS BY THE TIME YOU HANG THE RACK AND PUT THE GUNS IN IT.

I have been looking to buy a two gun gun rack. Want it horizontal for the wall to hold my old single shot shot gun and my old 303 Enfield in my cowboy room.

I can not find a rack to buy anywhere in town.

oh now you dont got to do that, i was just wondering if anyone had a gun rack like that for a project my dad and me are doing, and we aren't going to mount it on a wall, we're going to make a drawer under it and it'll sit on the floor in my parents room.

it'll take a few months to get it right and finish it nice but afterwards it'll be good.

I want to do some singles that are horizontal like this one, gun rack, to put over doorways in our downstairs.

I was really thinking of just taking barnwood(with no holes in it) and putting some dowl in with some felt on them for the barrel to rest on and one to slide through the trigger guard...

If you are gonna have the guns loaded, I'd think twice about sliding a trigger guard over a dowel. Too much opportunity for an accidental discharge. Remember, safety's are mechanical devices and can fail.

Using the lower pic as a pattern, I drew up a set of simple plans on Auto Cad and emailed them to Steve. He worked on them a bit this morning and will post them here as a jpg file so that you can copy and print them. The .dwg files that we use for AutoCad, you wouldnt be able to open unless you had the appropriate version of AutoCad. Steve teaches drafting, so he has all the toys there.

Turning it sideways and making a horizontal rack wouldnt be any large problem. I am also planning on making a rather unique "coat rack" that attaches to a wall near any outside door. It has pegs across the bottom to hold coats, but the top is a shallow cabinet just large enough to hold a sawed off shotgun. The fold down door can have a mirror on it or be decorated with art work of some sort to draw attention away from the offset depth. In case of need, you just pull down the door and access your loaded peace-maker.

Bill,

You can take a pair of front feet off a doe or fawn deer and skin em out and get forms from Cabelas and other places and put the skin back on and make the bent deer foot racks also. I say doe or fawn because they are typically smaller. Sheite, you can use a moose if ya got a wall gun big enough!!.

My grandpa used to take pieces of barn board and then he cut thumb sized forked limbs off the mulberry tree, (Use any tough wood with a smoothe bark) and then cut one of the forks off so that it left a short piece of limb with a distinct bend in it. He stuck these in holes in the board and fastened them with horseshoe nails. He just laid the rifle on this rack, one limb behind the trigger guard and one under the forearm. Ya make it to either fit yer gun or your door. The little cabinet/coathanger is good if you wanna keep the gun mostly outta sight.

Bill

Steve, take that plan and extend the bottom down about ten inches and stick a drawer in it, ok? Eh,,,,,,,make it look like the top one.....

Nah these would be more or less display pieces. Some old stevens and marlins etc when I get my hands on what I want. Maybe and old sharps....

An unloaded gun is merely a finely machined, well oiled club.
