    Need help to choose which pistol rack for my Safe

    I have this top shelf i never used so i would like to add a full length pistol rack such like this https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1021355226 but the issue is i don't even know if it'll fit whole thing without falling over the huge hole in back where rifles with longer barrel would be .. Anybody could chime in?

    My safe is Liberty 24 Centurion

      The pistol rack is 7.5” deep. If you need that space in the back to remain free for rifles/shotguns just attach the rack to the existing top shelf. How deep is the shelf?
      You can add an L-shaped bracket to the rear of the shelf to keep the pistol rack in place.
      Exercise the Bill of Rights. It's good for your Constitution.

        Well I primarily like to owns pistols more so i wouldn't mind to cover that gap, I might go with that brackets to see how it goes.

        The dimensions is roughly 17L 26W 9.5H

          I use those pistol racks in my safe they work great and you can customize the width very easily. Your question is really dependent on the depth of that shelf vs pistol rack depth

              You can cut a piece of Plexiglas the size of the shelf and lay it on top, or you can screw wooden blocks to the edges around the hole and cut the Plexi to the same size and shape of the hole. You can orient the blocks lower so the Plexi will inlet itself flush to the shelf. You can also paint the blocks or use a sharpie to make them black so they match.
              Another way would be to screw flat metal brackets on the underside of the shelf so they stick out into the opening about an inch or so. You can cut a piece of wood the same shape and just drop it into the opening and the brackets will support it. This way it is still removable if you need the space, the same way the Plexi would be in the second method above. The wood option would be easier, less expensive and you can cover it with carpet to match.

              P.S. You Benji's are missing some zeros

                        I've also experimented with numerous types of handguns racks for my safe(s). I even started with plastic letter organizers like this:



                        The Hyskore racks are awesome, but you need room top-to-bottom also. My shelves are pretty close together so it's tough to get guns in/out, especially if you put anything in front of the rack. So if you have a deep safe, putting the rack near the back wall will bury those guns if/when you get more.....

                        The Hyskore looks perfect for your needs - until your handguns get together and make new ones.....

                            Once I see how my tallest fit -- I'll shorten that uprite tab at the back ?

                            And I just found this --- I could play with it - narrowing sections for the pocket pistols & widening for others --

                              I'm not too sure cutting the tabs off in the back of the Hyskore because your handgun will be almost as high anyway. It really depends on how much height you have and if you'll need the room in front of the rack. For me, I have a bunch of shelves in one of my handgun safes and they're kinda' close together. Here's an example of an older safe, photo is probably 6+ years old.

                              20180603_221250 2.jpg

                              You can see there's row of handguns in the rear and others in front. The Hyskore raises the height of the sights about an inch - so you really need more room than there is in this photo.

                              Here's how @Pate stores part of his S&W collection....
