Good looking storage. Nice collection, too. As above stated, I would pad the barrel notches and maybe use some of that grid underneath, a couple inches up to keep the arsenal from resting on the floor, busted pipes can happen.
Not sure what would be the best for a locking bar/retention. A cable comes to mind, but that can be a pain to mess with.

Very nice indeed. I can see that you are severely lacking in the long gun department

Would you pick me up 500 rounds or so of some quality .45ACP 230gr ball while you're at the gun show? I'm also kinda low on .223/5.56. Thanks.

I'll cover the shipping.

Some felt like they use for pool table covers and a hot glue gun ought to do the trick...very nice job by the way. A nice commercial grade deadbolt and a single door alarm will deter all but the most determined thieves.

Very nice! Suggestion- for floor- two boards- lower board solid, about 8 inches wide. Second board, sitting on top of that, with oval cutouts routed through it for butt to sit in.

For a small handgun safe- Harbor Freight has a .71 cu ft safe on sale thru 3-31 for $59. Digital lock. It aint Ft Knox, but should slow down average punk with a screwdriver. Anybody wants it, I have electronic coupon, send me a PM, will send you coupon.

I wish I had that many guns to need a gun closet.
Good looking job!
