    Basement of my new house is just too humid, had to find a nice dry spot. I'm not a clothes-horse so made good use of the closet

    I pointed out to the Mrs. that there are spaces available for 2 additional long guns.......

    (My wish list is long)

    I am thinking a carbine/lever action for sure (open sights), not sure about an AR if I do it has to be .308

    That might just be the best use of closet space I've ever seen.

    Thats how my collection started also, untill I didnt feel right with all the stuff behind just a wooden door. And I had to cave in and buy a gun cabinet. Then I figured I had to much invested in firearms to just keep them in a thin metal box. So I had to purchase an actual safe, and its well worth the investment in keeping my firearms safe.

    Nice rack !

    You might be on this already, but pad out the cut outs for the barrel to prevent friction marks on your barrel. It happened to me .

    AND, I recommend atleast putting a locking door knob on the closet door!

    Thinking about a cable w lock thru the trigger guards. Kind of hard to pick them up all together and you sure as sh*t can't shoot them that way

    I remember seeing a thread where someone on this forum did something similar but they were all locked down somehow with a clasp that went over the barrels and looked very secure.

    Careful. I did just that. See my thread "Keeping guns from rusting"

    Read your thread, good stuff. I'll keep my eye on that. I imagine it has something to do with where the rack/gun safe is located, as some of the comments on that thread seem to indicate

    You can line the cutouts with soft rubber gasket material.
    Cut a piece to insert in the floor frame too.

    Steel against rubber won't cause an issue? Also, that combination won't hold any oil.

    Anything touching steel will cause issues. You still have to take them out and clean/oil them, but the rubber doesn't hold moisture.
    I guess there's no perfect solution.
