    Whatever you do make the barrel slots plenty deep. I've seen many clubs have racks with tiny little notches making an accident waiting to happen.

    Also make sure if it is two sided that the slots do not lineup side to side. I seen them built that way somewhere and you could only use half the slots.

    One of the best I saw was made on a old truck axle/rim and guns were tight in a foam notch. had a table umbrella over it to keep sun and /rain off I dont have pic but it was cheap to make and was heavy so wind would not blow it over. It had to be moved with the lawn tractor . so may have had concrete in the tire.

    Just some observations about wood cable spools...

    We shoot at a few clubs that use/used them and helped one club build a few.

    They can be a pain to prepare because to fit the guns on the spools properly, material has to be removed from one of the rims so the guns can lean inward. These things can be tough to cut so they don't look like someone was at them with a dull chainsaw.

    They take up a lot of room (compared to a vertical rack) because (1) they're bigger anyway and (2) since guns can be stored in a 360ยบ circle, it's necessary to provide room for people to move around them comfortably on all sides.

    Thanks to LTS... I have to turn my 90T around in many racks, just to avoid smashing the bead!

    regards to all,
