    I'm not one for buying something I can make. The pistols are on fiberglass rods. The rods are centered and evenly spaced through the full length. The pistol rack stiffens the shelf, and keeps the pistols from bumping into each other. It's simple, and effective.

    As you can see, my magazines are also mixed in. Magazines relative to the pistol are held in place with earth magnets that are screwed into the shelf. It works, but, I don't like it. I'm thinking of something "space-saving" and without buying it. Maybe you have a "home made" solution that you created.

    Harbor Freight large and medium size magnets. Gorilla glued in place. Works great and cheap.

    I know you mentioned home made, this panel was purchased.

    I think that this, or something similar could be made fairly easy with the right material. My wife said she could do it with her sewing machine. She actually DID make some of the pouches for me by sewing old molle panels onto some magazine holders I had laying around.

    Any way, I got the panel here Wilde Custom Gear (http://www.wildecustomgear.com/)

    I love it.

    @IheartSig
    I like the concept in design.
    I'll bookmark it as an option.
    Thanks

    No problem man. For what its worth, prior to the above I actually DID make my own door organizer using a sheet of hook side Velcro material. I used magazine pouches that I had put the Velcro material on with the fabric glue. I got everything at Michaels.

    Of course that all depends on what your door material is made out of.

    I keep pistol mag's in a couple of foam lined handgun boxes! I can make enough room for them in between the butt stocks on the floor.
    I only keep one basic load of three 30rnd AR mag's on the shelf.
    The rest of the shelf is taken up with optics, camera's, my best knives a few important papers.
    The door is taken! That's where my handguns reside.

    Glad to see you remembered to blank out your name tapes this time!! :s0108: :s0155:


    Because these days magazines (and ammo) are just as valuable & indispensable as the firearms they go to, plus mine are all loaded and stowed in mag carriers ready to go. o_O

    I decided to incorporate the pistol magazine into the top interior of the safe. 3/4"x4" plywood was cut to width, then 1/16"x4" (allowing 3/4" overhang) was attached to extend and catch the edges of the sidewall fireproof panels.
    The magazines (as mentioned previously) are held in place with Earth Magnets at a spacing of 1-3/8" on center. I'll pick up some matching felt to finish it off.
