    Well, this idea freed up some additional room for my long guns but I lost some shelf space. Well at least now I'll have room for my next two purchases, a Kel Tec Sub2000 and a Glock 17 8) with plenty of hi cap mags 8). I decided to hang most of my pistols from the door, I removed the door panel and the backing of the board (made of thick cardboard like material) was a piece of 3/4 inch drywall (measured 14 x 44 inches). I cut out a piece of 1/2 MDF and replaced the drywall, then I pre-drilled the locations I wanted hooks and screwed in some brass hooks. It did not free up as much room as I thought it would but enough for a few more purchases 8).

    Good job! I like it.
    I also have some black velvet "stickers" (size: 5/8" x 2") that are nice, about as thick as a credit card, and really soft. If you are interested in having some to put on your brass hooks, PM me with where to ship and how many. (as you might add more hooks later)
