Gettin’ some recognition!

It doesn’t matter how big your company gets, editorial space in a high circulation magazine is great for business. We are excited to have two write-ups in two different firearm publications – Shooting Times and Guns & Ammo. Below are the PDFs of both articles. See what the editors had to say!
(Keep in mind the articles are the words of the editors, not the words of Gun Storage Solutions.)

A Packed Gun Safe is a Good Gun Safe

Gun Safe with Rifle Rods Before and After

Another customer made happy by Rifle Rods!  His safe was packed to the gills and some guns didn’t even have a notch to call home.  The “Before” picture, while fairly tidy in appearance, looks like an accident waiting to happen.  The “After” picture is still packed, but each gun has a spot and there won’t be such a hassle to get a gun from the second or third row.  Rifle Rods make the guns more secure in their spot to eliminate the domino effect.  “W”, as we will call him, has more guns in than before and even made a little shelf for extra storage beneath his guns.

John Doe’s Safe with Rifle Rods

John Doe's Gun Safe Before and After Rifle Rods
Before and After Rifle Rods – for a detailed review read below.

John Doe provides a great breakdown of the details in his new safe arrangement using Rifle Rods

Gun safe 42w x 60h x 25 d, advertised as a 42 long gun safe.  Of course, we all know the manufacturer claims are phooey and I knew that going in.  Loaded the safe in it’s original config (typical triple U rack) and managed to get 23 long guns in, albeit tight and clumsy, and difficult to retrieve those to the rear without moving 5 or 6 in front and risking damage.

Thus invested in a 40 pack of your rifle rods, reconfigured the safe, eliminated the triple U, retained the two verticals, added a shelf to raise the shorter long guns and capped the vertical dividers.

Result = 26 long guns in two rows deep with room enough for another 15, thus revised safe capacity = 41 long guns, and only having to remove two to retrieve one in the rear.

Here’s what we are loving about John’s safe transformation:

  1. John shows how Rifle Rods can run up through the shelf and attach to the surface above, whether it is the ceiling or another shelf. This is a great benefit for those that have those one or two extra long guns.
  2. John kept his vertical shelf standards to support a shelf which is boosting up the shorter guns. This creates extra ammo storage too – win, win! It’s clear that John really spent time thinking about the best arrangement when he grouped guns of similar heights in the three different sections.
  3. He sent in his review!! These safe testimonials are so valuable to anyone on the fence about wether Rifle Rods will work for them or not. John left great documentation and took fantastic before and after pictures. This is just one example of the many safe transformations we witnessed – click here to see more testimonials.

LED Light Kit for Gun Safes

Lighting has always been an issue in gun safes. There are many safe light kits out there, but A&R Motorsports LED Safe Light Kit is the one that we like the best. It is now available on our website to purchase. If you purchase it, be sure to let us know what you think!

Here’s why we like it:

  • The thin strips of gel coated LED lights with 3M double sided tape preinstalled. They are easy to hide and flexible to work with.
  • Cut the end strip on any of the cut lines for a custom fit.
  • Infrared motion sensor for auto on/off with a manual on/off switch.
  • There are 5 12″ strips available and the strips disconnect and reconnect very easily – without being too easy.
  • The power cord separates from the wall plug and is small enough to fit through the existing hole in a safes.
  • Will also work very well in a glass display cabinet

Pull Test Results of Multi-Mags

When shopping for a gun magnet, knowing the product’s magnetic strength is very important.  Will your gun be securely held in place by the magnet?  Will you be able to draw the firearm effectively?  Where/how can the magnet be installed?

Here is the low down on Multi-Mags so you can make an educated shopping decision.

The Multi-Mags are made to attach to a metal surface and are also easily installed onto a wood shelf with a staple gun.  The Multi-Mags attached to a metal shelf will give you greater pull strength than the wood because the metal shelf provides a return path for the magnetism and pushes the strength back towards the other face.   So, based on that, here are the results:

  • One magnet strip (two magnets) attached to 1/2″ thick Cold Rolled Steel (CRS) as the base on one side, like a metal shelf, on one side and 3/16″ thick CRS, like the metal on the slide of a pistol, on the other side: Pulled straight up = 10-12 pounds of pull.
    • Using the same method as above with half of the strip (one magnet): Pulled straight up = 5-6 pounds of pull.
  • One magnet strip (two magnets) attached to 1/2″ thick wood as the base on one side, like a wood shelf, and 3/16″ thick CRS, like the metal on the slide of a pistol, on the other side: Pulled straight up = 6 pounds of pull.
    • Using the same method as above with half of the strip (one magnet): Pulled straight up = 3 pounds of pull.

Please note: Test results are optimized by using the proper thickness and flatness of CRS, pull test equipment,  and so forth.  Many things effect how magnets perform, such as the thickness of the steel.    Therefore, the pull strengths given on this blog post are for reference purposes only and we cannot guarantee that the magnet will perform in the same manner or have the same pull strength in the field.
