Something that's not a gun rack but can function as one

Hey everyone, well I'm moving to a bigger apartment with a real bedroom, yay. I have headspace above my bed. I'm looking for something that I can use to hang three long guns above the bed, vertically, (that won't come crashing down on us!) I'm wondering if there is something that doesn't primarily function as a gun rack, but would do the job. I'm thinking/hoping it may be cheaper if its an all-around rack. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks.

Depending on how physically active you are asleep or with your paramour, you may want to reconsider the location of your arsenal.

Duly noted. I would like to put it up somewhere in the bedroom though, where we sleep so they're essentially locked up at night. Not necessarily right above the bed.

This is a no brainer, Bike hangers would be perfect. Just screw them in! Put trigger locks on them!

build one,

any half retarded monkey can. and, if you already have the tools, it should cost you less than $15

I have headspace above my bed. I'm looking for something that I can use to hang three long guns above the bed.There's something called a headspace gage. It's used to measure headspace above a bed.

But only if you have a Browning M2 Sleep Comfort style bed!

This should help - I was looking through the catalogs the other day and say a velcro type setup which hung from the gun safe door and held the pistols. being the cheap bastard I am, I went to Wal-Mart, purchased a shoe caddy for a couple of bucks, two screws to hold it up and perfect! It's made of a sorta fishnet type material, so I simply slip my handguns into the slots and it neatly stacks my guns in a neat verticle row. Works perfectly.

A couple of 2x4s and a length of 1" dowel should do it.....and you can stain it so it matches your dresser!
