    My safe came with one measly shelf and the rifle racks are too high for most of my rifles. I was hoping someone could tell me if there was a place I could buy shelves and racks for my safe. If not, then maybe a site which would tell me how to make my own. Many thanks in advance.

    What kind of safe? and I take it they aren't adjustable?

    Most safe's that I've seen just use 1/2"-3/4" particle board covered with carpet/fabric. Shouldn't be too hard to craft your own with a jigsaw and staple gun (or some glue).

    Alternatively, you could install a false bottom in your safe to effectively raise your rifles up so that they can reach the rack.

    I put a 2x4 on one side of my safe bottom to sit my shorter rifles on, but I only have 3 that need it. The false bottom would be better for more shorties.

    Another option would be to pick up some wooden dowel rods to drop down the barrels to "extend" the barrels.

    Just a thought.

    Use a shelf beneath the rifle rack to adjust the new "floor" to the proper height for your rifles. Use the space beneath it for additional storage.

    A simple shelf/stand is a good idea. Ammo or accessories underneath FTW. I might do that myself.
