I'm going to the PA shoot this Saturday and I think I'd like to have some sort of portable rifle rack. Something made out of 2x4's which can freestand and hold about 6 rifles. 3 on each side. It should be pretty easy to build but I'd like some ideas on the design. Has anyone made something like this? Show pics if you have made such a rack. Thanks.

How about making two H-shaped frames with a 3/4" hole drilled thru the tops of each of the vertical bars of the H. Run a short broomstick thru all 4 holes and then use a short length of chain to connect the two horizontal bars together so it doesnt collapse. Bicycle hooks (like the kind used to hang the bike from the ceilling of your garage) could then be placed on the vertical bars, 3 pairs of hooks on each side, to hold 6 long guns or 12 handguns.

I didn't design these nor do I play a designer on TV but I did remember seeing them a few weeks back. Use your imagination and these pics and you might like to build one of these. It looks like it folds up suitcase style. Rich314 posted this one.

I threw this one together with spare pine...

Used a doorknob hole bit to get the circular holes in the rest crosspiece, then hacked out the straights in the "U" shape with a band saw.

Thanks everyone. Ezra Coli, That looks perfect. I'll see if I can build one before this weekend.
