Default Wall hooks for pistols

I would like to hang some pistols on the back wall of my safe. I am going to put a sheet of plywood against the back wall and would like to hang pistols on it flat. Anyone know what kind of hooks that would be best to use?? Pics of your setup???

How many pistols did you want to hang?

These work great: http://www.amazon.com/Gun-Storage-So.../dp/B0068NHG7S

Or, you can get a door organizer.

I want to hang them flat against the wall. I do NOT want to stick a metal rod down the barrel

Just talked with a friend, and they did something very similar to this (which is where he got the idea, but hangs pistols on the side of the safe): http://www.northeastshooters.com/vbu...-interior.html

I use these to hang pistols from the door of my safe. Use a couple for each pistol and you can make a nice layout.

Have you seen grid panels? They use them for display fixtures and lately garage organizer walls. There are assorted types of hooks, brackets, etc, most are already coated.

They also have slatwall which is made of wood.
Don't know if you have a Harbor Freight near you but they also have peg board hooks and the plastic dip-it material.
Just my .02˘.
Happy building.

Not exactly that size, but the same design from Lowes. Depending on how thick your sheet of wood will be you might need to get one with longer thread area.
I slipped on a large washer and a nut until it locked at the end of the threads on the bolt. I slid it in through the hole I drilled on the plywood (in my case very thin sheet of cement board) then sild another washer on the bolt and secured it with another nut. So a washed and nut on each side of the wood. Before I installed them I dipped them in PlastiDip that I bought from Lowes http://www.lowes.com/pd_42518-61158-...dip&facetInfo=
coating it a total of 3 times. Because of the washer and nut on one end it kind of raises the ends so the pistol fits in there tightly.
The peg board idea is nice, but i can imagine the pistols banging against the door when you swing it open. My way they fit in the perfect. They dont scratch the pixstol and they dont move at all when you swing the door open =)
That's the same thing I do with the wooden spools.
