After my review of the Original Handgun Hanger, the nice folks at Gun Storage Solutions sent me a few more of their handgun hanging solutions. Included in the goody bag were the Back-Under, the Back-Over, and the Over-Under. The Back-Under and Back-Over are both designed for the back side of a shelf in a safe while the Over-Under is designed for the front side. All three work very well and help take advantage of unused storage space . . .
I find it hard to write a whole bunch about something that amounts to bent wire coated in plastic, but these are just the thing if you want to open up some storage space in your safe. Above, you can see how slim the Over-Under is, while still being very stable. This is a great fit for those shelves in the safe that have some space above them that isn’t really utilized. I’d also think that for a shallow shelf, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better storage solution. More pictures of the Over-Under are below.
The back of the shelf models allow you an above-the-shelf (Back-Over) and below-the-shelf (Back-Under) solution. I preferred using both of these on a deeper shelf I have towards the top of my safe. Obviously, you set the hanger in place once, and sort of forget about it as you have to pull the shelf out to put the hangers in. What both back-of-the-shelf solutions allow is the ability to fully utilize the dark depths of your safe that normally go unoccupied. Again, this is an awesome functionality that allows you to stay with a smaller safe longer before you have to upgrade.
The only issue I was able to identify with the hangers: some of the coating has peeled back allowing it to rust. None of the other hanger items I have exhibit this issue. I’m inclined to believe it’s a one-off, though I’m gong to strip it back further, sand it, and hit it with some black Krylon before it spreads further. I’d be much more concerned if this existed on a part of the hanger that my pistols would touch, but it was shelf side so I wasn’t too concerned.
The Back Under is priced at $10.76 for a pack of 2 from Amazon, the Back Over is $10.99 for the same 2 pack, and the Over Under will run you $19.95 for a two pack. Paired up with the original Handgun Hanger, you can custom tailor any number of solutions to your pistol storage woes.
