    Molle Panel for Gun Safe Door

    I have the smallest Liberty Revolution rifle "safe" in our closet with an AR and pistol in it because our bedroom is on the second floor and my big "safe" is on the first.

    Like all the small cheap safes, the interior layout is pretty spartan and there are no logical spaces to put magazines, holsters, flashlight, etc. They sell door panels, but $100 for a panel to put in my $200 safe seems pretty high.

    Enter the surplus molle "seat panel" - example here: https://armysurpluswarehouse.com/mil...l-acu-digital/

    I plan to put a panel on the safe door with screws/washers, add a cheap molle holster, and some of the mag/utility pouches I have laying around collecting dust.

    I would welcome your thoughts, better ideas, etc.

    Please don't turn this into a debate about "gun safes". We all know they suck.

    Thanks

    Andy

    I'm not sure where you come up with $100.00 a panel. for that size Liberty lists them for $49.99, they are also available on Amazon for around that price:

    I kind of run the same way, my big safes are away from the master bedroom so I have a Liberty Pro Vault from Cabela's in the bedroom.

    On my bigger safes the door panel holsters seem nice and sturdy, I keep 2 loaded 30 round mags in one, a snug to be sure, but no seams are ripping out, etc.

    The mesh pocket will hold mags, as will the choke tube pouch. I can't speak to the durability of the mesh pockets loaded with mags because I don't use them for pistol mag storage in my bigger safes.

    Suddenly I felt the need for one of these for the bedroom safe, thanks. I ordered from Amazon, it will be here December 3, I'll let you know what I think.

    I obviously have not priced the Liberty panels lately or I was looking at a larger size. $50 for a good solution is more attractive than $30 (ish) for a cobbled together one.

    I am interested to hear what you think of the panel. If it's decent, I know what to put on my wife's X-Mas shopping list.

    The "Door of Doom" is a good idea, especially when you combine it with cheap surplus holsters and mag pouches from a gun show.

    Just be careful about optics, so that you do not damage a lens. Hasn't happened to me, just pointing out the glaringly obvious. Which some people overlook.
