Does anyone have plans for a lazy susan-style rotating gun rack?

I made something similar from this site. It is not lazy susan style though. It is free standing and mobile. It turned out pretty good.

And on a 1/4" garden hose to boot. 8-)

Those are nice plans. What I would add to the top support is a small rare earth magnet to hold the barrel.

If you magnetize the barrel you will get a major reduction in FPS out of that rifle.

Yeah, I couldn't see those plans from work.

Turns out it's a moot point; I thought I could maybe build one for inside my safe to make it easier to get the long guns in and out, but my safe is only 12" deep inside once the door is closed, and that's not enough room to have guns bladed around a disc base.
