  • Patent number: 4139100
    Abstract: A gun rack which comprises a vertical row of vertically spaced clamp-shaped barrel supports and a vertical row of stock supports spaced laterally from respective barrel supports. Each pin is fixed at one end to the gun rack frame and adapted to pass through the trigger guard of a gun mounted thereon. The free ends of the pins extend through openings in a vertical locking bar and are angled downwardly for biasing the bar downwardly and thus urge a locking tongue on the lower end of the bar into a vertical aperture provided in the outer end of a locking lug which extends outwardly from the frame in vertical alignment with the pins, whereby to remove the bar it must be elevated upwardly against the cumulative resistance of the pins, thus inhibiting removal by a child. The bar is primarily secured by a lock which has its hasp extended through alignable apertures in the upper end of the bar and an upper securing lug extending from the frame.
