I tinker with the guns I have all the time, and for what I spend on this hobby its nice to find something thats cheap and works like a dream. Ive been trying to stuff too many AR 15/10s, Scar, chassis bolt guns etc into my gun safe. To make everything fit without laying on top of each other some are muzzle up and others muzzle down. Problem was the balance was pretty precarious. In comes soft tie, found 26' of the rubber coated wire on amazon for 6 bucks shipped on prime.
I drilled holes in the particle board and carpet/felt racks at the interval I wanted and fed through 12" sections of soft tie, maybe a little longer. A couple of free sections I can use to tie in other spots if needed. What this enables to do is fit more guns, into less space, without getting optics getting banged all for 6 bucks. Worth a shot if yall have the same problems. Now I can buy more guns to put in the extra space.
Another use for the heavier duty gear ties, improvised dope card holder and way to attach a shooting bag like a wiebad or game changer to your forend or chassis on the fly without an expensive arca rail etc. Great for shooting of barracades if you want to use your support hand for other things. Picked it up from a shooter who did real well at the K&M DMR Match.
Im sure other people have uses, post them up.
