Running out of room in the Gun Safe - MODIFICATIONS?

So I tried a search for the term "Gun Safe" and this search engine ignores "Gun" and I get 16000 hits on "safe"... not very smart or useful.

What I have is a gun safe with the typical barrel notches in a horseshoe shape left right and back for long gun storage.

I have all notches filled and then some.
AR15's are safe hogs because of the pistol grip and carry handle and my A2 was always tipping out.
I added bunji cords to keep the barrels in the notches.
I also got a browning velcro kit that lets you hang small, light, thin items on the back of the upholstered door without drilling holes

Now what I am wanting to do is place some upholstered spacers across the middle to allow maybe one 2 or 3 additional rifles to be stored muzzle down. I thought of a simple fixed dowel pin vertically on each side with the spacer having holes that simply slip over the dowel. Easy on/off and easy access to the rear of the safe.

Anybody have any useful modifications for the inside of their safe?
Or any websites that sell safe accessories?

I made some room by taking the bolts out of the guns and leaving them on the shelf above the rifles. You have to remember the bolt when you get the gun out of the safe but that should happen with the safety check.

Try +gun +safe The plus or minus signs will force inclusion or exclusion of a search term.

A long time ago someone inquired about the Blue Point Bullet company. I searched and got hundreds of sites about cats. This happened because "Blue Point" is a type of Siamese cat and Bullet is a common name for cats so I altered my search to exclude a search term +blue +point +bullet -siamese which removed the cat related sites. Never did find anything about the company but it was an educational moment in false positive results.

That's a good idea, and easily fabricated.
