Well... I've decided to go with "real" wood on the walls... we have a local custom wood supplier, that is going to give me a really good price on some Hackberry tonge & groove in 8ft lengths any width ( up to 8" ), or an assortment if I want to randomize them... so I'm back to what hooks to use... though I"m thinking that adding board "rails" where the rifles hooks will screw could cut down alot on the holes into my paneling... could maybe have a router run over the edges to give these board a nicer, more finished look...

the Hackberry is a pretty light wood ( better for lighting ) with some dark contrasts, & I'm getting the more "rustic" grade, so I'll get a few knots & such for charictor... a couple coats of deck sealer & I should be good for starting to hang my rifles finally... been planning this room for close to 15 years...
