wood could hold moisture ( though the room is humidity controlled... on my other racks, the wood is not contained within the barrel ) ... & I'm just not sold on the plastics... for example, my Automag 4 with an 8" extended barrel, & grip scope mount, & a good quality burris scope, is pretty heavy, & could put a fair amount of leverage on the rod... even if the plastics could hold the weight & leverage, I'd be concerned over time, it could warp, & if I were not paying attention, warp enough to drop the pistol off the wall...

why not plastic coated steel ??? get the rigidity of cold rolled steel, with the benifits of the plastic on the surface... the heat shrink tube is by design very durable, & thin, with the chem resistant type, seems like the perfect coating...
