Guns in the Home: Firearm Concealment Devices
Gun safes are the most secure options for firearm storage, reducing the access unwanted hands may have for your guns with layers of steel and various locking mechanisms (digital keypad, combination, fingerprints, or a combination). However, those of us without little ones in the home have an additional option when considering how to stow our firearms: concealment.

In a similar vein as the diversion range bags we’ve mentioned previously, there are a host of clever options for “gun lockers” that provide homeowners with easy access to their self defense firearms concealed as unassuming household furniture elements. Using concealed storage can be as simple as a locked drawer in your kitchen cabinets to complex moving shelving units, as displayed in the video above.
Hollowed-out books, storage benches, clocks, or in-wall safes are only some of the pre-fabricated and custom-built solutions that you can utilize. Some of these firearm concealment devices, such as the hollowed out book, or secret compartments within home furniture pieces, can even lend themselves as projects for creative ‘do-it-yourselfers.’
