    Top Shelf Way To Hide A Gun In Plain Sight

    I saw this while checking around for a way to hide a gun either behind a wall picture frame or in a clock, etc. I came across this and just had to share it.

    That's pretty cool. It reminds me of a secret room a college buddy's dad had. We went into a downstairs pantry...he moved a can and pushed a secret buttoon. The entire wall of shelving swung open to reveal a relatively large room, maybe 15x8 or so. All of the walls were just covered with every kind of firearm imaginable from vintage to new. There were also 3 large safes in there...can only imagine what he had. I wouldn't mind having one of those cabinets.

    I have something similar in my house, except that it leads to another room, about 6'x13'. I've managed to keep mine secret.

    Don't tell anyone.

    I see one other issue: I would opt for manual operation, or at least some sort of manual override. Electric motors are great for showing off, but they don't work without electricity. And if the power's out, there's a good chance that the room might be needed.

    As a woodworker i find that very interesting. I might have to go to my wood shop and start building something.

    Neat, but yeah, I agree...it would be much better to have something that opens manually. There's no reason you couldn't build a very hidden mechanical latch system.

    Fascinating video, very artistic, both the furniture and the presentation.

    Slick.

    Worth 3 minutes to watch it even if it (no doubt?) is way out of budget and decor of your home.

    Interesting. They have a bunch of hideaway designs for hidden shelfs, safes, and rooms....No indication of cost, though. I expect if you can afford their custom cabinetry, you can afford a secured generator with a month's worth of fuel.

    Pretty cool.
    But I'm guessing that a large, bolted-down, fire-proof gunsafe would probably cost about the same.

    Having done some woodwork and knowing several carpenters, I can say that's one slick piece of furniture.

    Have you seen this item? I think they are working on a lockable one, but for know, this is a great way to conceal plenty of things at home.

    Way, way, way overpriced (about 10 times) for what it is. It's not even metal, it's wood - and doesn't come with a lock! Note the disclaimer at the bottom of the page: * THESE PICTURE FRAMES ARE INTENDED FOR CONCEALMENT PURPOSES ONLY. THEY ARE NOT A SECURITY DEVICE.

    A useless item, IMHO.
