Quick-Access Pistol Safe on the Wall by the Door
I didn't want to hijack this thread:
....so I'm starting this one. I hope it's in the right forum. The thread above is about some folks getting home invaded by innocent looking visitors knocking on the door. So I started thinking about this. What about a quick-access safe mounted on the wall near your front door? It could be very innocuous looking but provide a fast way to access the "piece" if someone comes to the front door unexpectedly.
I suppose the one problem with the idea is that most pistol safes are designed for you to lay the gun down inside horizontally. I'm sure that this could be easily solved with a little creative thinking.
And while we're on the subject, does someone already make something like this. either mechanical (which I prefer) or electronic?
