    Storage/Safe Dilemna

    Are there any realistic safe means of storing Home defense rifles and shotguns in ones bedroom aside from a traditional gun safe. I was hoping somone made a gun safe for under you bed but I googled it and couldnt really find anything, so my next thought was well how about a very large locking gun case that I could secure to the bed, but still cant find anything. Anyone have any ideas?

    There are plenty of ways to conceal one. Fake full length mirrors, little hooks that fit under the mattress and are covered by the sheet. To be secured rather than just concealed, maybe one of the "lifejackets", maybe modify a lock mechanism like in an LEO vehicle, or maybe a cable-lock of some kind. That's a tough one.
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

    I have a small Stack-on on the shelf of my bedside table. It was a cheap table that my wife thru a cover on and the safe is covered. Still easy to get to and the two guns are under lock. Hope this helps.

    you could always use a Bedbunker

    You can try an "anchor" type product such as these, which lock the mid-section of the long gun and anchor the butt end:



    With some of these, you can take up space at the end of a closet. Take out the drywall section behind where the firearms will be mounted; install a couple of narrow 3/16" sheets of steel that will form the mounts to which the bolted rack/lock will go; drywall/paint the area; then, mount the rack/lock as if it were a normal device. Very sturdy, and much stronger than simply bolting the rack/lock units to the underlying 2x4" studs behind the drywall.

    1300 pounds for the Queen size? I hope you aren't planning on moving that bed to clean or rearrange the room. Ground floor bedroom with a concrete slab house only is my guess.

    $3700 is pretty steep.

    You could always go with an in-wall safe in the closet or hang a mirror in front of it.

    Here's something to consider about such a unit that's lying on its back: Any doors that are light enough to lift open are almost certainly light enough to be pried open.

    Pass. A traditional safe for me ... whether stuffed into a closet, camouflaged, or built into the foundation/walls for maximum access control.
