So... I bought a couple of...
The wall clocks that will hold a firearm from Sportsman's Guide.They are all wood construction and quite well made. All in all a very attractive clock with an added attraction inside. I figure they are uncommon enough to be fairly safe storage for a ready handgun. One in the bathroom and one in the kitchen.Anybody else??

The only problem I see is when the crackheads break into your house and go to vandalize it. I can see the look of amazement on their face when they knock the clock off the wall and a gun falls out.

I have seen those in the sportsmans guide for quite a while now...I think I might try it after the kids are much older...
I hope they work well for you...a good home defense plan puts a firearm on every floor you 'live' on...cause you never know where you might be when a BG decides to come knocking.

Seems like it could work...certainly 'out of sight, out of mind'.

Interesting idea. I keep my handgun on me but I guess having another one stashed couldn't hurt!

Nifty idea. I don't have any kids, so this looks like it would work pretty well.

Unless you mount it on a stud with some 3" wood screws...

very interesting! thanks for posting.
War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

I do have a 13 year old, but I take him shooting with me. I mounted the clocks securely to studs and they are 6' up the wall.They could have been priced at $139 and would have seemed worth the price. There is also enough room for some other items inside too.Sportsman's Guide is very gun friendly. Chuck.

I don't have one of the clocks, but have considered getting one or two.
I have been dealing with Sportsman's Guide for many years and they are great. Customer service, quck shipping and good prices. I have outfitted myself for several hunting trips and excursions with their "guide gear" branded items and have never been disappointed. Most of my hunting clothes, boots etc. come form them at less than half of what Bass Pro or Cabelas would cost. Good deals on military surplus and ammo too.
I am not afiliated with them in any way. Just a happy customer.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
