    That might defeat the purpose of having a SECRET hidden safe!

    Safes. . . lets see what you use.
    Obviously some folk are comfortable with this question. Tho i respond on what i own too much for online , i strongly feel a how dare you element to this question . Not only will you not see my safe , where it is , the combo , ect , but i am going to rethink posting pics of anything i have here .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    I'm saving up to buy this one in case of flood. This was posted here quite a while back and I was impressed.

    That reminds me of a dilemma a friend of mine had. He buried a safe in his basement floor, then welded rebar and poured concrete back up to the edges so it was flush. Several years later, a pipe broke and flooded his basement...

    I just purchased a "Stack On" gun safe from a local sporting goods store. It was on sale at an excellent price (to me anyway) and I feel that it serves the purpose I bought it for. My 11 y/o brother lives with me in my house and I just figured that the safe would be a lot better than the plastic boxes with a padlock that I had used before. I'm sure a professional could open this safe in no time, but the kids won't be able to.

    I also have two "Gun Vaults". One two gun version with the shelf that I keep a Glock 38 with tactical light and night sights on, and the other shelf is for my carry weapon while I'm in the sack. I also keep a couple of extra mags for each in there as well. The single vault is anchored with a 3/8" thick vinyl coated steel cable in my car. Sadly, there are quite a few places in Charlotte that are off limits, and I prefer to keep the carry weapon in a spot that is a little less likely the valet can just walk off with it.

    I like the convenience of a mechanical lock, but would worry about the machine not working in the event of an emergency. Thus, I'd get a "manual" lock. Works every time, no batteries to go bad.

    Yup, mechanical not electronic.

    I could take a picture, but all you would see is a cedar lined closet. I have to remove the clothing from the rod, then push and slide a panel of the wall.

    Back in the early 80’s my dad did something similar only you stepped in to that 2x2 area, work your way around the back wall of the closet, and it opened up into a hidden 6x12 room.

    And as other have stated, Golden Rods work great, been using one now for over 7 years, and no rust.

    This is mine, bolted down to a bookcase, with a user settable pushbutton combo. NO batteries to wear out... no keys to lose.

    Available from Cabela's:
