    Hey guys, I've gotten to a point where I'm going to need some locked storage options (outside of just locking a particular room). Sooo I'm looking into gun safes and really would prefer something concealed as opposed to a 500 lb huge box in my house or garage.

    I've been looking around online but really can't find anything that would fit my needs. What have you guys done or who have you used to find a gun storage solution in your home? Feel free to PM if need be.

    Wow. What a nice bookshelf. I saw once where an old soda machine was used as a safe. I like the conceal in plain site idea.

    I like the tactical wall idea, but can't find one that houses the number of long guns I would like to eventually own.

    if you have a fairly large closet, you can create a false wall. You large closet would now look like a regular sized closet, with the hanging clothes hiding the door to your storage.

    Have you considered the attic?

    If your home has two floors, then there is lots of room under the stair case. Just cut out some dry wall, make a safe space, then replace the dry wall panels on some hinges. Camouflage the cut-out with furniture or art work.

    You can store your ammo in kitchen cabinets. Just cover with paper bags and put your dishes/pots/pans on top. My favorite place is to disable the fire place, and build a shelf upon which to store some guns.

    If you want to cut into your walls, there are plenty of places to hide guns and ammo. Just make sure the cut-outs are not obvious.

    I found plans on line for a platform bed that was hinged about 2/3 of the way up from the end and supported by gas cylinder lifts like on your car. I cover the frame with a bed skirt and it completely conceals the fact that I have weapons stored under it. When I go out of town I add a small bracket between the underside of the top and the end of the frame secured with a couple of wood screws incase anyone would ever try to lift up the mattress.

    I am working on a house now that will have a cabinet that swings away to reveal a safe behind it. The safe is in a cubby hole that allows the cabinet to sit tight to the wall with a hidden hinge and latch.

    You could always go with the dummy safe idea also. One safe in your bedroom or wherever not bolted down but full of bricks. The real safe tucked away in a closet somewhere. By the time crooks lug out the dummy safe they will be too tired to find the real one.
