    Hidden stairs gun safe is the most innovative idea that I liked. Amazing to know about it.

    I’m far more interested in quick access if someone comes through the door, hidden too much is the same as a safe. In or near furniture more important

    When I did a full kitchen refurb for a fellow, I made several suggestions, which he took up. Before the refurb, the areas above his cabinets were all open, I enclosed them and put trim on them to add to the end look. I framed one of the large ones so long items could be stored it in, then added hidden hinges and magnetic catches.

    He’s able to store his prized, grandaddy’s old gun in it, and shows it off regularly. 🙂

    A VERY important thing to think about, when choosing the “hidden in plain site” method you’re going to use, is, which items are vandal type thieves likely to discover in the course of destroying things?

    Many thefts are not rings of thieves. Rather, they are mentally ill, dirt bag opportunist who entertain themselves with destruction of other people’s things.

    As such, items that can take a hit and be revealed for what they are may be the best bet. Things like false wall sections held on via rare earth magnets.

    I built a huge secret storage area over a hot water tank. Because of the design of the bath trim and such, you can’t tell it’s there, unless you pull on the trim and an edge. If you do, the panel comes loose and reveals a 3′ square storage area formerly wasted.

    That secret storage does double duty – it also provides access to the tank top from inside, once the shelf is removed, rather than from the outside.

    An easier place that no burglar or anybody would assume would act as a safe is a simple piano bench. I’ve been hiding things in one for years without any issues.

    Felony in about 6 states, even if the compartment is empty. Google what happened to Norman Gurley.

      Norman Gurley was a known drug runner. The key to his story is that he had for the intent to store drugs and weapons, not licenced firearms. In the end you have to convince a judge that it was for legitimate purposes. Tougher to do if you’re and arse clown drug monkey.

    I saw a hot water heater converted into a hidden gun safe! Friggin’ cool as hell. I’d never have thought too look somewhere like that. But now I will … If you do find the perfect hiding place don’t tell anyone! Ever!

      If you are thinking of local teens or homeless types, most of these will likely work, although a lock on a fridge might stand out. However, jails and prisons are trade schools for thieves. You can bet that they keep an eye on subjects like how to conceal your guns. Once the idea reaches them, the experienced ones teach others what to look for as soon as they step into a room. Like that wall shelf with the hidden drop down that doesn’t seem natural where you installed it. Try to think like a thief. Does that wall mirror look like it would be where the resident would naturally use it, or would it be awkward to use where it is?

      There are some things which thieves, who are pressed for time, might skip. Baseboards, for example. Wall sockets, air vents in appropriate locations. tops of doors can be bored out to contain pill bottles. A safe is a really good distraction. If thieves find a wall safe for example in a linen closet, they may waste time trying to get it loose to open elsewhere. When they finally get it open and find it empty or containing worthless stuff it’s karma.

      If you have a gun safe, for example, make sure you change the code or combination regularly (every quarter or every 6 months), and clean the dial or keypad regularly. The reason is that over time using the same setting wears a pattern on the lock or pad. This reduces the amount of effort a thief required to pop it open. This goes along with don’t use birthdays, anniversaries, license numbers, SSAN, etc.
