Some Hidden Gun Inspiration

To kick things off, I want to introduce you to some of the vast possibilities.

This video will provide inspiration as you try to figure out the best way to hide your own guns in plain sight:

You must admit that hidden gun furniture technology and ideas have come a long way.

For example, these shelves not only look great, but they’re also functional. No one but you would ever know it’s full of firearms.

Guns are hidden, locked, and ready to go at a moment’s notice.

Here are more hidden gun furniture ideas from the team at Tactical Walls – experts in hidden gun storage.

Hidden Gun Storage Furniture

If a burglar sees your typical gun safe, what do you think goes through their mind?

They think, “there’s something of value in there, and I WANT IN.” They focus on the safe, work hard to pry it off your wall, and take the entire thing with them.

If you’ve installed your gun safe correctly, they will fail. But they still know exactly where your firearms are located.

What do you think goes through an intruder’s mind when they pass a bookshelf, bench, or coffee table?

They won’t think anything of it. Nothing worth my time here; keep moving.

That’s the beauty of these high-quality hidden gun furniture locations.

The Hidden Gun Storage Bench

What do you think about secretly storing your firearms hidden on a soft-sided bench at the foot of your bed?

Check out the video for this affordable bench by American Furniture Classics.

This hidden gun bench not only looks great, but it’s also made out of solid wood, which makes it one of the best.

Curio Cabinet Gun Safe

Now, here’s another excellent slider cabinet perfect for hiding your guns in your living room.

It includes a secret sliding storage location behind the curio display. But hidden gun storage furniture is no good if the furniture sucks. 

But this slider curio cabinet includes a lite curio display area with glass shelves. And it’s a classic design that would fit well in millions of households across America.

That’s the key to hidden gun furniture; it’s got to function and look good as furniture, not just as gun storage.

Secret Mirror Concealed Gun Safe

Do you keep your guns hidden in your master bedroom instead?

Then you got to check out this full-length mirror gun safe that will hide all your firearms, such as rifles, handguns, and ammo.

Again, the mirror is designed to look natural and great in any bedroom and can also house a small arsenal of your favorite firearms.

Several handguns, spare magazines, and a rifle will all fit in this incredible full-length mirror gun safe.

This next hidden gun-safe furniture option is more for show than functionality, but you can’t deny that it’s impressive. It would certainly add a bit of flair to your gun concealment efforts.

Hiding Your Handguns In Plain Sight

This next video also has both handgun hiding options and rifle options.

Smaller hiding locations are great because they function as standard kitchen or office organizing tools. Caulk boards and magazine holders are not locations people think would have guns hiding in them.

Hiding a rifle behind a picture is a genius idea using the interior wall space. The smaller options are slick as well. These are also all doable DIY projects for someone with some knowledge.

Small Hidden Gun Shelf

But if DIY’s not your thing, here’s an affordable small hidden gun shelving system.

This little shelf works great, looks great, and no one but you is the wiser.

Hidden Gun Wall Clock

How about stashing a gun in a wall clock?

With this concealment clock, you don’t even need to cut a hole in the wall.

You just move the hands to the unlock positions and push on the upper half.

The clock will hinge to expose a hidden compartment inside. Genius! 

Free Standing Clock Gun Storage

Here’s another concealment clock option, a free-standing clock. This small clock can sit on your end table, just an arm’s length away, ready for action.

Plus, it’s constructed of engineered wood with a mahogany stain, meaning it will fit with any classic home decor.

Fake Air Vent Handgun Storage

These fake air vents also make for excellent places to store a hidden firearm or two.

They look to be a part of the normal house construction.

Nothing about these air vents indicates they’re stashing a handgun and some ammo – they are a smart diversion safe.

Under Desk Gun Holder

How about hiding a pistol underneath your desk or coffee table?

Maybe you like hiding your guns but worry about not being able to grab them fast enough from a locked compartment.

This option allows you quick access to a pistol hiding under your desk.

Note: I DO NOT recommend the under-desk method if you have small children. Children like to hide and play games under furniture.

Hidden Gun Apparel

Do you like the idea of concealed carry but find it uncomfortable to have a gun in your waistband all day?

I don’t care how much padding your Hostler has; it will still get uncomfortable when worn for extended periods of time.

If this sounds like you, check out these comfortable American Tactical Apparel Battle Pants that solve this issue.

Hidden Gun Safe Wrap Up

I hope you got some great ideas on what is currently available and on the market for hiding your guns in plain sight.
