Why is hidden compartment furniture a great idea?
Well, whether your preferred home defense weapon is a rifle, shotgun or handgun, you probably don’t want to mount it on your wall as a trophy or leave it out in the open for anyone in your home to see. Not to mention that leaving a firearm unsecured and unsupervised is a terrible idea, especially if you have children in the home.
Additionally, the Bureau of Justice reports that roughly 1.4 million guns were stolen during household burglaries between 2005 and 2010. Law enforcement officials have also warned that large, conspicuous gun safes are usually more of a target than a deterrent for thieves. In fact, practically any half-way motivated criminal can make short work of many standard gun safes using nothing more than a crow-bar, some cordless power tools and a Google search.
Sometimes the best place to hide something is in plain sight, and that’s why hidden gun storage ideas are becoming so popular.
With a little bit of creativity, you can easily keep your guns and other valuables stored safely and securely, while keeping them completely out of sight and out of mind. Whether you’re looking for a hidden gun cabinet, gun shelves, or some other form of secret storage, nowadays there’s no shortage of types of furniture with hidden compartments.
