Hiding in Plain Sight: Furniture to Hide Your Guns
Custom-made furnishings that look great while concealing firearms and other valuables.
SO COOL! das
Posted August 15, 2014 in Shooting, Survival by Russ Chastain

Guns are great. They just are. They’re valuable tools in a pinch, and they need to be there when you need them. In your home, it’s great to keep one or more guns handy, and it’s wise to keep them out of sight. Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot more furniture that functions and looks like “regular” furniture while doubling as a hiding place for firearms.

Wow! I want that little wall shelf! I keep mine kind of hiding in my CC handbag on a shelf.....but that is not the best because it's the first thing a robber would steal. That shelf would be awesome!

The Couch Bunker is an awesome idea. It looks like it has a ton of storage but I'd just have to test-nap it first to make sure it's up to everyday usage.

I wonder if the cushions can stop a 338 Lapua. Ninja
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Only if you stack 300 cushions together.

Here's one I made a long time ago.

Here's the thread on pafoa with "how to" instructions.

I have an idea for a rifle as well, but hesitate to post it publicly.

The Kleenex box wouldn't work here because it would flip up off the gun anytime a kid yanked a tissue out. It's cool though.

Nope. It's completely functional and works just fine so long as you don't have the tissues pushed all the way up against the top. I've used it when the "real" tissue box has run out.

But yeah, maybe not the way kids tend to do things. Wink

If I did it again, I'd leave even more tissues in it.


To cover a larger handgun, one of those tacky tissue box covers is ideal. I found one that the G19 will fit under.

I'm sitting here at the dining room table typing on my laptop and looking for ideas/concepts that I may have overlooked for hidden firearm locations when it hit me - the CHAIR I'm sitting on would be ideal.

Our dining room table/chairs is very similar to this...

The wooden "skirting" around the seat of the chair creates a recessed area about 3" deep on the bottom of the chair - same with the table actually.

There are a multitude of gadgets on the market that can be purchase to mount weapons in locations like this, or homemade solutions could be whipped up relatively easily.

I'm sure this isn't an original idea, but it's one I haven't come across as I searched for ideas.

You could get a custom kydex holster made with spots for screws to go through and just screw it right to the bottom of the chair in an orientation that makes for easy draw.

That's actually probably the best solution for a chair mount if it's going to be on a chair that gets used/moved in order to keep it securely in place.

I may have to look for someone who makes that sort of thing. Wonder if something in Kydex could be made to mount a long gun under the table?


My mind started working on ideas the other day after there was a home invasion very nearby. Having firearms locked up in a safe doesn't help much if you need one quickly.
Not that I fear someone targeting us and breaking in - I'm not a drug dealer like the people it happened to, but you never know where those armed thugs end up when they start running from the police.

Something handy, but not just lying out in the open would be nice.
