    Concealed or disguised handgun safe?

    Not sure if this is the proper place for this thread so apologies if so, but Iím in the market for a handgun safe that is disguised as something else, i.e. a clock, mirror, framed picture, wall shelf, etc. My gun safe is at the opposite end of my home and I would like to keep my pistol locked in my bedroom; something easily and quickly accessible but also a quality product. Anyone have any first hand experience with something like this and can recommend something? Thanks.

    The problem with a lot of those *hiding in plain sight* pieces of furniture is the bad guys get the same internet you do, and sense they don’t have to work like the rest of us the can spend more time looking at those items. There are some really cool pieces of furniture that might not be so conspicuous, but just like a safe you are just buy time. The best advice I was given on this subject was put everything in the safe except the gun you carry everyday and when you are awake wear it. If you you have kids stashing it in a drawer at night is probably not prudent but somewhere close to your bed but out of reach is probably you best and cheapest option. I personally like some of the night tables with false bottoms and sides. But a good magnet mounted to the back of your headboard is probably just as effective.

    Bingo. Kids are the main issue here so stashing it in my night stand is not an option. This gun in not concealed carry and stays in the home.

    Iím less worried about thieves breaking in because we live in a good neighborhood (I know any house in any neighborhood can get broken into though) and we have an alarm. This would be more as a disguise to fool family and friends.

    All the other guns and valuables will remain in the big safe

    Why not a speed safe in a closet or bolted to a dresser or bed frame?

    I bought two of these last year when they were on sale at Costco for 60 bucks I think.

    Another cheap option is a homak wall safe, I put on in at my old house. Super easy to install, can be defeated with enough time and a pry bar but should keep your kids out of harms way.

    Besides that, you may want to look into tactical walls

    Actually, those all make sense for different spots in the master closet instead of bedside. Iíll look into some of these.

    Would something like this work? I haven't had any experience with one but they look interesting.

    That could work but I think I like the Speed Vault biometric safe a little better so I can hide it in the closet. I also like the way the gun is presented when the safe opens

    I have the non-biometric speed vault, and it fits my glock 19 perfectly. Has two modes (quiet or beeps), and has a light in the inside so when the drawer drops down, its illuminated. I like it a lot. And for the price it couldn't be beat (costco). The mount can be mounted against a wall, but I also believe you can mount it from the top also, which would allow you to screw it into the underside of a desk. The foam holds your gun in there snugly also. Overall I like it quite a bit. But I have large safes within reasonable distances of where I'm normally at at home.
