The most effective defensive weapons you can own, without question, is a gun. A gun can be an equalizer in terms of an attack and could even be an advantage in a home invasion. A gun is suggested by many as a primary weapon for a home and self-defense.
Owning any gun for any situation comes with a huge amount of responsibility.
Two very contradicting challenges often arise with gun owners:
- All Guns Must Be Kept Hidden, Secure and Safe.
- A Gun Needs To Be Easily Accessible If needed In A Situation.
For obvious reasons – any gun needs to be kept hidden secure and safe is so that children or guests cannot find them and use them when in your household
At the same time, your guns also need to be kept easily accessible so you can get to them quickly in the event of a life-or-death emergency.
Ideally, guns should be carried on the person – however, this cannot be done – should you have a barrage of gun power. So easier said than done. In this post, we offer a few ideas on where and how best to hide your firepower.
So long as you have any pottery pieces that are large enough to hold a handgun, you can very easily stuff one in there. Be sure to wrap the gun in a towel before placing it into the pottery, so it will still remain hidden if anybody looks inside out of curiosity.
Under The Wooden Floors
Cut into your wooden floors so you are able to lift up a piece. You can then stash a gun in there for hiding. Be strategic about where you make the cut; underneath or right next to a table or couch would be ideal.
Underneath Your Couch
This is a great spot for longer guns like rifles or shotguns. As many couches have fabric covering underneath them. Simply cut a slit in the fabric to store your weapon underneath it. No one would be the wiser!
Build or buy a box picture frame. Selecting a rather ordinary or drab-looking photo/painting to put in the frame so no burglar will be compelled to take it would also be a good idea!
This is always a good spot and depending on how creative you are you can adapt If you have got two corner cabinets below a counter in that little space that usually doesn’t get used the pack in there. You could also strap a gun to the underside of the counter where it can’t be seen and where you can only get to it if you open a cabinet and reach inside.
Framed Raised Mirror
Who would think twice about looking behind a mirror – Raised just enough the framed mirror gives you the perfect hiding spot for your firepower. A few can be bought that are locked and unlocked by using a strong magnet to disengage the locking mechanism.
Washing Machine or Dryer
This is a great idea as most Washers and Dryers have ample of free space in the frame of the machine. It is great if for any reason someone comes in with a metal detector to search and confiscate weapons (like in a Martial Law) but could be a little more difficult to reach with ease.
