There are many reasons why people want to hide their guns. For instance, some of them are worried that their kids may found the stash of weapons and hurt themselves. Others don’t want their friends to see that they have guns or get tempted to steal some of their precious guns. There are also people who want to avoid problems when police officers come to their home. In any case, what they need is a great and safe place to hide their hands. If you are in a situation like this, keep reading because we are about to present a short list of places like this.
- The laundry hamper
It doesn’t matter if we are talking about kids, friends or thieves, no one wants to check what’s inside your laundry hamper. This is the reason why they are so good for hiding things including guns. Just place the gun in a bag and put it inside. You can also use a liner and put the gun in the liner. You can use this trick if you are outside your home in a hotel too.
When we are talking about hiding places, we should also mention that some of them are suitable for short-term storage while others are good for long-term storage. When it comes to the second option, we can highly recommend ducts or A/C vents. In most cases these vents and ducts are placed high and in order to reach them, you will need a ladder or a stool. On top of that, these ducts can be found all over the house, so you can choose where you want to place them. You can put the guns in a case for more security.
- CD wallet
Your living room is usually not the ideal place to hide guns, but there are some solutions that have proven to be successful. CDs were very popular and even expensive in the past, but today they are not very attractive, so no one cares (even thieves) when they see a CD wallet. This is the reason why you should place your gun inside a CD wallet. Of course, this solution is short term and a CD wallet has limited capacity (usually for one handgun).
We have seen this solution in the popular TV show Breaking Bad and it seems that it works. This is another area that is usually not used by your kids; friends and thieves are not interested in your food either. Even if you put the guns in the freezer it should not affect the functionality of your weapons.
- Toilet’s tank
While we are talking about solutions inspired by movies, we must mention the tank of the toilet as a hiding place. The only thing that should be taken into consideration is the moisture inside the tank, so wrap the handgun a few times before placing it inside because the water and the moisture can damage the ammo and the gun.
