Hidden Gun Storage Furniture

Gun Storage Bench

What do you think about secretly storing your firearms hidden in a soft-sided bench at the foot of your bed?

Check out the video for this affordable bench by American Furniture Classics.

This hidden gun bench not only looks great, is made out of solid wood, which makes it one of the best.

Because if a burglar sees your typical gun safe – what do you think goes through their mind?

They think “there’s something of value in there and I WANT IN”. They focus on the safe and work hard to pry it off your wall and take the entire thing with them.

If you’ve installed your gun safe correctly, they will fail. But they still know exactly where your firearms are located.

What do you think goes through an intruders mind when they pass a bookshelf, bench, or coffee table?

They won’t think anything of it. Nothing worth my time here, keep moving.

That’s the beauty of these high-quality hidden gun furniture locations.

Curio Cabinet Gun Safe

Now, here’s another excellent slider cabinet perfect for hiding your guns in your living room.

It includes a secret sliding storage location behind curio display. But hidden gun storage furniture is no good if the furniture sucks. 

But this slider curio cabinet includes a lite curio display area with glass shelves. And it’s a classic design that would fit in really well in millions of households across America.

That’s the key to hidden gun furniture, it’s got to function and look good as furniture, not just as gun storage.

Mirror Gun Safe

Do you keep your guns hidden in your master bedroom instead?

Then you got to check out this full-length mirror gun safe that will hide all your firearms such as rifles, handguns, and ammo.

Again, not only is the mirror designed to look natural and great in any bedroom, it can also be housing a small arsenal of your favorite firearms.

Several handguns, spare magazines, and a rifle will all fit in this incredible full-length mirror gun safe.

This next hidden guns safe furniture option is more for show than functionality, but you can’t deny that it’s impressive. It would certainly add a bit of flair to your gun concealment efforts.

Hiding Your Handguns and EDCs In Plain Sight


This next video also has both handgun hiding options and rifle options.

Smaller hiding locations are great because they function as a standard kitchen or office organizing tool. Caulk boards and magazine holders are not locations people think would have guns hiding in them.

Hiding a rifle behind a picture is a genius idea by using the interior wall space. The smaller options are slick as well. These are also all doable DIY projects for someone with a bit of knowledge.

But if DIY’s not your thing, here’s an affordable small hidden gun shelving system. This little shelf works great, looks great, and no one but you is the wiser.

How about stashing a stashing a gun in a wall clock?

With this concealment clock, you don’t even need to cut a hole in the wall.

You just move the hands to the unlock positions and push on the upper half.

The clock will hinge to expose a hidden compartment inside. Genius! 

Here’s another concealment clock option, a free-standing clock. This small clock can sit on your end table, just an arm’s length away, ready for action.

Plus, its constructed of engineered wood with a mahogany stain meaning it will fit with any classic home decor.

These fake air vents also make for excellent places to store a hidden firearm or two.

They look to be apart of the normal house construction.

There’s nothing about these air vents indicate they’re stashing a handgun and some ammo – they are simple diversion safe.

Or how about a concealed gun tissue box?

How about hiding a pistol underneath your desk or coffee table?

Maybe you like the idea of hiding your guns but worry about not being able to grab it fast enough from a hidden, locked compartment.

This option allows you quick access to a pistol hiding under your desk.

Finally, another option is to put this concealed weapon tissue box in your office or around your house.

If you have an issue, grab a tissue!

Note: I DO NOT recommend either the magnet or tissue box method if you ever have small children in your home. Children like to hide and play games under furniture and the tissue box is not locked.
