There’s lots of reasons to hide your guns in the house. Having kids is a big one along with guests coming over to the house. If your home gets robbed these types of stash points in the house provide safe keeping for guns, ammo, and other valuable items. And let’s be honest, having a secret cache of weapons hidden in plain sight is pretty cool too. I’ve scoured the internet to track down the best hidden gun storage furniture for all your weapons and ammo.
1.) Cabinet Rifle Slider – This is the perfect cabinet for rifles and blends in nicely in any standard American style home. This is a cabinet with a front display and a hidden gun storage slider in the back. The sliding portion of the cabinet locks securely. The front shelves are adjustable and make a nice display for anything you want to put inside. Most rifles and shotguns will fit in the storage compartment although extra long guns will be a tight fit. The material appears to be a pressed wood but the finish is good quality and hard to tell it’s not real wood from a distance. Overall a great cabinet for your ammo and rifle storage. Check it out here.
2.) Gun Storage Bench – This is the American Furniture Classics 502 gun storage bench. High quality attractive bench for a great price. Full leather bench with hinged locking top revealing your secret stash of weapons. Lot’s of storage space and sturdy enough to be used as an actual bench. Easily stows any rifle you can throw at it plus a ton of ammo and whatever else you can think of. Again, very rustic and traditional looking. Wouldn’t blend in well with a modern home but for a house with traditional furniture nobody would suspect a thing. I like the fact this thing locks and there’s no way to tell it’s a secret gun storage compartment without looking too closely. The price on this bench too good to pass up.
3.) Gun Cabinet Armoire – A good looking mirror armoire with a carefully concealed storage area right behind your very own reflection. Perfect for the bedroom and completely unsuspecting. Comes with 2 locking methods – A magnet locking device or your traditional lock and key hardware. The height of this mirror is 42.5 inches so longer rifles will have trouble fitting. However, most rifles will but make sure to measure the length of your rifle before purchasing.
4.) Covert Cabinet Gun Shelf – My favorite piece of furniture for stashing a couple pistols along with a few magazines. Mounts to the wall like a normal shelf. There’s a hinged portion which drops down revealing the stash. No need to remove the things on top of the shelf to gain access. This is great if you need fast access to your guns. Locks securely via a magnetic lock and key. You’re not going to be stashing your entire arsenal in this thing but it’s perfect for 1 – 2 guns plus a few mags. Take a look for yourself.
5.) Covert Guitar Case – Furniture? Maybe not. But it’s still a fantastic and genius way to stash your high powered rifles. Nobody suspects a guitar case of containing guns and ammunition. The case itself features a 4 pin combo lock. The interior is well padded with foam surrounded by a hardened shell case. Not to mention this is an easy piece of gun storage you can grab. In the case of a robbery you can run with the guitar case to a safe part of your home and take your time unlocking the guns. Also an inconspicuous method to transfer your guns from one place to another without revealing what you have.
6.) The Peace Keeper – Or as I like to call it, the piece keeper! A fully functioning clock with a secret stash capable of holding a large hand gun and some other goodies. Nobody takes a second glance at a clock unless it’s to check the time, and we use smartphones for that nowadays. The clock looks completely natural no matter where you put making this one of the most incognito pieces of hidden gun storage furniture. Store your Glock in the clock!
