One of the great dilemmas is where to keep your guns so they are handy if you need them. We need to also ensure they are secure from children and burglars.
Most people keep them in safes. Safes in basements or garages. Not really handy at all. Some people believe that hiding firearms in secret stashes is better. I kinda like the idea.
The mantle clock gun case is one of these ideas. I saw this one on CheaperThanDirt.com for $39. There are also wall clocks and picture frames that do the same thing.
In my house I would be fine with these as my kids are old and responsible enough to allow them to be stored this way.
