This got me thinking that it might be a good idea to have some guns stashed about in handy, but secure places.
There would be several good reasons to do this:
1) They are more easily at hand in case of an emergency.
2) Burglars would have a greater challenge. Plus they could activate a secondary security system.
3) I love hidden rooms and compartments!
Using the simple idea as depicted, creating a simple drawer could be done in many locations. It's height need only be two inches to contain most firearms. This kind of compartment could be integrated into furniture, counter cabinets, bars, shelves and even walls with the right location.
--I will have to look at this idea more closly. Might be a project!
