Hidden Storage in Home


We've put together a sweet little roundup of badass gun storage solutions, and we wanted to share some of it.

A gun hidden behind a picture frame is just one of the many creative ideas for secret gun storage. Look around the house: a shelf or any extra space can actually become a storage area for your firearm.

Now multiply that with the number of rooms in your home. From the master bedroom to the living room, study room to the bathroom, your basement and your garage, it is almost limitless.

Oh, and there’s the attic, too.

Gun Concealment Picture Frame Storage Idea

Because it’s a free country and your circumstances may not be the same as somebody else’s, the place you decide to use for gun storage is entirely up to you. We can only give some ideas that may inspire you to start your own secret little project.

You Will Need:

  • A picture frame big enough to hide your firearm of choice
  • 2 wall mounts
  • 2 Brackets
  • A screwdriver
  • A hammer

Step 1: Mount the Brackets

Mount two brackets into the picture frame using a 1-3/8” wide drill bit for a perfect circle to inlay the cabinet style bracket. It only needs to be 3/4” deep.

This allows the picture to open upward without hitting the wall and yet being flush when closed.

Note: We recommend drilling a hole 1/4” or just slightly more from the edge. Not just for strength purposes, but when closed, the 1/4” board used as backing will fit perfectly inside so the picture is flush against the wall.

Step 2: Install Wall Mounts

Mount to wall using wall mounts. Hammer two J hooks (use your judgment) into the wall a decent length apart to support the weight of the rifle.

Step 3: Add Motion Detectors

Add motion detectors to the inside of the picture frame to set an alarm in case your hiding spot is disturbed!

Additional Hidden Gun Storage Ideas

1. Go Underground

Start at the basement or cellar. You can also dig a hole in the garage or garden and bury your firearm.

What is important to remember is to put the gun in an airtight container especially if you want to hide it there for a long time.

2. Use the Vents

These are usually located in accessible places which are a plus. You just need a chair or a table to reach your gun after removing the vent cover.

If you use a ladder, members of the household namely your children will start asking questions.

3. Old Boxes in the Attic

Use one that does not stand out and label it with something that does not make anyone curious. Just make sure the temperature is regulated to avoid exposing it to heat or moisture.

4. A Large, Old Coat in the Closet

The pockets should be big enough to conceal a pistol or revolver. It should be a coat that nobody will ever think of wearing.

5. Stereo Speakers

We are talking about the old sound systems whose speaker boxes are easy to open and spacious enough for small guns and rifles.

Gun storage isn't just about choosing the proper safe. It's also about location and concealment that gives the gun owner quick access to his/her firearms without creating a situation where the wrong person can find their stash.

Guns are necessary for protection but you can't be too careless when you own one.

    Ever think about hiding a ‘well wrapped’ long gun or handgun in your gutters? Who’s going to look there? And how about using an old disused smoker in the back yard to hide multiple ammo cans? Put a pistol wrapped in a bunch of rags under your work bench. Hide them (again, well wrapped) in your dry dog food bin. Vacuum sealed in the freezer? in the water heater closet? I could go on for days.
