It doesn’t quite have the protection of a giant 1 ton gun safe, but then it simply won’t attract that level of attention, or any, and could go totally unnoticed in a home invasion.. Unless you can get to your guns and deal with it, of course.
A Tactical Advantage With Home Intruders
A hidden rifle safe as a back-up is a massive tactical advantage in a home invasion or robbery situation. It’s a fact of life that if they search then they’re going to find a big safe, but a second hidden one will never draw their eye and you can even use your other safe as a decoy if you’re that way inclined.

The SnapSafe by Hornady is a cost-effective hidden gun safe you can hang more or less anywhere thanks to the simple bracket. It’s also California Department of Justice approved.

This is a simple gun vault with a dropdown door that will give fast access to your firearm. It can also hang beneath a table, or fit inside a cupboard, and give you options for your hidden gun safe.
We’re not big fans of the safes with biometric locks you can find on Amazon and eBay. Do your own research on Youtube and you’ll see why.

4. Hornady Rapid Vehicle Safe
The Hornady Rapid Vehicle Safe comes with an inflatable bladder that conforms to your car. So you can fit it no matter what the model and this in-car gun safe has fast turned into the market leader.
You can power the safe through the 12v car charger adapter, or with 4 AA batteries, which makes it easy to keep this car gun safe powered up.
The Hornady Rapid Vehicle Safe exceeds ASTM standards and it comes with a wristband, which means only you can open your gun safe and get access to your firearm.

- Price: $34.99
Yes, it’s the classic hidden vent safe, brought bang up to date with a magnetic swipe card that pops it open with no effort. There are no biometic locks or anything clever, but the fact it hides in plain sight is a real winner for us.
It’s a quick access system that could be a lifesaver one day and a different kind of hidden gun storage.
It’s just a handgun safe in this form, the hidden compartment really isn’t that big, although you can certainly get longer vents and safes that could accommodate long guns.
Paint Your Secret Compartment For Camo Firearms Storage
This goes in to the wall in any room and you can paint it to blend right in. It’s a brilliant concept and a design that has stood the test of time. This is simple gun concealment, hiding in plain sight, but it is done well.

6. Tactical Walls End Table
This simple end table hides a dark secret, a stowaway drawer that is completely hidden that can contain at least two pistols and spare mags. This is storage furniture for home defense.

It isn’t the most secure gun storage and there is no fire rating. But it would take some kind of evil miracle for a thief to stumble upon your weapons in this coffee table, corner table, call it what you want. I’m not an interior decorator
Pack your guns in foam, don’t let them rattle around and this table is pretty much a secure gun locker. Is it one of the best gun safes? it isn’t quite the elite level, but with a completely different
We like the hidden gun storage
7. Biometric Gun Vault SV500
You know these little gun vaults by now, but have you thought what you can do to color code and blend them
They carry a single pistol and they need a little space to drop and let you access your firearm. But that’s it, apart from that you’ve got a free reign with
This is a great gun safe for by the bed, under the desk, inside the nightstand and well, just about anywhere else you want.
Make sure they’re properly bolted to furniture that cannot go anywhere, or preferably walls and
Do that and these gun vaults can be your secret weapons that make sure you always have access to a gun. A hidden gun under your desk, or your bed, could be the different between a serious home invasion and a story to tell your family one day.
Do Biometric Locks Work Now? Yes.
The biometric fingerprint readers are almost foolproof now, and you should be fine if you go the high-tech route. You can still order one of these vaults with a keycode access, though, if you want to go old-school and save a few bucks.
It isn’t so much gun concealment as gun security, because as long as this gun vault is properly fixed then nobody should be able to crack it except for you.
Of course it’s a single handgun safe, then, but it has fast marked itself out as one of the best quick release gun security devices in the world. Check out the Liberty Home Concealment vaults and safes too.
8. American Flag Wall Cover
It’s almost too perfect, the
It’s another Tactical Walls design secret compartment, too, in case you were wondering.

Natural Finish, Proper Modern Security
It’s a decorative wood finish, but it’s also locked. Wave your key card at the right place and it slides back to reveal three hidden compartments that are basically tailor-made for

With an outer shell produced from 14 gauge steel, this single handgun case exceeds all the international standards and is also TSA approved for travel.
That’s a big
The TSA can be notoriously difficult with firearms, for good reason we guess, and this case is absolutely approved and safe to travel with. The RFID locks work for you, the key for them.
That’s a big deal. Especially as the simple locking case is available from just North of $50. If you want the rapid access case then get ready to pay more, but that works with a keyfob, a wristband and a few other clever options.
If you use this case in the car, and as a bedside gun storage, and it can do both jobs perfectly well, then you need

You can store guns on top of cupboards, too, but you still want to keep them in a quick release safe so the wrong hands can’t get hold of your guns.
This simple, easy access one-gun vault can be secured anywhere and the
It’s also a secure place to store your concealed carry weapon. It’s a secret compartment, on demand.
Simple PIN Code Access For Technophobes
If you’re nervous about biometric access, this might be the answer. It’s a simple pin code, determined by finger pushes, and it’s arguably the most elegant solution while we iron out the remaining kinks in the biometric systems that are just occasionally known to reject greasy fingers.
Honestly we think we’re at the level now where this is more an urban myth than a reality, but the simple concern that your gun safe might lock you out is enough to sway some people towards a different approach. I get that…
Slimline, Subtle and Virtually Hidden
These gun safes are relatively slimline and stealth, but you can box them in, color code them and do all kinds of things to make sure it blends in with its environment. When the time comes, only you will know where the gun is and that is a massive advantage.
A handgun safe might look like a an extravagance, but it can change your relationship with your firearms. You will also have your preferred CCW, but a network of weapons, long forgotten in your big safe, could become the basis of your home defense system.
That’s what it is. If you have a plan, and fallback, then that is a system. So keep going with it, refine your home defense plan and make sure you get the best gun safes you can afford, that work for the environment. Liberty home concealment options can also work with the vaults.
11. Homak Between the Studs Gun Safe
- Price: $44.99
Is this really a concealed wall safe? Is it really strong enough for a gun?
So you can get creative. But you should also check that this is enough to satisfy your local gun laws. Do not screw around with gun laws or you can find yourself on the wrong end of a serious felony count these days. If you live in Commifornia. And if you do, it’s kind of on you. Dude, you can move.
Slots Straight Into Your Drywall
This in wall gun safe slots in between the studs, once you have cut a hole in your drywall. Slot the in wall gun safe home and you have got a subtle and easily accessible gun safe that opens with a simple key.
A flush fitting in wall gun safe gives you the option of putting a painting, a clever sliding frame or just about anything else over the top of your hidden gun safe.
12. 35” Gun Concealment Shelf Safe
The smaller concealment shelf can still hold two handguns, or maybe even a handgun and a Draco Gun. Maybe something else suitably mad for home defense. You might even get a Sig Rattler
That aside, it’s the same principle as the other concealment shelf, just smaller and cheaper. It’s an intriguing gun safe hidden in plain sight with RFID locks. I’m not sure what else to say to be honest…
There is hidden storage space for a
This is gun concealment done so well…
13 SECUREIT Tactical Fast Box Model 47
It’s tempting to get carried away with clever solutions. Remember, though, that a classic gun safe will probably be more secure. Also, you can put a Tactical Fast Box almost anywhere.
This slimline, lightweight gun safe is designed to go under the bed, or sofa, or beside a wardrobe against the wall. So only you can get to it in an emergency. Only you know where it is, for a start…
It is also properly certified and is a proper gun safe, that just happens to be slim enough to hide almost anywhere. This is a different league of rifle safe.
Not many of these gun safes will take long guns, but this one will. Maybe two at a push, together with a handgun. Lay it out right and you could squeeze a full four gun home defense kit in there. Check out Liberty home concealment options too.
14. Clock Gun Vault
It isn’t the prettiest concealment clock, but then it is functional in its own special way.
This is a one gun storage compartment that means you always have a gun to hand. It’s a new kind of hidden storage furniture.
It isn’t really locked. Instead you push down on the 12 and the face comes free. Is that enough for you? Well nobody should know the gun is there.
The concealment clock does a relatively convincing job and also tells the time.
I’m not convinced this is the ultimate gun storage solution. The concealment clock simply isn’t as secure as other gun safes that do a simpler job, better. But it’s clever.
15. Bench Seat
Not only is this hidden gun safe secure, it is also fireproof storage furniture. That means it will protect your firearms and valuables for an hour in an inferno.
A fire rating and real fire protection are rare luxuries in this sector. Storage furniture like this isn’t easy to find.
It’s a bench with a concealed compartment that holds five long guns. That capacity rifle safe is actually pretty impressive for hidden gun safes. It’s a functional seat, it can go at the end of your bed and you’ve got an arsenal at your disposal in seconds.,
In terms of security, it’s solid enough. of course it doesn’t seem to have the certificates you might like to show people if you get inspected. If you can live with that, it looks a pretty solid hidden gun storage furniture, if not quite a full blown safe!
You can store much more than guns in this bench seat, of course, and it does look pretty secure.
16. Rustic Wall Unit
I like this one on a decorative level, because who is going looking for a gun in this home-made, rustic set up? Hidden storage furniture is an interesting concept, especially with proper rfid locks.
On the other hand, if you live in California or some other Commie State, forget it. Any gun safe laws whatsoever basically rule out novelties like this.
It does lock and it comes with a magnetic key shaped like a candle, which is clever. I am just not sure I’d want to explain that to the Sherriff in some States.
It’s a clever hidden gun safe, that probably isn’t all that safe if we’re honest.
Now this one is a seriously good idea. Probably the most vulnerable place in the house, in terms of a likely confrontation and the distance to a bedroom gun safe, is the front door.
So this simple key rack with a hidden handgun compartment is a great idea.
It’s the perfect location to store your concealed carry weapon if you don’t want to carry in the house as well. There’s a lot to like about this hidden storage
You can’t really strap a gun vault to the wall by the entrance. But this rustic woodwork builds into the wall.
Even if an intruder knows what it is, he still probably won’t crack it. You need to place the key in a precise area of the door to pop it open and reveal your handgun in the hidden storage locker.
