Built in Gun Cabinet

6 posts in this topic

We recently purchased a different house and need to put in a gun cabinet.

I have a closet that has some extra room and I am going to build it into that. There will be a coat rack in front of it. I have room to make it 1' deep and the size of the closet, which is about 4' wide and 7' tall.

I want to build it as concealed as possible. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on a concealed lock system so if someone was to look behind the jackets, it would look like the wall. It could be something you designed or something I can buy.

Also, if you have any other tips for me that you have found useful in your gun cabinet.

Thanks!

Make sure the back of your cabinet is not an exterior wall, you will have moisture problems.

Have you considered a gun safe instead? You should be able find the right size to fit in your closet, and you can save money on your homeowners insurance policy which will pay for the safe in a few years. Some are also fireproof and you won't have to worry about children getting into it when your not around.

Just my .02:

I purchased a safe 5 years ago and it has been a great investment. Not only does it keep my "tools" safe, it also serves as a safe deposit box. I keep passports, Social Security Cards, checks, extra cash (if there is such a thing), and any other important documents you want to keep from fire or others. Liberty used to make a safe door that could be used in a "built-in" safe. Hope this helps.

I agree with you fishwithteeth. It also helps with getting the better-half to consent to the purchase when she knows that some of her valuables like jewlery will also be protected. liberty and browning are top of the line and offer combination storage areas and gun shelving.

My current gun safe is too small. I never thought about playing the wife card for a gun safe. I know that we have enough stuff like licenses, sscards, savings bonds, etc, that we could use a safe. THanks for the ideas.
