Work Question

Asked at work:  "What gun would you buy 3 of to stash in various places of your house, and where?"

Already asked that quesdtion of myself...

Well, one option is, if you have a few police turn-ins of .38 revolvers... Those are nice to salt all about.  Cheap, simple.  I'd store one in the kitchen and in the bathrooms.  Maybe next to the easy chair I sit in most.  Some homeinvaders like to lock people in the bathroom so they can do their dirty work with you contained.  One guy watches the door while the others cart out your stuff.  And the bathroom is often windowless so you can't call for help.  Be nice to have a gun in there, hidden, in a ziploc plastic bag to keep corrosion down.  But then you have a gun a nosy guest might find, so...

Option 2, for me, is exposed hammer double barrel shotguns on hooks over doors.

But I have done neither.  I don't have many guest, and NO kids, but it just seems... odd.  Better to just have your CCW gun on you.  Even if you are like me and can only carry at home.

Yeah. I don't stash guns either, just carry at home.

If kids are in the house, even occasionally that significantly changes things. So carrying it on your person seems like the best idea.

Though putting one in a pelican case in the toilet tank seems like a pretty good idea.

Tam yelled at me for saying Stash Guns are a Good Thing, but I still believe it to be a viable option for those that don't have little ones in the home.

Keep in mind, you have to take a Shower sometime, right? So, I'd recommend a Stainless Snubbie with a rubber grip placed in the Bathroom BEHIND the Toilet Tank. Just get a piece of copper strapping from the Hardware Store. Make an S-Hook, put enough in the tank so it doesn't flop, then attach the outside part to an old Nylon or Kydex Holster, and let it dangle just below where the tank and bowl join.

Just don't forget you have it there when you have Plumbing Work done.

Another Trick is to put a Shotgun on 2 hooks in the Closet just above its Doorway. Open a Closet door, take one step inside, then turn around and look up. You'll see that space. Just don't use it for Zombies. Same principle as the old Rifle above the Mantle.

Hope this helps.

Only if your house is a box of Cracker Jacks.

S&W model 686, 2.5" barrel.

Nothing says "Get Out" like 7 rounds of 125 grain .357 Magnum goodness.

There are safes that mount in between wall studs and sit flush against the wall. Put one in, hang a picture over it, voila! Instant hidden firearm that's safe from prying eyes.

Heck, you can buy one at Amazon for under $60...

Hmm. I may have to pick up one of those...
