Having a gun lying around can be a serious security risk, especially if you have children. Another thing you need to consider is that guns are not cheap, and some of the best models can easily cost several hundred dollars. Having them exposed will make them an easy target in case you are robbed.
Hidden safes are better than regular safes because burglars usually only search common areas, like inside closets or underneath beds. They want to get out of your home as soon as possible, so it will be unlikely that they’ll waste their time going through all the items in your house wondering if any of them hides something inside.
There are different types of hidden gun safes that can bring you peace of mind. There are easily concealed and bring no attention to them; only you will know that the book in your shelf actually contains a 9mm Taurus and some valuable documents inside it.
