Storing pistol in a hollowed out book
 
I was trying to figure out a good way to store my pistol near my bed, without it being out in the open. I got the idea to hollow out a book and place it in there. Not only is it an arm's length away, but if (God forbid) someone broke into my house and I happened to leave my gun home, they wouldn't see it.

I might put a lining inside it, to keep any paper flakes out of the gun, but I think I got it all taken care of when I applied glue all inside the book.

Well, you could not of chosen a more boring, keep that away from me book. NO ONE is going to be break in to steal that baby... LOL

Kind of reminds me of the scene in Men In Black - little girl, in the ghetto, walking around carrying a Quantum Physics book? If you ask me I think she's about to start something ... :cool:


Nice work on the storage ;)

Haha, that's what I was thinking, well, as long as it isn't a math nerd breaking in. :-P

Jeez, whenever I break into a house to steal books I go straight for the math texts.

Great idea and good job.

When they told me I could keep walking towards the wall but never get there, I was convinced that Isaac Newton was possessed.

Nice idea! Bad guys don't read.
I would have made the cut out a tad larger and inserted a paper cigar box to fit. would prevent paper dust & pieces floating around the gun IMO.

Yeah, I didn't have any boxes that would fit inside. I might put a piece of fabric in it. I did apply a lot of glue on the inside, so there isn't really any paper dust, but there is still a chance that some pieces could come off.

If I were to do it again, I'd buy a small metal lock box, and a really huge old text book to hollow out.

The idea is sound since who's going to go through every book in a bedroom library or stack on the night stand. Yet close enough to reach easily.
