Saw this trying to find it online.

The Hollow Book Store

Interesting. You can buy them a few places online, but if you do it yourself you can customize it.

That looks really great! I've thought about doing that but then I remembered that I own very few large books that cost me under $100.

Hell I hope robbers don't wise up to the fact that book prices are through the roof these days. I have more money into textbooks than I do my gun collection, my stereo equipment, computers, musical instruments, and even my BMW.

You'd obviously want to use a really old book that doesn't have much value, e.g. Twilight, or a dictionary. The book I used was over 30 years old, and is 10 editions out of date. :-P

Now how can a calculus book be out of date? Have we changed the laws of physics in the last 10 years?

LOL, probably because they would go out of business if they never made new editions. :-P

Not a bad idea for when you're home. The only problem I see is when you're not home and a burglary occurs. Not unlikely for the thief to knock books off shelves, empty out drawers on the floor, pull sheets and pillows off the beds, etc. Most know that a lot of people use these places to hide valuables.

They would be in a hurry, and I don't think they would suspect a Calculus book to be hiding a gun. ;-)

Reminds me of a 1980s Japanese ninja movie I seen(yes I used to watch ninja movies)where a ninja was disguised as a priest,and he opened his bible to reveal a chain whip of some kind that he immediatly whipped around some guys' neck and strangled him.

Unless they read this forum . It's not that they would be looking for a gun in a book. When they tear through a house the reason they rip things apart and knock things off shelves is just to see what might fall out. I've seen a case where a two man team would kick in a front door, rush through the house throwing anything that they could sell into a sack, rip cushions off sofas, books off shelves, etc., and leave by the back door. In and out in less than three minutes. House looked like a tornado went through it. Caught because they couldn't keep their mouths shut.
