Actually, you can tailor the appearance, and many folks leave an old water

heater till "later", and forget about it. If you use dirty or rusty water, it

will leave a residue, after it dries, which is what you wanted in the first

False bottom in a dining room table is very easy and costs very little . What about a false cold air intake grate in the wall? Older homes have really wide trim which can be opened up behind it and trim put back on with piano hinge and magnets to keep it closed . If you have a basement with open floor joists you could always double one up and router out the inside of one to fit the gun of your choice and screw them together. Got stairs ? Hinge a stair tread and put your gun in there . Lots of places you just have to get creative . I have often thought about putting a rifle in our upright Piano

Anything that is sealed might pop up out of the hole. I have seen people try to bury ice chests and steel drums, they pop up out of the ground.
That's because it's buried below the water table. The water is "floating" it up out of the ground. That's the reason in some cemeteries that everybody is buried above ground in crypts, like New Orleans. If you have to bury anything blow the water table, automatically not a good idea, IMHO.
