I saw advertized not to long ago a gun safe that was horizontal with a seat cusion on top to disguise it. Anyone know who makes it?

Scroll down to the bottom. I was thinking of one of these myself, but an upright safe actually turned out to be cheaper.

If you lived in the NE area and had $$ to burn, I could build you a steel-reinforced concrete bunker like mine. Walk-in conveinience, large capacity, virtually everything-proof. For double the money, you could have four or five times the safe.

Thats the one. Thanks Guys. I need this one because the safe will actually be in a bedroom (not the master) and I really don't want anyone to know its there. I would get a vertical but there isn't anywhere for me to put it in the new house (I close in one week).

It lists at about $2,000.00 and is a special order item. A dealer may charge you less than list, of course.

3'8" x 7'8" x 6' high. You could fit 5 full upright commercial safes in a basement bunker like...well, the ones I have constructed. All dimensions are inside dimensions. Virtually fire-proof and burglar-proof. Trust me, you can fit an [b]awful[/b] lot of guns and ammo in one of these, plus you can walk right into it. Right in your own basement.

That would assume I had a basement. I would love a safe like that Wobblin, but I live here in NC and a basement is a rare thing.

Have I got good news for you! Contact Garandman as he can help you with your problem. He lives in the south and doesn't have a basement either.

Wobblin, do you have any pictures of the work you've done? I'd be interested to see what one of these looks like. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

Wobblin's vault. Here's a pic of the rebar reinforcment. [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid14/p1e3a51cb3a707903ff073cc4e71d1b5c/fde07172.jpg[/img] I thought I had more pics, but I'll hafta look around. On the right is the fabricated door frame and door he made. I'll let Wobblin say anything more on his door, if he wants to. (Its a VERY interesting, proprietary design)

Wobblin, I just moved to a house w/ a shelf basement like garandman's pic, in the future I'd like to build a room similar to what you have there but would probably use cinder block with rebar reinforcements. There is one thing I can't figure out however. How do you do the ceiling? For the life of me I can't figure it out. Oh yeah, my basement steps are 26" wide with a right angle at the top so getting big stuff down there is impossible.

Once you pour the walls, and the crete cures, you remove the forms. Then you lay some 3/4" plywood over the top, form around the perimeter of the vault , brace the crap out of the plywood, and pour the cap. Plywood stays in the vault.

How about a conventional gun safe,then you add an old style refrigerater door and all the side panels .ect. You could easily put a chain on the old refrig door and nobody would think the less of it as many people lock their refrigs up to keep kids,roomates.ect out. Bob [8D]

The problem with the fridge idea is where to put it?
Link Posted: 7/10/2002 7:08:26 PM EDT
People have freezers and such in their garages no? Bob [8D]

I don't have one. I will be getting a Shed soon. (hopefully)
