If you own a handgun, the perfect storage solution may be a gun storage end table.
Keep Your Handgun Safely Out of Sight
One of the main responsibilities of a gun owner is safely storing their gun out of the way of curious children and anyone else who should not have access to the firearm. This includes other family members, friends and intruders into the home.
All too often we hear stories of a child or teenager killed by a loaded handgun that was carelessly left in the open. Other stories tell of the dangers of a burglar finding a firearm in a home and using it later in a violent crime.
Keeping your guns hidden in a locked gun safe is one method of keeping them stored safely and securely. However, another option is keeping them stored in an end table that is specially made for safe gun storage.
Although most end tables made for gun storage have secure key locks, there are some styles that do not have a lock. These gun storage tables have a hidden latch that opens the gun storage area when it is pulled.
The Benefits of Using a Gun Storage End Table
When you keep your firearm in an end table specifically made for gun storage, it is safely hidden yet readily available. End tables made for the storage of guns are beautiful pieces of furniture that would look at home in any living room, family room or den next to your favorite recliner. Some gun owners even choose to use a small end table with gun storage as a night stand in their bedrooms. These tables are also the perfect size for small apartments.
Storing your handguns in an end table made for that purpose is a safe way to hide your firearm in plain sight. This type of table is made to look just like a regular end table and no one will be able to tell it is concealing a gun inside.

There are several styles of end tables made for storing handguns.
