Tactical Lamp from TacticalWalls

Tactical Lamp from TacticalWalls

Yes, yes, yes, I know.  Tactical is probably the most overused word in the gun industry.  But it sells.  That said, there is a current proliferation of home concealment options for your toys, and they do provide you a tactical advantage in some cases.

A Lamp?

TacticalWalls has added a new option to their growing lineup of everyday home decor items that conceal weapons–a lamp.  The “Tactical Lamp” is a fully functional lamp that features a hidden storage compartment inside its wooden body. The hidden compartment is accessed by removing a detachable side panel from the base of the lamp. The detachable side panel is kept in place by magnetized placeholders.

Inside the compartment is a layer of loop-sided fastener to allow the use of a variety of mounting options. Behind the loop-sided fastener they have even added a strong magnet that should allow you to adhere the gun (or knife, or whatever) to the rear wall.

The exterior dimensions of the lamp base are 11.5″H x 9″W x 7.25″D. The interior dimensions of the storage compartment are 9″H x 6″W x 4″D.  It is actually a bit smaller than I thought before I watched the video.  It comes in three different finishes: Dutch Walnut, Black and Cherry.

All of their products are US made with US sourced materials.  MSRPs range from $119 to $129 for a single unit and $179 to $199 for a set of two; the price difference is whether or not you get the optional lampshade.  There is a decent price break on ordering two units.

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of IronSights.com; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

    Love the concept, but for the price, I might just have to make one for myself.

    Awesome concept but it think it makes the gun too difficult to grab, especially in a hurry. What I would suggest is to have the door to the compartment hinged from the bottom. And have a box attached to the inside of the door for the gun to sit pointing down. When you open the hinge, it’ll expose the gun in a safe, easily accessible way. I might just make this myself. Lol.

    Stupid concept, stupid price. For the price, you can buy an electronic hand safe which you can bolt to the floor or wherever which will actually keep your firearm secure. This thing is an invitation to “Hey, look where my dad hides his gun” accident. Nor will it protect your gun in a house fire. Plus it has “Knock it off the dresser and see what’s inside” written all over it in case of a burglary.

      Harsh assesment… but accurate.

    A table lamp would look suspicious in my decor, but I guess it would work in a more Norman-Rockwell household.

    This product has not been evicerated enough. You guys should post it again. Make sure one of the less popular writers posts it.
