Tactical Lamp: Gun Storage at Home

lamp1

If you own a gun, odds are fairly good you use it for home defense. Although not everyone concealed carries, an impressive number of those who buy guns do so for the purpose of protecting their castle. Yes, there are some hunters out there who do not worry about defense, home or otherwise, but they tend to be the exception rather than the rule. This brings up the question of what you do with your gun at home. Do you keep it locked in a safe? Carry it on your body at home? If so, what do you do with it at night?

There are quite a few options out there, not to mention a rather large number of opinions. Aside from traditional safes, whether large or small, there are also a number of gun storage options designed for quick access and varied levels of concealment. There have been coffee tables, paintings, china hutches, and, of course, the ever-popular American flag wall hanging. Now there is a tactical lamp.

    This is the first “out in the open” gun storage solution I’ve seen that doesn’t look a) suspicious, and b) cheap, as in “I put this together out of scraps from my last project specifically to hide my guns in.”

    Come on TFB! You’re better than this!

    Hey,
    I read the same product announcement yesterday on TFB.
    Is this becoming a paid advertisement site?

    Ah, yet another gem from the forever inventive Katie A. Couldn’t find a video to embed in your article as well and then type out what the person says in the video?

  • MrEllis

    Did TFB just steal from itself with no sources?

  • I might pay over $100 for one of those. Might.

  • Dracon1201

    That repost, though.

  • stephen

    $119 or $129 for a lamp?

    That is absolutely crazy, considering that the materials probably only cost about $15, I can probably go to Big Lots and make my own for about $40.

    So… no thanks.
