I'm in pre-move-in remodeling of my house right now, doing some pretty big and pretty small surgery all over the place. I've been quietly (meaning wife shouldn't know) looking for a place I can hide my rifle where I can grab it fairly quickly if needed, but still have it be far from the kids reach. One place I've discovered is the cieling of my future bedroom closet. There's about 8 inches between the cieling plaster lath and the roof boards, and it's sloped downward with the roof. I was thinking of making a trap door about 3' long by 2', sort of like an attic door with the folding stair, that would only open about a foot, with a built in holster for up to 3 rifles. Open the trap, slide out a rifle, and I'm in business. I'm thinking I'd make the door out of heavy guage steel, with a key lock required to open it. If I start collecting guns, any more would go in a gun safe. I sorta want and don't want certain people to know I keep weapons in the house... Any thoughts? Anyone wanna tell my why that's a stupid idea? And where do you guys keep your guns? Gun Safe?
