68 years ago, on Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese war planes attacked Pearl Harbor, the forward base for the United States in the Pacific, effectively drawing the United States into war with Japan. This picture of the sinking battleship USS West Virginia, illustrates the extent of the physical destruction. The crew of the boat in the foreground is attempting to save sailors in the water. The sinking of the USS West Virginia resulted in the death of 106 crewmen.
Never forget those who died… never forget those who killed them.
If you are running out of sneaky hiding places for guns, this might be a viable option… Hide one in a book.
There are a couple of rules of thumb I can think of when it comes to choosing a book:
- Do not choose a childrens book for obvious reasons
- Do not use a bible.. thats just poor taste even if you are not religious
- Do not use a good book.. one that someone will want to take off the shelf to look at
- Do not use a book that someone will want to borrow
- Do not use a book you think you might ever want to read, or re-read
Come to think of it.. “Barack Obama – The Audacity of Hope” is probably a good choice that will make sure you’re safe on all above points
What you need:
- A book you don’t care about
- 2 thin pieces of wood a bit larger than your gun
- A scroll saw or jigsaw
- A drill and drill bit
- A hammer
- Some finishing nails
- Rubber cement (optional)
- Felt (optional)
- Trace the outline of your gun onto one of the thin pieces of wood (remember this is your template, so leave extra room if you want for your hand so you can pull the gun out easily)
- Take the book and separate out the pages that you want to be the core of your hiding spot (it’s recommended to leave at least a few pages on the top and bottom untouched for looks)
- Fold the back and front covers towards each other so they are out of the way
- Position the wood with the outline of the gun on it ontop of the pages you want to saw through
- Position the other piece of wood at the bottom of all the pages you want to saw through
- Hammer a few finishing nails through the top piece of wood, making sure they go all the way through the book and into the bottom piece of wood
- Make sure the nails are not sticking out the bottom piece of wood. If they are tap them back a bit, otherwise they will interfere when you are trying to cut out the shape on the saw
- Drill a pilot hole along the edge of your gun outline through the whole stack
- Start the cutting from this position and slowly work your way around the gun outline
- Once you are done cutting all the way around the outline you should just be able to pop the cutout piece out
- You have your new gun hiding spot!
- Optional: Paint the inside of your cutout cavity with rubber cement paste and line with felt

Yea yea… Glocks explode… I’ll save all you Glock haters the trouble and post these before you get a chance:
I have not had a Glock explode on me yet… and I’ve never seen it happen. Every gun store on earth though has employees that have seen “LOTS” explode “with their own eyes” and they love telling you this every time you inquire about a Glock … riiiiiighhht *rolls eyes*
I still think that most of these problems could be attributed to the “unsupported” chamber on the Glock, and shooting hot reloads.
If you want to shoot hot reloads, and you have a Glock, it would likely be best to buy an aftermarket barrel like the one on the left. Notice the amount of the body of the cartridge that is exposed on the Glock factory barrel (right).
I’ll stick to my factory loaded ammunition and the factory barrels for now.
MARSHALL COUNTY, W.Va.
a Marshall County officer was shooting at the range Tuesday morning when his service weapon literally blew up in his hand during a round of fire.
“The weapon went to the ground, the range officers were yelling for cease-fires,” he said.
Cecil says it was the first time the .45-caliber pistol had ever been used.”All that energy blew out on the top of his hand. And that’s where his injuries are,” Cecil said.
The deputy is now recovering at home. He’s still undergoing testing to find out the severity of his injuries.
The chief believes bad ammunition caused this bizarre accident, but he’s looking into it further.
