Look no further than the gun bed:

Suspiciously terrible taste in bedspread / pillow pattern aside (haha zebra, cheetah, leopard?) this guy is NOT to be messed with when he’s in his jammies trying to catch some ZZZZzzz.  Where can I get some ill sweatpants with the knee detail like that?

Jokes aside, I wonder if getting the gun out properly takes coordination and practice?  I’d probably be all groggy, hit the release and my AR-15 would hit me in the head and knock me unconscious.  Another thing I’m not at all thrilled about is the fact for those who aren’t #ForeverAlone, someone else in the bed with you is going to have to be in on your little surprise gun action.  If not, they might find themselves accidentally releasing the rifle… getting muzzle swept, or knocked in the head with the barrel when you’re trying to get the gun out when you hear a ruckus.

pantherIs the gun bed vaporware?  I don’t know… what I do know is that the link in the YouTube description where you could supposedly order it doesn’t work.  I’m guessing the guy made his millions, retired and is just chilling in the tropics right now getting fed grapes by supermodels on platinum gun beds, surrounded by real zebra, cheetahs, and leopards.

Thoughts?

Weapons control systems are designed to detect and deny entry to unauthorized people carrying weapons into secure areas.

From NovaComm, one of the leading manufactures of these systems:

The access control system consists of a bullet resistant aluminum frame enclosed by bullet resistant glass, and a bullet resistive ceiling. The frame is divided into two separate compartments: one for entry and one for exit. Passage through each compartment is controlled by a set of two intercommunicating doors. Entry doors and exit doors are totally separate systems. Control of the doors is achieved through the use of exit devices, magnetic locks, infrared sensors, and a metal detector.

NovaComm’s Access Control Vestibule can distinguish between magnetic, non-magnetic and mixed alloys weapons.

One of my blog followers, Israel, sent me the following pictures from his local bank (University Credit Union) in Miami, FL:

And a closeup of the sign:

Israel, who is a concealed weapons permit (CWP) holder is not impressed with this recent “upgrade”, and decided to write the bank president a letter (viewable here).

My guess is that systems like these are a fairly good deterrent to crime.  But at what cost?

The reality is that just because “metal” guns and weapons are not allowed in the bank, doesn’t mean there are not countless other ways for a criminal to wreak havoc inside of a bank. Composite knives, bats, knunchucks, chemical weapons, leather whips, a pool ball in a sock … the Glock 7 (I kid about that one)

I know the bank is considered private property, and we all have the choice whether or not we want to deal with places like this. The easiest thing to do I suppose is just switch banks if you don’t like their policies.  It’s too bad it has to come to that sometime in order to stay safe.

Thanks Israel!

Hidden in plain sight

I had a DIY (Do It Yourself) post a couple of weeks ago called Hide a gun in a book where it showed how to hollow out a space in a book to hide a gun.

SayUncle Blog had a couple new links up regarding hiding guns in special picture frames (which I review in option #6).

I found a lot of new ways for creative gun hiding places which I will critique below. All the prices listed are subject to change.

1) Octagon Gun Clock – $40

Awful thick for a clock.  Also, it looks pretty plain, so depending on how nice your house is it may not work with the decor.  Clocks are generally high up on the wall, so getting the gun quickly might require getting a chair over to where the clock is.  If you really don’t want to fool anyone with your gun clock, keep it at chest height for easy gun access.
