Concealment Shelves

Quality Concealment Shelves for any style! The Gun Source has the perfect concealment shelf to match the décor of your home while perfectly hiding your favorite gun.

If you need a place to conceal your firearms and you’re also shopping for quality decorative furniture (or you live in a country like the United Kingdom which has very strict firearms regulation), then you’ve come to the write review article.

This gun concealment furniture review guide will introduce you to some of the best options for one of the most popular household furnishings among gun owners / collectors — concealment shelves.

What Exactly Is A Gun Concealment Shelf?

So what exactly is a concealment shelf (aka secret compartment or gun concealment furniture)? Well, it’s a display shelf / mounting hardware for hanging on your wall that also has a secret compartment for storing firearms (or valuable items) using foam mats or brackets. Sounds neat, doesn’t it!

The shelf looks like any other shelf you would buy from a home goods store to mount on your living or bedroom wall. Except it has a hidden, retractable gun compartment that you pull down to gain access to your pistols or rifle.

The gun compartment typically has a height / depth of 1.5″ to 5″. Gun owners like to order a custom-made Styrofoam place holder mat that conforms to the contour of the firearm(s) / accessories they want to conceal (if not provided by the shelf manufacturer). The ones that do provide foam storage mats will laser cut the insertions based on the standard dimensions of your gun model & ammunition (they will not laser cut extra space for custom designs or add-ons). You can also install bracket mounts against the secret compartment for hanging your firearm(s) and valuables.

Many of the best firearm concealment shelves will be big enough to store 1 or 2 handguns, 1 shotgun, or 1 fully assembled AR / M4 rifle (plus other items like ammo). Some are big enough to hold multiple submachineguns and pistols together. Others are ideal for handguns.

Note: A fully assembled AR rifle is roughly 35 – 42″ in overall length, and roughly 7 – 9″ in height. The overall dimensions of your firearm depends on its model and accessories (e.g. stock, muzzle attachments, rail, magazine). Know your guns! Along with a depth of 1.5 – 5″ for most gun shelves, you will probably need shelf compartment / concealment dimensions of at least 36″ (length) x 10″ (width) x 3.5″ (depth) to store an assembled rifle.

Of course, the added benefit of this type of gun concealment furniture is that it’s decorative and functions as a practical display shelf. People fill these shelves up with pictures, clocks, books, plants, mementos, keys, and trinkets. In our opinion, an avid gun owner (or anyone serious about protecting their household), should have 1 or 2 of this great product situated around their home. They are highly utilitarian, discreet, and provide easy access to your firearm incase of emergencies.

Keep in mind, The Gun Source doesn’t create any shelves of their own (although we do design a beautiful and spacious concealment table that can hide multiple firearms in your living room), but the following quality products listed in this guide have good reviews and represent a bestselling list of gun concealment shelves.

Let’s have a look at some of these awesome gun accessories:

CASTLECREEK Gun Concealment Wall Shelf with Hanging Hooks, Shelves with Hidden Secret Storage Compartment, Dark Cherry Wood Finish

This is a uniquely designed concealment wall shelf that’s unlike the others in our review. First of all, this Castlecreek wall shelf measures 28″ x 5″ x 10.5″ and has a drop-down panel to conceal a vertical storage area for handguns and personal valuables (e.g. wallet, notebook, keys, watch). There are no foam padding inserts. It’s concealment area measures at 21.5″ x 4.5″ x 7″. You might able to lay a compact handgun flat on the secret compartment’s surface (depending on gun’s height). For example, a Glock 43 will lay flat, but not a Berretta 92FS or Glock 34. You may also need to install some brackets to help stand your firearm upright inside the compartment.

Secondly, this is one of the few shelves that comes with decorative hooks for hanging coats and keys, adding to its overall usefulness.

Other than that, this shelf has a rustic and classy “American frontier” look to it. Keep in mind the shelf can support about 17 lbs. of weight, so you’ll probably want to store a lightweight polymer-framed pistol that weighs 1 – 3 lbs.
