    I'm not sure this is the best place to post this, but I thought I'd try. Where do you store, holsters, flashlights and stuff like that when you aren't using it? I ask because I only own my 2 pistols and they share space in my gunvault, ammo and mags are kept locked in ammo cans. Currently i just drop my holsters under the bed and grab them as I want/need them, along with a flashlight, knife and a few other things.
    I'd like to be able to store them inconspicuously on my dresser or something similar. That way I am not climbing under my bed to get stuff that I need. And also so that as I get ready each day I can grab everything in one spot and go. Suggestions?

    I have a box in my dresser where I keep all my pocket stuff (keys, wallet, belt, holster, flashlight, magazines, knife) during the night.

    One thing I don't do is leave anything indicating I own a gun laying around in plain sight. Visitors/kids see, tell friends/strangers....... people talk etc.
    Next thing stories are circulating around town you have a stash of guns and you get a break-in!

    Heck, ON, these days the stories circulating will be about you have a, probably illegal, arsenal and are nearly ready to attack a home for old Nuns! Start a militia! Start a jihad! That's very good advice, I follow it myself. SRG

    OP, I'm not just sure what you want to store? EDC or the leather for your pistols, knives, optics, shooting gear, etc?

    Holsters go in a small crate/bin.

    All the other tactical take offs go in another bin.

    Small parts, screws and other various loseable items go in.. You guessed it, a smaller bin! ;)

    I figure safes are for primary things such as firearms, mags, ammo and paperwork. All the other stuff.. Unless it's a high priced optic goes in yet another bin.

    As much as I enjoy Having firearms hidden or out and about, Oldnewbie has a point, I don't leave a bunch of gear out when my woman brings over someone I don't know..

    I leave some stuff out..Some but not much. Now that we're in a house rather than an apartment Its easier to leave things out.
    In an apartment I locked everything up when I left for the day...Everything.

    Our sign in our window indicates we own firearms and intruders will be shot.
    It's in Spanish as well.
