    But I know several folks that keep their powder and stuff in one of these with a dehumidifier. Never seen folks put guns in them though.

    It's only as secure as the padlock on the door, which ain't much.

    1) easy to add more hasps for padlocks
    2) remove door gaskets and replace with spacers for ventilation

    certainly more secure than under beds and sofas or in a closet

    I like the idea of "hiding in plain sight" as it were.
    Wonder how to make it more secure without being obvious that you were trying to hide something ?

    I'm pretty sure that's an old freezer, a lot of those that I have seen have a lock on the door. Between the "hiding in plain sight" factor and a simple key lock, I bet it's at least as secure as a hidden staircase in your bookshelf.

    I would have expected this to be under: "You know you're a redneck if . . . . "

    Just put a Rottweiler in front of it and it will be fine.

    Fridges and freezers are some of the common places they look for valuables.

    Just the same, it is possibly more secure than a closet.

    I saw that fridge advertised on CL recently. I think it was free. The pic was a suggestion for how it could be used. Since it was in Newberg I thought about popping down the mountain to get it for a storage container but like most days I was too lazy to do it.

    Also, a person could drape a tarp over it to partially hide it. Obfuscation does actually help security a little - sometimes, and is better than nothing - I would bet that better than 50% of privately owned guns are either stacked in a closed or in a dresser drawer or under a bed somewhere, which are among the first places burglars look.

    It's not a new idea, but I've always thought about modifying a hot water tank, maybe with some bogus plumbing attached. Nobody thinks much about water tanks. Maybe even modify an old furnace.
