If your house has a basement or utility room with exposed plumbing (usually the same room where you’ll find your hot water heater)you can also easily hide guns by setting up a series of fake pipes. Some people pick a real pipe and install a Y extension, then hide their guns in it. The problem with that is if you have to break the pipe open in order to get to your guns, you risk flooding your basement. Instead, you’re far better off setting up a fake pipe line. Simply anchor some inexpensive plastic pipes to your ceiling next to where real pipes emerge. A pipe wide enough to fit a fully assembled handgun might look suspiciously large next to your regular plumbing, so contemplate the possibility of disassembling a gun and storing it inside. Alternately, save fake pipes for storing your smallest guns or for creating an ammunition cache.
