There are many, many different ways to store a gun. There are full-size gun safes, pistol safes, even a tissue box.
However one of the coolest out there are gun safes in the wall. These safes are installed in between the studs of a wall, and can come in many different shapes and sizes.
Before we go over the best safes like this, let’s first review the pro’s and con’s of owning one of these safes to make sure it is the best choice for you.
Pro’s of owning an in-wall gun safe
- Not easily seen or known about by intruders.
- Doesn’t take up much space.
- Generally is also something else that can be used, like a mirror
Con’s of owning an in-wall gun safe
- Not fire proof.
- Generally not super secure.
- Have to cut into your wall, which is difficult for those that rent a home.
- If a thief has spent any time looking into these types of products, they will be able to recognize the most well known versions.
- Can be found by children in the home, and without a great lock can be easily accessed.
- Can be cut out of the wall easily.
So now that we have gotten a chance to see the pro’s and con’s, and you have decided if this is a great choice for you, lets take a look at my favorites!
1. Tactical Walls
This company has been making huge strides in this area of concealed safes. Many of their products are specifically the in-wall style.
My favorite part about this brand is that their in-wall safes have many different styles to fit your home. This includes flags, chalk boards, mirrors and firearm artwork.
Only downside to these, is many of their popular products are only magnet operated, however some of their other products do allow for standard locking mechanisms.
Here are all of their wall products.
Stack-On also makes some great in-wall safes. With gun safes in the wall I’m mainly looking for a safe that hides well and has minimal security, so Stack-On is a great option, even though they are considered an entry level brand.
Their in-wall safe PWS-1555 is a great option, at 55″ tall it can handle a lot of stuff, including a rifle.
While this may be a bigger version of an in-wall safe, it still is able to fit in between the studs on a wall.
You can see this product on Stack-On’s website here.
This company may not specialize in these types of safes, however their version of the in wall safe is a great value.
Honestly there isn’t much to make this safe stand out, as in this category, unless you are creating something really cool like Tactical Walls does, it is probably going to look like this.
That said, it is a great value, and is one of my top recommendations to look into.

4. Console Vault In Wall Gun Safe
This company is more well known for their console safes, however they have a less well known in wall safe.
The wall safe is unique as it looks like an electrical panel any home will have. It conceals itself, which is great!
Once you open up the first panel of the safe, you will find a 4 digit code that needs to be input and then you are able to access the interior of the safe.
Take a look at what this looks like and to purchase on Console Vault’s website.
For those people that absolutely want the biometric fingerprint option on your safe. Barska is going to be one of your best bets. They specialize in biometric locks and seem to do a great job at it.
Outside of the lock, it looks just like the rest of the general wall safes out there.

Gun safes in the wall are a very specialized version of safe. They won’t work for everyone, however these safes will temporarily keep things out of reach of someone that is just visiting.
I may not plan on keeping anything in these safes when you are gone for prolonged amount of time. I also wouldn’t keep my firearms in these safes permanently.
However for quick access, a hidden safe, and the other Pro’s of these safes it could be a great option for some!
Also… the cool factor is great on these! Only issue is… you don’t want to tell anyone about them, because they wouldn’t be hidden anymore.
