    True, if meant to be more than a temporary storage scheme to keep some eggs in different baskets.

    I wonder if someone makes rifle size zip lock bags? That might do the trick

    Your safe should:

    • not be readily visible to someone who enters your house.
    • be placed in a corner, protecting two sides from attack and preventing someone from easily wrapping something around it.
    • not be positioned such that it is accessible from a chain, rope or other such device from outside the house
    • be bolted to a concrete floor
    • be at least 1000 pounds, empty
    • be at least 7 ga steel on all sides

    Your DECOY safe should:

    • Be readily visible to anyone who enters your house
    • Be placed in the first room they are likely to enter
    • Be positioned for easy removal
    • Not be bolted to anything
    • Be heavy enough to be convincing, yet light enough to carry
    • Filled with a few bricks and a bunch of loose pennies

    With any luck, people will see the decoy safe, grab it and go, thinking they hit the motherload, without bothering to look in the rest of the house.

    You can use a vacuum sealer and roll of vacuum bag material for this purpose.

    I've done this by this method. The only thing I could add is to lightly grease the weapon first. The vacuum sealer and the roll of material works very well.

    Oldie but a goodie.

    Original ad:
    **** Disguisable weapons wanted ****
    Wanted: hidden blades, belt buckle knives, cane swords, etc.....
    Offering: cash, items for barter

    From Me to **********@***********.org:

    Hey,

    I saw your ad looking for concealable/disguised weapons. I have several fine-crafted items you may be interested in. Respond if you are interested and I will send you pictures and prices.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    From Jeff ****** to Me:

    I am. lets see what you got.

    From Me to Jeff ******:

    Jeff,

    Here you go:



    Looks like a normal spoon, right?



    Wrong. It is actually a deadly 2.5" half-smooth, half-serrated knife with tactical grip. One minute you are enjoying a bowl of cereal, and the next you are fighting off attackers with this deadly and disguised weapon.

    I am asking $50 for the blade. Let me know if you want to stop by and take a look at it.

    Mike

    From Jeff ****** to Me:

    that is stupid as hell and looks like crap. unless you have anything better to offer, dont waste my time.

    From Me to Jeff ******:

    Jeff,

    I am sorry you feel that way about the spoon blade. I do have some other weapons that I think you will feel differently about.

    Mike

    From Jeff ****** to Me:

    fine. but if it is another knife duct taped to a spoon then you can fuck off.

    From Me to Jeff ******:

    Jeff,

    Thank you for re-considering. Here are three quality disguised weapons that I think you will love:



    At first glance, this looks like a normal party cup. However, if you look close enough, you will see that it is really a fully automatic Glock 18C. You will be able to pour your enemies a nice warm cup of lead with this fine purchase. Asking $900 for the gun/cup combo.



    Still thirsty for justice? Try this badass M16A2 disguised as a 24-pack of soda. The box has two finely crafted holes on each side to allow for any kind of optics (not included) that you wish to attach. This weapon is only for sale if you have a Class III permit.



    This cleverly disguised weapon may look like a tissue box, but is actually a Benelli M3 12 gauge shotgun disguised as a tissue box. The ultra-soft quilted tissues serve as a comfortable grip on the pump-action shotgun. Also, if you find yourself sneezing during the heat of combat, you will have a handy tissue box ready for action. Asking $1500 for the weapon. Additional tissue boxes are an extra $5 per box.

    Let me know if you want any of these items.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    From Jeff ****** to Me:

    youre a fucking dumbass, shitbrained, asswipe, retarded dipshit. you prob walk around with that shit too you dumb mother fucker. I hope you get hit by a car. fuck off, eat shit, and die.

    I thought Governor Magoo outlawed guns for the CNN/China virus.
