Conceal Pistol on Headboard

Intro: Conceal Pistol on Headboard

I didn't take a bunch of photos of this because I wasn't thinking of posting it as an Instructable, but after scanning through some of the 'tables I thought I'd show how I conceal my pistol.
We had acquired a cpouple of church pews from a freind and after a lot of hints from my wife I decided to make the headboard she'd been wanting for years. I cut the legs off and detached the seat from the back. We have a King bed and the length of pew was just perfect.
After a lot of sanding, and I mean alot, I fastened a cleat to the headboard and the other cleat to the wall. I added a couple of 2x6's on each side, cut to the desired angle, to get the pitch neaded when installed.
Having everything done I had a thought on how I could conceal my pistol. I came up with a simple wood holder made from scraps of oak, you never throw anything out, right?
I also made two slots to hold my clips, just because I could.
When installed on the bedroom wall you can't see anything because it sets back just far enough to be hidden well but easily accessible when/if needed.

    Great Idea. Now the bad guys should get down on their knees and pray, that they don't come to your house.

    Simple, to the point instructable. Thanks. Btw, magazine, not clip.

    Take care

    Brilliant idea! I have been struggling for a place to conceal my pistol by the bed for years. Now I have a project to work on! Thanx.

    I hope no small kids ever enter your bedroom.
