Nice video

Gun safety disclaimer:
Don't keep loaded weapons in unsecure places if you have children or a lot of visitors. Don't need any more blogs about 3 yr old shooting their parents with a loaded gun left in a purse or in a dresser drawer.

My 2 cents

Also, not such a great design if it requires the firearm to be removed by the trigger guard.

But with a few modifications, a fun and helpful DIY project.

Wow you guys are a tough crowd. Pick a special edition book printed on acid free paper, your pistol finish will last better.

Business opportunity!

Buy unsold versions of this book, turn them into booksafes, and sell at gun shows.

Good luck trying to sell that crappy book at a gun shows. I doubt that very many were actually printed (they just paid her off on the book) not like regular authors that get a % of actual sales.

Perhaps her next book Hilarity Clintoon - What Does It Matter Now.

I wouldn't pay money for that book, but if anyone wants to give me a copy I could use some toilet paper.

That's the humor in it. Her book is worthless and she is anti gun, and here is her book gutted and used to store a gun.

Is gluing the pages together really necessary? Seems like the idea would work fine without the glue. Is actually seems like it might be nice to open the book to the middle and have the gun sticking out of the page slightly.

Maybe if it's not glued, then the book (absent side supports like other books) would open and let the gun fall out. Is that the concern?

Couldn't you just trace the gun on a book page, then use an exacto knife to cut out a few pages at a time? It may take a little longer, but the only tools you would need are the pencil, exacto knife, and a couple of clamps to hold the pages for gluing after the cutting is done. It may even be faster than gathering plywood, power tools, screws, drill bits, etc. Then there is the time measuring, cutting, drilling.

...and yes, I did see these being sold at a gun show.
