I was excited to receive the BARSKA Hidden Gun Safe and promptly tried -- without success to store one of my handguns inside. I really should have read the dimensions closer, but thought that "handgun" in the title would have large enough interior space to place handguns inside. I own a Baretta 9mm and an old S & W .38 with a 4" barrrel. Neither would fit at all. The product was shipped promptly by Amazon and is innocuous on my bookshelf, but unless you are storing a 2", it is NOT a good safe for guns.

Great little safe. Just so you gun enthusiasts out there get a feeling for the size, I keep a Glock 19 (w/ OEM tactical light) with one mag loaded and an additional mag inside. That fits pretty snug. Pages are very authentic. It definitely blends in nicely in a night stand or book case.

I bought this item for a friend's birthday and i think it is awesome! The cover is really beautiful, like a vintage Pride and Prejudice book, and it really does look and feel like a real book. The "pages" really feel like the real pages of the book instead of a block of cupboard or something like that. At one glance, you'd think it is a real book. I don't know about guns since it is illegal for civilians to hold guns in my country. But this item can effectively hold a stack of notes, jewelries, trinkets and whatnot. It is an ideal thing to have, especially if you have meddling siblings. (;

I thought I'd take a stab at this one because it seems less obvious then all the dictionary options out there, I probably should have looked a little closer at the product beforehand though.

The cover isn't designed like a book cover, but like a book's dust jacket, which makes it pretty clear right away its fake, because if you're taking a quick scan of a book shelf you might notice that this one isn't quite like the others, among all your books will be this oddly perfectly flat and perfectly rectangular book jacket (which, even brand new, dust jackets don't look this perfect). It really does just look like a box with Pride and Prejudice printed on it. I know, the idea is a thief wouldn't give your book shelf this kind of scrutiny, nonetheless I had hoped for something a little more thorough and convincing.

Pride and Prejudice is also a bad title to go with. Again, I know the idea is it'll just look like a book, and most thieves aren't going to read the titles of your library and find the oddity, that said, it seems like it wouldn't be difficult to choose a book that actually fits the dimensions of the safe. Pride and Prejudice is a small, 250-300 page novel (my paperback can fit in my back pocket). This product is the size of a text book, and as thick as it is would make it a book that's at least 600-700 pages.

This is fine as a novelty, but not convincing enough for me to feel comfortable keeping anything of value in it.

Bought this for my daughter after she just moved into her own apartment. It's perfecft. Realistic pages and cover hide the fact that it is really a safe. Good amount of storage for its size.

I love this book so much. I can keep numerous belongings in it without anyone being suspicious. Every person who has seen this book didn't think anything of it. It's very secretive to keep nosy people out of your belongings, and you can bring it with you anywhere. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it should have a few pages in the front to hide the front of the safe if anyone were to open the book, but other than that it's perfect!

Great to hide away jewelry in an apartment. When you are living where others may enter, it is nice to be able to tuck some things away.

So I bought this to take with me when I moved abroad for school. There are a lot of break ins where I live and I wanted a safe place for my passport and money. This is perfect! It blends right in with my other books and wouldn't draw attention. As for being a gun safe... my boyfriend tried it out with his handgun and it fit as long as it wasn't in it's holster. I really know nothing about guns so that's all I can say about that, but he seemed to think it would work as a gun safe for a small handgun.

I love how the paper is real. The only thing is there is a hollow feeling when you pick it up and hold it, not like a regular book but this is one of the best quality book safes I have seen yet.
