Hollowbooks as a novelty are not intended to replace a gun safe. Hollow Books are not intended as everyday storage in homes where children may be present. We recommend that you have a valid concealed carry permit and take the appropriate firearms training courses. The Custom Hollow Book Company takes gun safety very seriously and we hope that each of our customers does the same. Our books are designed to provide quick and ready access to your personal protection. A portion of each gun case custom book sale is donated to reputable gun safety organizations. Please read our terms and conditions. Our products do not meet Approved Regulatory Gun Safe Standards of CA, and are not listed by UL as a Residential Security Container.
