Where to hide a handgun

Where in a Class A home is the best place to hide a handgun so the police and border patrol won't find it?

Well that is an interesting question.. And a bit concerning. I carry in our trailer but not to hide it from the law or sneak it across a border...

If you are planning to enter Canada with a hand gun I recommend that you leave it at home. If the custom officer finds the gun the charges are not worth the risk.

If you're legally allowed to own a firearm, I wouldn't worry about hiding it, just make sure you are transporting it within law. As for border crossings, if it's illegal, don't do it! If caught you will lose that firearm, and your freedom for a while.

If trying to get into Canada, with a prohibited or restricted handgun will not end well for you if caught.
Canadian border patrol is pretty darn good at finding things, just as good as USBP.

I won't even mention the southern border.

And it sounds like you should leave it home if worried about the police finding it.

My guess what he wants to do is illegal... OR you are correct no reason to hide it.

For the legally carrying folks I mounted a safe the wardrobe to keep it secure from the wee one and have a safe in the truck for the un-safe "gun free zones."

Question? Why would you want to hide a firearm from the police? They are on your side. As far as border patrol, if you try to sneak a weapon across a border, you are smuggling and deserve what you get.
I am a firearms instructor and never go anywhere unarmed, if not to protect myself or my family, then to protect those who can't or WON'T protect themselves or their families. Watch the news!
I have a concealed carry permit, as does my wife, my son, my daughter and my son-in-law. I haven't had to use a firearm since 1969 and hope I never have to again. The first thing I do at a traffic stop is to present my CCW to the LEO. It's just professional courtesy.

I always stop on the US side and let a FFL dealer keep them for the 35.00 transfer fee. Pick them up when you get back to Danger Zone

I am the police and I will have to disagree with that... There is a federal law that lets me carry anywhere in the US and its territories... But certain places (NJ and NYC for a few) will arrest me for carrying.. Check the laws and make sure ARE GOOD. I am fine if I get a carry permit handed to me, I figure this is a sign that this is a GOOD GUY I have stopped. Others... Well there is others...

C'mon, you really don't think you are going to come up with something the professionals have not seen before?
Went to Canada this summer. They ran my passport and probably due to my CCW asked us twice, forcefully, if we were transporting any weapons and then sent us to secondary and removed/searched every freaking last box, bag, container, compartment and crevice of our camper and tow vehicle. It was a d@^n good thing I left my weapon at home.
