  Design for defense
Outside of the thought of having a loaded pistol in my bedside table, this:

is my next best bet for home defense in the case of being burgled. Granted it ain't stopping a bullet, but a knife or other blunt object won't stand a chance!

The first mention of this comes from Fark, which in turn links to Gizmodo, which mentions the name "James McAdam", but fails to link to his site. But once you're there (you're welcome for the link of course), you can find the "Safe Bedside Table".

I'll be submitting this to General Repairs for a mock up, with a few adjustments from others suggestions:
  1. handles on the top of the table. That way you could slip your arm in quickly, lift up, then grab the club and be off. No need to flip things around and fumble with stuff
  2. 2" thick live oak backed by a clean 1/8 inch of steel plate. Should stop at least a 9mm, if you get lucky enough to get it up in time.
  3. look into the feasibility of an end table about the size of a police ballistics shield... polished mahogany with the same steel plating
  4. did i mention the built in .357 mag holster on the underside?
  5. The unit is fitted with polycarbonate plastic plating (covering/shielding). Polycarbonate plastic has many desirable characteristics for this application. The 1.25” thick plating is constructed of laminated sheets and is capable of stopping a bullet from a hand gun up to a 357 magnum caliber.
I think that will do it for now. Hopefully, if he's not too busy, Jerry might be able to work on this and at least get it spec'd for me me.

Taking home defense to a whole new level......home furnishing!

Now with me placing a table order, I might have to wait a bit before commissioning him for the big deal:

Just perfect for home invasions!
