    gun safes

    I'm (almost) a proud new owner of a G26, which I intend to keep loaded and accessable at home. I'm also the parent of 2 school age kids, so I also need to keep it safe and inaccessable to them

    So... who has good advise for quick-access bedside safes? I'm thinking of one of the one- or two-gun biometric safes, but have no experience with them. Any advice?

    Just picked up my first gun. It was for home defense and its a SW40MP. I use the Gun Vault, bio-metric version. Works fairly well, you do have to make sure your fingers are aligned. I Keep the Gun and xtra mags in the vault.

    I own the gun vault multi. Has enough room for two handguns, mags and personal stuff like passports. Very happy with it. I also have school age kids and do not have the biometric lock. The normal finger pad accessed lock is very secure so keep that in mind if money is a concern. Of course, I also have a browning floor safe in my basement for the illness I have, the symptoms of which are an inibility to exit a gun store without a product to test, and no comprehension of when enough is enough. So, I end up rotating a few pieces through my upstairs safe. Downstairs, unloaded. Upstairs, two mags and one in the pipe.

    Best way to secure the pistol is wearing the gun; then you always know where it is and have quick access to it. When I do leave mine by the bed I have a lockable cabinet is built into the headboard. Just strong enough to keep honest people honest or slow down a determined kid, but it usually stays unlocked unless the grandkids come over to visit. I can also lock and deadbolt the steel bedroom door I replaced to seriously keep visitors out, which is usually faster to open than the headboard cabinet. I like the story my family used to tell of catching my older brother when he was a child in mom & dad's bedroom sitting on the bed taking dad's revolver cartridges out trying to load them into his toy gun. Dad installed a lock the next day.
