    Welcome! It's REALLY great to see a woman who is realistic about crime/violence and is willing to take a step toward protecting herself and her family. The guys have given great advice. As for a safe, my sister got me this for Christmas:



    It's large enough to house a couple handguns, magazines, a bit of ammo, and money. It comes with two keys for the lock, but the main lock is programmed with four buttons. There are countless variable ways to program the keycode, and it's got the cutouts so you could easily punch in your specified code in the dark. You can operate it with a battery (lasts about a year), or plug it in. You can also mount it (it comes with a drilling template).

    Trigger locks are dangerous. I don't want ANYTHING touching the trigger unless it's my own finger, which is all I have control over.

    As far as keeping the gun out of the hands of your son, consider applying for a CCW permit. That way you can have the gun concealed on you at all times, and the likelihood of your son sneaking off your own body is pretty slim. Not to mention, if you don't feel safe in your neighborhood, if and when you ever need a handgun for defensive, it might not be in the home.

    Good luck with your search for the right handgun. Also consider a 20-gauge Remington 870 to keep at home if you think home invasion is a possibility.

    as far as safes go - i found this at walmart... http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=7801927
    i bolted it to the floor in my bedroom closet, however you can put it just about anywhere, even a dresser drawer. the code is 4 digits and easy to open if you practice. you can keep the gun loaded and ready in there and still keep your child safe.

    Lisa, I agree with the information given. Something that works for me and you might think about. I have got a Concealed Carry Permit and Carry in my home. I have young Grandchildren in the home a lot. I keep all my guns locked in a safe except the one I am carrying. I might be in another room when an intruder kicks the door in and not have time to get to the safe and open it. I keep it within reach at night. A gun is of no use if you don't have it at the exact time you need it. Just some thoughts and the safety training comes first. You made the right decision to get education first.

    That's not a bad idea. Especially since you live in a bad neighborhood.

    With kids at home, the gun should be on your or in a safe.
