« on: October 23, 2007, 05:55:27 PM »
This thread is for discussion of matters pertaining to keeping our homes safe. 

Kicking it off with a most-certainly-not-for-homes-with-children caution, here's this:

Yeah, but the second one is $700 as opposed to $40!  :-o

I definitely struggle with this issue, as I own a firearm, and I have a 3.5 year old son.  I have a small keypad safe on a high shelf in my closet where I keep my gun whenever I'm not carrying it.  It's definitely safe from my boy up there, but it really isn't very practical in a late-night home defense situation...

I dunno, looks to me like "the backup" option would always be catching your shins and getting smacked by the vacuum cleaner and such. Combined with the safety issue I'd not have it in my home.

Have a steel box with a simplex lock on it for my hot pistol. Primary home defense weapon is a Remington model 870 shotgun. Hangs up high and out of sight in the closet on a rack I made out of 2 pieces of half inch dowel mounted on a 1 x 4. Keep the action open with a cable lock run through it to keep the kids out of trouble, though all three of mine have had their share of range time and know how to handle a firearm safely.
