    I have one Bassett and one Blue Tick Coon Hound.

    It's a hound thing! They sleep, they bark, they lounge. Good alarms too!

    The 6 digit code is something no kid will be able to get into. I'd just recommend storing the pistols inside with the safety ON. One of the rug rats might find it and rattle it, and I'd hate to hear about something awful happening involving a gun when a safety wasn't engaged.
    That's a pretty bold statement about the code...don't be so trusting of your technology. Kids may darn well surprise ya. I started busting various combo locks around age 6 or 7ish(I was in 1st grade) from the various safes my father had around the house. Everything from the turn-dial and/or knob kind to pushpads. He had a safe with a 4 digit combo that I opened in one afternoon. I was a kid with lots of energy and nothing but time. I had the time to try an endless supply of possible combinations. It took me all afternoon but I got it...Just some food for thought. Oh and no I'm not a bank robber by trade .

    I keep my ammo ontop and away from the children.

    The whole unit only cost 70 bucks and I used 3/8'' lagbolts to secure it to the studs. It's not going anywhere.

    Well I feel much better now, I got the same safe for 40 bucks, and mounted it tonight, had to rearrange the closet a bit. I particularly like the idea that with too many attempts it goes into a time delay status, and the key override may come in handy one day if needed.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    40 bucks?

    WHAT?

    DAMN! story of my life.

    As I said I mounted mine at eye level. Makes it easier to get at when you need it.

    I use a Vline safe for a CCW "arming station" hanging under the kitchen cabinet.



    I also have an Inprint Pistol Vault. This thing works very well for the first few prints. Beware that it does a sequential search for finger prints, so do your index 1st, then your wife's index, your middle, your wifes middle. It holds 14 prints but the last ones take a LONG time to open. The first one though is about 2 seconds.

    The school's ice-cream freezer also had one of those 4-digit locks. Took about 15 min.

    I bought a small lockbox with padded interior and punch code opening (with key backup) at Walmart for $25. Can't beat that deal. I drilled 2 holes in the bottom and bolted it to my bedside table. I unlock it before I go to bed and then lock it when I get up. It is big enough to hold 2 of my XD's (45 for me and 9mm for my wife). I also rigged up a couple of eye bolts and a cable lock to lock it to my seat frame in my vehicle when traveling. Excellent value and great peace of mind.

    I have two Browning Safes...one short, one tall...
    If I'm home, I have a gun on my person or 2' away...
    When I leave the house, one gun is on my person, everything else is in both safes along with other valuables.

    In a rare instance when there may be kids in the house, any weapon not on my person get locked up.

    Stay armed...stay safe!
