I have a Winchester electronic gun safe that I picked up at Bass Pro. It provides peace of mind.
I have one Bassett and one Blue Tick Coon Hound.
It's a hound thing! They sleep, they bark, they lounge. Good alarms too!

"Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the crap out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

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.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 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!

Good idea, some of us must lock guns somehow [ by law ] if children live in the home
