    An alternative to the trigger lock:


    This will keep the action open and prevent a round from being chambered, and nothing needs to get stuck into the trigger guard. You can keep the pistol grip if you so desire.

    There's also the V-Line long-gun case:

    I was thinking of mounting one of those shotgun holders like the cops have in their cars. I have seen the ones that have a switch that opens a lock that secures the gun. The idea is to build a shroud to cover the trigger guard and mount the switch in a secret location.

    I can't remember the brand, but they can be bought on ebay......

    like this one.

    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!

    I too have a 3 1/2 year old (boy), so I keep my HD guns secured. My primary HD gun is my Benelli M1S90 which I keep under the bed in a V-Line vault:


    The mechanical 5 button simplex lock is quick and the vault keeps the gun secure and out of sight. An added benefit is my gun dusting is greatly reduced. I also have one of their "Top Draw" models for my HD pistol.

    I do not like triggerlocks. I have dry-fired my mossberg 590 with one installed. Also with my G17. And one of my 1911s. It did take effort, but it still fired.

    Its not a problem if the cross-bar for the lock will fit behind the trigger, but on just about all single-action firearms, it wont fit behind the trigger.

    I'm sure we're all familiar with rule #3. Now, with a trigger lock, you're not only putting something in the tiggergaurd, but something that will fire the weapon with a sharp blow to the device you've locked into place. There shouldn't be anything in your triggergaurd unless its your finger and you intend on firing. JMNSHO.
