I think this is the right spot for this topic as it doesn't relate to concealed carry....
I read someone mentioned they keep a firearm on the head board and that they have children aged 14 and 16. I also keep a firearm near the bed unlocked, but was wondering how those with children do it and how it relates to the kids' ages.
I always want to keep a firearm near me, but those terrible thoughts always creep into your mind of your child sneaking in while you're asleep, or maybe you forget to lock the gun up next morning. Just a couple things that have crossed my mind.
So, how do some of you folks (with children) do this? We don't have kids yet but it's a topic we talk about.
