i need some opinions on this one. i have two young boys ages 8 and 5. i keep all my weapons locked in the safe, always. i've had two occasions in the middle of the night that i've responded to what have turned out to be false alarms. this entails waking up and going to the safe, getting the combination right while deep in a freshly awoken fog and adrenalin coursing through my veins, getting the mossberg 500 and then going to investigate the possible threat.
i've been thinking of a way to keep the 500 accessible to me in a safe place outside of the safe. my thought is to mount it on the inside of the closet, above the door. who would think to look up there? does this seem like a good place? is there a better place? remember, the big wild card here are my two young kids and my interest in them never picking it up when i'm not around to supervise until they are old enough to do so.
