    Glad I saw this because I was going to ask the same. My son is 6 yrs old and I am not niave enough to think my kid isn't curious when my eyes aren't staring at the back of his head despite what I have taught him. I'm not a fan of the small gunsafes and currently either carry on me or it's between the mattress out of sight when sleeping. Back on when I get up and maybe that is sufficient, am I overthinking this (if that is possible)?

    ...the thing is, you can go for 50 years and never need one...most cops never fire a shot in their whole career...but WHICH trip to the garage for another wrench are you going to surprise a thief...WHICH time is it going to be your door that's kicked open during supper...trouble doesn't make an appointment...be prepared..

    ...if you can't have it on your person...keep it within arms' reach...if someone kicks a door in, there's no time to open a gunsafe...or go to the next room...read the stories of a handful of home invasions...they happen fast...and more often...

    ...my wife hated guns and didn't want them around...we had several stashed where I and the 3 boys knew where they were and she was protected though she never knew they were there...she's realized a couple of years ago that the world's not like she thought it was...has her permit and her own .38 now...

    ...better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...kinda like homeowners' insurance...

    I call it the 2 second rule...if one cannot get to a gun within 2 seconds, it is too far away...sad indictment of our society today, but it is what it is.

    Exactly. I know too many people that have a gun for home defense, and yet it's either all the way across the house at any given time, or some (and this is a scary thought) have it locked up in a manner that does not allow quick access. Imagine, a home defense weapon that you can't effectively defend your home with...

    I also think being able to access it with one hand is important.

    You'd get awfully lonely out there on the sofa.

    My children know MY KINGDOMS RULES and if broken will face the WRATH of god, ME! My HD weapons are accessible within a moments notice and ready to engage if need be, GOD forbid.

    As for a possible threat, I own a Canine that will scare the hell into you instead out of you. My Buster is a 24 hour Radar that Patrols my home and does an outstanding job it!
