Hows it going?
I am 19, live in FL. Been in the military (US Coast Guard) for almost three years now, became a federal LEO about 8 months ago.
Do NOT own a weapon.
Main reason I don;t own a weapon? My mother is afraid my little brothers will play with it and get hurt. I could use any help in trying to persuade her differently. My dad is fine with the issue but my mom basically says "My house, my rules" (Completely understandable)
Hopefully that will change soon.
Currently still live with my family, am planning to move out in the next year.
Good to meet you all.

Welcome from Hampton Roads Virginia. I use a handgun safe when in my home. One is in the den and one in the bedroom. I have a 6 year old and handgun safety is paramount. When I carry it is concealed (Don't SHow, Don't Tell policy) and the minute I am home the Baby Glock goes into the bedroom safe. I have a .38 that stays in den safe. The safe can be opened in about 3 seconds without looking so is readily available, but extremely safe.
Good luck, and I am pround you respect your moms wishes.
Welcome from Virginia. Tell her you will get a safe first and will keep it in there at all times when you are not shooting.
