I live alone out here with my three sons. I have very good reasons to be armed, and a constant expectation of trouble. I will save that story for another day. With three young children in the house, a loaded gun at my bedside would be neglagent at best, after all they are the ones I am due to protect. I need to keep a weapon at the ready, the only time I may have to get locked and loaded is the time it takes my front door to get kicked in.
How can I effectively lock up a weapon and still have very fast access to it? I was thinking of a bedside safe with pushbutton controls but this could be difficult in the dark. All the gun locks I have seen are a pain!
I own a Glock 26, Ruger LCP, and a Remington 870 magnum with a long barrel.
Just for the record, the last time I called the 911 it took a deputy 40 minutes to get here. Oh, and this county is fine with releasing nut case violent BGs out on a felony conviction after sitting for 60 days!
My sons are very young, 2 years, 5 years, and 8 years old. It needs to be secure.
