very fast to open, no need to look at it. Incidentally, no biometric anything for me: I do not want even a thought of parts of my body taken away from me or my loved ones in a hope to use them on biometric lock.
I didn't buy guns to have them sitting in a glass case to be looked at or in a safe so no one could touch them. I bought them to be ready.

Everything I have set up for HD and my current CCW gun remain loaded, but are kept in individual V-Line vaults (simplex mechanical locks, same combo).
The rest of my firearms are unloaded in a safe room with a vault door. The expensive ones and family heirloom stuff reside in a safe within that room.

I have a 10 year old daughter and she has friends over constantly. I have a couple of pistols that I keep loaded in my safe. My daughter knows not to touch my guns, but I cannot take chances with her friends.
OK I gota think a min. here! 3 revolvers loaded,2 semi. autos one 18 round and 1 10 round. 1 mossberg 12ga. 18'' with light and ONE FIREARM with laser (shockwave)!! All others in safe unloaded. Oh and one more, that pesky little 6oz. P32 that hides all by its self!!!!! Those are the ones I can remember without looking in my wallet for MY LIST! HEY I'm an old FART!!!!!!!
I have no kids in the house but grandkids visit often. As others have stated, if the guns are in the safe, they are unloaded. If they are my carry pieces and home defense guns, they are loaded with an empty chamber (except for a mule earned double barreled shotgun). When the grandkids come, I remove the magazines of my loaded handguns (there are three). The shotgun? Only I can reach it at the moment.
No kids at home or as visitors, all mine are loaded at all times.
At the over 75year old time in my life, I don't want to have to remember which is loaded and which is not!
Ergo, all are loaded!

We are both elderly, no Children here. Most of my Firearms are always locked in the hidden Safe Some are Loaded and Some aren't. Besides the 357 snubbie that is always on me, there are 3 other loaded weapons immediately accessible. My Wife keeps her J Frame in the Bedroom, and my 2 Secret Weapons. There is a Charter Arms Undercover .38 in Both Bathrooms hanging on a Hook under the Sinks, behind the spare Toilet paper. An invitation for a Home Invader to make a Fatal Mistake by letting one of us use our bathroom.

Just me in my place. These babies pictured below are my defense...and always loaded..Winchester 1200 Defender, Norinco M1911A1, and a Kimber Ultra + CDP, which is my carry weapon. They only get locked up when the grandchildren visit.
ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED...until --> Y O U <-- verify. Shoot straight, Be safe!!!
My home defense guns, yes. Those in the safe, no

About once a year some event or another will concern my wife enough to ask me yet again, "What do I have to do if I need to use a gun in the safe?"
My answer is always the same, "Point and pull the trigger."
Ironically, she's more accurate on the range than I am.
