Do you own a safe and lock up your guns? If so can you access them quickly if necessary?
Its a tough issue when dealing with teens. Most are totally responsible but some can't wait to show the guns to their firends and then the trouble begins. Their friends tell others and pretty soon the gun disappears or is played with.Maser said:My dad and I worked out a deal long ago and I am allowed to keep my guns in my room, but the ammo gets locked up in my dad's room. However, the HD gun in the house which is a Remington 870 is loaded and accessible by either me or my younger brother is God forbid we have to use it to defend ourselves when our parents are gone.

I leave loaded weapons all over the house, all the time. When visitors come, the firearms get locked up.
I have always wanted a safe(s), but it seems like every time I've saved the money for one, a good deal shows up on a firearm - so long safe.
My home and grounds have both passive and active security systems. I have never had a break-in - even when I lived in the barrio in East LA(man)
I have a rider on my homeowners insurance that pays full value - no deductible - for any firearms lost, stolen, or destroyed. I think it costs me about $50 a year(?).
I have a very curious 5 year old and I was shopping around FOREVER for a ACTUAL childproof quick access gun safe. I heard about the GunBox and watched their videos and did a lot of research. I ended up buying one after having a bunch of GunVaults break on me. I've never been happier. If the GunBox is moved in the slightest an alarm will sound. On top of it being childproof (they have a video on their website) it also gives me access to my gun in about 2 seconds or less. We (hubby and me) currently have all of our fingers programmed into the box so we don't have to think about which finger (or a code like the GunVault) during an emergency. No keys, no code, no combination, just my fingerprint. We have had 0 problems with the biometric reader too. It works every single time. I highly recommend these for anyone with kids!Do you own a safe and lock up your guns? If so can you access them quickly if necessary?
