I would not be able to live with myself if my baby girl killed herself because I had to be Mr. Commando.

though i don't have children, i have seen what my brother has done and he and i talked quite a bit about this subject when he purchased a pistol for HD usage. we ended up both on the same conclusion that a Bio-Metric safe of some sort was the best solution. safely securing the pistol from prying and curious hands, but still allowing fast access when or if needed.

when the time comes, instructional training and proper gun handling habits should be the next order. teaching children about guns is IMO the best safety procedure you can do when they are old enough to understand the danger of them. my neices are now 12 and 9 and we are showing them the proper handling of firearms. though right now all we are letting them shoot are my 22 pistols and rifles, i do show them the power of the shotguns and the larger caliber pistols so they know how dangerous guns can be if not handled safely.

and irregardless of how young they are, or how a person might think they couldn't operate a handgun or shotgun, please don't fall into this line of thinking. children can be very clever and all it takes is one accident to change your life for the worse, and it could happen in a split second. secure your firearms if you have children in the house. i saw the damage done to a family when an accidental shooting took place. not only was one child dead, it pretty much destroyed the family. the other son ended up years later committing suicide and the parents ended up divorcing. very sad situation.

Coincidentally I just came across this earlier today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIJFQO4DIxw has some good info on things to look for in small gun safes.

Also, I like that FAS1 safe in post #15. Earlier today I was watching this:

skip to about 22:00 where he talks about small bedside safes, although the whole video looks pretty good for information on safes in general.

Thanks for all the input everyone, like stated earlier, I will NOT be on the news or in court explaining why my child gained access to a firearm.. For the time being my pistol will be in my large closet safe/cabinet locked up at night and the shotgun will be on a wall mounted rack inside the closet out if reach.
Once my tax money comes I'll be researching the suggested bedside safes. Rest easy, no child or adult for that matter will have access to any of my firearms.
I will update, with pics once I get a safe.
Again, thanks everyone

Personally I was thinking more of on the couch or in a chuch -- we just don't want your DAUGHTER determining when you lock that HD pistol up right.

No worries, we're taking preventative measures to ensure she has no access at any time.

I've got a small stack-on safe in my closet. The rest of my firearms are locked in a locking rifle case in the basement. I don't have room for a full size safe right now. The ammo is in a different location. When i was four or five i came downstairs with my father's s&w k frame .38 spl and a round asking my mother "how does this work". My father never locked his guns up even after that. ....... just that one story made me want to lock mine up

I use a gun vault under the seat of my truck. But it is made to be mounted in a home. It has 4 push buttons on the top. The door is spring loaded. That would be my first choice. But there is no way a 2 year old is going to be able to rack the slide on a Kimber.

So you have a two year old? You would actually leave that to chance? My two year old daughter surprises me daily with things I didn't think she could do. While I agree I don't think she can rack the slide I'm not leaving it to chance, EVER.
