1. Get a proper holster
2. If you're carrying keep it on you.. in the holster
3. If your not carrying...lock it up. It's irresponsible to do otherwise with kids.
4. The only time your finger should be on the trigger is after you have identified and acquired your target and are ready to engage.
5. Invest in some training

#5 was not meant to be derogatory. I mentioned getting some training based off your first post. There is nothing wrong with being cautious. Take another look at 1-4. The weapon is not going to go off by itself. Have you ever carried a revolver?

Adding a firing pin lock would be very difficult. Instead practice smart storage. Lock your ammo in a separate storage area from your firearm. Put a trigger lock on your firearm. And, lock your firearm in a sealed cabinet.

That'd three locking mechanisms and two storage areas that would need to be breached by children to attain the items necessary to fire off a round.

This strategy does limit your home defense ability, as obviously you wont have ready access to your firearm -- but your kids wont either

There are a lot of people carrying Glocks and Glocks dont have external safeties. Learn and practice safe gun handling and you will be OK .

I was also worried about not having a saftey on my first handgun, but good handling and practice, and you'll get comfortable. Be safe!

I believe that the gun already has a firing pin lock, but I may be wrong. IF you have the schematics or an exploded view of your gun you should see it, on the slide, I think it's located under the rear sight. someone correct me if I'm wrong...
