Id rather take the chances of being unarmed if a robber breaks in than having a tragic firearms accident.
Im not sure whats up with kids these days. I had firearms in my bedroom with ammo at the age of 9. I was well aware of gun safety.. and NEVER ONCE even tthought about taking one to school or even playing with them..
A single shot 20 gauge and a 22cal were christmas gifts because i loved to go squirell and rabbit hunting.. But nowadays it seems as if it is in kids mind by default to meddle mischeiviously with guns..
Of course im from the southern states.
Hunting and fishing are simply a way of life for us... i dont know. Wish i did.

I think one of the biggest reasons most kids that are involved in a firearms related accident have them happen is because curiosity. The reason their curious is because their told that even though dad or gramps own a billion and one guns, their bad and you should never ever touch them. As a kid when I was simply told "don't touch that it's bad" I always wondered why it was bad, but when I was told it was fine or allowed to "inspect" things, even while being watched, I didn't have that urge to go and try to find out what makes something so bad that I'm never allowed to touch it yet everyone seems to have one.

Well stated.. I think you nailed it.
My dad and uncles rather enjoyed showing thier guns to me... much to mommas dismay, but were like "here check tbis out".. and here little mike, shoot this".... after feeling a single shot shotgun against my small shoulder witg no padding i knew damn well that thing was dangerous...
Thanks for the response..

^^^ Agreed with the two above. My Dad got it across to me the first day I had my first .22 bolt action rifle, my first non-BB rifle. I opened it; he explained the sights and how to open and close the bolt; we took it out in the yard for me to try out; I killed a squirrel. When that squirrel hit the ground and bounced like the dead meat it was, I realized what a rifle could do. I assume that was the plan; either way, the dog had a nice Christmas breakfast after I skinned it out.

I hope to give my kid a Christmas just like that some day.

One day. Right now, I'm happy our bills are paid and there is a little left over for gifts

It was my favorite Christmas gift ever. It is in the very back of my gunsafe, kinda hidden in a shadow for extra safety.

Don't worry about spending a ton on that first .22 to impress the kid; I found out yeeeeears later that mine was a second hand youth model bought from a family friend. I found out when my brother-in-law realized that it was also one of the rifles he learned to shoot on (BIL is a little older than me) and that his uncle? was the family friend. I killed many, many treerats with that thing and .22 short hollow points; eye shots became a point of pride.

If one of my nephews has a male child, I will probably pass it that way.

I guess I am just fishing for advice on where I can keep my home defense gun. My thought was to obviously have a larger gun safe but I just can't afford one right now. Any suggestions?

Thanks
imo RULE #1 if you have kids: BE AWARE OF WHERE THEY ARE!

if you keep a loaded SD firearm in your bedroom for example (high and out of reach), do not allow children to enter your bedroom, and know where your children are.....if you don't they may be playing with fire, knives, or one of MANY other things which could injure or kill them.

key lock boxes can be bought cheap and bolted down. when you leave the house, lock it up in a small lockbox. this takes a few seconds tops. keep the key to the box on your personal key ring. it will become habit faster than you imagine.

^^^^^This!^^^^^

if you have children, your methods of securing your firearms is much differnet than those like me with no children in the house.

i will add onto Hawkguy's comments as to suggest a biometric gun safe. my brother has one that he keeps his SD/HD pistol next to his nightstand. he or his wife can access it, but his daughters can't.
