just one safe?

No children in the house

One or more firearms are out at all times someone is home

mine sits between the wall and my dresser. While it is not bolted to the floor or wall (wife would not allow that) it is bolted to two 2"x4"s that are 8' long and run behind the dresser. That would require that someone move the dresser to move the safe and either have a saw to cut them off or try to maneuver around the house with a pair of 8' studs and then try to fit it in a car like that. Won't stop a really determined crook, but will stop kids.

Our pistols are not locked up at night. No kids in the house so pistols sit at the ready in a sock drawer. shotgun is close by too. Others quick to get are in a wall safe behind, a, something. Thens theres the big safe down stairs.

My wife said to bolt the night stand to the wall. I said naw. Just hope she isn't right. Hate to have to replace a gun and a nitestand.
I would bolt it to the wall. If the gun, safe and nightstand are stolen are you really gonna care about the safe and the nightstand?

I think anywhere you put it it will get pried off and stolen. Its just to keep it out of kids hands.

Most of my guns are in a couple of safes in a walk in closet....close the door and nobody kinow it's there. I have a "bed buddy" for my carry gun, and a under cabinet safe for the .357. I have no children living here, but if any visit they have no idea I have weapons. I do have a range on my property, out of sight from the house. But curious fingers from little ones have nothing to find.
Put your safe whee it will do the most for you and those you want to protect.

Not good enough.

Police officer gets off work, walks through his house undressing towards the bathroom. Puts his gun on the bed. Girlfriend sees his car home, and while baby sitting a neighbor's toddler, lets herself and toddler in to his apartment with her key, or hidden key. Toddler races ahead of girlfriend, finds gun on bed, and in a bedroom all alone the only sound both adults hear is boom.

Toddler shoots his head off his shoulders.

Your responsibility to stow your firearm does not end once inside your home.

That's a bit of a stretch.
