We tust our son. But if he has friends over at our house we could be in another part of the house and they could find a gun if its not locked up... How do we explain that to their parents, considering the teenage suicide rate these days? At least, that's the way we feel about it - not that I'm saying there's anything wrong with other folks keeping guns unlocked in their homes.

I do like that idea about the fingerprint locks on the internet for $25.00! Cool!

Maybe you should just stick to using your pistol for home defense... it seems "easy" your words not mine. Keep the shotty llocked up, jut because a shotgun is a great home defense option its not the only one. I would be more concerned with over penetration with kids in the house regardless.

I use my handgun to get to my shotgun which I use to get to my rifle.

Cane, my friend...you took the words right out of my mouth. I'd be grabbing the first thing that was handy. That I have multiple options just means more holes in the bad guy (did I just say that out loud?)...and while I love my .45's, nothing says get down and stay down like a loaded mag full of slugs/buckshot.

Anyway, I didnt intend this thread to end up debating parenting "best practices" or what's strategies should be employed for home protection.

All that aside, there are some GREAT ideas in here. I'll let you know what I end up with a final solution. Thanks to all!

Welp, the prize goes to ...a 14 gun steel cabinet by StackOn. It's not ever close to being a gun safe, but it holds my two AR15s, my scatter gun and a .45 (or two) and a 9mm for the little zombies. Three point toggle locks, decent keyed lock... One twist and I can have a choice of rifle, shot or hand gun. Rack a round in to the chamber, and I'm ready to rock-n-roll. All this is 10ft from my bed, so if I hear the door alarm, I can be ready for a close encounter of the worst kind.

Some EXCELLENT ideas here...PVC pipe? Custom wood case with a bio lock?

PS if anyone wants a couple almost brand new hard cases, let me know! I'll make you a deal

Very nice!

Of course, you could mount it on a slide out tray under the bed for easy access.

I'm going to have to jack up my bed a few feet.

Anyway, I appreciate your feed back, but my OP was about how to secure my home defense weapon
+1 Education and exposure certainly help to remove the "forbidden fruit" appeal of Dad's guns and having kids that can confidently and correctly handle a gun goes a long way in preventing accidents but at the end of the day they are still kids, filled with insatiable energy and curiosity. Being overly cautious in this case, in my opinion anyways, is the right thing to do.

So I'm looking for a way where it can be loaded and stashed under my bed in some kind of secure, yet quickly accessed manner. I want to grab it and rack the action to chamber a round and be ready. I've got two boys in the house so safety is a major concern. Currently it's in a locked case with a trigger lock. Id have to find the keys, unlock the case, unlock the trigger and load up some buckshot.

My pistols are easy. They go in a biometric safe. Is there an easy and at least somewhat affordable way to secure Big Bertha where she's ready to go the the zombies show up at my bedroom door?


This may be right up your alley. The bedroom rack:
