This looks like a long running post but I'll throw my two bits in.
I have 2 Cannon safes in our masterbed walk-in closet. My wife gets a little pissy about it but its my side of the closet so I can do as I please yes? I like that they are close by and out of sight from visitors or anyone else who pops in. My biggest worry is I can't fit another in the closet and the 2 I have are pretty much full. These things are over 700lbs each so they are going no-where!

Just to chime in here, yeah always use a safe. Especially if you have kids in your house, or people whom you do not want to get control of the weapon. You don't always need one of those great, big deals. I have a little drawer safe that I keep like car titles and other important papers in. But yeah, it's never a bad idea to have a safe. Just having a safe doesn't mean you have to keep it locked 24/7. I keep mine unlocked when I'm near it. Otherwise, you get a home invader and it takes you critical seconds to open it up.

That isn't completely true. That what their base policy covers. You can itemize your guns and other valuables for as little as $2-5 a month. I called USAA this week and they told me that to itemize $3k worth of firearms with no deductible it would only cost an extra $3.00 a month on my renters insurance. Pretty sweet

Absolutely!! I have two fire resistant safes and they are bolted to the floor and wall. I have just too much money invested in firearms not to protect them.

I keep my loaded handguns bolted to the floor with a quick 5 digit code. Rest of the guns are locked in a combo safe and all my ammo is locked in a heavy footlocker. Can't be safe enough with children running around even if you do practice gun safety. I'm not really worried about my children picking up a gun. I'm more concerned about one of their friends picking one up.

I think the use of gun safes are an absolute must. With the exception of my CW, all my firearms are locked in the safe when not in use.

I have a safe under the bed that has a keypad lock and is attached to the bed.

I have a Pistol Box above my office drawer.

My long arms are located in the closet, and each of them are locked in some way. I may decide to put a lock on the closet, besides I have other stuff in the closet like holsters, cleaning supplies, and such.
