I started with a cabinet. Then upgraded to a real safe when I realized the value of my collection. I have a bunch of trigger locks in a box out in the garage. I have no use for them at all. You can even buy a small pistol safe at Harbor Freight for like $40.00 I have one bolted to the shelf in my bedroom closet.

MasterLock has pretty well figured out a usable trigger lock. I use this style with the combo instead of keyed.
I find that these are quicker with no key to loose.

Amazon has a sample listing http://www.amazon.com/MasterLock-MASTERLOCK-Trigger-Lock-ComBINATION/dp/B004EPNGSA

I started with $25 keypad lock boxes from harbor freight. They jeep guns locked away. They won't prevent theft but they keep kids out.

Moved up to a larger one for $100. Keep all my ammo and non carry pistols. It was 85 pound empty. It will deter smash and grab thieves...two guys and a truck no.

I only use trigger locks on my rifles...

Also three digit combo locks can be hacked in two hours if you have to go through all 999 combinations or 5 mins if you get lucky. I don't trust them. Much prefer 4 digit.

Any reason you want a trigger lock as opposed to something like this
http://omegagunlock.com/autopistols.htm ?

I also want to piggyback on those suggesting a safe. I bought a gun cabinet for around $100 from one of the big box stores and while it's no safe and not fire resistant for more than seconds, it will keep children and wandering guests from getting into trouble at my house.

I agree on the cabinet, Stack On makes good ones for decent prices. I have never seen that Omega but from the looks of it, it appears as though it may take longer to get that off than a trigger locking device. Add to that the fact that I have to stick something down the barrel of my gun, possibly at in the dark? I don't think that's for my guns. Does anyone have experience with these Omega locks?

Consider a good quality handun safe for your HD gun. That's the one you will need in a hurry, but with kids it needs to be secure as well. The others could go in a cabinet while you save up for a safe.

A few years ago we had temporary custody of my SO's sister's son, so I started looking at trigger locks. But everything I read about them, and saw first hand told me that they were worthless. The ones I checked out that could be taken off fast enough to use for SD could also be taken off with a simple smack of the lock, and the ones that didn't come off from bumping were a pain to get off with the key, or combo. So I bought a safe, and one of those bedside finger safe's for our carry guns. If we weren't carrying, they were in that finger safe.

Seriously do. It even bother with a trigger lock. It can be taken off in 15 seconds with a small screwdriver. I am interested in the Omega locks. Anyone have any experiences with it.
