    I turned one small closed to a locked room and keep my guns unloaded there. It has a hi shelf so I guess is good for now, my kids are 1 and 3 years old!

    Don't know how I survived. Grew up in a house with ready to go firearms. I did not know that any house did not have a Model 12 loaded and ready in the closet or a 1911 in that tall chiffarobe top drawer. I seem to remember something about respecting rules and limits or getting your butt swatted.

    The hard thing about practicing good firearms security is that we get into a routine that we follow religiously. That's a good thing ........... to a point. But, after a while we get over confident or complacent thinking that were are secure when perhaps we are not. Every now and then it's a good idea to run an inventory and an ammo check. Pull all yuor guns from the safe and their hiding places, check them over, unload them, reload them, put the safeties on, lock the ones you're storing, and check them against an inventory sheet to make sure that you know where every gun you own is! The life you save by doing this just might be your daughters, or your sons, or one of your grand kids! You owe it to yourself to keep them safe!

    When kids are very small, I agree you need to keep them out of rooms, locked doors and constant supervision, and when they are older they need to know better. Firearms are no different than light sockets or house hold cleaning chemicals, bath tubs, power tools... People need to supervise their kids... Just my opinion.
    +1 on this. My upbringing was the same. We had 1911's and other various rifles and shotguns everywhere. Loaded and ready to go. I was an only child and wouldn't dare touch without permission, and that meant supervision.

The gun that is placed in a spot is hard for a adult to get to and impossible for a child. I feel secure in there locations and my night gun is in a quick open safe.
    Thats all that is required, a denial of access.

    Mine are 5 and 8. As they get older you will need more secure storage. But, consistency with the firearms and teaching safety is paramount.

    I am a firm believer in a good ass whoopin when it is deserved. Most kids these days dont know what an ass whoopin is, let alone ever heard the phrase "go get your self the switch you want to get whipped with." My grandpa told me that twice, after that I didn't get out of line. My daddy would just bust my ass with the old leather belt. That happened alot, but NEVER for messing with the guns.

    The only easy day, was yesterday!

    I learned my lesson the first time when I brought in the thinnest switch I could find. Pissed my mother off enough that there was probably more bark in my backside than on the bush! I can't for the life of me remember what I did, but you can bet I never even thought about doing it again.

    Back on topic, I keep all but two of mine in a locked closet with the ammo in a different location except for my 24/7 on my hip and the BlackHawk in a quick open safe in the nightstand

    Guns are stored in a couple secure locations. Ammo is stored in a different secure location. We don't have kids of our own but the nieces and nephews come over regularly. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Yep! I grew up in a home where Dad and later my older brothers had rifles and shot guns readily available although never loaded unless they were going to shoot them. Yes I knew where they were and where the ammunition was, but I never handled them unless Dad or my older brothers were with me. Had Dad caught me "playing" with one of them I probably wouldn't be here today, as Dad would have whooped the living daylights out of me!!!

    I never had to learn the same lesson twice and most of them carried over to other "NO-NO's" too!
