My wife are at the point that children are not that far down the road. We are stable now; goods jobs, home, the whole deal. My question is how do you guys handle and store firearms in your home? Right now I only have a .22 and a 12ga for homedefense that is hanging concealed under the bedframe on my side of the bed. Like I said now that we are stable I am ready to start building a collection. I plan on a safe, so locked arms are not the issue. I would still like something close to me (say at night) for obvious reasons. Handgun / stotgun doesn't realy matter. I've looked into handguns and the 1911 looks like a it may be joining us soon. I guess what I'm really asking is about is kids and safety. I was raised in a house with guns and was taught at the earliest age that I could understand fully, the respect needed with living with let alone handling firearms. So basically, what do you guys do?
