With my VERY limited experience, this sounds like a valid point. With that in mind, what would you suggest to accommodate your point, as well as provide fast access in an emergency?
There are a myriad of cheap wall safes on ebay that you just cut the Sheetrock or paneling out in a closet or behind a picture bolt to the studs and night leave it unlocked. Mine has a key backup and a digital 3 digit to 8 digit lock. its in my closet next to my bed. even locked I can open and have gun in my hand in 15 seconds.
But usually at night it is in my nightstand anyway
