If you are depending on the pistol to keep kids from firing it, this is not the best way to think.

Keep firearms secured, if there is any chance children or any other persons you do not want to be playing with or using it can get to it they will. Storing it up high in the closet will not work, kids will find them.

This is part of the responsibility involved with ownership.
A "safety" will not keep a firearm safe.
Kids will flick it off and pull the trigger, they are able to do so.

Safety classes for kids are required but are not a gaurantee of protection.
A small safe that you can open quickly if needed will work great.
Do some searching and I bet you can find a nice fingerprint or number sequence code unit to keep it in when you do not have control of it.

Couldn't agree more, I have 3 small kids. I have a 35 long gun fireproof safe in the basement for all my firearms and small digital lock safe mounted in the closet next to my bed with the XD9 in it. None of my firearms are ever left out of the safe at any time. it takes less than the count of 5 to get to my closet safe, key in the code and pull out the xd.

Most of the guys here probably wouldn't take a second look at Taurus, but their guns have improved a lot. Taurus puts an special allen head lock on their latest firearms. They supply two keys with them. The allen head locks prevent the firearm from being used. In the revolvers, the cylinder can be opened, but when locked, neither the hammer nor the trigger work. It takes a quarter turn to unlock the safety.

yea that little allen head screw thing is a waste of time. My Remington 700 rifle HAD one on it, I swapped the bolt out for an older model without it. Its just one more thing to get in the way when your in a pinch.

My rifle is for deer hunting, I just know If I ever used that damn little locking thing that the one time I would see a trophy buck, I'd go to squeez the trigger and nothing would happen...shot missed.

Rem 870 or Glock depending on what type of gun you want to go for. Don't get a high point, they are CRAP. Glocks and Rem 870s are dependable.
