    Ive put the G19 in her hand, there would have to be another person, and the right circumstances, to all come together at the same tIme in order for her to actually pull the trigger? No safes, nothing other than a Vanguard or a Zach to cover the trigger? I cover the trigger even though I know she cannot actuate it on her own.

    I put mine on the bedroom closet shelf. I would rather take 8 steps than screw around with a safe in the middle of the night.

    I think the OP just wants a safe to keep the gun when he's not in bed or when he's not carrying the gun on his person.

    That's not a bad idea. I'm not sure that will be a good location for me but I won't know until I'm done with my master bedroom reno. We are taking two bedrooms and turning them into one with a large walk-in closet. I believe I would have to cross past the bedroom door to get to the closet. Expat, what are your thoughts on that?

    It’s all comes down to location and if you are going to mount/bolt it down.

    Put a good lock on your bedroom door and keep your door closed at night while your pistol is in your nightstand holster.

    Thats one option.

    Or buy a hornady RFID/biometric pistol and or rifle safe. I love all of mine. Also have a couple gun vault brand pistol safes with just digital push button code locks that looks like a hand on the top. Im not sure who makes them for hornady? The rifle ones are good for vehicles or under the bed. Or you can stand them up inside a closet. On all of them as soon as you use the rfid tag or enter the code or fingerprint, the doors fly open.

    You can bolt all of the above down so they cant just be picked up and played with. The safariland holsters are awesome but you cant just leave a gun in one where a kid can get it. Kids WILL figure them out. You must lock up your guns with kids. Bedroom door locks work only of you use them. If you are gonna forget to close your door behind you if you get up in the middle of the night then dont go that route with the holster. Get a gun vault. But then again, why would you get up and not take your gun with you?

    That sounds too far away.
    my other option would be if you have a large dresser or other piece of furniture that you could put it on top of. I have one of those wood and glass locking 6 gun cabinets on my side. If I had to worry about kids, I would feel okay putting a pistol on top of it. The wife’s dresser is big and heavy, mirror with flat top. I could lay a couple guns up there.

    Fort Knox Pistol Safe. Have been using one for a while now - went from a GunVault to it because the batteries kept dying out of nowhere. Great customer service from GunVault but after a couple of returns, I opted to go with a mechanical lock. YMMV.

    Great ideas and things to think about. I'll wait until I get the rooms done and see what I do for nightstands. I may be able to bolt a safe to the floor or under the nightstand if I build and install the floating ones we have in mind.

    I'll need to figure out a way to make it stout so the safe doesn't pull it off the wall.

    Or...I could build something hidden...
