Single Shotgun Safe?
 
Switching from a pistol to a tactical shotgun for home protection. I keep all the other guns in a safe out in the garage, but need advice or ideas for a single shotgun safe or way to keep this secure as we have a 4 year old daughter. Would be in bedroom. Suggestions for something that isn't huge or massively expensive that can securely store 1 shotgun?

shotlock... mounts to wall and you have a 4 number code to get the gun out.

Two ideas - monster vault under bed and AMSEC DV652 under bed (smaller of the two) neither is single gun safe.

What shotgun?

Well there you go...Just throw the shotgun in the closet.

I have this safe under the bed, and it is outstanding for the purpose. The push button lock allows quick access but keeps curious kids out.You can undo the lock in less than two seconds.There is also a foam bad and velcro straps inside to keep it secure if the safe is moved. Since my kids are now older, I now just keep the shotgun in the safe unlocked.

i grew up with a wall rack. My son did as well. It was high enough that he couldn't get to it until he was old enough to know better. It is very difficult for a kid to shoot themselves with a shotgun, so you are a little safer than with a handgun. If the ammo is going in a small safe anyway you are all good.

Why not go all out?

Mossberg used to make a single gun wall rack with a key lock. It was called "Loc-Box" It's part number is 16440 I believe....

How about just mounting it in the closet just above the door.

See above.

Keep em comin guys!

By the way going to sell the handgun. Will list it on here with pics this weekend. Sig P226 MK25 fired about 50 times.

And closet won't work due to layout I'd have to make 3 tight turns and avoid doors before I'd be back in bedroom.

I gotta assume the kid would also bring dad's gun too, no?

If your way of thinking takes you straight to edge case scenarios I might suggest you think about that dog you have. No, not the hot dog.

You can be an unhelpful asshole and try to spin this to a pit bull thread if you would like. Go for it.

I see to it firearms in my home are locked up at all times, loaded or not.

For those providing helpful solutions thank you.

Understand that is good idea for a smash and grab burglary but with TorFed's daughter living there it might not be a great idea, at least not in a couple more years. JMHO.

Do you have room in the bedroom for a wall shelf? Been thinking about getting one of these myself. Just don't EVER let her see you use it. Whatever you choose, you will probably have to change strategy when she gets older anyway.

Those could work if they had a lock. Isn't there a company similar to that that has like a magnetized lock system?
