I've installed a quick access safe with keypad in a location that she chose.
Good start. Now, how about situations in which someone enters violently and suddenly and is then between your wife and that location?
I remember one writer discussing keeping guns in more than one location.
i thought about that but with our layout it would be problematical. If I were anywhere
downstairs, and entry through the front would cut me off tfrom the stairs to the bedroom. If we were in the kitchen, any entry would be a disaster.
Unless of course we had comb safes in a number of places.
She's probably a long way from being ready for my solution, but you may want to think about the issue and discuss it with her.
My solution? A gun in a pocket holster. Never thought I'd and up doing that.
