Remember a gun that is not accessible or is unloaded is no longer a weapon.

Around here it is not a question if a violator will get shot just how big the hole will be? I recently had to add another lock box in the basement due to a recent overstock. Just a couple stay within reach, a shotgun and handgun is all that is out at all times. That I know of anyhow, I am sure pops has a few I don't know about here or there but there are no kids around and theft is not an issue. Oops just found one LOL.

as you get older... there will, more than likely be kids that come and go. We thought very much the same and then my niece spit out the cutest little rug-rat, so we have him up whenever we can and have to watch him like a hawk while he's here.

Oh I meant living here. Yes we have kids in and out of the house at times, but the room it will be in is one that no one goes into and it will be behind a closet door. But yes that doesn't mean they would not find it.

About every couple of weeks here in the Detroit area some kid (young kid 8-9 y.o.) finds a gun in grandma's bedroom (for example) and blows his head off, or his brother's head off. Kids WILL find your gun, and their natural curiosity and exposure to weapons (TV, games, etc.) will make them pick it up.
Read some crime stats regarding kids and guns. It is always sad, and the news folks always interview the parents (or aunt/uncle) and the story is always "the gun was always kept in the drawer, on top of the dresser, etc. away from the kids)

But of course that could never happen to you.

Well first off I never said that would never happen to me, and why do you think I want a safe to put them in?

I have three of the 500ish buck Winchester's from Tractor Supply. "Strong" is a relative term. I'm sure it could keep a crack head out for 5 minutes, but you can get into them with a 20v angle grinder in under a minute I'd guess. My goal is fire protection, and they claim 30 minutes.

I own a number of safes of various sizes.

Stack-on: cheap, not good for much but keeping kids out.

Winchester: heavy, thick, and roomy. This one is about 600 lbs. Combo dial lock (older model), 1" bolts on at least 3 sides, 1.25" hinges, fully padded interior.

Liberty: bought with our new house. Probably 800 lbs. Push button code lock. Same hinge and bolt stats as the Winchester. Lighted and padded interior, with a fully pocketed door panel. Newest safe I own.

Cobalt: the granddaddy of em at 1200+ lbs. 1.25" bolts, about 30 of them. 3 1.5" hinges, with a dial combo lock. Full padded interior. Will not fit through the door without taking the door jamb apart... The walls are 1.5" thick steel.

These weights were all "empty" and approximations. My advice, buy the biggest one you can manage, keeping location in mind. A refrigerator dolly is a must when moving these heavy beasts.

Also, the sharp corners will cut 2" ratchet straps... Don't ask me how I know.

94 Bronco XLT. Beefy 351, 6" , 37's, 4.88: burnt
86 Bronco custom, 4" 37's, locked 4.56, 300 i6 4 bbl, np435/208
96 f350 XL, rclb, 351, c6, BW4407 xfer
78 f150 Ranger, 351m, t18, np205, rusty
90 f150, 95 f250, 96 f350 psd: stolen, sold, and burnt, respectively.
