    Good article. Mike typically where do you suggest one keep a gun while at home? Say you are working on the computer or at night while asleep, what is the best place to keep it?

    Also maybe for a future blog, but in regards to your home break-in I’d like to hear what you suggest to help keep your home safer from break-ins?

      Hi Ken,

      I think if the gun isn’t ON you (or right next to you), then it should be in a safe (locked up). This is especially true if you have children in the house. The quick-access safes are nice (biometric or push-button combination).

      A lot of guys “home carry.” That means even at home, they have a holstered gun on them. Why not?

      That said… I believe in teaching gun safety to children at an early age. If my kids came across a gun, I’m confident they would know exactly what to do. One should consider that his / her children may not come across a firearm at THEIR home, but rather somewhere ELSE. Even if you don’t own a gun, you should teach your kids about gun safety. We teach them about fires, strangers, water, etc. Why not firearms?

      But, I keep it locked up, if it’s not directly under my control.

    Great article! My husband has a G 19, but I haven’t fired it. I guess I am worried about the kickback. Not quite sure why since my husband got my 50 clay pigeons with a shotgun for my birthday…talk about kickback and sore arm! Good for you for teaching your son gun safety. I plan to take my girls on biathlons (skiing or running and 22s) when they are old enough. Talk about losing accuracy. After 5k I am just happy to hit the target anywhere! There is always something to learn.

      Those Olympic biathletes are AMAZING. Most people have no idea how hard it is to do what they do.

      The G19 is probably the most popular Glock model of all time. Great gun.
