Factors to Consider When Securing Gun

March 21, 1993

Purchasing a locking device may be the best choice, some experts say. But before you buy something you may not need, they suggest you first decide what your needs are in securing a gun. For example:

--If you are concerned about a child accidentally getting to your gun, there are some simple and inexpensive things you can do, such as purchasing a gun case and a small padlock.

--If you want to secure a gun from adults as well as children, there are devices that lock the gun in a hard metal case that also can be bolted to the floor or furniture.

--If you want quick access to the gun for your protection, but also want to secure your gun from children as well as adults, there are devices that can offer you that option.

--If you are concerned about a burglar entering your residence and taking your gun along with other valuable items, but aren't as concerned about having quick access, there are gun safes that will help deter theft.

--Finally, if price is a concern, there are devices to fit just about any budget.
