Gun Safes and Children

Do your kids know where your safe is? At what age do you tell them how to get into the safe?

Our safe would be kinda hard to miss… yes, they know. The great grandbaby is six, she’s got the gun safety thing down but its going to be a while before she gets access to the safe. Still, it’ll probably be well before she gets to start dating at the age of 30. :laughing:


I have a 15 years old daughter and twin girls that are 7 years and all 3 know exactly where the safe is located but only the 15 year old my wife and I have access to the safe for now. I constantly teach my kids safety and the dangers of firearms if not used properly or placed in the hands of evil people.


I have three safes (separate for firearms and ammo) in our house. My 17 year old know how to access the safes and use the handgun safely.

My babies are a 26 yo girl now an attorney in Chicago and a 24 yo Marine now in college in NW Ohio. He knows the combinations. She doesn’t care to. Both are trained, him more than her.
