I have a soon to be three year old and a newborn in the house so guns are not left unattended at low heights in the house. The old model 11 comes out of the safe and hangs above the bedroom door when I am home. The mount looks like this but they are brass and have a leather liner. http://www.amazon.com/RackEm-Mount-Anywhere-Straps-Alternative/dp/B005A32EJ2/ref=pd_sxp_grid_i_0_1 . Unless the older one learns how to use a step ladder it is safe for now. I will have to rethink this as they get older.
