Yes it would be to heavy for a normal person to carry, and I don't think you could conceal it, as you are already trying to conceal your weapon. It's for when you are at home, and according to the article they can make secure closets, so I guess they could put one in an apartment.

working at a customers home is it mobile?

Are your customers in a war zone?

I guess you could get an armoured vehicle, and have the customer bring their computer to you when you park your armoured vehicle in their yard.

A safe room is indeed nice...

In reply to: Alternative to a weapon in the house

but if I was a criminal and thought that you could identify me and was in a homicidal mood we would simply have a COOK OUT -- you in the "safe room" (AKA oven) could be the entree.

A fireproof "safe room" would be an impossibility for MOST homeowners and practically ALL appartment dwellers.

Like everything other form of security personal security is comprised of a wide assortment of variables. Many of us like the additional insurance of a mobile defense--a firearm offers this.

A suggestion Josh...

In reply to: About as much good as....

Go to any reputable firearms dealer who also has some gun safes and take a look at some.

While the cheaper combination locks versions are what you seem to visualize you just might get a better understanding if confronted with the quick access versions. From locked container to firing position in less than 5 seconds is a capability that may surprise you.

Interesting

In reply to: A suggestion Josh...

I didn't know about those. Other than them having a combination, how kiddie-proof are they?

Collapse -
Depends...

In reply to: Interesting

they are mostly not only "kiddie proof" but adult proof too unless you opt for the types available that depend on either strength or digital length and dexterity. Some of those types are not suitable for adults with small hands or disabilities.

There are MANY options available.

I have a carry holster that requires a finger longer than 2 inches to release the revolver (and no, it can't be easily defeated with a stick).

Thanks

In reply to: Depends...

We're planning a move to a "Red" state so I may find myself learning more about this stuff than I want to know, LOL.

Josh, you might consider a "wall" style safe.

In reply to: Thanks

Mount a picture in front of it so that the child doesn't know the safe is there. If/when the child learns of it, s/he must still be able to reach it. Then once they are able to reach it, they must still be able to open it.

By the time they can do all of that, the child should've been taught gun safety.

And pulling a picture down won't cost you much time in an emergency.

We have one of those now

In reply to: Josh, you might consider a "wall" style safe.

But it's not in the bedroom. It would be hard to get to quickly in an emergency.

I've never owned a gun and so far, so good.
