Please go to the Honey Hole and have a look at my post "Stillllll Waiting"....you won't believe what I am going through getting a permit on Long Island NY
Also, please remark on how you all safely store your handguns in a manor for quick access (2 small kids) in case of an emergency.

I have little kids and I keep all firearms locked up. My kids know about guns and that they aren't allowed to touch them and that they must tell an adult right away if they see one. I have tested them and would recommend you do the same with your kids. I am not willing to take the risk of a gun falling into a kid's hands and therefore I have to sacrifice immediate access.
The best thing to do is live in an area with low crime and have a big dog or two. The dogs should give you enough time to get your gun out of the safe if you have one of the quick access safes. If you live in an area with high crime just get a concealed carry permit and keep the gun in your pocket. This way you have immediate access and know little hands aren't touching it. It seems based on your other post that this wouldn't be an option for you, though.
