Default Shotgun Quick Access Safe

Like many of you my shotgun will generally be my first weapon of choice if I need to defend myself.

Seems I see lots of small safes designed for quick access to pistols but I can't find much for shotguns. Ideally somthing sized for a single shotgun with keypad entry, either electric or mechanical. It wouldn't matter if it was fireproof or not as I would be using it for just the one firearm, basically I want somthing DOJ approved, for legal liability, that I can still get my shotgun in a hurry.

I know, I can always take my shotgun out of the safe everyday and put it back in when I leave, but that gets old. BTW- I have no children in the house to worry about.

So how do you guys that have a shotgun as your first "go to" gun store it?

I leave one by the door, and one by my dresser.

You can get small long guns safes that mount inside your wall...



I've also seen locks that mount to your wall and hold one rifle or shotgun. They are similar to the locking rack that police cars have for a shotgun. The one I saw even had a push button combiniation lock, but I can't find it online anymore. Maybe you could just mount one of the vehicle locking racks on your wall or bed frame.

There is also this PieceKeeper wall lock for handguns...



The web site says "shotgun model coming soon", but ads on ebay say that it will hold shotguns if you buy an additional accessory kit.

You could try the Mossberg Loc-Box. It doesn't have a keypad entry, but I think should still be faster access than a safe. http://www.mossberg.com/scripts/prod...p?idproduct=97

That looks perfect, but I can't find any info saying it's CA DOJ approved.

I'm as interested in liability here as anything. If I'm reading the law correct I'd be less liable, in case of a stolen firearm, with a simple DOJ approved cable lock than I would be with an item like that which could actually prevent the theft. Am I just being paranoid?
