For the longest time I have kept my HD pistol in a drawer by my bed. This worked well enough. When I had kids a few years later, I added a kid lock that uses a magnet to unlock the drawer. (No it won't keep a criminal out, but it will keep a 5 year old out.) I finally added a custom cut foam pad that keeps the various items from sliding around. I bought the foam online and made a jig setup that uses electricity to heat a wire that cuts the foam.
