  • What do you do with all those trigger locks?

    Over the years, I have amassed many of those trigger locks that are in the box when buying a new gun. I keep my guns in safes so I don't use the trigger locks as intended. I have a shelf with a large number of these locks. Yesterday, I thought of other uses. Locking a tree stand cable, lock on my trailer hitch, lock my truck box, were some my ideas for uses. I don't think I will need to buy a lock for anything in the future. What ideas do you have?

    None!
    I despise the things and I have a butt load of them myself.
    When I attended gun shows, I'd put them out on the table in a basket: "Your choice! $5".
    Sold a bunch.
    Still have a bunch.
    Picked up a handgun at a pawnshop. The owner wanted me to purchase a lock and wouldn't allow me to leave unless the gun was "locked"!
    I grabbed a standard "Master" pad lock out of my truck, opened the cylinder and snapped the lock shut around the top strap. You can't close the cylinder. Mission accomplished!
    On a S&W revolver, you can also put a standard Master lock on the trigger guard "behind" the trigger.
    The gun can't be cocked or fired double action.

      I don't have any trigger locks. I keep my firearms inside my Browning safe.

        I suspect that if you go up to my attic where all the original boxes are, there's a trigger lock in each one of them.

          I once tried to use a trigger lock on a double barreled shotgun with two triggers. When the trigger lock was pulled back, the shotgun fired (or would have if it were loaded).

            I don't have a single one.
            I guess my purchases of brand new guns must have ended before trigger locks became mandatory.
