I'm new to DC and I recently got my ccw in Fl; originally from IL. My wife now wants her ccw. Problem is, my carry is a Charter Arms .38 undercover I bought in '63 while in the Corps. I still have 158 gr 38 spl Remington loads which I'm reluctant to use. She likes the feel of the CA but I'm not comfortable sending to the safety/training class with them. I believe I should upgrade my CA to a Ruger LCR, Kahr CW9 (for me) or S&W 642. My questions are; are the loads from '63 safe or should I lose them; and since she "doesn't like guns that eject" would the LCR or the 642 be better for her. She got that phobia from her first husband 30 years ago.
