    We both carry and are very comfortable and confident with each ones abilities.

    My wife doesn't like guns and doesn't believe people should own guns, but likes that I carry.

    Can't vote in this one. The wife and I took the ccw course together at my request. I left the actual decision to carry up to her. She was alittle uncomfortable at first and didn't carry, inpart do to the fact the she cannot carry at work. Now when we go out at night or on the weekend she almost always has her gun with her. In fact, the other night we took the dog for a walk, she was in a hurry so did not go back in the house to grab my pistol. While we were walking she put her arm around me and noticed I did not have my gun. When I told her why she said that was okay, she had hers and she would protect me. Got to love her.

    Wives and Guns

    My wife is now indifferent to me carrying unless we are going into a bad part of town. She seems to think that I don't need it 24/7 but tolerates it. Only time I get a weird look is when going to a family or social function. I don't drink so the alcohol problem is not a problem. Guess she figures among friends know arms needed. But you never know when or where the KaKa will hit the fan.

    I probably should know the answer to this question, but I don't. I carry all the time and my wife knows it. She has a permit, but doesn't carry unless she is out in the middle of nowhere.

    If she feels comforted by it, all the better, and I should find out, but she at least has accepted the fact that I carry.

    My wife is indifferent because she knows I always carry, even at home. I never made it a big deal, and I think she appreciated it more. She knows that if I have clothes on, I have a carry gun on me, somewhere....

    You need to add another choice.

    I voted "indifferent" but I was leaning toward "doesn't like it." She's never really said so, has asked a few times if I had my gun, but I think she'd rather I didn't.

    My wife has my back and I have hers. In an attack, there will be two guns aimed at the BG. If I'm not there, she's 100% capable. She also tells me she thinks it's comfortingly sexy for me to be willing to go in harm's way to protect her.

    Heck, my wife has been carrying longer than I have.


    The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.

    when i lived in utah my wife was indifferent but didnt understand why i chose to carry a firearm. now that we have moved to illinois carrying isnt an option at this point so the issue doesnt come up much.

    My wife is a Marine and a police officer. She doesn't care if I carry because she has her own gun. And she carries a .45ACP
