Good for her.
This is a discussion on My fiance said she wants her permit! within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I joined the Army and left for training in October. My fiance was used to having me around always with my gun on my person ...
I joined the Army and left for training in October. My fiance was used to having me around always with my gun on my person or on my nightstand when we were sleeping. Since I have been gone for 2 months she said she has taken a big interest in being able to defend herself because I am not always going to be here to protect her. She wants a Glock 26 to carry, she wants to start looking at holsters and she wants to take her ccw class asap! I was completely shocked when she said she wanted to start carrying! She has always gone shooting with me and hunting with her dad so she has never disliked guns. But she would always tell me that she wasn't completely comfortable with carrying because she didn't know if she could pull the trigger if she had too....but apparently those feelings are passed that and I am going to get her signed up for the class asap!
Good for her.

That's great for her, and peace of mind for you that she can defend herself whilel you are away. Smart lady you have there.
Thank you so much for your service.
Speak softly, and carry a big stick.
Thank you for your service!
That is great that she wants to share the concealed carry lifestyle with you. My wife is close to getting her CPL and a new carry gun. It definitely helps with spending quality time together when you share a common interest and lifestyle choice. We are looking at courses now that cover home defense for couples. Team skills and drills covering making a plan together, storage/access issues, clearing the house. I can't wait to get going on it, sounds like a lot of fun.
That is so right her wanting training and the permit! Thank you much for your service..Merry Christmas! And best to you both..

That sounds very good!

Another cool thing they do is league nights during the week were you get forward of the firing line and incorporate obstacles, multiple targets and low/no light conditions. I will be getting in on that as soon as there is an opening in January. Much more practical than paper punching and you get to meet some really cool, like-minded people.
Nothing like a GF or wife (you may only have one) with a permit...now if I could just get my wife to carry.

As soon as I sell my truck I am buying her a G26 and myself a G23!
A double thumbs up for your girlfriend getting her permit and for her choice of guns!
And a big thumbs up for your choice in women!
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
If she's cute, I'll be happy to go protect her for you!
A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.
