    Always let the gun fall. Virtually all firearms have some type of firing pin block that keeps them from going off when dropped.

    That story reminds me of a friend of mine who bobbled his Ruger single action during a speed draw during a cowboy shoot several years ago. I wasn't there during the shoot. He caught it, alright but unfortunately the gun was cocked and a finger landed on the trigger, sending one of his cast semi wadcutter right into his abdomen. He bled out in a matter of seconds. He shoulda let it land on the ground. It might have gone off but the chances of him dying would have been greatly decreased.

    This! The faliaphotography video on holster options is the best I've seen. My wife, daughter, sister, and niece all learned a lot from it.

    I have both a belly holster and a couple ccw purses. Depending on how one dresses there are many ways to carry.

    Yeah but does she like guns?

    Mexican is an even cheaper alternative to cheap nylon clip holster iwb, and achieves the same effect.

    Fitch beat me to it. Falia has an extensive collection of youtube reviews in women's CCW methods and products. And, well, she's real pleasant to watch.

    Not really, she owns an XD. ;)

    Thank you for all the comments. My wife is also an NRA instructor, but a few months ago she broke her elbow and her shooting has suffered a bit because of it. Shes only been able to carry the Glock again for a month maybe, before that she was using a Tomcat with CT grips while she healed. I posted about that deal here somewhere. The Ka Bar was just bought because she could fight pretty hard with it even if her elbow was giving her problems. I was going to post a review on that when I get time, but the short version is that it is great for use with reduced hand/arm strength and dexterity.

    I have heard very good things about Flashbang holsters. Definitely worth checking into.

    If she were related to me she would have thrown her Glock across the restaurant.

    Just Kidding. I have never thrown my Glock across a restaurant... just across a firing range.. at a target. In my defense, it was empty so it wasn't doing me any good anymore.

    Moving on.

    Anyway, yes, much better to let it drop than try to catch it. Just remind her to move her feet out of the way, too. A falling Glock on bare feet is a BAD combination.

    And I like her choice of knives.

    Seems like it might depend on the build, buddy of mine wife has one that concels wonderful, bought one for my favorite and the same gun LCP w/ CT kept flipping up and showing very awkward. Try but get it from a source you can return it to.

    Depending upon what she was wearing , but a lot of women also like the conceal carry shirts...... that can be worn underneath.

    I've known 2 people who tried to "catch" a falling gun that both ended up dead. I hate the comment "they accidentally went off" , as in their cases....... in trying to grab it as it fell ..... they also unintentionally hit the trigger and ended up dead. I have dropped a gun, and the inclination is to "grab it" , and I resisted that urge..... and let it hit the ground. Funny thing, they don't shoot when they are dropped as long as you don't try to grab them and hit the trigger.

    Sounds like your wife did the right thing and good job of it.

    I don't know if this counts or not, one time we were shooting bowling pins and she kept missing the last one (to this day she says I loaded her gun with Stealth Bullets). When The slide locked back there was one pin standing. She dropped the empty mag, closed the slide, and reholstered. Then she walked up to the pin, opened her Cold Steel and stabbed it. She closed the knife and walked back to the car to reload her magazines.
