    Congratulations to your wife...glad to have another woman join the club! I got my license a few months ago and am on my second gun already. I started with a Bersa Thunder 238 which I loved to shoot (very accurate and easy to use) but when I tried to conceal it I had difficulty especially in summer clothing. I have a Sig P238 now and love it. I wish it was a P938, but those are still too difficult to find around here, and I got a deal I couldn't pass up on mine. Now that winter sweater weather is here I am looking at the possible addition of a M&P Shield...

    Yes, you will be short a lot more $ now, but she will no longer be as easy a target. I know my husband is happy to hear about my new infatuation...much easier to esplain to him the $ I spent on guns/holsters/ammo than on more shoes
    "The LORD is my light and my salvation--whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life--of whom shall I be afraid? " Psalm 27:1

    Keeping my eternal hope in the LORD while still using the mind He gave me and the tools at my disposal to act with wise judgment...

    That's a good woman you got there. Congrats! Her refusing to be a victim is comforting to you I'm sure. But other than that, it's just plain fun.

    I got my concealed carry permit and then I filled out the app for my wife's permit. I think she thought that it was going to be more complicated than it was...but what she was really doing is understanding the responsibility of conceal carry. The responsibility makes most people nervous before they carry. She has a carry purse and she is the one that does all the carrying in public. I need a better holster for my 38 or a better belt.

    Congrats this has to give you a bit of peace that she is better protected when you aren't around. When you are around now you both are protected.

    My husband went through the sheriff's academy many years ago before cars were invented lol. Ok not really, it was only about 35 years ago lol. We laugh when I say, oh while you were doing that I was still to young for my first date. We always had guns in the house but I wasn't real thrilled about this. I always knew he could protect us but still wasn't happy about them in the house. A few years ago he had a stroke. Since then he has talked about how I need to be able to take care of us too. He might not be able to. Finally this year I got my ccl and started to carry. The man was so proud I swear he told everyone lol. He hasn't shot since his stroke. He is going with me tonight to shoot for the first time in years. He said heck I might need your advice. That did make me smile.

    Thanks everyone for your really kind comments. She is so excited about shooting! She has gone shooting 3 times this week, twice with me, and today she said that she wanted to go the range today but couldn't because she was watching our daughter! ... Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page. She took her CWP class and passed. She said there were some really dangerous shooters at the range, and the lady next to her had TWO negligent discharges. The range instructor said he would ask her to leave it if happened again. My wife was hoping that the woman would have been asked to leave the 2ND time it happened! She said she was really scared about this woman. Apparently, no matter how much prompting she wouldn't keep her finger OFF THE TRIGGER! Anyway, here's my wife..so proud of her!!

    She was right to be scared. ND's are really scary. Repeated ND's are a good reason to leave the range RFN! What was the matter with that instructor. That woman should fail the class.

    I agree, and what was even more frustrating for my wife was that the instructor, trying to help this lady learn to aim, shot about 5 rounds dead-center...and of course those shots were added to her score ... Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.. I think my wife said the lady passed with a 147 or something like that...that's with about 50 points for the instructors shooting. The lady needs a basic handgun course, THEN take the CCW course.
