    Thumbs up Good Luck!

    Sounds like you're doing great!

    My girl really LOVES her Kel-Tec 380!!

    She just got her ccw permit in WV in July and NH in September (thanks to a little work on my end). She is a GREAT shot and tells me now, "I can't imagine NOT carrying!"

    She also enjoys shooting my Glock .40, but prefers the Kel-Tec (a little pride of ownership ).

    So, take your time, work with her slowly and patiently then enjoy the fruits of your labor!

    Carry safe,

    Clearly within the month, you should buy her a nice present of a compact 1911 .45 carry pistol for her very own. If she's worthy she'll love it. If she's not, you can keep the pistol yourself. Now that's a win win situation! LOL.

    Best of luck.

    Congrats, you found a sane one! I knew I had a keeper when I told my gf my roomate and I had just gotten our CHL's, and she asked me when I was buying the gun. She had never even shot a gun before (I've since remedied that), but had no problems with me carrying one, as long as I did it safely. We've since had "the gun talk" and she's flat out told me she feels safer when I'm wearing it. Next step is to get her one.

    I think you handled the situation very well. You weren't carrying at the time, so she has evidence that you're not married to your gun. And you didn't lean out the window to shoot a raccoon. "It's fer dinner!" good job. Keep the girl, carry the gun. Everybody wins.

    thanks everyone!
    last night, after she made me fresh enchiladas (yummy!) and we watched a little TV, we talked about guns a little more ( I was unarmed again, gun was in the truck) (plus, she likes to cuddle with me! :) ) anyway, she's really looking forward to shooting, she's busy this weekend, but I'm thinking Monday night.

    And as far as buying HER a 1911 before I get one... well, we'll just have to see about that! But if it gets serious, and she wants to carry, and she wants to carry a $2,000 dollar custom stainless match grade target pistol, then that's just what she'll get! I wouldn't say "here honey, the Jennings will fit in your purse better!"

    I guess I'll just have to see what happens! Thanks again everyone, and if I get her to carry, well, I'll defintiely get a pic on here! Crexrun

    Interesting topic. I've been EDCing for two months (just got my CPL) and haven't told my wife of 9 years yet. I look at it as tactical training on concealment, as if she found out she'd pitch a fit.

    I guess I'm just waiting until I can say "I've been carrying around you for 6 months and nothing bad happened...heck, you didn't even know!"

    "heck, you didn't even know!"

    HA! I dont' know much about women, but.... In my 28 years, I HAVE learned... Women aren't really into NOT knowing! lol! I'm thinking that this may have adverse effects on your home life for a few days after the news! Good luck diffusing THAT situation, although, in your defense, it has been said it's easier to beg forgiveness than to seek permission, I know of quite a few women who would prefer to be kept in the loop on such matters. :D

    I hope it turns out well for you. And trust me, I know, some of the ladies are less than supportive when it comes to our ideas, so actually, maybe you're going the right way! I'm a car guy, so... when it comes to buying a new air cleaner for the hot rod versus groceries, sometimes what's a simple decision for ME turns out with less that glorious results! Anyway, have a good day, Good luck! Crexrun

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not counseling witholding information, just explaining my poor logic!!!

    Maybe this thread should be moved to the Tactical Scenario thread!

    Ya' done good.

    Just a note to others that may be in the same situation now or that someday might be; being a military member does not equal pro-carry or even pro-gun. I've been in the military, and weapons are strictly forbidden on base under normal conditions except for MP's. (Ironic huh?) I even had a hammer confiscated from my tool box once. So it is not something that many are accustomed to.

    While I was in active duty I got into a gun discussion with one of the guys I worked with. (He was military also.) I told him that I owned a few guns and he absolutely freaked! I'm glad we weren't up on the wing or something of the C-130E (we were in the flight deck) because I think he would have jumped and hurt himself. I think he wanted to get out of the vicinity real bad.

    The way I tell a girl I carry is this:
    "I carry a gun 24/7. Don't like it? There's the door!"

    That's not to say that she'll be around the next day though.

    I find the restrictions on carrying on a base are sort of strange--I am going to a rifle match at a huge Marine base here in California this weekend (just to watch and learn!), and I cannot carry while on the base, hundreds of people shooting guns, but you cannot carry while on base, strange.
