    My gf doesnt carry, she's not old enough. She doesnt shoot either, I've offered to take her shooting several times but she never wants to go. But she doesnt have a problem with guns or me carrying one or three.

    Wife carrying

    My wife has her CCW. Went through the class with me and applied the same day I did. However, most of the time she doesn't carry, since she's usually with me. I carry most of the time I'm out of the house. I'd like her to carry when I'm not with her, but she's had trouble finding a purse that's really big enough for practical use and still has provisions for ready access to a gun. Any suggestions?

    My wife carries. It was actually her idea about 10 months ago to get a handgun for HD and SD. We took our handgun education course together at SigArms Academy and both got our CCW. She now carries a Kahr MK9 in a pocket holster.

    Great woman!

    My wife carries. Did our CCW class together, etc. She is probably more adamant about carrying than I am (well, maybe more pro-gun vocal than I am, since we both carry all the time).

    My wife has her CCW, but hasn't started carrying yet. We gotta break in her carry gun (Firestorm .380).

    Joe, you may want to look into Coronado Leather. Here's the one my wife likes:http://www.coronadoleather.com/view.aspx?i=69&c=2&p=0

    I would rather she carry on her person, but we couldn't find a method that worked for her. I'd rather have her carry in on her purse than not at all.

    I finally talked my wife into taking the CCW qual course. Hope to do it all this summer after she's out of school (teacher).

    The thing that finally cinched the deal was that under our state law, it is legal for me (as a CCW permit holder) to store my loaded pistol in the locked glove box. If for some reason, she has to retrieve my vehicle with it stored that way, and she does NOT have a permit, she could be charged if stopped.

    Not very likely, but I figure that the class+permit fee is cheap insurance for what could be a very costly situation.

    I posted on the first page that my wife car carried (legal here in Missouri without a permit); that was a year ago. Today she has her CCW and rarely goes out without it. Currently she carries my Grendel .380 but is wanting a light weight .38 with Crimson Trace grips.

    Not too bad in 15 years went from liberal "guns bad" to "it's OK if you carry" to "I'm glad you carry" to "I want to carry".

    My wife doesn't, says if she did she'd shoot someone. My sister carries but won't get permit, because she doesn't want anyone to know she has a gun, figure that one out?

    My girlfriend is Ukrainian, living in Moldova. They don't have a Second Amendment like we do, so the short answer is no. She knows that I carry, and she's looking forward to learning to shoot once I bring her over here.
