    Now THIS Was A Surprise!

    I was talking to my wife last night about my Ruger LCP being listed as being packed and ready for shipment, and told her that I had to go to the Sheriff's office and get a pistol amendment form for my permit, and get her permit application. Also, I was telling her that I was planning on going to the NRA "Personal Protection Inside the Home" class. She said: "Could I go with you?"

    Well, knock me over with a feather!

    I said: "Sure." And she said: "But I don't have my pistol permit". I said: "You can use the Mossberg 12ga with the pistol grip. I'm going to have to buy the tac-light mount for it.

    Pretty neat that my wife is interested in defensive weapons training.

    Thats great, it a whole lot more fun to attend training with a partner, and partener tactics are fun to learn too.

    Just one question though... why does she need a pistol permit for home use?

    EDIT; Oh, nevermind... I just answered my own question, your location.

    12ga with a pistolgrip? Do you like her..JK
    I don't enjoy those at all!
    Unless it's the full stock, the stock on my M1 works great when you tuck it under your arm.

    She doesn't need a permit for the tac shotgun. And it's a much better weapon for close quarters home use.

    Someone ought to make a gizmo that mimics the sound of a 12ga being racked. That is the scariest sound a burglar can hear. The second scariest is the deep throated snarling of a rottweiler. :)

    @cl00bie:

    Awesome! Many of us wish we had that kind of luck in getting our significant others to take an interest in personal safety.
    Make sure to get some reduced-recoil loads for her to use - I have a pistol grip 12 gauge and I know how your wrists feel after a box or two.

    Off topic, but I helped a friend of mine rig up an awesome doorbell system for his apartment... We used the guts from a little digital voice recorder, wired it up to his stereo, with the doorbell button acting as a relay.
    When someone rings the doorbell, they hear a normal "Ding-Dong", then about half a second later, the sound of his 870 being racked and a German Sheppherd barking.
    Only downside is, he has to leave his stereo on all the time for it to work

    I've never been there to see it in person, but he says delivery people are frequently very pale and nervous by the time he answers the door.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    My wife is eager to go but I am having a hard time finding a good class around here. We may end up having to travel.

    That's awesome , it's a great feeling when the woman you love tells you she wants to be better able to defend herself , isn't it? My wife surprised the heck out of me one day when she told me she wanted to start carrying on her person instead of in her purse. Congrats on the surprise, sounds like it was a great one.

    I am glad your wife is interested in the training. Are you sure the instructor is going to let her take the class with a shotgun?
