    Paco & Bride . .

    First off: Congratulations! It is a nice feeling having your wife carry with you. My wife & I have discussed tactics somewhat & I have always told her that if I have the time, I will move to the lateral somewhat . . Hopefully the BG's eyes will track me & give her time to do what is needed . . .

    On another note: For the life of me, I cannot get my wife to carry in a holster, she prefers to use a CCW purse. A word of advise to you both: If you wife decides to try a CCW purse, the best ones we have found are from Coronado Leather

    ( www (dot) coronadoleather (dot) com.
    On Edit: I did'nt know how else to kill the long winded blub from the web site . . .

    She has tried some other ones, but they have not held up as well. Not by a LONG shot! The oldest one she has is 5 yrs old & still looks like the day she bought it . . . after 4+ yrs of daily carry. Your mileage may vary, but we feel Coronado is the best on the market . . .

    Congrat to you & your wife!

    Ouch, that one hurt. I see a future problem here, I'll get her a real nice pistol and want to get one too, especially since the AR15 didn't work out for my birthday, $1,500 had to go to fix the friggin minivan

    So maybe I'll use this to get me a nicer pistol, hrm...

    This will open up a whole new realm for the both of you.
    I have lost count of how many "Dates" and Anniversary's we have spent at the range since my wife got her CCW.

    Congratulations to the both of you!
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    Congratulations !!!

    My wife has had her CCW for over 20 years.

    Prior to that her, favorite gun was a S&W Highway Patrolman .357 6"barrel, not really a carry gun !!!
    She used to shoot my Blackhawk .44 mag in metallic silhouette competition.

    But, even though I tried hard with Glocks, 1911's, Luger P-08, etc. she doesn't like semi-autos. When she sees my 17 rds mags, her line is: "Oh, you plan to miss a lot" ...
    So now she carries a S&W .357 Scandium 3"...

    When I met her 36 years ago, next Sunday, she had never touched a gun ... I taught her most of what she knows about guns and marksmanship.

    In that process, I learned a few things that I want to share with the OP.
    In the army, I was firearm instructor and range master. Well , the way you teach your men is NOT the way to teach your wife ... unless you want a divorce

    Seriously, I never told her how to do things (except basic safety); I always showed her different options explaining my personal choices, but always letting her make her own decisions.

    It is very tempting for a more experienced person to try to tell a novice what to do. IMNSHO it is not good; if you don't let the student make mistakes, the student will never become a master.

    And remember to always keep a good helping of FUN in the learning process.

    You will discover a new level of bond when you'll be both armed.

    Yoyu are a lucky man, enjoy !!!

    If that were to happen to me and McCain got in the White House, I'd feel like I won the lottery.
