    Turned the Wife to the dark side

    Well, we have done it. Last night the Wife and I spent a romantic evening on the TX CHL site doing her application.

    Now all we have to do is go try out some handguns to see what she likes and will carry, then off to sign her up for a class.

    For some reason it was just exciting to watch her fill out the app, as boring as that can be. She actually seemed to enjoy it, she even made a joke wen she noticed she but down blue eyes, red hair, and white (ethnicity) and jokingly said she's Red, White, and Blue!

    Now I'll have to see if I can get her on here to start getting tips and tricks and what not, other than what I have already been feeding her from this site.

    Congrats! Another one for the cause. My wife just got her CHL in the mail Monday. Austin must be crackin the whip to get them out quicker as she mailed in her app back on August 21. That's just 37 days!

    May the force be with you both!

    Not bad, not bad at all. I'll suggest that to her.

    Good for you and her both. You think she had fun with the application, wait until she sees all the guns she gets to choose from. You think shopping for shoes is bad! lol

    No clue. She has never handled a pistol. My Sigma .40 scares her, she thinks it'll knock her on her butt. I told her it isn't that bad and the muzzle flip is manageable. I am thinking she'll opt for a compact because of her hand size and her options for concealment.

    I'll be sure to show her as many options as possible, she may surprise herself . I have sent her to Lima's Range Diary to check it out, so she can see you can still look like a lady with a full size gun.

    What will be fun to figure out is her carry options more so than what she carries. Homeschooling Mom with 4 kids, hrm...

    I am going to steer her away from purse carry, the pistol would get lost in there, I think she has one of my rifles in there but I can't prove it.

    SOB may be the best option, with a can't so she can reach it. Obviously I'll need to get her many options to fit her various outfits (not all have belts, etc.). I may have to get her a belly band, since she wears a lot of "Soccer Mom" sweat suits.

    Do "they" make a bra with a holster in the middle? If not, I think I know how I'll make my first million $ .

    Good for both of you. Now you have another reason to buy more fun things for the range, protection, etc.

    The purses made specifically for carry have a separate zipper on the side with a pouch just for the gun.

    Get her one like the fembots wear:

    Speak softly, and carry a big stick.

    My wife just gave birth to our daughter 3 weeks ago and she will be taking the class soon. It is definitely going to be a relief having some back-up and extra eyes.
    Congrats, Paco. It reinforces the relationship when you have more things in common.

    My wife, also a mother or 4 home schooled children, IWB appendix carries a Kel-Tec PF9. When cooler, she will sometimes carry her XD9 in a Blackhawk Serpa under a wind shirt or coat. She finds the PF9 much easier to conceal and prefers its light weight compared to the XD.

    I strongly recommend against any off body carry (purse, etc). It's too easy to get separated from the gun and very slow on the draw.
