Alli can add is "unbelievable".
my wife carrying a gun....unfortunately not likely without the occurence of a "life changing event". although she does help me watch for the occassional "no guns" signs when we are out together.
interesting the thread started out with an H&R 32 revo though. that was my first carry piece. it lasted a few months til i upped to a 38 snub then to the 1911 micro.
madmike, if its not too forward how old are you and yer wife?
i am 40 and my wife is 36. (just for comparisons sake on gun attitudes among women of, maybe, similar ages.)
This is mine. That is yours.
Lets keep it that way.

My wife wants nothing to do with guns. Since I always carry, she just doesn't say anything about them. I do have my 11 and 13 year old daughters shooting the air pistol with me in the back yard. I plan to have them using a .22 in the near future.

Sounds great, except that she should have sprung for a 1911. JK, don't let her get away (don't make her mad either). :)

Good for both of you!
That G26 is a nice piece. A buddy of mine offered to let me shoot his a while back. I wasn't really interested, but didn't want to offend him. Well, I'm glad I accepted the offer. I LIKE that gun! I thought it would be unpleasant to shoot, but it is very controllable, especially considering how short the grip is.
I'm glad you and your wife are in this together. "An armed marriage is a polite marriage," or something like that!

I had a similar experience with my wife. She has up until about Jan of last year never held a gun much less shoot one. When I got my G21 I thought she should at least fire a few rounds just in case. I took her to a local range, and as we where departing she said "I what one." I was floored!!! So we spent the next month or so trying different guns till she settled on a HK USP compact 9mm.
The range has become a frequent family activity. As a friend of my says gun powder therapy.
After she got her gun, a basic pistol course was next up, so she would be safe as well as get her CCW.
I am very luckey.
If you don't protect your self, who will?

To your question, I'm turning 54 this month, she's. . . well, I guess it would be safe to say, on the down-hill side of 40.
Come to think of it, the way she shoots, maybe it wouldn't be so "safe to say."

Sounds like a great time Mike! Tell your wife "Congrats!" on her new Glock! Shooting is a great family event and it is just so much nicer when you can share it with them! Even better, the CCW idea is a no-brainer. Make sure she goes all the way and gets her permit. It's her right to carry and protect herself and I'm glad to hear that she has decided to look into it!

I had the same experience with my wife a few years ago! After the first trip to the range she realized the importance of her natural ability and started off with my Goverment Colt .380 because of the Cute factor but has sense come around after getting her CCW to a Lady S&W!!! I feel much better knowing she can shoot and will! So congrats and I hope you feel better knowing she's can rock with that baby Glock!!!
