    Wife finally gives in.

    I've pestered my wife for a little over a year now about getting her carry permit, and she's always thought it was unnecessary. I haven't broached the subject for the past 3 months or so and 4 days ago, she proclaimed, "I've come to a decision, and you're going to be surprised." She followed that up by telling me she's decided she wants to get her permit. We are going tonight to look at some weapons, and we're going to get her into a class in the next month.

    I'm glad she's changed her mind, and more importantly, I'm glad she came to a decision on her own.

    Hopefully my wife is next in line to do that.

    Nice to hear. I think it's worth emphasizing that you backed off, and gave her time/space to consider the issue for a while by herself.

    IMHO, You are correct. The "decision" to CC is "PERSONAL" & must be made by the person after "due consideration"

    That's great. I have given my wife all of my arguments and tried to apeal to her logic. Then I remembered that she was a woman and tried to apeal to her emotions.

    Still no luck, but she accepts my decision to carry and for now, I have to accept her decision not to, and hope she comes to it on her own like yours did.

    Have fun at the gun shop with her.
    Walk softly ...

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Does she have a sister? Great she could think it through and make the right decision...many can't.

    Congrats.
    Speak softly, and carry a big stick.

    Good for her!

    Just a note. If she purse carries she doesn't have to take the gun out of the purse to fire. It's hard on the purse but it's even harder on the bad guys when they realize they've been shot by a purse. Of course a hammerless revolver works best in this role.

    Congratulations. Took my wife shooting a few times, years ago, and she decided that she wanted her permit. Always best when they make up their own mind.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
