Got a call today from a nice lady who wanted to give her 26 yr old son a pass to my May 21 carry class, also his birthday. I told her he had already signed up (coincidence) and she could take care of the fee. I mentioned that there was another fee for the permit, and she said she would do that for him too. Wow.
After a few more words I learned she had had some enjoyable experiences with shooting, but after the onset of MS, she mostly stayed home alone in her wheelchair. Her right (strong) hand is still OK, though a little weak. The off hand isn't steady. She may be able to thumb back the hammer of a light 38 Spl and shoot it single action, but I'm not crazy about the idea. A DAO would be out. A DA/SA auto would be even harder to thumb back for SA mode. She seemed truly gratefull that I might look into some options for her self-defense.
Any thoughts about the gun? Where do you think a holster should be mounted and hidden? What kind of holster? How would you attach it? I know, Bruce, 1911. Hey, you guys and gals are the best. What do you do when you can't run or hide?
