    I'm About to Lose One of My Carry Guns...

    Well kind of...my girlfriend texted me earlier and asked if she can borrow one of my guns to have around. We have been talking for awhile about getting her a CHL and obviously her own CC piece. Obviously, I think this is great, right now she carries OC and will in the future be carrying a gun but for now I'm glad to have finally made enough progress with her comfort level to make her want a HD gun. Anyway, she has shot both of my M&Ps (full size .40 and compact 9mm) with no issues, the compact fits her better since she has small hands. I'm going to let her borrow indefinitely the 9mm compact and get her a TLR-3 to put on it. Also, I have a couple of the X Grips for the 17 round mags so it will be a totally prepared HD gun. She will buy her own CCW gun sometime in the near future, but for right now given the current craziness we are going to just settle with this.

    All in all, I have to suffer with just having a Glock 27gen4 for EDC. I think that is a fair trade for knowing that someone close to me is able to defend herself.

    By the way, if anyone knows of a good deal on a TLR-3 please let me know, I want to order one up ASAP.

    I personnally wouldnt lend out one of my firearms, thats just me. But awesome that your helping with the tools to defend herself, but be wary, if she gets the bug, she could end up with more guns than you:)

    If Universal Background Checks gets passed, you woudl have to pay to have a background check run on your GF before you could let her borrow one of your firearms. Stinks, huh?

    Congrats on the GF's decision to think seriously about SD/HD.

    just have a plan to reclaim your M&P. Women have a strange way of thinking that what's is yours is hers, or that everything you give them is a gift.

    Sounds like things are getting serious.

    My second-favorite HD gun is a Gen 3 Glock 19 with a TLR-4. But nothing replaces a shotty...

    Tangent: I was practicing hip-shooting the pistol grip shotty at the range recently and totally annihilated the cardboard target before switching to handgun practice. At one point I heard someone laughing behind me, then I saw the guy walk away, shaking his head. I thought he was laughing at my shooting, until I realized he probably thought I'd just shot that target 5,763 times with the handgun I was holding.

    I personally would not loan out any of my firearms either because of liability reasons. If someone uses a firearm in self-defense whether it is ruled that way or not I am willing to bet one million to one that the person loaning the firearm can be held liable along with the user and if you have any assets kiss them good-bye from legal fees or in civil litigation.

    Obviously you aren't familiar with Texas Castle Doctrine and prohibitions on civil liability.

    Aww, that's not fair! I'll let my hubby borrow one of my guns OCCASIONALLY, any longer and I'll kiss that goodbye. Lol, works the other way round too. I prefer my guns to his rifles and shotguns. He has no preference... He didn't buy the guns, doesn't mean he won't keep'em!

    Problem resolution: Move in together, get married, and put all the guns in one safe. Then none are missing, or far away. You can have the one you shoot best in your night stand, and what she shoots best in her night stand
