Hello folks. I'm new here but have been reading the forum for several days now. I know this has probably been hashed over a million times but...
My CC class is not until mid october. I've been talking with my friend about what he suggests I carry. He works in a gun shop and says he sells alot of the S&W .38 airweights. That is also what he suggested I go with. I like the feel of the gun...it is light and small.
I'm a farm woman who just took a "town" job in ag sales. It will have me walking onto other folks property and they may tend to forget that I have permission. I'd like to have something other than my pocket knife in the event things get ugly.
I'm not a small woman. 5'10" and 160 lbs. I almost always wear wrangler jeans and t-shirts. I'm looking for something with stopping ability yet very concealable.
I'm an avid hunter but hand guns are foreign to me. I have not even shot the .38 I mentioned above. Shotguns, rifles and bows are second nature to me. Never shot a pistol.
My kids start school tomorrow and by friday I plan to have several rounds thru several different guns. But I was wondering what you all suggested I try out?
Is the sw .38 a good choice or not? What do some of the women here carry?
Thanks for your time.
