Last Saturday took the wife to a sporting goods shop in nearby Kentucky. She recently got her carry permit and I had promised to purchase her a personal firearm for carry.
After looking at the .357 revolvers and such, she noticed Ms. Elsie Pea and loved the feel of it in her small hand. The man who worked there said he carries one, it's his "summer" concealed weapon. She liked the size and how easily she could work the slide action.
I asked her if she would like the smaller .380 caliber, she has fired a Keltec P3AT that someone else owns. She can shoot 9mm .38spl and .40 but felt the Ruger had more to offer, so I bought it for her.
Going to go pick it up Thursday, we live in WV and they must ship it to a FFL dealer so I can get it. Needless to say, she's excited. This is her very first pistol. Can't wait to get her out to the range either, she shoots better than I do, and I want her comfortable with her new toy as soon as possible.
