I just about died today. Today my wife shot me with a text message saying "We need to talk about the guns". My only thought was "OMG, here it comes".
My wife has been supportive of me with my guns, but she has never felt fully comfortable with them. With the political climate the way it is, and all the discussion going on in the media, I really thought she was saying "Enough, time to get rid of them." Instead......
Instead, when we talked, she said "I think I need to get my concealed carry permit" I was wondering if I need to clean the wax out of my ears... I asked her to repeat that, and she did, I had heard her correctly.
I can't believe it. I had suggested it many times over the years, but decided I wasn't going to raise the issue again after years of turning the idea down. When my wife says something like this, it generally means she very serious and is ready to do it. She doesn't say stuff like this unless she means it. Needless to say, I got out of work early, met up with her and visited some stores where we can get information on the a class she can take. We even had a sales person pull out a few different makes/models see what fits her hands.
So now I need some advice... after she gets her license, do I lock my guns away so they stay mine and let her get her own? Or do I let her have one of mine, so I can get a new one?
