    Thoughts in training significant others on your weapons...

    I am wondering what you people here on DC think about training longer term significant others on you weapon systems.

    We are working out of moving out of my roommates house and into our own apartment or house, preferably the latter.

    She is not old enough to obtain a CCW and may have some things in her past that eventually prevent her from obtaining one (but we will wait and see they were before she was 18).

    However I see the benefit to having her trained on the weapon systems I own.

    What are anyones thoughts on this subject. She's very intrigued by the SR1911 which might make me buy a house 1911 because I don't go anywhere without mine.

    I'm debating taking her to the range and stepping her up to becoming familiar with other firearms. Starting with a small caliber, but god she has small hands and is a small framed woman, I can't imagine her loving the weight on the 1911 but maybe we will see.

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    When my wife and I moved in together I made sure she could work the actions and was familiar with my weapons, since she had access to them at that point. Didn't want any accidents.

    I know a woman that's 4'8" and under 100 lbs that carries a 45 and is very good with it - don't assume anything about her abilities. Depending on her past, you may want to talk to a lawyer about possession, not just CCW.

    Take with a lawyer. A gun even in the house if someone with felony could be a n issue. Everyone should know about gun operation except kids IMO

    My wife can operate all our firearms she doesn't like all of them but she can use them. Her firearm of choice is the LCR with ct grips she handles it well.

    Exactly! If a person has access to your firearms they should now how to safely handle them. Being trained in their defensive use would be good as well, but they should at least know how to clear it and make sure it's safe.

    Can't agree with this at all. Teaching the kids takes the mystery away, and thus the curiosity. I would much rather the kids know how to safely operate a firearm, than have no idea what they are doing - that's how accidents happen. Don't childproof the guns (you couldn't if you tried), gunproof the kids.
