    Hi, newbie from seattle

    Hey everyone, newbie here from seattle.

    not so new to guns, used to shoot rifles with a buddy from school in the 80's. New to owning a hand gun though.

    Wife and i have decided to get a few pistols for home/self defense. There was a home invasion on the next block behind us a few weeks ago, and we have a few classic cars and other stuff that we own.

    Applied for my cc permit the other day, wife is going next week.

    I have decided to get a S&W SD40, and the wife a Walther 380. I may get a 1911 later for a alternate target gun, wife wants a .44 Yikes.

    Anyone that has any good info for us would be apreciated.

    Welcome. If the wife says she wants a .44, make sure she tries one out first to be sure she can handle it. If so, then great! I would love it if my wife was wanting me to buy more guns.
