    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Hello, WIski, and welcome from Missouri to a really great forum. Good people and info here!

    Since you are new to this handgun, self defense arena, consider taking some good pistol self defense classes. I also recommend you check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor in handgun use and self defense, who has recorded training sessions in Judicious Use of Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparation for Home Defense, and What to Do After a Shooting. Just Google his name and these topics and the YouTubes should show up. Very good instructional information from an expert, and free.

    Here is a very good technical review of self defense ammo once you are ready to consider this:
    Best Choices for Self Defense Ammo

    Best wishes to you both!

    Hi! i was able to try this gun in the concealed carry class we took and really liked it, however, I didn't initially want a revolver. Hubby and I went to a local range that allows customers to rent guns for use on the range. We tried several different ones that I thought I would like; the LCP, the LC9, PPK, Bersa Thunder .380. The LCP and LC9 felt too small and uncomfortable for me. I'll note that I am average size and stature, small to average size hands. I liked the PPK and Thunder a lot but felt they were too large for me at this time.

    When testing the above I experienced a few mis-fires and a "stove-pipe" and was uncomfortable with the thought of that happening in a situation when I really need it. Sooooo, I started thinking about the LCR again. Very easy solve to the misfires (just pull the trigger again), easy to clean, and the gun itself is very light - even when loaded. It felt good in the hand (not too heavy but not too light) and I can barely tell its there when in my purse or coat pocket.

    I also watched several you tube reviews and comparisons of a few different guns to get more opinions.

    I guess to make a long story short; it's simple for a first-timer and it won't weigh me down so much that I won't want to carry it. I've had the chance to shoot it a few times now and am still very happy with my purchase. Highly recommended for newbies and women. My hubby even likes it so it must be good :)

    Good luck to you guys. I'd be interested to hear back what you decide on.
