    Cool New Member - Charlotte, NC

    I monitored the site for about a month before joining last week. I guess it is time that i introduce myself.
    I'm a Damn Yankee who has been living in Charlotte, NC for the past 11 years after escaping the nanny state of New York. I took about shooting about 7 months ago at the ripe age of 54. I belong to a range and have my CCW but I have yet to purchase a fire arm. The wife is uncomfortable with guns in the house and I am uncomfortable not having a gun in the house. I'm running out of patience and could use a little advice from some who may have dealt with this issue. Divorce isn't a valid option at the moment.

    Welcome aboard from Orygun! Lots of patience; take her shooting and start with a .22 semi-auto.

    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    Welcome from Tennessee.......the "Patron State of Shootin' Stuff!"

    A gentleman could always explain things this way. Place a butcher knife on the kitchen counter....then tell her if it jumps of the counter and attacks any by itself you will get rid of the guns. If that does not work simply tell her you are uncomfortable with having her jewlery in the house.....as it prompts thieves to practice their craft. Then see who gives in first....

    Hi NickyP! Welcome to the forum from Texas. This is a great place to learn and to share! I carry a 3rd Gen Glock 30 SF. Congratulations on getting a CCW and deciding to protect yourself and your loved ones. You might ask your wife if she's ok with you also buying a small safe and keeping the gun in it when you're not carrying it. Also, invite her to the range and let her shoot a .22 so she can see how much fun it is to target practice.

    You might also try re-posting your dilemma in the Concealed Carry Issues forum http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/...s-discussions/.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! I really can't help you out with your problem as I've never experienced it. There seems that there's no rational argument we can make against antis. Good luck!
