    Another Hello From Texas

    Hello, I live in Texas. My wife was one of the first women in Texas to get a CCL. She went through the course using an old government model Colt 1911. She typically carries a Springfield Armory Subcompact XD40 and shoots very well with it (shoots well with any gun actually). I too carry one of those when I have my day-planner with me. But when I don't have my day-planner I carry a S&W Airweight with .38 +P defensive load. I can fit the little revolver in my pants pocket comfortably and you can't tell that I am carrying. I found these forums while looking for information on a Mossberg 930 Tactical shotgun. I am in the process of ordering one. I have a 500 pump home defense gun, but after realizing that my wife may need to use it to defend our home, I decided to find a shotgun that is simple to use. I don't want her to have to be pumping another round in it. I want it simple--flip the safety, pull the trigger until the bad man stops. Hopefully the 930 will do the trick. I know that a pump is more reliable than a semi-auto but when confronted with a life or death situation, I figure that simpler is better.

    Welcome from KY! She's going to be fine with that Mossberg. It will certainly go bang when the time comes.

    Welcome
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
