    Thanks!

    Thanks for making me feel welcome, everyone!

    Yes - I had already gotten my CCW but felt kinda funny about carrying. Then I read the first few pages of Quigley's book (and stayed up into the wee hours to finish it), and I haven't been out of the house without my sidearm since!! In fact, I immediately replaced my old .25 auto with a .38 S&W with laser grips and hollowpoints!

    One of my sisters was raped years ago, and in my younger years, I was accosted by a man with a knife who was scared away by a passer-by. So I know how fast things can go bad.

    Welcome LibertyGal!
    My wife is looking hard at the same gun you have. She is also really interested in the lazer grip. Right now all she has is a Walther P-22 but she wants a .357.
    I bought her a holster for the P-22 but she doesn't use it for the same reason you listed. I think we will look at your idea for her too.

    See? You are already providing valuable information.
    Thanks!
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

Being a little on the well-rounded side, a holster doesn't really work for me, and I feel that a purse carry is too dangerous - too easy to purse-snatch, lay down somewhere, or have a child get into it. So I use a waist pack, which on a woman doesn't usually get a second glance.
    Shooting once a week is a pretty good schedule, I think. Those indoor ranges are nice, eh? Congrats on pursuing training in a state that doesn't require it. I've heard from a few people here in the Pittsburgh area that there aren't enough trainers, and it must be a widespread problem as people come from Ohio and WV to train here.
