I can't even get my wife to carry her OC the way she should. She likes for me to carry and knows I will protect her when we are together. When I ask her what she is going to do when I'm not there, she just shrugs. I can't convince her otherwise.
Unfortunately, my wife won't have anything to do with guns-she won't even go to the range and watch me shoot. It was difficult enough getting her to carry pepper spray, let alone suggesting she consider obtaining her CCW and actually carry.
Ummm..none, because I don't play for that team. :joker:
My boyfriend, on the other hand, doesn't currently carry, but is very interested in getting his permit. His job does not allow him to carry, but his job is being an adult case worker for the mentally ill (schizophrenics, bipolars, manic depressives) and sometimes those housecalls are in unsavory neighborhoods. At least two of his clients have tried to commit suicide in the past two weeks, and some clients might be prone to violence if they go off their meds.
My sweetie is a big guy and can take care of himself, but there's always someone bigger and scarier... or better armed.
My wife will not hesitate to carry her Taurus 84 .22lr with her around the farm. But she will not get a CCW, says that it is my thing not hers. She did seem open to car carry when I brought it up. I'll have to keep working on that one.
