I bet she won't like the Beretta 92. That is a huge gun. I have a 96, (same thing, but in .40), and it's almost too big for me. Having said that, it's also a very nice gun. I used to have the FS version, and now have the A1 version. I like the FS better.

Think seriously about getting something you both feel comfortable with owning/shooting/CC. I'm a big man, but decided to focus on 9mm and .380 for HD/CC for my wifes and my sake. Better to have 2 people willing and ABLE to protect your lives than just one!

Mmmmm, new Beretta. Sigh. The fitted cases they came in back in the '90's were so much better. One could expect more than that^^^ from a company like this.

Good first choice, anyway. Glad she likes it.

Congratulations to you both.

Now it's time to start saving for #2, there's nothing truer than two is always better than one, especially when you are both willing and ABLE! Congrats to you both!!

Yeah -- what gun's gonna be in the house when you go to the range to shoot that one? I think your next one, and you owe her, is an 84.
