the ruger LCP is hella nice i completely forgot about it (brain fart). and for some reason i never even saw this post until just now? **** i can see targets fine through a 3 point sight but cant read huge posts on the net, seem to have my priorities straight haha

It doesn't sound like your wife is very interested in the whole thing as it is so why try forcing it by buying her a gun ?

Even $100 is a good start to the price of good family pet that would actually provide her with some real protection like a German Sheppard puppy .

Just last night on my local news a women was attacked at her front door by a man and pushed inside the home with the intention of raping her and her Germen Shep came to the rescue , the Police we telling people to look out for a man who had bites around the Neck , Shoulders and Face .

Sounds to me like old horney toad was about to get his throat ripped out by fido and decided to run for his life .

I believe that Jennings is making them now. Jennings isn't really known for their stellar firearms either though.

I believe this is correct, but like you said... they aren't worth pizz on a rock.

First of all, your wife needs to decide what is going to be best for her.
The first question she needs to answer honestly is, can she kill someone without hesitation if so threatened. My mom said she wanted a gun in the house and when I asked her if she could point it at an intruder and pull the trigger and kill without hesitation, she told me "no".
I explained to her a gun is a tool used to protect yourself, just like a wrench is used to fix the car. You don't threaten or warn a bad alternator, you use the wrench and replace the alternator.
Hesitating or being unsure can allow an intruder to disarm and kill you.

If your wife decides that having a gun is ok for her, then she needs to do the shopping.
Take her to a shooting range that rents pistols. Let her handle and pick out the one(s) to try. Don't be judgemental or critical. Let her know both the pros and cons of each pistol so she can make the best decision.

My opinion as to what caliber to get is nothing smaller than a .38 or 9mm
If the intruder is under the influence of drugs, a .22 may not do the job with one shot.

A revolver or semi-auto:
Revolvers tend not to have hair triggers unless cocked. If you have a bad round, you just pull the trigger again. I never had a revolver jam.

Double action semi-auto pistols have the advantage of not having to be cocked to fire the first round.

Semi-autos have an advantage of having a light trigger pull possibly enabling an accurate first shot. If not held right when fired, a semi-auto can jam.

I have a S&W Model 19. I can load it with 38 special or 357 magnum shells. One of features I like about it is I don't have to worry about the spring in the magazine. I can leave it loaded for months at a time and it will always be ready to shoot.
I have tried many semi-autos. The one I liked the best was a Browning Hi-Power 9mm. Fairly compact, accurate, easy to cock, and get a consistant grip.

Have your wife take a couple of shooting lessons. Afterall, she probably took driving lessons to learn how to operate a car safely. A good instructor will be able to tell her how to handle and point a pistol (my mom told me you don't aim a pistol, you point it at what you want to shoot, she's right).

As far as defense goes, I believe a dog is best and the pistol is backup. Unfortunately owning a dog or having it with you all the time is not always practical.
