Default Wanting to buy the hubby a handgun for Christmas...

My husband has a concealed weapons permit and he carries his handgun alot. He is a bigtime deer hunter and owns many rifles but his handguns are limited to only 2. He has a .357 S&W and a Bersa Thunder .380. He carries the .380 but he has always wished he would have bought something else. We were shooting it just the other day and it jammed a couple times....may have been the cheap ammo cause when we changed ammo it didn't jam anymore but what if it jams when you're using it for protection?! So I would like to buy him another one for Christmas....hope you gun owners can help me out! Thanks in advance!

If I were looking for a carry piece, I'd have to look very hard at the Kimber Solo in 9mm.

Give him a gift certificate from Buds Gun Shop, Cabela's, Bass Pro Shops or Local Gun Shops and let him find the gun he wants.

Concealed Carry guns are a very personal item. We can only suggest what WE like.

But should you still want our ideas, get him a Colt Light Weight Commander.

You might also consider a Kahr 9mm, or Ruger LC9.....

Wow! What a lucky guy. I thought I was one of the only guys with a wife that supporting and thoughtful. A definite hat tip in your direction Hunt2.

I have to agree with Cane, a CC piece is all about how it feels as well as how it conceals. I know Cane will always recommend a 1911, I'll always lean towards Sig classics......and so it goes.

The gift certificate is best, unless you just "happen to go browseing" and he falls for a particular handgun. Then just sneak back a buy it without him. I did that to my wife for her Wetherby Athena 20ga. She drooled over it several times and it just appeared under the Christmas Tree. She still calls it her best Christmas present ever.

Good luck, you rock!

Just be careful. Straw purchases are illegal.
If you buy a firearm, it is for you. Once you have the firearm, you can do what you want with it.
But don't go in and say you want to buy one for your spouse.

I'm no lawyer; I only play one one the internet, but that would *not* be a straw purchase. If she were buying for someone that could not legally own a gun, that would be a straw purchase. Or if he were giving her money to buy a gun on his behalf (even if he could legally own), that would be a straw purchase.

A gift from wife to husband, husband to wife, or parent to child Would not be a straw purchase.

*Local laws apply. YMMV.

Kimber Solo 9mm Subcompact Review
She wanted it for Christmas, not her husbands retirement

I have several Kimbers and they're fine guns but a little pricey. If my budget was limited, I would suggest looking into a Glock 26 pistol or Ruger SP 101 revolver, very dependable. Personally, my next handgun is going to be a Springfield Loaded, 1911, .45 in stainless steel. Can't afford it until I get the wife her fourth job
