How about we just find a way to knock all of the azzwipes off of the planet and he wouldn't have to worry about her. Wouldn't that be nice....not reality, but would be nice.

I really wish. I really really do. But then we wouldn't have these interesting conversations on the internet. There would only be porn left.

Yeah. Ive heard it can be tough out there. But I do know regular people that have gotten their CCWs in CA. A friend of mine lives in San Fran and has hers. Heck, Ive talked to a lot of folks in your neck of the woods that never even tried because they thought they simply wouldn't get it.
San Francisco is extremely difficult to get a permit in. Only a handful are issued there. If I recall correctly, Dianne Feinstein holds her CCW in Santa Clara County, where I live, although she lives in San Francisco, or this was true at one time within the past year. Santa Clara and Santa Cruz County are also very difficult to obtain a permits in, and I have tried. (I believe the last time I looked there were fewer than 5 issued in Santa Cruz County).

Sacramento County went from almost no-issue to shall-issue with the election of a new Sheriff in 2010, and it is still a cumbersome process. Most rural counties are shall-issue.

On the upside though many of the deputies who patrol out here in the rural parts of the county have nooooo problem with us hillbillies being armed. Many times they have said to me that they have no doubt that many of us will have things handled before they arrive if somebody breaks into our homes. One time when I was talking to the a half dozen deputies on the Marijuana Eradication Team (some illegal growers had tapped water off of one of my springs, so I turned them in because I was pissed at them for stealing my water- I could care less about the fact they were growing pot) and one of them commented that he liked knowing some of us hillbillies so that if he needed some extra firepower he knew where to go. I said as long as he was coming for the right reasons he would be welcome, but if he was coming for my guns he better bring his lunch and a whole lot of backup. They all laughed and said if they pulled that duty they would call in sick that day. It was all just shooting the bull but there was that undertone of jocular seriousness.

My mother in law is getting up in the years. She shot my JA-22 a few times. She is comfortable with the JA-22 and has no problems popping cans with it. She is warming up to the idea of shooting my Ruger Blackhawk with the 9mm cylinder in it. Once she shoots the 9mm and sees it doesn't bite I am sure she will go for the 357 after she sees her daughter handling the 357 with ease.

You are not going to get an 80+ year old woman to jump into anything until she is comfortable with it. It has taken 2 years to get my mother in law to consider the 9mm.

Funny you say that, this past summer my Dad and Mom brought my nieces over to have them shoot for the first time. naturally I was not going to let the opportunity pass without having both Dad and Mom shoot as well, but the only one they shot was the AR! They only fired a few dozen rounds, but that's better than nothing.

She wants to come over and have us train her on the S&W and doesn't have any problem with that, its the thought of using it as a HD weapon that she is having a hard time getting her mind around and I am glad that she is taking it this seriously, if she weren't then I would be worried about the idea.

Good news that there is a door open then! If she's having you train her with the S&W, then she's interested in being able to use it. That is one big hurdle for her to overcome.

Low/no pressure guidance and patience. That is your big hurdle. Hang in there. It will work out.

I see your point. But given my druthers Id rather talk about guns than search for porn.

Tell her to get a white cane, some dark glasses and a healthy German Shepard! A good doggy can be the best deterrent to crime and also keep you warm company a cold night.
