Shooter girl has it right. I used to say there are two thing a married man should not try to do. Teach his wife to drive a car or to play golf. I have since added handling a firearm. She has her CCW but hardly carried because she was not comfortable with her ability. We found a good instructor, she completed the course and had a new found interest. The next thing I did was go with her to our local shop and stayed out of the way while SHE
picked a weapon she was comfortable with. Turned out to be a Beretta .380. She carried and practiced faithfully with it until recently purchasing a new Ruger LCR. Depenting on her dress, she switches. BUT the point is that she now carries. She is comfortable and confident doing so. My opinion is that the single biggest mistake I see in many post is the phrase" I bought my wife a
" She needs to pick her own weapon. If for no other reason other than, she picked it out and you didn't. If you have been married over a year you know what I am saying.
