Get him a gift certificate at a sporting goods store.

This way, he selects which he wants and you get a background check on him.

Why not get it for your daughter?

Break into my daughter's home and you'd come face-to-face with my son-in-law...standing right behind my daughter and her Ruger SP101 in 357 Magnum pointed your way. It's always good to have backup (?son-in-law?), but never count on backup in place of being prepared.

There are two good answers:

1) A shotgun, 12ga or 20ga. Probably the first firearm any pro-gun household ought to incorporate.

2) A pistol. No reason to narrow it down too much. Many calibers can work, but 9mm or 357mag are the probably the most sensible launching points.

Smith 637. Prices are just under $375. One for each.

Sean,

Be sure they are both trained and proficient with the weapon not just one!
From experience ladies learn very quickly since they listen and have no bad habits! I would think a Glock Model 23 in 9mm would be an excellent choice for them to learn with. Reasonably priced, low recoil and ammunition is readily available for the 9mm and some at a reasonable price if there is such a thing as reasonable price these days. The 23 is a middle sized pistol which should fit both of them very well and fair for concealed carry. And accurate enough to build the confidence in a new shooter when target shooting which is important. Only my thoughts! Good luck on your selection. And I must say you are a good Father in Law!

Exactly...the 19 would be the same size gun but in 9mm
