I think that carrying one in the house is indeed a good idea. However, my wife is not yet at the point where she feels comfortable enough to do that. I've asked her to take the CCW class with me, but she's not sure yet.

I'd like to take her with me to shoot more often and then get her to take the CCW class. So, for now she said she like to have access to one downstairs (as well as upstairs).

I may just get a Glock 19. Thanks for your input folks.

My wife was the same way. It may not have anything to do with "Not being ready, yet." She may be cautious about the class it self. They can be VERY intimidation especially if she is just getting used to your guns. My wife was that way. NEVER held a gun till we were dating, now she is VERY comfortable with them.

I explained to her that just because you have a CCDW permit, that doesn't REQUIRE you to carry, but you can if you decide to.

See if there are any carry classes for women only in your area. The NRA Women on Target folks can maybe direct you towards one, OR help your local instructor to organize one.

Might make her more comfortable and if like my class, where they ask people to convey their motivation behind getting the permit, she might get an education about the world around her and realize that she might just need it one day.

Beside it is a GREAT place to pick up chics, ........Just kidding.

I have a one story house and I have 4 guns stashed plus the one I carry. The guns are accessible and the locations provide some cover. I started doing that after my daughter called in a prowler and it took the police 45 minutes to get there. She was not rural.

Just because your paranoid does't mean they are not out to get you.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

OK CB. Now I know where that paranoid expresion came from. I really like the one about NY. My wife does not carry so I set up the guns where she would run for cover.
I would not be an old man if I had not been an armed young man. That one is by me.

If you don't have small children and don't have young guests you can "stash" guns. Otherwise it is safer to carry or have them placed where they are not so easy to grab. I'm a noob here but just MHO.
