I'm looking at a new smaller framed carry pistol than my SA XD. The two I've looked at so far are the Beretta Nano, and Ruger LCP. These both have something that I'm not used to, and thats that the...

I've done some research on the net and found only one bad review, and the guy really didn't have much good to say about it. He was negative on the recoil, trigger pull, and the button for the laser....

I'll be interested to hear how you like shooting the BG. I should have bought one of these instead of my recent purchase; I want a revolver, really like the looks of the BG, and like the included...

Any IWB holsters for .40 with a light

I just bought a new XD .40, and am already spending money on accessories. I use an Uncle Mikes IWB for my XD 9mm, and have been really happy with the quality for the price. I probably won't carry...

I think the defense classes will be the first step, and hitting the LGS more for practice also needs to be done. I used to sit down with her every few months and hand her the 9, and ask her to show...

I've told her that about the shotgun. I think that anyone that hears a shotgun being racked is going to think twice about going any further into a home they just broke into. The problem with that...

Jon- she likes going shooting, but doesn't like my 9mm, and an older .380 I had jammed real bad so that wasn't fun. I think she would be ok with shooting the AR over the shotgun since it has less...

I really like the SW Bodyguard, but again I wouldn't trust her carrying one in her purse. Of the two, I'd rather she had the revolver, but from what I've seen it doesn't have a safety, or am I wrong...

Is storing fully loaded mags hard on the springs?

I've always been worried that keeping my clips fully loaded is bad on the clips themselves. On my XD, I have the standard clip and the extended clip, and I don't keep them fully loaded, especially...
