    My wife decided a while back to get into shooting to go with me, and then decided to carry as well. We got her CCW and after a bit of testing, she decided on a KelTec P32. Well, now she decided she doesn't like it. She's not ready for a small frame 9, doesn't want a revolver, and does not like a .380. I'm going to try and get he accustomed to 9mm by getting her something full size, say like a S&W VTAC or Glock 19. I was just curious of others who've dealt with this type situation and what you did to resolve it. I'm think if I get her a fullsize 9 and she gets acclimated to the recoil of a 9 then we can move her into a carry 9 down the road 9 (and I'll have another full size handgun in my personal arsenal!) :cool:

    I can't even get my wife to carry groceries. No way she would carry a gun.

    Nothing right now. I will get her to carry something one day, just got to keep gettin her hands on different guns till she figures out what she likes. She has yet to shoot my Kel-Tec PF9. She was tellin me about the gun bras she saw at a gun shop the other day. She thought that was neat. I guess she must have dosed off in the CHL class we took together when the instructor was talking about various carry holsters :rolleyes:

    When my wife carries its a revolver. Ruger LCR. Great little gun. I know that's not what your looking for, but my wife said the same thing until she started shooting more guns. After trying different guns, she found she really liked it. Good luck.

    My wife started with a snub .38 5-shot revolver (Taurus 85) and absolutely loved it. She was very accurate with it. Then we both decided that purse carry wasn't ideal for many reasons. Mainly because that's the first thing a mugger grabs and another big reason is because she leaves it on store shelves way more than you would think :/ Anyhow she decided the only way she would probably carry on her would be pocket carry. She's about 5'4" and 110 pounds, so she can't hide anything very well anyway. She handled every little pocket pistol she could and decided on a Ruger LCP with a laser. She loves it! We're gonna get her a pocket holster with the faux zipper flap and also a bulldog cellphone style holster I think.

    Answering for myself(girl) :) i currently am carring a Kahr P380 and am in love with it. Shoots great, reliable and on my 105lb frame i am able to carry on body without too much fuss. Just takes shooting lots of guns and deciding if you are going to carry on body or not. I cant get to mu phone when its ringing in my purse and there is no way i could get to my gun in an emergency fast enough! HTH

    A Sig p239 I think? It's the 9mm version of their little gun.

    Full size 1911 for me all the way baby. And it conceals on my fat ass too!!

    She carries pepper spray but is scared of the very nice Victorinox Swiss Army Knife I gave her as a TOOL for her purse -- damn thing has a flashlight built in! I am very worried about her sometimes when she is out and about and suggested putting her under a bell jar when I'm not around but she would have none of it...

    My wife carries a kahr cm9. I bought it for my EDC and she feel in love with it. She is only 5'3" and 135lbs and has no problem with the recoil. She hates my 19c all I here is its to big. So size does matter!!!!!
