    This training will qualify us for conceal carry in our state, but the really BIG news is that my wife will be taking the class with me, 6 hours next Sunday afternoon! I almost want to write a thank-you note to Queen Nancy & PrezBO since a year ago at this time she was against owning a firearm! Now she agrees with my approach: to git-n-learn while the gittin' is good. :cool:

    Outstanding! It's a great move on both your parts.

    My wife is not a gun person, but she comes to the range once in a while and shoots her Model 60 S&W. She's good with it too.

    My shooting buddy and I sometimes take our ladies and his gf's daughter to the range and then go to lunch afterward. It makes it more of a social event that way. You may want to try it sometime. ;)

    I'm jealous. But, as least you're doing it together. Hopefully it'll come in handy when you least expect it. *2 thumbs up*

    S.S.

    Hey, we've been married over 15 years, and it wasn't until last november that my wife changed her policy from feeling LESS secure with a "gun in the house" to feeling MORE secure.

    One thing she absolutely won't budge on is that I would like to get a motorcycle ("like all of my friends"), but until our children are grown it isn't happening. Oh well 2 out of 3 isn't bad (Corvette + guns)....

    opaww, my brother, no spare wife here. I would point you in the direction of ex-wifey, but I would not pass that biaatch on anyone. She's pro 2-A, but loonier than the bin will hold. *everyone, send excess tang to opaww-he has earned it*

    I wished it to happen for you. Wait for the next knock on the door, and don't shoot until you are done with her. :D

    Cool beans. My wife and I will be taking our CCW class together next month! I took her to the range for the first time today. She handled the gun and the recoil well, and is interested in choosing a good concealed carry after we take the class. Revolver or small pistol? Decisions, decisions...

    Our class will be 6 hours. Interestingly, as of today our state (Virginia) just enacted a new law allowing a training course via the internet to suffice for the training requirement for CC. Dunno the details of which courses would meet the requirement, but I'd still rather get the personal touch and also fire real bullets form a real gun in a range. If I wanted the internet, I'd be....doing....this....

    PS: To make a small clarification re the above discussion about a "spare wife": Having a wife does not necessarily mean 'Tang is in the offing. To the contrary - 'Tang is more rare after marriage than when single (that's what I've heard anyway)! ;)

    What a great July 4th weekend! I bought an XD-45 "Service" plus 500 rounds of 45ACP ammo at the gun show on Saturday 7/4, then on Sunday the 5th, my wife & I both successfully passed the Conceal-carry cert class! Despite a non-loading rented .22, my wife & I passed the range test portion of the class with a perfect score. I was really proud of her!

    And as I'd hoped, she said after the 1st shot or two, she really started getting into it!! Now we're shopping for a conceal gun for her. The instructor recommended a snubnose hammerless 38 for her....:cool:
