The other day I mentioned to my wife that I thought she ought to get her permit to carry as I can't always be around. She really didn't say much at the time. She isn't anti gun cause she grew up on a farm in a family that hunts and fishes pretty heavily but she's just not a gun nut like me, lol. I talked to her today on the phone and she saw another shooting on the internet and said she now wants to get hers. Im thrilled to tell you the truth cause now I've got a reason to add another gun to the family and ill feel better about her going shopping by herself. I told her she could carry my Bersa .380 or buy one for herself when the money came about. I'd like to hear what the ladies of the forum or wives of members carry to give us some ideas. She'll most likely carry it in her purse btw.
