Probably doesn't warrant a separate thread but I have to give kudos to the wife. She has been thinking of getting her concealed carry license and finally took the plunge. We took a trip to Panama City last weekend so that the wife could relax and concentrate on learning properly, gaining confidence in her self, and ultimately choosing her gun of choice. To get her started I purchased a Walther P22 for her. I was hoping she would finally decide on a larger caliber pistol and she didn't disappoint. She started with the P22, moved up to the .380 and then the instructor did something totally unexpected. He handed her a Glock 45 and had her fire four magazine's. It was obvious that this caliber was a bit much but I stood back, wondering what the instructor had in mind. Then, he handed her a Glock 9mm. She lined up on the target and ripped the center apart. After the first magazine the instructor had her do fast magazine drop and load drills. While counting over her shoulder aloud, again she ripped the center target apart. After firing three sets of drills he walked her to the target, pointed to her marks and said "you just found out what gun you should be using". She did great and I think I've just lost my 9mm Taurus. We had a great time and it was a true pleasure watching my wife come out of her shooting shell. She gets her certificate this week.
