When I use caps it is make a specific point. MOST people, in general, could not be trusted with a single action auto, that is why the Glock makes no sense at all for anyone who wants a safe carry hand gun. People can argue all they want, but carrying a Glock is like carrying a 1911 'cocked and UNLOCKED' period! I have ask if you are one of our 'younger' posters, so are you? I have had heated discussions with several 'younger' instructors about this topic for many years. Many of them have NEVER ever used a revolver, but they argue for an auto. Where do you fit in this discussion?
I was just pulling your chain Jim. I am actually not young, and my first handgun was a revolver, Dan Wesson 357 4"

People that have not been there will never understand. What I'm reading is the description of a tough minded survivor.
Yes. If someone asked me who the toughest person I know is, it's her, hands down. No question in my mind, because she was the one that helped me back up, when what I was going through broke me. The onw who wouldn't let me get quit, when I lost all hope.

I always worried about my first wife, if something happened to me. She always did best with someone else around. I don't with this one.

We're not together because we need eaxh other, We are together because we both want the other one in our life.

Might have to do with words in all CAPS, implying yelling Jim. Part of why I dropped the app, as it didn't offer underline, Italics, or Bold, which most of us use for emphasis. When I post from the phone, I use my browser, as these options are on that platform.

And yes, some of us do see it as you yelling at them. Not me, I just see the way you always post.

A Glock is no different than a ton of other semi autos without safetys. People carry them and use then everyday by the millions.

Im far from a " younger" anything concerning firearms . And i cut my teeth on revolvers.
I like them fine. Fact is though most women ive taught do not like them. Especially the much ballyhooded " ladies gun" the j frame.
I get it old guys think revolvers were and are the cats meow.

But nobody in this thread including me knows what " most people " are capable of safely carrying. I like Jim and others know what most follks we have dealt with are like.
But thats a drop in the bucket in relation to " most " gun ownercarriers
You train to how you carry, and what you carry. There are no truly unsafe firearm designs, only unsafe people.

One of the first .357s my, daughter, and I fired was my uncle's 6 inch DW 15.

Wife now has an 8 inch with LER optic, she uses for handgun hunting, and her Christams present last year, was a pistol pack type barrel set, from 2 inch to 10 inch.

Several women have me for instructing or coaching or which gun to purchase, through the years.

Only 2 guys have ever asked what to buy?

What to buy? Whatever is comfortable to you.
What is your knowledge level?
0 or minimal - get some training, from me or someone else.
Basic - Go to a range that rents guns. Shoot a minimum of 4. 2 revolvers and 2 semi. Keep trying different models and calibers, until you find one you love. Get some training, with it.

Revolver or semi doesn't matter. Get what fits YOU.
