    I got my wife a .38 Special with a 6in. barrel to hold down the kick. She seems to like it a lot. She also likes to shoot my S&W .22 Revolver.

    Is that just for shooting or will it be a carry piece? Reason I ask is that sounds a little long and heavy for concealed carry especially for a woman.

    You are indeed a lucky man, and your wife is a lucky woman.

    I think the idea that we're responsible for our safety has really hit home with recent events in the media. By the time you call 911, and they arrive, the BGs are gone. She's still nervous but at least she wants to go shooting again. I hope to convince her to do the CWP class soon.

    I couldn't agree more. This is exciting news! I wish you and your wife the best of luck.

    It sorta happened the other way around in my case. Last year, with the upcoming elections and fear that Obama would be elected, and we would find ourselves in more need of self defense, she decided she wanted a carry permit and a gun.

    I did not own a gun, nor did I share her concern or feel the need to get one. I didn't say much, at first. I wanted to make sure she was sure.

    She persisted, and to show support, I started looking into it, too. I ended up getting us both a gun. We got professional training and put in some practice. We then obtained our licenses.

    So, if it weren't for her interest in becoming armed, I wouldn't be a gun owner or a CHL carrier, or a forum participant.

    I just posted these comments on another thread:

    My life actually changed more when my wife began to CC.
    I'm not as concerned about her becoming a victim; especially when she is with our children. I'm much more at ease when she and the kids have gone somewhere without me.

    Another BIG plus is the way it has significantly improved our relationship. Since she has been CC'ing, we have become a much, MUCH better team! ALL parts of our relationship have improved significantly. (25+ years & better than ever!)

    I would strongly encourage every "Guy" out there with a significant other to get their wife/girfriend involved in the CC revolution. My wife did NOT like firearms until she to a CWP class. NOW she is an NRA RSO and takes as many advanced firearm defense classes as she can.

    I'm a truly "Blessed" man!

    That's great, tcox4freedom! My wife said today that she can't believe how much I've changed her feelings about guns. Now she feels like something is missing if I don't have a gun with me (which is never) but she's asking about it now. LOL
