    The lectures at Front Sight for either of the two or four day handgun classes will reassure her in regards to you and/or her carrying. I hope you follow through and go.

    The "Saddlewest" hotel/casino is the best place to stay in the area around Front Sight. For a few dollars they will pack you a "front sight lunch" with your choice of everything in regard to the sandwiches, fruit, drinks, etc, in the lunch. They have an outdooor pool to, of course. They have 'no guns' on the doors, but who the ******* are they kidding?

    What I would advise you to tell your wife is what I tell my wife. Most people do not plan on being a victim, but they also don't plan on being a survivor either. You never know what is going to wash up on your beach, so it is better to be prepared than to be overwhelmed.

    1) Your wife needs to find new friends. Avoid low-life and you avoid problems.

    2) A knife is a deadly weapon. At the very least you should have called the police on the perp for brandishing and intimidation.

    3) Consider getting a non-lethal weapon to carry along with your handgun. It gives you options.

  5. Haha six so true sir! That was years ago and since then I've taught her that just because they are old friends doesn't make them good ones! As far as the second weapon I went with key chain mace. During that whole incident I wasn't intimidated at any time, especially once I got distance on him. I'm sober and he was sloppy drunk, he most likely would have stabbed himself. I've always had some weird jedi force trick that allows me to stay focused during panicky situations

    Local ffl told me the best part of a pink gun is if you ever had to use it, your opponent will die laughing at it and you won't even have to shoot him

It puts me into a more relaxed state and I feel more safe and it makes me feel good knowing that I can protect my wife and kids no matter what happens in most cases. It did take some getting use to at first because you feel like everybody can see your gun, but you get used to it. Now, I feel naked if I didn't have a gun. I wish one of those guys in that IHop would have had a gun, maybe they would be here today.
    BG's can smell fear or timidity and seek out their prey. Your calm exudes a confidence that they avoid liked plague. Even martial artists who carry that confidence are rarely accosted.

    I've been maced (second-hand and not by choice) by the police twice. You either become immune to it or you develop a sensitivity (which is what I did). Find out before you attempt to use it. Personally I hate the stuff. It's too easy to get a face full and incapacitating yourself. Plus, on a keychain it does you no good if someone's trying to carjack you while you are entering your vehicle or while you are driving. JMHO.

    After reading post #1, I believe reality set in on the wife. I don't find that unusual, as I believe there are people who carry without realizing that some day they may have to make the decision to Stand and Deliver.

    JSD, sorry, I guess I need some clarification on the word "reality." His original question had him, in his wife's eyes, murdering her drunken friend while he was sober had he been armed. I guess I didn't see that as a reality for any law-abiding weapon carrier.
