Have not been able to convince her to carry ... she does have one of those two-shot Kimber pepper spray gizmos ..

No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

She carries a Sig p238. I tried to get her to pick a 9mm but she likes the way the 380 felt and shoots.
Always looking for a good hunt!

Im still working on mine. She is stubborn as a mule. She carries mace and one of those defensive cat keychains (forget the actual) and she thinks shes invincible. Ive tried everything from scare tactics to buying her HER OWN gun but nothing works. She says shes not comfortable enough to carry a gun but she refuses to go to the range to GET comfortable. Thats why she doesnt go anywhere without me at night and only with another fight-capable friend or family member at other times. One day ill get her to carry. We are still pretty young so there is time.

Most often a Firestorm .380.
Her alternate choices are a SP101 or a M&P9

She lets me test their functioning occasionally.

My wife carries her trusty Sig P226.
I need to get her something more compact but she loves that Sig. She's a retired LEO.

Does Your Wife Carry

My wife doesn't like guns, but my girlfriend is getting her CHL.

(Not a dirtbag. My ex and I have been separated for over 2 years, but we get along great. We've been lazy about the divorce.)

As I am just now getting ready to start carrying, this is new to my wife. She doesn't like guns and won't even touch one. She doesn't mind that I'll be packing so maybe she will realize it's not a bad thing. I did however, just buy a little .380 Taurus for my daughter. She liked shooting at the range with me. Maybe a little too much...

My wife is at a CCW class as I type this. She is in the Army reserves and earned "expert" level with both rifle and sidearm at her last qualifications, so being around guns isn't a problem, nor is my carrying. However, unless the instructor says something to change her mind, she doesn't plan to carry on a daily basis.

She couldn't really decide on what to carry, so I suggested the Bersa BP9CC since it isn't quite as miserable to practice with as most of the pocket pistols she'd initially had in mind. (That, along with the fact that I wouldn't object to carrying it myself.)
