    She is just as good. She is a gift from my husband.

    My husband and I are going to be getting our CCW permit in about two weeks. I already had a 9mm (my husband gets her bigger counterpart), but this one is a bit smaller and I can carry it and it won't feel like I am lugging around a ships anchor.....lol

    I have a sweet little 12g shotgun that I won at a Wild-Turkey Federation dinner! It comes in great for shooting popper shells when we train our retrievers.... not nearly as portable as yours though!

    I've been thinking of doing this myself, since I'm always driving by myself. I was thinking of a Glock like the one my DIL carried when undercover with the PD, she says it fits her hand lots better than a 38. Also thinking of a Police Special for living under my pillow..cop son and brother both said they'd arrested men where the woman said she just woke up and there was a man standing over her bed....

    Nice Gun. I have a 380 and have had my CCW about 5 months. There are so many people getting guns here it took almost 90 days to process my application.
    I'm a avid hiker and take it when I hike alone.

    We spend a lot of time walking in the woods. You never know who is lurking about out there.

    GULP - I bought a 380 over a year ago and haven't shot it once - I don't even know how to load it! All I have is a box of practice shells (have no idea what the difference is) - one of these days.............

    I plan on putting at least 200 rounds through a few targets soon.
    One day we hope to own some property where we can have our own private shooting range.

    Nice weapon. I got my license in '95 or 96' when the law was passed to legally carry. Before that, I carried a 38 special in my glove box even though it was illegal.

    A very nice piece you have there. I was carrying a S&W 38 and boy was it heavy I now have a Ruger 38 Special it is so lightweight. I have had my permit for a couple of years now.

    I'd be afraid that I would shoot myself, or someone I loved by accident.

    Nice. I was thinking about taking the permit to carry classes too. My husband already has his. Plus we are both avid hunters and we both have rifles and shotguns. I feel safer knowing that my hubby has it when we' re up at our cabin though.

    I have a 38 and feel very comfortable with it. I got my permit to carry liscense about 5 years ago. My dh is a truck driver and I like the fact that I can defend myself.

    I live in the country and have had to shoot a rabid skunk and a snake. I know how to use a gun and pray I never ever have to use it on a person, but, in this day and age, you just never know.

    It would take the police 30 minutes to show up here, and I feel safer with my gun. My shed got broken into about 3 years ago and that really scared me because I was home. Who is to say next time it wouldn't be my house?

    This new gun has a safety trigger. It won't accidentally discharge in my purse. My finger has to be on the trigger to get it to fire.

    When I was a teenager, driving back and forth to school. I kept a logging chain right where I could reach as I got out of the car. Every time I got pulled over the sheriff would ask for my chain and take it away.....LOL
    And I would have to stop at the hardware store and get a new one......
