    What handgun should I get for my wife?

    Currently she has s&w 38 revolver. Most of my guns are oldschool, I figured it can't be too hard for her to use a revolver in a stressed situation. I'd like to get her something a little more modern, she's going to get her concealed weapons license and I figure we'll start going to the range for practice. It doesn't have to be pink!, but I'd like to some ideas on compact "chick" guns for ed carry. We manage some properties where we often find ourselves in heated debates...she needs some protection!

    Re: What handgun should I get for my wife?

    Can't go wrong with a subcompact Glock or subcompact Springfield xd. I like the airlite .38 / 357 smith and wesson. She will have to use the .38 the 357 is brutal for follow up shots. The airlite only weighs 11.4oz empty (very light to carry in her purse or in your cargo pant). Here is a link http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ducts_id/26237

    Re: What handgun should I get for my wife?

    Where is she going to carry the gun. In a purse, holster etc.. A lot of the compacts have a short barrel but not much shorter grip making them a little harder to conceal. I like subcompacts for females because of the added concealment and grip size. The best thing to do is go to a large indoor gun range and let her shoot a few different types.

    FYI: If she will be checking on these properties at night make sure she has low flash powder. If you have fired a short barrel pistol at night with a lot of muzzle flash it can take a second for your eyes to readjust.

    Px4 is a great gun but in a small frame 40 for a lady can be a lil over bearing. You don't want her to not want to carry it because it's to powerful. I'd say try a 9mm but let her shoot both to see how she likes it.

    Love glocks I've never had a failure in my glock only problem is it has no safety which makes it a little unsafe if your #1 safety isn't (your finger) isn't properly conditioned to not discharge weapon. So she would end up either haveing a gun she would have to rack in a bad situation or have a loaded weapon in her purse with no safety. Not an ideal situation

    I wouldn't get anything bigger than a 9mm in a sub compact. Even a 9 isn't fun to shoot in that size, but they are cool.

    I love the ruger lcp and I also really love the S&W Body guard. It's a comfortable gun that's easy to conceal.

    The taurus judge is pretty popular but I don't like Taurus that much.

    The Sig is the nicest hands down best quality most reliable little piece I've seen so far. The range next to my house has a rental board full of guns for rent to shoot and the Sig 38 is the only one out of 25 handguns with massive amounts of rounds through it that hasnt jammed once and thats without cleaning for over a month. Very impressive very reliable. !SHRUGS!

    Is so much harder for women to conceal.

    I can throw a full size 1911 in my vest with 4 mags and no one would have a clue.

    Take your wife to a range and have her try out all the decent carry guns. Whichever is most comfortable is the answer.

    The safety issue is a good point but what if she has to use it. She's going to be scared as **** naturally and might only have a slpit second to react and may fumble a manual safety. IMO the glocks benefits outweigh the risks. I carry mine everywhere.

    Def depends on the use but I'd say sw 38 special maybe model 360 scandium or 642 with laser grips any special model is an all around great gun
