Does your girlfriend/wife have her permit


My wife has her permit and it was her idea. She has shot since she was a young girl and claims to be a better shot than I, but of course, I disagree. I won't get into who is better when we shot together.
 
Im with everybody else. It was her idea all the way. And now my 20 year old daughter is expressing intrest in obtaining her permit in a year or two as well. A family that ccws together....is just plain sweet! :laugh:
 
My wife has hers. It was my idea..."in case she ever has to drive the truck and the gun is in it"...even tho legally she'd be exempted from that even if she didnt have her license...there is always be that "one" LEO that doesnt know that law.
 
How about it folks, who here among us has taken the time to get your girlfriend or spouse trained.

Did you have to convince her, or was it her idea ?

... and more importantly, what color did she duracoat it.


My wife to a cc class almost two years ago; because I wanted her to feel more comfortable with firearms. Not only has she been carrying ever since, she has gone to get additional training over the last two years. (She even assists a couple of instructors on a regular basis.)

She also has bought more guns and ammo in that time frame than I have; and spends more time at the range; where she can easily hit bowling pins at 50yrds with both her PCW and her 380bug. (Yes; she's a better shot.)


NO; there are not any powder coated "pink" guns around here. (My woman is my "black" gun baby.)
 
Wife is Gov't trained..
She decided she wanted to get her permit after I got mine..
She carries whenever she is out and happy with her P238 (all Black)..
She has added a good .22 Plicker pistol to our list of wants.. Thinking about the Neos or the KelTek 30 round pistol. We will probably go with the Neos as the KelTek is a .22 Magnum.
 
MY 24 year old son had his permit and he convinced us to get ours. My wife and I took the class together.
 
My wife is comfortable with shooting our 1911 and 357 but just doesn't really "enjoy" it. She can hit center mass at 7 yrds. That's all I want right now. A bit heavy, too loud she says. It's just a tool, I told her, use it accordingly.
NOW, I went to an outdoor range in the Francis Marion Forest a couple weeks ago and she asked that the next time I go, can she come..............Ya plant a seed, nurture it, care for it and hopefully it'll grow. I'm hoping to get her to want to take her CWP class within the next year. Some things just take time. :pleasantry:
 
I was lucky. My current sidekick is an IDPA and IPSC shooter.

We can't find the money to buy all the pistols and rifles and shotguns that we desire. :biggrin:

If you ever make up to the Florence area give me a call. My wife is EXCELLENT at encouraging other women; and working with them to build their confidence/competence levels.
 
My wife is in the process of getting her permit. She is taking a class next month. She comes to the range with me sometimes and loves to shoot. It was a combination of my influence and her idea to go and start the process, which is lengthy here in PRMA

-Capo-
 
Took my wife on a "surprise" vacation to Vegas a couple years ago. However, we went to Front Sight for 5-day defensive handgun course. Although she had never fired a weapon of any type before this, she ended up having a great time.

She has her permit, and her carry peice is 9mm XD. She did fire my .45 XD last week at the range and said she didn't notice any difference in recoil...so...new gun on the way!
