    +1 to the Gutmacher book. i think every Fl gun owners should have it and read it!!
    also +1 to the Cornered Cat website!! awesome stuff there for men and women both!!

    As mentioned previously, take a class and take the wife. I would also add to the list the following books, both by Massad Ayoob: "in the gravest extreme" and "the ayoob files". They will challenge and correct a lot of myths and preconceived notions that I think everybody has at least 1 or 2 of (yes, even most "gun people").

    I guess the key here is FACTS, FACTS, and more FACTS! but if your wife is not able to have an open mind then all of these might not matter. I personally would start her on the "cornered cat" since it is by a woman, for women and ASK her to at least read the "safety" articles.

    I just do what I want and if the wife does not like it she knows were the door is. On a serious note if you can not turn here with some of the ideas others here have given maybe just do it and do not tell her. Try to keep it hidden and if she finds out deal with it then. This is not the best advice but all i got.

    Hey desibaba: I read thru these replies and you really received a great deal of good advice. Much of it is repetitive, which tells you that there is a concensus on many things involved in having the gun and still having, not only a wife, but a wife who will embrace your use and, perhaps, her use of the gun. One particular reply stuck in my mind because I personally relate to it based on my current quest to have my wife embrace the idea of being able to use a gun. Start with expert advice that you BOTH attend. Start with a 22lr (you can rent one at the gunshop) and learn how to shoot. Have your wife try it--it is surprisingly uneventful and will go a long way to calming her fears. Make sure she wears double ear protection (ear plugs AND ear muffs). My wife's initial doubful comments had to do with the "noise"--the less the better. Move to as low a recoil type cartridge that you can find when you move up to a 38 (which is probably the minimum gun you would want for your kind of needed personal defense). Let her try it--she may not like it even with lo recoil but at least you tried. Hopefully the overall experience will at least allow her to accept your ownership and, in the best of all worlds, convince her that she should know how to use it as well. Good luck and I certainly hope that your Subway is successful not only monetarily but safely, as well.

    LMAO!

    I think there will be some closure to his question pretty soon.

    Maybe she found out he was on a handgun forum and he's not allowed to use the computer anymore.

    Well, I have a feeling it was one of those drive-by cases where someone signs up to ask a question like, "How do I get an anti to like guns" or "What would be the best gun to buy my ______", there was no magic answer, so the OP leaves.

    Ok you can all hate on me later but im gonna go ahead and say it. Hello a recent imigrant from pakistan can get a gun legally in the U.S. Dont get me wrong i dont see all middle eaterners as terrorist but maybe they should have to wait a while before getting access to things like, i dont know guns, pilot lessons, high ranking security positions in our nations soft spots. Maybe im just paranoid but i dont like the sound of this at all. A person who is trying to cope with culture shock getting a gun. This case aside i would like to think an recent imigrant from any country would be under some serious microscopes if there first act was to go buy a pistol. As for advice a scared woman with a gun might provide a burglar with a knife a new weapon. Good luck and remind me to stay away from sub way.

    While I do agree that officials should be a bit more cautions when allowing any immigrant access to firearms due to unknown backgrounds, I think in this case most people here are thinking the OP was being honest and upfront, therefore were willing to offer advice. Most of the time it's the guys that pop up out of nowhere, give no background information, and ask questions pertaining something illegal that we have to watch out for.

    Stay away from subway. The reason Jared lost all that weight by eating there is he involuntarily became bulimic since the food is so nasty he puked right after he ate.

    SIDE NOTE TO ALL: Let's not turn this into a multi-directional flame fest, or this partially-dead thread will have it's plug pulled.
