    Most likely, unless she catches the bug like me and decides to start her own collection

    Not sure what that means or if I'm going to answer this correctly but in the state of Connecticut all you need is 1 permit to purchase as many handguns as your wallet, or in some cases, wife, will allow you.

    The permit is good for 5 years. Renewal is $35 for the next 5 years.

    Ruger 22's are hard to beat and they are cheap too! There are others but
    this brand been in my house for 25 years and we've shot thousands of rounds with no problems. Can't beat that!

    My wife loves her Sig Mosquito and wishes it shot something bigger than 22lr. For CC and serious business she has a Bersa Thunder .380. Both guns are hers by her choice.
    At the range she usually starts with the Mosquito and shoots a few mags, then shoots a couple of mags with the Bersa, and then has more fun with the Mosquito.
    Having a gun your wife likes shooting means the two of you can enjoy range time together. (you get to the range more and for longer).

    Question How do you like your XD40?

    Hi! I see that one your guns is an XD40. Do you like it better than your 9mm? I'm trying to debate whether to get a .40 caliber or 9mm gun for my first. I know the 9mm is cheaper but which one is more fun to shoot?

    Thanks!

    Hi JF2

    If you want a fun to shoot gun buy the 9MM. If you want to put Bear and or Bad Guys on the ground buy the .40S&W.

    I have both and prefer my 9MM for fun but shoot the XD40 a bunch so if I ever need to I can hit something with it.

    Enjoy.

    I find the 9mm Luger and .45ACP much more enjoyable to shoot than the .40S&W.

    I would never depend on anything that doesn't at least end in "Magnum" or have a 16" barrel for bear. I hear bear get mighty upset when anemic pistol rounds are fired at them.

    "Big" Bear are the reason I carry a pocket knife for backup.

    First gun

    Well, whenever anyone asks me in person what to get for his/her first gun,
    I recommend a .22 because the ammo is cheap and recoil is usually
    manageable. Rugers, either revolver or semi-auto, are very good low
    cost/high qualilty guns.

    On the other hand, I do not recommend a Walther PPK, PPK/s or PPK/S-1 to
    anyone who does not have any experience with semi-auto handguns.
    These are definately not first timer guns. The caliber is small (.380acp aka
    9mm Kurtz) but the guns are so small that recoil is noticable.

    So, get her a 22 rim fire and let her shoot the heck out of it. Then let her
    move up to a center fire is she wishes.

    Good luck, have fun, and be safe!
