    Another Texan and Army Veteran

    Hello, I'm Gregg and a new member. I am well acquanted with rifles but only a novice at best with handguns. I got caught up with the post election mania and went out and bought a S & W 642 .38 and a M & P 9c.
    Luckily I have a friend that is a handgun expert and blogger and is pointing me in the right direction ! I plan on a lot of range time in the next few months and eventually a CHL. The only question I have is what handgun I should look at for the Mrs. ........I'm leaning towards a Bersa Thunder 380 ACP because it has decent reviews and is small. All advice is appreciated !

    Welcome to the site!

    I think you've made some fine choices, and proposed choices.
    No flies on any of those guns.

    Welcome from southeast Texas. Good choice in initial purchases. As said above, let your wife pick what she likes. Take her somewhere where you can rent some and let her have fun choosing.
