    Cool

    Thanks for the replies guys! On another note took the wife to the range today and well, lets just say im not worried about her putting hits on the target. She liked the bersa thunder, range only had a .45though, so we didnt shoot it. She liked it cause it was "cute", gotta love women. lol.

    Just make sure you let her shoot it first before buying (whatever it is). I have a snubby smith airlight .38...it is a handful to shoot being that it is so light..The lightness of it makes it nice to carry and not so nice to shoot. I would be way more comfy shooting 200 rounds out of my .45 than 50 out of the snubby...granted, in her case (and in mine) I doubt if I would shoot anything beyond 10 ft with it since that is where the self defense range is gonna be..A steel snubby with more weight will be more comfy...Make sure if it is an auto that she can rack the slide to chamber a round if it jams...also understanding the safety's it has too...

    Good gun handling skills is a must too...No matter what the gun

    I've got you beat. Before my wife and I started looking at guns, she said she wanted a pink one.

    Sorry to here about your wife's ordeal. Just this week a coworker lady 68 years old was in the fenced company parking lot with guards one gate and got robbed. The dirtbag even had a parking pass to get in go figure. My wife has a lady smith but wanted a upgrade that being said off to the gun shop we go. Fist thing she said to the salesman " I ant to play with the big boys " Long story short she wanted a 40 HD but she wasn't strong enough to pull the slide back. In the end she picked a Bersa Firestorm 9MM just like the one I already have but it was not her's so she bought her's identical to mine and she is a happy camper. I just couldn't get her to by me another toy and take mine but it was worth a try.

    Wow my Dad and Step mom live in Pembroke Pines and they have 3 little boys! :O I hope that the whole town hasn't gotten that way! It's kind of wierd though because my dad just bought a Kimber Custom II a couple of weeks before I got mine. Maybe he knew the area was shady?

    Let her go to a few shops, see what they have and choose. If it doesn't fit HER it's not going to be liked by HER.
    Second and equally importnat, get her some top level, profession training. Not the basic small town stuff - that's kindergarden. Get her, and yourself if you haven't yet - some higher eduction in this area.

    You have NO sense of adventure.

    To hell with giving. I know it's Christmas and all, but you need to SELL those clones!

    Back on topic, With regards to the likelihood of a Glock or similar going off when dropped, while nothing's impossible, the chances are slim to none. Also, look into some of the Berettas with tip up barrels. It eliminates the need to rack the slide to chamber that first round. Still have to rack a jam though.

    I wouldnt say that, its more that miami seems to get a little crazy during holiday time. Just didnt expect a robbery of a hair store in that area, but def. cant wait for my ccw and hers to get here in the mail.

    Agreed. When my wife bought her CC gun she wanted something "pretty". She bought a Beretta 84FS in stainless steel. It was her choice.
