    That's the issue. I took from GND's post that she was starting on a budget.


    I don't even own one anymore.

    .45 what I reccomend and what I run, anything less is a compromise.
    Not if the .45 doesn't suit. Or comes in a frame one isn't comfortable with, or can't conceal very well.



    I can conceal a full framed 1911 with a tac light under t-shirt and jeans.
    Any good under a cocktail dress (I mean the gun, not you) a business suit, skirt combo, all the other things a lady might find herself wearing. Point being that the GND may not be in a position to wear jeans and a T. in her day to day. Or want to spring for an expensive rig to conceal. - Best go for a firearm that you can conceal anywhere. That way one always has it with you.






    There are specific handbags for this purpose.
    $$$
    And come not between a lady and her bag. Best stay out of that whooooole subject.

    Be told.





    frangables suck. If you want to use something like that, Glazer saftey slugs, but even then, there will be times you might just want to shoot through that sheetrock.
    Like when? When is it a good idea to be able to shoot through walls in a home or apartment?






    This is but step one. a "firearms saftey and handling" class does not teach you how to shoot, nor does it teach you how to fight with your handgun....
    It does over here. And the reason I advised such a course is to request that she gets first hand knowldege from people in person. I mean I could be anyone up to and including a 14 yo girl for all the lady knows.

    Which is why you get it right.



    I don't buy the cheap parachute.
    I do if I have to leave the expensive one at home...

    You have the rest of your life to win a gunfight.... I don't consider extra ballistics "extra"....



    Not if the .45 doesn't suit. Or comes in a frame one isn't comfortable with, or can't conceal very well.

    Like I said, I can conceal a full framed .45 if I need to.... There are other options...


    Reducing caliber for convienence is not a compromise I am willing to make.

    if she doesn't want to "spring for an expensive rig" then she has no business wanting to CC....


    This is not a compromise thing... If you need to carry a smaller weapon in your cocktail dress then by all means select the appropriate tool, however, its a severe compromise in effectiveness.

    And come not between a lady and her bag. Best stay out of that whooooole subject.

    Be told.

    Not really and these work well:


    Concealment Purses - GlockStore.com


    plenty of options that are not too expensive.


    Like when? When is it a good idea to be able to shoot through walls in a home or apartment?


    When your intruder, rapist, aggressor, fails to understand the difference between concealment and cover.



    If he can shoot through sheetrock, and you can not, you are at a disadvantage.


    Remember you have the rest of your life to win a gunfight, prepare accordingly.









    It does over here. And the reason I advised such a course is to request that she gets first hand knowldege from people in person. I mean I could be anyone up to and including a 14 yo girl for all the lady knows.



    Really, they teach you how to fight and defend yourself with a handgun?



    tell me about some of the drills you do.

    It is with great sadness, etc etc, disagree with the awesomeness/Rev, etc etc.

    Just because someone has a budget they have to live within is no reason they should not concealed carry.

    A .38 J-frame, used with skill and deliberation, can save your life... and is a damn sight better than throwing rocks or putting your keys between your fingers!

    Granted, a better gun would be a step up... but I'd rather she buy the Smith J-frame and then spend a couple-three hundred on some decent training, than go into hock for an expensive gun she maybe can't afford to shoot much. Don't be a .45 snob Rev.

    The right to self defense is not dependent on your budget!

    I agree. My point being that if one has the means, one shouldn't skimp out on thier choice for self defense.....

    You have to get different licenses based on caliber? Interesting.

    Will do. Thanks.

    Re: Do you have a conceal and carry license?

    This country is far too interested in guns as a means of self-defense. Honestly, I feel more comfortable with my Benchmade 42 (Butterfly Knife) then I do with a handgun.

    If your going to be serious about self-defense, take an Aikido class, and grab some OC Spray, or a collapsible baton. From personal experience, a Gun can be a Huge liability. Merely drawing it means you have to fear for your life, or those who are around you. In most situations, a well rounded education in defensive martial arts, and less than lethal options, actually bring a lot more options to the table. Also means less time in front of a judge, with people scrutinizing all the actions you took.
