First off, sorry for the late reply. I spend the weekend north of the border with herself and the kids. That's family time.
That would be my ultimate nightmare.
All dependant on your size, your lifestyle etc. You get the one that fits most of your situations because you can keep it with you most of the time.Like I said, I can conceal a full framed .45 if I need to.... There are other options...
Often times that decision may be made for you. As I said it depends on who you are and what you do.Reducing caliber for convienence is not a compromise I am willing to make.
Wanting the best and being able to spring for it are two different things. For example I want a Ferrari. That doesn't mean I should drive a car though. Until I can afford a Ferrari or until I'm in a position to get the best out of a Ferrari, I'll drive my VW. It does the job it's supposed to. Sure it wond do 0-60 in 3sec. But how often is that needed?if she doesn't want to "spring for an expensive rig" then she has no business wanting to CC....
The point being that the lady is only beginning. I feel that it is a much better idea that she is comfortable and competant using a single type of firearm before throwing in a second. I may be underestemating her, but I guess she's at the beginning of a learning curve.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.
Ok, here we go.Really, they teach you how to fight and defend yourself with a handgun?
tell me about some of the drills you do.
First off, I was incorrect in saying that.
They do not teach that.
It is illegal in this country to provide that level of training.
The nearest a civillian or non law enforcement can get is Practical Pistol.
That particular discpline is only legal here in the last couple of years.
I want to say 2005, but I'm not sure. My training predates that by about 15 years.
So we may be talking about chalk and cheese. Add to that that what we call 'advanced' is not what you call it.
I'll have to remember that in future.
