What about gun safes? I'm thinking a biometric safe would be the fastest to access in an emergency... anybody have a recommendation on one?

Kel-Tec .380. its light, tiny, and ultra reliable, my wife can clip it in her pocket and its nearly invisible aven in her little jeans.
I don't trust the .380's as a general rule, every one I ever owned jammed. Until this one. When we bought it, I took it home and fired 200 rounds through it. Not a single jam, and MUCH more accurate than I suspected it would be.
AND it's fairly inexpensive

Good starter pistol. Pretty well made but cheap.

To bulky and heavy. Don't know if I'd would trust my life or wife's to a highpoint. Glock sub-compact would be a good choice or maybe a ruger Lcp 9mm with laser.

I carry a Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm. Great for smaller hands..I also have a Springfield Armory xd. 40 cal, a. 40 cal mini Firestorm, and a Glock 21.
If she is an experienced shooter she will no problem with any of these...even if she isnt experienced she should have no problem.

Biometrics work sometimes and not others, if you don't have kids, just put it out of sight.

If you really need a safe, consider this... [link to www.amazon.com]

If this is for home defense and never for outside the home, consider a .410 with buckshot. Shotgun, not the judge. If it is a carry gun also, Then a compact pistol of some form is needed.

Smith & wesson 38 special can shoot through the leather of the purse it's in.

No semi can do that without the potential of a jam from the purse liner.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22385389


They make purses for women for a separate compartment in back that unzips for pistol. They come with and without holsters in them. I have only used mine a cpl times where I just couldnt conceal mine with certain clothes...that may be an option for her also they make holsters for the bra.Fits perfect in the middle of your boobs. I dont have one but a pregnant neighbor of mine does.

Yes! Gun safes are A MUST for a home with children of any age! Thank goodness my kids are grown and they both have their CCW as well as my parents and sisters. We grew up shooting so its an entire family thing for us...I think every American should carry esp. In this day and time..AND WOMEN...KNOW HOW TO PHYSICALLY PROTECT YOURSELF!!!! I am trained in Krav Maga and close combat training and recommend both. I spent years taking Tae Kwon Do and I would NOT recommended it for most women as your primary skill in self defense.

Re: Pistol for the wife?
While there is much good information here, in my opinion it is never a bad thing to get as much input as is possible when considering a purchase that is intended to protect the ones you love. Therefore, I will weigh in with my two cents. I firmly believe that concealed carry weapons for women (and many men) should be revolvers. I am not saying that women cannot handle a semi-auto handgun. In fact, I know women who can out shoot many men with a semi-auto or a revolver. However, a life threatening situation is certainly different than a day at the range, and it is my opinion that a revolver is the safer, more reliable choice (no stove-piping or other semi related issues to deal with). Take a look at the Taurus model 85 .38 spl. It has a small profile (5 shot) and a 2" bbl. It is also capable of shooting +P rounds. Couple this gun with some Speer Gold Dot 135 gr. +P hollow point ammo (used by leo's and specially made for short barrels) and you have a very formidable self-defense system.

Re: Pistol for the wife?
Wife's first handgun was a KelTec PF9. It's recoil was so sharp and the grips were so small (even for her hands) that she just hated it.

So I moved her up to a 1911 commander style 9mm (ok, it was sort of for me too since I wanted a 1911 in something besides 45 .....just because that is neat). She likes it much better. We put some slender grips on it to fit her hands better.
