Re: Concealed Carry for Women

My fiance went through an NRA safety course that included a concealed carry but she didn't get a chance to handle many pistols.

Re: Concealed Carry for Women

I know a half dozen or gals that carry. Every one has a revolver. A couple mention that the clip is difficult for them to load on the auto and they don't fit their hands as well. The also like the simplicity and can hit what they aim at.

Re: Concealed Carry for Women

Good suggestions thus far. Also the LC380 may be good for recoil sensitive.

Also, the corneredcat website is one I recommend all ladies read if they are considering a CCW. There are others that address the subject, but this one is written by a gal that knows her stuff and has some good pointers men don't think of (obviously).

Re: Concealed Carry for Women

I was on cornered cat reading a few articles last night. I have a feeling that I will end up finding a new pistol for myself as well. I have an xdm compact in 40 that just seems too big to carry all the time. I always find myself reaching to see if I'm printing. I also carry a lot less than I used too.

This is an overwhelming complaint and its not just the women, I see this all the time from people who consider themselves "gun people".

Re: Concealed Carry for Women

One overwhelming them I am getting from all the responses to this thread, is that all the examples given by individuals result from, or can be attributed to, the lack of training and or experience level of the individual. This is the main reason I steer people away from the small j frame sized revolvers. Sure they fit smaller hands well, but they have at most depending on the caliber 6 rounds. 6 rounds of ammunition is NOT enough in my opinion.

I have had her shoot several hundred rounds through my buckmarck but she is unable to operate my xdm or 1911. (Operate the slides and the 1911 is too big for her hands)
