    she wanted something she "liked" we went to cabelas, she liked the taurus [​IMG], the keltec p3at, [​IMG]the bersa thunder .380 acp[​IMG]
    i suggested she get a used gun they had there, it was a s&w chambered in .41 magnum and it was only 299, i thought it was a great deal she got the bersa

    Good thing she stayed away from the Taurus. I cleaned up a friend's mom's .25 Taurus and it definitely took some finger strength to reciprocate the slide, she couldn't even budge it. Mags sucked, saftey sucked, mag release sucked.

    Something simple like the Kel-Tec or the Bersa was a much better choice.

    The slide of that gun isn't designed to be pulled back - that's why the barel flips up. I can even barely do it.

    What if she gets a phase 1 or 2 malfunction? I just think it's an extremely poor choice for carrying.

    That's why i recommend wheel guns to first time female gun owners.

    Women are not weaklings or idiots. Don't treat them like they are, and maybe more of them will own firearms. Maybe more will own firearms that are actually useful in a gunfight.

    And to quote someone from forever ago: There is nothing "thunder" about a Bersa .380.

    I never said they were, but that doesn't change the fact that a wheel gun is the best option for a first time female gun owner.

    :rofl: You're an idiot.

    Even though i've never come across anyone that couldn't fire a DA revolver, if the DA pull is too strong - they won't be able to operate any gun.


    And if they want more capacity, I SHOW THEM SOMETHING DIFFERENT. But if they can't pull the slide back, i don't sell them the gun.

    If they can't pull the slide back, it's a lack of technique, NOT a lack of strength. With a few exceptions, of course. There are shitty guns that no one should carry. But any suitable carry gun is operable by any woman, barring physical disability. Again, I submit as evidence, an 11 yo girl, 75 lbs., doing JUST FINE on a pretty intense, two-day pistol course.

    Nice, my wife carries one. Nice little conceal gun.

    when we were at a gun show, she was looking at another one from a dealer table, and they guy told her it was too much pistol for her. She wanted one she could just leave in her vehicle, identical to the one in her purse. She looked the guy in the eye, picked up the one on the table, field stripped the slide and reassembled it without a hitch, barely taking her eyes off of the guy and put it back on the table, then showed him the one from her purse. She told him "Don't ever tell a woman what she cannot have". She went to the next table over to buy one instead, I manly pushed the baby stroller full of kids behind her.
