So my GF wants a gun right... I am not sure if it's the right idea or not to be honest. She's not completely careless, but her driving habits imply to me that she may not need to own one! I don't think she'll ND or anything really, but I am just concerned she may not understand the responsibilities involved with owning one. (I realize that this sounds far worse in type than the actual situation, Im just lightly concerned and worry too much i suppose) Anyway, she is basically getting one whether I think she should or not. I am all about it in a way because it's her right, etc, etc. Also, she is moving to a different town for post-grad where she will live alone and doesn't really know many people yet. I also owe her a graduation present. Should I just go ahead and buy her a gun as a grad gift and make it my mission to make sure she understand the proper care/storage/use/etc?? (she's not brand new, she's been shooting with me for a while and knows her way around them, just not completely fluent yet) So if the answer is "hell yes, but that chick a weapon!" then what should I get her?? I was thinking something like Taurus PT-111 9mm. She's fine with recoil on my HK USPc .40 and even my Kimber UC2 but I think she will be more inclined to shoot more often if it's something a little easier on the wrists. Any other suggestions? She's not really looking for a purse gun or anything so I think something mid-size to compact is the order of the day.... thoughts? Thanks!
