guys, if she wants a gun, let her pick it out herself.
there is no way you can do this for her.
many men have tried and several guns later they wish they'd taken her to the gun store instead.
take her to a range and rent a lot of guns.
she's already shot yours but have her shoot them again.
handling pistols in a gun shop is great but i found that shooting them was a different thing entirely.
and don't be afraid to do some reading/searching in the Ladies Forum: many men have done so and been happy they did.....more importantly, the woman in their life was happy they did.
"Her hands, her comfort, her confidence, her choice.", Mr K re buying a gun for a woman.
Gun Control: "The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound."-- as seen on a t-shirt
