I like that my wife and I also took our class together, and that she carries. It might be awhile before I can get her to OC, but at least she carries and has training.
Meanwhile, she is a darn good shot too.
My instructor claimed that women are better suited by nature to shoot well. Their center of balance is lower so they've got a better platform to start with. A better platform means they have better stability. So they have a little edge on us guys.
Glad you got training and squared away for filing for your permits.
