    To paraphrase Robin Williams, anything that causes you sit on the roof with an automatic weapon screaming get back in the house, is not a "friend".

    BTW; what is she packing for heat?

    S&M 9mm, model 908s. It's actually called by the MFG a "concealed carry model." Is smallish, light, and has a recessed hammer. Only holds 8 in the mag though.

    We have his 'n' hers pistols. Mine is almost the same gun, but a little bigger, model 910s. Holds 15 in the mag, but I only have the 10-rd "California Crippled" mag for now. Well, we both have two mags, our holsters have a slot for an extra holster.

    In two weeks when we move to Wyoming, we're getting "real" guns. 45s. I'm getting a Glock. She's not sure what she's getting yet, we're gonna go to a gun show.

    We're also getting a FAL. Buddy's building us one. Here's me with the one he built himself. It's a little big on me, he's a foot taller than me and built it for his body.

    Probably won't walk around town with the FAL on my hip though.

    You might consider the Taurus PT145 Millennium as her carry pistol. I own and carry one on a regular basis (and I've gotten into trouble with the Libs for it) and find it very comfortable. 10 round mag, .45ACP and once you get used to the trigger quite easy to shoot accurately. Its light, easy to conceal and fits my wife's (relatively) small hands.Best of all you don't need a second mortgage to purchase one.

    btw I hope to put together an M-16A1 clone soon and I'm looking for parts so I can do up an L1A1.

    Excellent. thank you. Will check one out.

    We were looking for suggestions, just too busy getting ready to move to ask for them or do research.

    Just got back from U-Haul looking at the monster sized moving van, and buying boxes. Man, 200 bucks buys a LOT of big boxes!

    You might also consider a .45 ACP Glock 21SF for her. I got one for my daughterwith small hands and she loves it. Her hands are small and it fits well. She normally OC's it in a SERPA and uses a drop-leg holster when she goes jogging around the neighborhood.

    She doesn't like Glocks because they don't have a safety.

    Of course it has a safety! Just don't pull the trigger unless you want to shoot something. No different than revolvers, except the G-21SF has a 13-rd magazine. Many of us don't have much use for a safety anyway. If you are handling your weapon correctly, it isn't necessary and sometimes dangerous.

    Two more cents worth here. You could always go old school with a Government Model. There must be a thousand makes out there although I'd personally go with a genuine Colt.

    I learned hand gun with a Colt Police Special and a S&W model 15 in .38. My very first semi shoot was with a Colt Gold Cup that belonged to my deputy chief in the FD. I've never looked back. I would carry a Colt, but the Taurus iseasier to conceal.

    Just for the sake of accuracy, GLOCK Pistols have three safeties.

    I am assuming you are speaking of an external thumb safety, which they do not have (although you can get an aftermarket external thumb safety added on if you wish).

    Glad to see there are others who don't worship Glocks.

    In my case, it's because I don't like a squared-off slide.

    But to stay on topic -- my favorite T-shirt says "I have PMS and a gun. Any questions?"

    Nice.

    But I have always been a fan of showing people what you're thinking rather then telling people what you're thinking!

    Tess, do you wear that shirt while OCing in public? The idea of wearing such silly shirts greatly appeals to me, but somehow it seems to be something that could turn non gun people off , or just plain draw more attention to your OC, attention that may not always be joking banter.

    I've seen other shirts that say " The ultimate in feminine protection" with a pic of a gun, and the really naughty" guns don't kill people, I do". Grapeshot gave me a card with a womanaiming a gun and it says " first rule of gun safety- don't piss me off!", which is hilarious, but not so sure about wearing a shirt with same while publicly OCing.

    Speaking of shirts that could attract attention, I have an old one with hands around a Glock being fired and says "I don't dail 911". I got too fat for it to fit anymore though LOL.

    One of these days I'm going to get one of the tan colored OCDO hats, the one that says opencarry.org with the gun pic.

    I agree wholeheartedly, XD40Coyote. I think we need to be emissaries while carrying.

    There's also another issue with wearing "don't f*ck with me, I'm armed"-type shirts while carrying, which I posted about here:
    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum6/19825-1.html

    Again with the T-shirts..... Sigh.....

    If you ever have to shoot someone in self-defense, do you want the jury to see a 5 foot x 5 foot blowup of a T-shirt you were wearing that basically says "I like to shoot people" while you're facing 20 years for murder in a righteous shoot?

    This could be true of any "gun art" shirt, but especially of that second one, the one with the parody of the Serenity Prayer.

    Does it occur to you that an ADA could spin that as premeditation, or at least that you were "looking for a fight"?

    Duct Tape is also excellent for field dressing open wounds that require stitches. It sticks better than other tapes when there's a lot of blood involved. I keep duct tape, tampons andfeminine "mouse mattresses" in my 1st aid kit.

    Gorilla Tape TM is much better/stickier than regular duct tape.

    Try it. I think you'll be surprised at the improved effectiveness.
