    My girl agreed to take the NRA course for our permit to carry next weekend. Once we get it I'm picking up a 21 and she's gonna love it!

    Well, with the laws in CT it might be a few months before I can buy it but I'll post as soon as I do.

    Submitted my paperwork and should have my permit in 9 weeks. Until then I'll shoot my buddy's 41 mag. Woohooo!!

    Make sure your GF's hand fits around a 21. I tried my husband's 22 and although I was able to shoot it I eventually settled for a 27.

    Hey Ritylin, got a Q:

    Is it pronounced as in "methylphenidate" ?

    Just curious.

    She shot a S&W model 60 with .38 rounds last week and loved it. She's gonna get that and isn't too cool with larger caliber yet. Great thing is, that gun is a .357 mag so I can enjoy it too!! Shoots both.

    You have no idea how lucky you are that your other half supports and indeed enjoys the sport!

    Others are not so lucky, so be glad of your fortune.

    Make sure to take pics at the range and share 'em, too.

    Cheers!

    I'm actually lucky on that aspect too. My fiancé just submitted her paperwork for CCL earlier this week. If you intend to get a 21 you may be able to settle on a 21SF ( short frame) for smaller hands. I know that they are available for the 30 and I am almost positive they make the sf for the 21 as well. Would make it easier for her to shoot. I will tell you that the 21 will be difficult to conceal if that is your intention. They make smaller .45 calibers you may be interested in looking at first.

    Welcome to the forum. These guys are a class act.... Most of the time. Lol :)

    Thanks for all your comments everyone. My girl and I have an understanding about guns now. She knows I want something with stopping power and a good "bang". She wants that too but will work her way up to it. As for a concealed gun...I'll grab a smaller one but for home protection I'm getting the 21 and for extra fun I plan on a S&W 500. That comes later, though.

    Yep, it's now almost 11 weeks since submitting my paperwork for a carry permit. Gotta love CT. Going back to the local police in a day or so.

    Just sucks the govt makes a law abiding citizen wait this long. If I were a criminal I would have been able to buy 20 pistols by now.

    Wow, I guess I didn't understand at first. I'm just waiting on my concealed carry permit, I already have the gun. You have to wait that long just to get the gun? That's ridiculous!
     
  20. Go with a G30 with the G21 mags, +2 extension and mag-sleeve for 15 rounds while at home, and can carry it with a 9 or 10 round mag.

    Move to Texas, can walk into a store and leave in 20 minutes with your gun of choice... Just give them your drivers license and they'll get authorization from the state, and if you're clean you'll be a happy man (or woman, as the case may be).
