Im a mother of four and one is a toddler. My question is what is a safe gun to carry? What is the best place on my body to carry because I still have to pick her up at times?
The Bersa 380 is my wife's current "most comfortable/best fitting" gun, and it IS an accurate, reliable shooter. The Bersa Thunder is a very good choice if you are comfortable with it.The only gun I've shot us my husbands XDM 9mm. I like shooting it but its too bug for me to cc. The gun I'm looking at right now is the Bersa Thunder cc or Bersa Thunder Plus. Thank you for the advice regarding the position of the of the gun.
Great product by SideLock! I'm getting two of them for my Glocks. I'm old school and this is just a little more peace of mind.small of the back inside the waste band is probably best location of carry for a mom of a toddler, just my opinion of course, but thats the one spot on your body least grabbed kicked or bumped by a toddler
The level of safety for any gun is always determined by who has the gun, not what type of gun it is. I know thats hard to swallow for alot of people, but no modern halfassed quality firearm will shoot until you squeezes/pull/push the trigger. If you are not comfortable with a Glock's lack of finger/thumb operated safety switch you could get the slider lock. http://www.siderlock.com/ Or there are countless other quality firearms out there with a safety switch.
I'd suggest getting to a range that rents alot of pistols, find whats comfortable for you and stick to it.
