OK, DH and I are taking firearm lessons, and then we are going to apply for handgun permits in our county. The main reason for this, is actually self-confidence on my part, for him it's mainly because I feel he could use them. We do not own a gun yet, obviously. I am asking your opinions on what would be something that I could handle on the small side. Preadtors are an issue here, yes, and we would need to get something that one of us could use to dispatch one quickly, if the need arises. If we could just limit it to opinions on which one is best based on personal use, that would be great. And it is not limited to ladies, either. Thanks.
