Listening to a few of those 911 calls where women were alone and there was an attacker doing whatever, or even one when a women stopped the intruder with a firearm made my wife tell me that she wanted a pistol and wanted to get her carry license. They are very powerful.
Now all I have to do is save up all the cash for the firearm she wants. Of course, she wants something expensive... actually more expensive than my carry weapon. :lol:
Also, I had been working on my wife for a long time, and she was never interested. Listening to a few of those 911 calls, and she was definitely wanting to protect herself.
