    Maybe he tried to pick his girlfriends gun and is out after having it removed?

    Let her pick what she likes. Even if its a 22. Some gun is better than no gun. If she doesn't like what you (we) pick she won't use it.

    Give her the budgeted amount and tell her how to find the gun shop. Whiles she is shopping go to the range.

    Here's how it works at my house...

    She decides the 20th anniv gift is a matched pair of EMPs (for the slow kids, she picked hers AND mine). I buy them. She decdides she likes pink VZ grips. I buy them. Pink grips arrive. I install them.

    Simple, yet effective arrangement.

    What if she picked a matched pair of Hi Points and you had to carry it or you'd hurt her feelings and she is very sensitive?

    Nah, she's on the Cornered Cat bandwagon and knows better.

    Well, she has good taste in handguns! Seems like a keeper. The EMPs too.

    There ya go!
    Although you might not want to leave her alone at the store. The guys in most gun shops treat women poorly, talk down to them and try to sell them something they really don't want. (and for too much money) We should be there to make sure they don't make a mistake because they are lied to. Other than that they should carry what they want to carry! How would you like someone telling you what you should carry? I know I wouldn't like it.
