    What pistol does your spouse carry/or use for home defense?

    My wife did a range session with her Glock 17 recently and is considering something that is smaller and that fits her hands better.

    I’m open to suggestions.......

    Best,

    My wife loves her Shield. Sister-in-law has a P365 and likes it.

    My wife doesn't care for my Glock 34 (house gun) or my 26 (my carry gun). Too chunky.

    Personal carry selection can be a bit of a challenge when it comes to comfort, handling, and adequate performance. Ideally you should have some guns to try at the range, either rentals or a friend's gun(s). From experience, I've found that just because I thought it would be best is not always correct. LOL!

    I too find the Glock & Shield sized compacts outside of my preference for concealed carry. We carry Kahr PM9s.

    My wife’s home defense gun is 56 Colt Cobra. However if you want something a little smaller, that fits the hand better. Try a Glock 43x, smaller and a single stack (10 rds ) that fits the hand very well.

    My wife keeps a little S&W hammerless .357 in her purse and has the choice of a wide variety of Colt and S&W revolvers and Colt, S&W and Savage auto loaders for home defense if her purse gun is not handy. I guarantee, if she gets her hand on any one of them, she will get the job done.

    She has an LCP that she shoots well but prefers her S&W 642. Pick it up and pull the trigger works for her.
    Her choice in range gun is my Kings Gun Works .45 that I've owned for thirty five years with 185g SWC loads.
    I do love that woman.

    For home defense, my wife has a Winchester M1300 20 gauge pump. I shortened the stock to fit her and the barrel is 18 1/4". It is loaded with bird shot...fine for "in the house" distances and no major over-penetration worries.
    While she does OK shooting semiautos, she very much prefers a revolver. She had owned/tried 380 and 9mm Sigs, Colts, Walthers, S&W's and Glocks, her current purse/car gun is a Taurus Model 85UL loaded with 138 grain Winchester Supreme 38 Special +P ammo.
