I always encourage women to take the steps necessary to protect themselves and their families.
When my youngest stepdaughter moved out I purchased a shotgun, a Remington 870 Express, for her personal defense along with a flashlight and a couple of bottles of pepper spray.
Now that the young lady is about to turn 21 she informed me what she wanted for her birthday was a handgun.
After doing some searching I found an excellent first handgun for her defensive needs; a Smith & Wesson Model 10 (slim countour) with a 4" barrell.
Once she is more familiar with handguns her preference may be for a semi-automatic weapon like the Glock 19.
But for now this weapon will be adequate to insure her safety.
I pray fervently that this weapon need never be used outside of the range.
But I will rest easier knowing she has a Mr. Unfriendly there to back up her resistance to becoming a victim.
