Just read another "my GF used to hate when I carry but she's coming around" thread, so thought I'd start one of my own:p. Feel free to share any good stories you may have. Just curious how others' 'others' feel about this. My wife used to roll her eyes whenever I reached for my gun before we go out, but one night we were driving in downtown Portland, and came to a stop by a bus stop. There were some folks there waiting, obviously impatient, and when we rolled up I heard one say "man we should just take their car." My wife and I both heard this, just as a fairly large man turned toward us and said "this is a jacking, fool!" We made eye contact and we could both tell he was only playing around (idiot.) As we drove off, she laughed and said "boy he'd have been in for a surprise!" I could tell she was excited, but also obviously felt very safe, knowing I had my XD45. Your thoughts/experiences?


EDIT: Crap! Forgot to make it a poll, now it won't let me. Sorry. Any stories anyway? Advice on how to add a poll?:oops:

My wife could really care a less either way. She knows that it is the safe thing to do, though. Very supportive overall.

Where I go my XD45C goes with me. Everywhere in the house (except showers) and everywhere out in town (except where law prohibits). She looked at me like I was retarded until we watched a cracked out idiot try to break into the apartment, who's door is 20 feet away from ours, one night with our windows wide open and in full view of us. After he saw me and my XD he took off. For a short while she wanted to start carrying again(she has a permit) and didn't blame me for carrying. Now she's back to the complacent attitude and see's no reason for it.

She doesn't care. They can't even own guns where she's from. Even if she did care that wouldn't stop me from carrying.

She has "her" gun but does not carry. She is down with me carrying. She is planning on getting her CCW as well.

My wife told me that if she found out that I was carrying while she was around she would throw it in the trash. I carry everywhere else when I'm alone where legal.

I would have serious issues with that.

Mine dosen't even like the fact that I own a gun let alone that I would cary it, we have had mutiple shootings within 10 blocks and she still hates the fact that I have a gun in the house, I had it out with me the other night and she told me to put it away WTF? I am not going to sit around and wait for someone to assualt me before I make a point to carry or to have it near me to portect myself or loved ones. my woman just needs to get over it!

My wife also has the attitude that it's not necessary but does not say a word, she was alittle more vocal when i started to roll my own
