An open letter to a gun-buying husband

Mia Anstine pens an open letter to a gun-buying husband via her blog at Beretta USA.

 

It seems men are more interested than ever in getting the ladies in their lives involved in shooting sports and self-defense. In their eagerness, they don’t always consider the fit, size, and function of guns, much less the tastes of their siginificant others. Here is what some women may have to say to their husbands regarding their expert choice of side-arms.

Dear husband,

I’ve tried and tried to explain to you that I need to go choose and purchase a concealed carry gun. For some reason, you aren’t hearing my plea. I’m certain you understand the need to defend myself and our family. I’m not sure you recognize other facets that go along with my need to choose my own gun.

I am a better shot than you, even with that over-sized, heavy gun you chose for me. Thanks to it, I now have huge shoulders and my spine is curved from attempting to lug it around in my purse. I have no fear of an assailant stealing said purse: it weighs too much.  It’s sure to bring him to the ground in an instant.
