    I didn't say bitch but, boy was that a fun argument. Oh and don't crack any jokes about shooting her either.
    I'm a little more subtle IRL, but thanks for the advice.

    Here's what I'm thinking:

    Option 1: Take classes first, get licensed, etc then try to indoctrinate her afterwards

    Option 2: Try to make it a marital bonding/growth session by embarking on the journey to gun ownership together like 2 wild eyed school children even though I may risk looking like a sissy to some of the cool range guys. *rollseyes*


    I'm leaning towards option 1.

    You have little kids? Most pistols are sold with a trigger lock these days, I think. I haven't bought a gun in years, so I'm not positive, but you can get one of those. If you take her shooting, a .22 is perfect. It would be good to have some privacy too. You may also consider doing a shooting class with her too.

    Does she do criminal work? If yes, you need a gun. Actually, she needs one in her office.

    Ive not met the woman who hasn't done an about face on her opposition to firearms after a day at the range.
    Start her off with something manageable like a .380 then work from there

    Good ideas. Thing is get them before you have kids. Then teach your kids young and it isn't a problem. Yes, I keep my guns safe locked, hidden, room locked where I keep them etc etc etc.

    Thing is guns aren't as mysterious when they see, hold, and know them. I showed my first gun to my 2 year old daughter. Raised her to respect it like anything dangerous.

    I have a young daughter (16 mnths) and I have gun all through out the house. She can’t get to a single one however, I have made sure of that.

    Like one of the other guys said, I also had most of mine before we started even dating. I told her very early in the relationship that I have guns and if she didn’t like it than we may not be compatible. We have been married 2 ˝ years now and I have no problems with her. I take her to the range on occasion and she loves it, she even wants her own pistol.

    Dude, you wife is a lawyer. Lawyers tend to be analytical. There is tons of research and studies out there about how most of the paranoia surrounding guns are really unfounded. Do some research and show her the evidence.

    The State of Florida as some good info. Also check out a guy named John Richard Lott Jr.

    Do some research, there are studies that show that she is much more likely to get hurt from doing recreational sports like biking then by having a gun in the house.

    Train harder.

    Failing that, arrange a pal to break into your house and expose himself. Get him to steal your cat (which you hate).

    What exactly are her objections? Just that they "scare her"? That's not very rational, though I've encountered that a lot before. I once had someone tell me they were afraid of guns and wouldn't even handle one even after I cleared it right in front of them and reviewed the four rules. I said, look, it's not loaded. Here's the empty chamber. Their response was to say there might be something in there they couldn't see. It was like he (yeah, that's right, it wasn't even a girl) thought it worked by magic or something. You just can't deal reasonably with that kind of irrationality.

    If your wife takes pride in being a lawyer and being "smart" just tell her she's acting like a stupid idiot. When she denies, tell her to prove it by backing up her fear with facts. She won't be able to (because the facts don't support it) and you'll win.

    Ok, on second thought, you really have to appeal to her vanity (scratch the rape idea).

    She needs to feel that she understands guns more than the average person. She can use her familiarity as bragging rights to her professional peers, who're probably like-minded. This will make her "different", and special.

    Once she's on your side, she'll be a powerful ally.

    You just have to get over this initial hurdle.
