The Perfect Carry Gun

I recently purchased a new revolver that I’m very excited to tell everyone about.  It is the perfect defensive firearm for me: simple, light and easy to shoot.  It holds a powerful round with a lot of stopping power so I will never have to worry about hitting my adversary more than once and, even better, it comes chambered in .410 shot so I don’t even have to concern myself with detailed accuracy.  I can literally point the gun, shoot it and won’t have to worry about hitting what’s in front of me.

As a woman having this in a revolver is beneficial since complicated “semi-automatic” pistols tend to be a little confusing and my hands are too weak to properly rack a slide, although I haven’t figured out why I’m trying to use my hand strength to rack the slide when I can use my body weight and a little bit of leverage to easily manipulate any semi automatic handgun.  I am also lucky that my boyfriend/husband/significant other couldn’t teach me to shoot properly and didn’t encourage me to take a training class so he thinks I need a round with ridiculous “stopping power” so I don’t have to actually practice with my carry gun!  This is so much easier than buying a shootable gun and becoming proficient with it I can’t understand why anyone would bother!

I now can stop practicing with firearms because I have such a comprehensive carry gun.  I am just going to load my new Taurus Judge Ultra Lite with Winchester PDX, stick it in my purse and go about my life because even if I am one of the .01% of people who have to pull out a defensive firearm I would never be one of the minority within that minority that would have to use it.  Instead I will just go once every six months in my sundress and high heels (brass burns aside it’s very important I be able to shoot in my daily garb) and hit the floors and baffles at my local firing range!

Have a great April 1st, everyone.

  1. You got me. I was reading the post and was thinking, “Man, Caleb’s going to kick Shelley off the blog when he reads this.”

    Happy April 1st! Tell Caleb he still owes me a GP100 holster.

    Uh… Welcome to the Scottsdale Gun Club?

    (No, I don’t work there, just a happy customer.)

  3. Silly girl…..everyone knows that the perfect gun for a woman is a .25ACP….those of the fairer sex can’t handle anything more powerful than that….

    🙂

  4. You can rack the slide on a Glock 17 – no complexity of external hammer or safety, and holds 17 rounds vs. 6 in revolver. It’s lightweight and easy to manage even for smaller hands. It’s simplicity perfected.

  5. If I hadn’t just been through a week that threatened to burn out my sense of humor, I’d be laughing like hell. As it is, you got a grin and a chuckle out of me, and I think my sense of humor is on its way to being rehabilitated – which is more than I thought I’d be able to manage today…

    Thank you. Thank you lots

  6. Did Taurus introduce the Judge series on an April 1st a few years ago?

    Would’ve been appropriate!
