  2. Gawfer says:

    I want my Country back, Fred.

    No more Liberalism, just the fundamentals we were founded on, and the right to govern ourselves with no Gov’t intrusion.

  3. FHB says:

    Damn strait buddy! Only permit I need.

  4. RTaylor says:

    Going to print this, laminate it and carry it proudly!
    Thanks, guys… You know, this would look great on your sidebar :)

  5. Katie says:

    That and a hunting license is all you need today.

  6. Kate says:

    Pfft! I’d like to know why you even need a license to feed your family! Permits for this, register for that. All boils down to the same thing….money!

  10. Kate says:

    Oh….did I forget to mention it? ……….SWIPED! :)

  11. Old Soldier says:

    I printed it out and it is now hanging on my wall at work. My boss wanted one as well. Oh, I do have to renew the one I carry in my wallet this saturday. Damn, 5 years went by fast.

  12. Love it!!! And I’ve taken it too.

  13. Jenn says:

    Anyone want to recommend a nice gun for a gunless gal?

  14. TexasFred says:

    Jenn, I’m going to tell you the exact same thing I have told others, there is NO WAY to recommend a gun to ANYONE in a comments section of a blog or forum, and anyone that DOES, and tells you *this is what you should have* is full of shit…

    I have no idea what your skill level is, how big you are, what kind of hand strength you have or any of the much needed facts that go into buying a gun…

    Go to a gun range that rents guns, talk to the range master, give him all the facts and ask HIM or HER that question face to face…

    Then test fire a variety of weapons, and when you find one that makes YOU happy, that’s the gun for you…

    And don’t listen to ANYONE that tries to TELL YOU what you need, ask for opinions, and tell them, you’re serious but you’re shopping, and don’t let em talk you into anything you’re not comfortable with…

  15. Kate says:

    Inserting 2 cents. :)

    Jenn, go look, hold, see what feels good in your hand. Fire it if ya can. That’ll help you decided what is right for you.

    That ok Fred? :?

  16. TexasFred says:

    It’s OK with me Kate but I gotta say this, *fire it if you can* is some really poor advice, it’s more like if ya can’t fire it, if they don’t have the facility to allow you to test something, walk away…

    Anyone that will sell a non-gun person a weapon, or recommend a weapon, and not have ANY idea of that persons ability, is NOT much of a gun person…

  17. Kate says:

    Well, ok, you’re right. :)

    Honestly, I wish there had been somewhere that I could have test fired the first gun I bought. Sadly, there wasn’t….but I still like it. :) That’s the one major drawback of living in Podunk, TN. :?

  18. Gawfer says:

    git a gun that makes the loudest noise and the biggest hole!

  19. TexasFred says:

    Gawfer, that’s exactly what I did.. :D

    Only reason I didn’t get a .50 Desert Eagle was I figure 14 rounds outta this XD is plenty to take care of any business I may have to attend too…

    But seriously, not knowing ANYTHING personal about Jenn, I wouldn’t make ANY recommendation, no REAL gun person would…

    What’s perfect for me may be wrong for you, and what Wicked Step Mother is comfortable with may blast out of an inexperienced hand…

    Just sayin’…

  20. Robert says:


    Jenn, worst mistake ever made was buying a handgun for my wife, I told her it was for protection, I told her aim for center mass, I took her to the range, I let her shoot and get comfortable with it, she fired it several times and liked it….Then one night, I came home from work early, she got startled grabbed the gun, met me in a dark hallway waving it around like a high pressure water hose and screaming bloody murder, never fired a shot cause she couldn’t get the safety off…..THANK GOD! But had it been an actual intruder, NO HELP AT ALL.
    She now has a mossberg riot shotgun, and I call before I come home early.

    Point is a handgun requires a lot of time and effort and comfort, and Fred is right get something simple, and that is comfortable for you.

  21. BobF says:

    Nothing strikes more fear in me than a scared woman with a shotgun in her hands.

  22. cary says:

    I don’t need to know who’s holding the shotgun, where it is pointed is all I concern myself with.

    Nice picture, Fred (and Gawfer). Snagged!

  23. Katie says:

    I personally like the Desert Eagle Fred, but that’s my personal choice (the Tavor is better but not legal in the US yet). And you are right. No reputable dealer would ever recommend a gun to a person without knowing something about his or her customer. A good dealer not only knows something about his or her customer, but helps people buying their first gun into deciding which one is the best for them. That is how they get repeat business and new customers.

  24. AEGeneral says:

    Forget the sidebar, that would make an excellent bumper sticker.

    Just sayin’.

  25. Gawfer says:

    Just so y’all know, this is a tee shirt that can be purchased

  26. Just loved that picture so bad that I also stole it! :D

    Jenn; Fred’s advice is the real deal. I might add that contacting your local NRA can really help. There are many programs there for women, especially beginning shooters.

    Depending on where you live there most likely is a reputable place to find effective and practical training. Try contacting and see if they have a local affiliate. If you are close to the Denver area I can recommend Prairie Arms in Littleton, Colorado.

    In any case listen to what has been posted here. This persons or that persons “perfect” handgun in all probability will not be the best for you. A hit with a 22 beats a miss from a 50 AE every time when the feces hit the rotating oscillator!

    When I was still teaching tactical pistol I kept several different pistols around for that very reason. The men and women could try out different types and then make an informed decision as to what they should purchase. The over all woman’s favorite? The Smith & Wesson “Lady Smith.”

    I hope this helped.

  27. Thanks Texas Fred and Gawfer. Great Post – Copied without remorse:
