I need honest opinion related to HCP Class

Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing MrsMonkeyMan!

My wife and I recently completed our HCP class, and she is catching up submitting her paperwork.

Next-step is finding the right piece and a way for her to conveniently carry. What is your preferred method when out and about? Do you find the 10mm Glock to be difficult to shoot? My wife found the 9mm too much for her, but was OK w/ the .380 (despite some cycling issue's w/ her grip).

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

If your wife didn't like the 9mm then a 10mm probably won't be ok with her. I personally started on a 5" 1911 .45 when I started shooting so recoil doesn't bother me at all. I in fact like a bigger, more powerful gun. Insert corny joke that I like my guns like I like my men.

All joking aside, my Glock 29 is smooth to me. We also own a 26 too. I've discovered a few things about myself since I started this. I love glocks and I love larger calibers. Your wife might be the opposite of me. If she likes .380 then she might like what I joking call the "pocket cricket" which is my husbands "small" carry. It's a Smith and Wesson Bodyguard. I've shot it, meh, not for me. I carry my 29 as a EDC and occasionally I will also carry my 26. I've rapidly become a fan of glocks but I also love 1911's. I've got my eye on 2 of those right now.

For carrying, she'll need to figure that out. I have 2 options for myself. I carry in a kydex IWB holster when I am out and about. But sometimes I use my cancan concealment (picture a very wide belt that snaps around your waist) this usually goes on before my pants. I only wear it in days I don't wear jeans. That way I don't have to worry about how to support the kydex holster. When I wear my cancan I can fit 3 guns and a few mags. I choose to only carry 2 (my 26 and my 29) and then 2 extra mags for both of them. It's comfortable and once I'm fully dressed you'd never know I was carrying anything. If you wife has any other questions feel free to ask! Again, recoil is going to probably be her issue, for me, I discovered I highly disliked revolvers when I started. That was due to grip and recoil issues. Good luck!
