Since Erin Burnett had a story last night on buying guns as Christmas presents I must fess up. I bought my wife a hand gun for Christmas. I told her my Christmas present idea a few days before Thanksgiving. My wife was enthusiastic. My son just rolled his eyes.
My wife started the process by calling one of her friends who is a gun enthusiast for advice. About a week later we went to a local gun store. The store has a gun range and instructors. After about two hours of asking questions and trying various handguns she settled on the Beretta M9. Since we are novices they highly recommended they we go through a training course. As part of the deal they gave us a couple of coupons for time on the range. She was happy.
Tonight we are going to the handgun training course at the gun store. This should be fun.
