RE: Time to gun shop...
Anjele - Do you have a gun range close by where you can try a few weapons out? The .357, .40 are pretty hefty rounds, the usually stop the problem and Glock makes both in a smaller frame but if you're uncomfortable with the caliber it really isn't good.

The .380 should be easy to handle and will take care of the average issue.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

You don't need deadly, you just need get the fuck outta my face motherfucker. Tazers and pepper spray will both do that. Girly's got a shitload of Mossberg shotguns for home defense but I got zero handguns. Would've offed myself long ago if I had handguns. I don't need them. ...

RE: Time to gun shop...
Thanks for the suggestions, and yes, there are gun ranges nearby that we are going to try to get to in the next couple weeks. We know of one that is also a gun store and they do rent guns to try out. However, not the place to buy, just the place to try.

Have actually looked at a Walther, as well as some others and searched the Interwebz for pages regarding handguns for women.

Damn, our area used to be pretty safe for being so close to Dallas.

How would carrying a gun have helped you in dealing with this asshole? It wasn't a life-threatening situation, so even if he saw your gun, he'd know you couldn't use it.

Not being critical. I genuinely don't understand.

I couldn't see into the back windows to see if anyone else was in the SUV. Since he purposely blocked me in when I asked him if he would move so I could get out, that was an aggressive move. Then he made a phone call...to who? His helpers on the other side of the parking lot?

With a gun, I would have done the same thing in that situation, I'd call 911. However if I had been approached...seemed he was trying to pin me there, why, I don't know but I don't think it was for a chat...NO, he doesn't know I wouldn't have used it. Alone, at night, pinned in purposely...if approached, I would shoot.

And here in Texas, you are really a dumb ass if you think someone that points a gun at you won't shoot. Male or female.

I didn't survive cancer to be accosted by some asshole.

Oh, and I am a Criminal Justice major, as well as an Army veteran...tougher than I look...mentally, not physically thanks in part to the cancer.

Don't see your question as a criticism...just looking for clarity...fair enough.

Sounds like you need a ruger 22.

Just remember the golden rule, 2 in the chest and 1 in the head.
You can be in and out in 10seconds and nobody would ever know you were there.
Then simply drive along the motorway out of state and throw the gun parts in rivers along the way.

Oh and don't forget to file down the rifling and file off the serial numbers.

Haha...that what I had when I lived in Arizona and commuted through the desert at night Muffs. I think I want bigger, better, badder bullets.

Bigger, better, badder you say?

Well I wouldn't recommend it, you'd draw a lot of attention to yourself which kinda defeats the purpose of hitwomen, but okay let me think.

Hmmm, perhaps a .357?

Loud, poweful as fuck, pure badass.

Nah, to much kick.

Glock?

Nah, to common and boring.

I got it!

What you need is the greatest handgun ever made, the m1911.
Sexy, got a bit power behind it, pure classic.

Someone giving you trouble just pull that bad boy out, spit out your chewing tobacco and say "They gave me this in the war, it's killed over 50 nazi's so it's used to killing scumbags and will have no problem killing you. Now back the fuck up bitch!"

Bitches would be running for miles from you, trust me.
