My immediate question to her is “Ummm………everything OK?”. She responded that she had heard some noises outside and wanted to have protection beside her just in case.
That’s my girl. I taught her that, and feel a little pride.
I also like the Serpa holster for this role, no accidental touch of the trigger (the gun is hot). It’s safe, but ready to go.
It’s reassuring that if there really was a dangerous problem, she at least has a fighting chance. With a full sized .40 cal., maybe a little more.
