Get a dog first. If you want to explore firearms, take a course with an NRA instructor and get advice on what to buy. I prefer a 9MM semi-auto, but my wife prefers revolvers and has a Smith and Wesson in .38 Spl.

missymomof3, for your home security needs, a double-action revolver will fire every time you pull the trigger, no safety to thumb off, no need to pull back a hammer to fire. Snub barrel for the biggest noise and muzzle flash you can make, perhaps in .38 caliber. Feed it any of the popular home defense hollowpoints. By all means take advantage of any firearms safety training that is available locally. For your husband's hunting, I agree with the recommendation of a 12-gauge pump shotgun, preferably a Remington 870 variant, perhaps the Express model. Relatively inexpensive, utterly failproof, incredibily versatile, an infinite variety of extra barrels/chokes/ammo available, including reduced recoil and shot charge loads. A 20-gauge is almost as versatile, with less recoil.

Itz tha lauha anie it
IF you are a MAN and between 16 and 45 you are required by militia laws to have a gun and know how to use it accurately.
Those laws have never been undone so if you have a wife that "won't let you" have a gun, it is out of ignorance and fear of a lot of stuff. Keep all guns on "double safe".
and up out of reach of children but you can teach them to understand how dangerous they are just like a road is dangerous and can get them killed, do you spank to keep them out of the road or let them learn the hard way that it hurts when you get run over.
The stove/oven is dangerous too does your wife not allow a stove in the house?

you can hunt and kill deer with a shot gun using slug bullets instead of shot. In ohio I think it is the only gun allowed for deer? No rifles, smooth bore only for some reason. 20guage might work for that?

the brief that was sent to them was online for awhile but the CCW license issue is a scam that was done so some "lawmakers" could carry concealed in the state capitol from what I heard directly from a KYLRC guy.
One could fight a charge of carry concealed and win in court it would take a herculean stubbornness but on its face (prima facia means it has not been challenged)
the CCW "law" is no law at all and "void ab inito"
by self evident implication we have the right to life and to protect our life by "every awful implement of war". That is a individual right not a priveledge granted by government.

(by the way we only have a original 1792 and 1799 constitution for kentucky; the others are missing except for a typed copy of the 1850 it is on the states web page I think)

I own quite a few guns. I shot my first gun when I was four and they have been a part of my life ever since.

We lived out in the country (parents still live there) and yeah they have a couple of guns. I don't have one myself now because I don't really see the need for it but I'm glad that my parents do considering the rural area of KY they live in.
