Hey all, looking for sound advice. My wife and I plan to take our young daughter and dog out to the desert in SE Oregon this summer and I want to bring my pistol in case of the slim chance of an encounter with bad people. I never thought I needed a gun until she and I (prekids) did the same trip and a couple yahoos rolled into the campground that we'd had all to ourselves, miles from nowhere. They were ok, but I didn't want to have that worry again. So, I took some classes, picked up an XDm9 and started practicing once in a while. Yet my wife is so against bringing a weapon, she says she'd rather take separate trips. There's no way would allow her to head out there with our girl without me, but it seems stupid to have a last-ditch rescue device and leave it at home. I know its such a slim probability of trouble, but I couldn't live with myself if I was unable to protect them in a worst-case scenario. Of course if we got bad vibes from anybody, we would leave and avoid a confrontation, but if we got cornered, I'd want to be able to grab the pistol from under the seat and exercise deterrence or force. My offer to her would be to keep it locked in a Gunvault Nano under the seat unless we were threatened. Anybody have success on persuading a stubborn woman who thinks the world is full of only good people?
