A good friend of mine lives in a neighborhood where recently there have been several sexual assaults. She is considered by everyone I know extremely attractive, lives by herself, and the area around her home isn't exactly well lit. I have her partially convinced to get a firearm for SD/HD... the only thing is until she gets her own I'm not sure what to lend her. For various reasons I've narrowed it down to my Hi-Point .45 pistol, and the 4095 carbine. I think the carbine would be easier for her to shoot (she's never shot a gun before; me taking her to the range will be her first time), as well as aim (the red dot scope is idiot proof). On the other hand, the pistol is definitely easier to maneuver around inside a confined space... right now I'm thinking of the 4095, but I'm open to suggestions. P.S. Ideally I'd get her a shotgun, but unfortunately my funds aren't up to that at the moment. I know a handgun isn't really an ideal HD gun, and while better a carbine still isn't as good as a shotgun, but right now I have limited guns and options. P.P.S. The reason she isn't buying a firearm herself is she doesn't really see the need... she did agree to possibly let me lend her one though. Thus the dilemma. She's not anti... just not pro either.
