Guns For Girls: It's amazing how many men write to me asking what kind of gun, or telling me what kind of gun they should get for their girlfriend, wife, sister, mother ..... whoever; all without ever consulting the woman or girl. I also have women ask me to (impossibly) recommend a gun for them without knowing them. This article sheds some light on these dilemmas.

Which Gun Should I Buy?: The eternal question today by people who cannot decide what to prioritize or what to buy in the monstrous maze of available handguns today and among the monstrous maze of goofy, non essential information they think they must have before purchasing a gun for self defense.
