Hello all, I recently moved out of my parents house and they are officially empty nesters. My parents own a large 2 story home and my father travels frequently (10-23 days a month). When i live at home I kept a H&K USP .40 in a safe in my room. With my mom now being alone at night she has become more vigilant in locking the doors and setting the alarm etc but she wants a gun in case the worst is upon her. She has no prior training or experience with firearms of any kind. She will get her CCW along with it for training purposes. For the most part the firearm would be a bedroom dresser type situation but she has expressed interest in carrying as well. My first hunch is to get her a glock 19, or a Springfield XD 9mm, but I'm not certain yet. Can anyone recommend a weapon that they purchased for a similar situation, also if you know of anyone in the Central Florida area that is good with novice shooters, i'd appreciate it!
