I would have told them to pound sand.

But then, im 45 and ill say anything lol.

Welcome to the forum, I hope you find the gun you like.

My gf enjoys her Bersa Thunder CC 380, hates her Taurus ankle biter, likes to shoot 1911's but doesn't want to carry a big log like that.

Welcome.
You've been given some good advice already. Check http://www.corneredcat.com/ for tips on picking out & carrying a handgun from a woman's perspective.
A wayfarer should not walk unarmed,
But have his weapons to hand:
He knows not when he may need a spear,
Or what menace meet on the road.

+1 on the Cornered Cat! You can also find her on facebook and her book is superb as well. Much of the book and website can apply to everyone as well, not just women.

Welcome!! From another middle aged suburban mom who shoots:)

In addition to The Cornered Cat, please check out The Well Armed Woman. Both are excellent resources for female shooters and offer great advice on concealed carry.
"Awesome" is code word for CC in my house. Cuts down on the kids asking, loudly, in public, if I am in possession of anything that goes bang.

Your description of how you and your Dad shot together is dead on with thousands if not millions of us out here. I have done the same with my oldest daughter not far south of where you first shot. Welcome to Ohioans for Conceal Carry. This is an awesome site and you will learn tons. I own both a 45 ACP and a 380 for carry. I am not a real big guy so I end up shooting the 380 more accurate and therfore end up carrying it more.
