And it must be a reliable firearm.

Simple and Reliable, that’s it.

Used/surplus K frame (like a model 64)

Call it good.

Not house warming gifts as such, but I've helped arm two young women.

When my youngest daughter graduated from OSU my graduation present to her was a 9mm Stoeger Cougar, 3 extra 15 round magazines (5 total), 500 rounds of FMJ practice ammo, a box of HSTs, a mag. loader, a paddle holster, and a clamshell safe for her car.

A Charlottesville police officer acquaintance mentioned that she was thinking of getting a BUG so I asked where she would be shopping and ended up giving her a $200 gift certificate for that gun shop. Turned out that one of the clerks there was her pistol TO. She ended up getting a Glock 26 for her BUG.

Four boxes to be used in defense of liberty: soap, ballot, jury, ammo - use in that order.
If you aren't part of the solution, then you obviously weren't properly dissolved.
