If I may put my two cents in here. My gf hated guns before we got together, and understandably so. Her exhusband played Russian roulette with her for about two hours with a revolver. He was heavily intoxicated, which oddly enough is what saved her. He forgot to load the one round needed to "properly play". Long story short, she now likes to go shooting and has shot my LCP, G24 and G23. Patience and understanding was the key to me changing her opinion of firearms. Would she actually pull the trigger in a defensive situation, I don't know. It's hard to speculate on such, but at least I now know she is comfortable with firearms in the home.
