    Hi Mas,

    If someone was legally prescribed a narcotic for pain, and is a legal ccw holder could that be held against them in a self defense case ?

    Also my wife want's to get her carry license but she prefers to shoot rimfire only . Do you think the S&W Mp in 22 mag would be a good gun for her to start with as a purse gun?

    As to your first question, yes it could. You'd need to bring everyone from your doc who prescribed and monitored you, to folks you work with every day to testify that they have not seen any negative effect on your judgment since you've been taking the meds. And, of course, you'll have to be ruthlessly honest with yourself about that part of it.

    While most of us here on GT would want something more substantial than a .22 Magnum, we'd rather your wife carry that than nothing at all. For some folks who are particularly sensitive to recoil, compromises have to be made.
