That's when you say "Yes dear, I'll take care of it right away." Then kiss her and head to the favorite GS. Oh, and you'll need some ammo, and a new holster too. And while you're out, just to be safe, you'll need some range time to be 'sure' you know how to operate it safely.

All in the name of being safe and keeping her happy of course.
When you come home with your new gun be sure to tell her it was on sale!

Just make sure she doesn't rely on the external safety entirely. Finger should stay off the trigger, muzzle should be pointed in a safe direction, even with the safety engaged.

Safeties, like all mechanical parts, can fail - and positive habits shouldn't be neglected!
Keep calm and carry.

Go buy another Glock. Then act shocked and exclaim, "well this one doesn't have it either".
Then state the policy of no return on weapons, jump up from table and say, " I'll be right back!"
Return to store and purchase a Kimber TLE II and order a couple Wilson Mags and a Miami Shoulder rig.

Then take her to her favorite restaurant or offer to cook (and clean up) her favorite meal- kiss her on the forehead while touching her arm and say" thank you for caring"
