You just have to have a good justification/reason for it. He wants to be sure you've thought it out before applying.
I can't think of a good enough reason that I think he would go for.
If I had what I thought was a good enough reason, I'd then have to get an appropriate handgun. What a shame that would be, huh?
Since I can't edit my first post I'll do it this way:
Now my wife has her own pistol permit and has two handguns of her own. We both intend to take a CCW class ($200.00 ea.) and then apply for our carry permits.
My wife is an NRA member and I soon will be a Benefactor Life member. We love shooting at the range together and each have appropriate carry weapons for when we get our CCW's.

Complicated. My wife's mind understands the need, but emotionally she does not want to think about it, does not want to go to the range or see it. Kind of like out of sight, out of mind. So I take the role of primary protector and I worry a little about when she is alone. And due to my work location policy, my frequent business flights, and Michigan law about churches, bars, etc, I can only legally carry about 30% of my standard work month. That will increase dramatically when I retire in a few years, and as we age, we will be targeted more, so I am slowly, respectfully working on my wife to warm up to the idea more.

With all the problems going on now my wife is supportive of my carrying. At 66 and 68 we are also in the target age for robbery/attack. When we go out and will be shopping she asked me if I am carrying before we leave the house. Her biggest concern is having a problem in a public bathroom.

Because of her arthritis she has problems handling my semi autos so I recently bought her a .32 Beretta Tomcat that she can handle. As soon as the new reduced fees go into effect in Texas she will get her LTC. She doesn't have a lot of experience with firearms but can soot any of my guns with fair accuracy including my Blackhawk and my 1911. Her Tomcat and my Colt .32 are both in condition 1 within her reach if I am not home.
