Default Brought Wife to pick out my next Handgun

Went to the Store today to let wife pick out my next handgun. Much to my surprise and enjoyment she picked this little number out.



Kimber Ultra Carry II. I think I got a good deal,, out the door for $639.00

Sorry for the crappy Phone pictures.

Very nice. You have a smart wife.

No, it's for me. Let her pick it out and be part of the process and not get mad when I bring home new guns. I was going to get whatever she picked out. I am lucky she has good taste.

Even if it was pink w/ a flower design?
You're very lucky she has good taste & class.

If I tried something like that my wife would pick a .25ACP w/ pink pearl grips and some kind of flower design on it.

I knew it wouldn't be Pink, she hates pink. And She doesn't like the Revolvers. So, I was feeling good about it. Didn't think she would go Kimber.

What a beaut! Make sure you take good care (as I'm sure you will). You know how 1911s have to be pampered

PAMPERED?

Run her hard and put her up wet!

NEVER pamper a new weapon! That just postpones mfg defects from showing up and will bite you later down the road.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
