But she said that she would only carry a 22 mag because she wanted something super light, but with low recoil. I was just glad that she carried. I was at a gun store and saw a stainless compact 1911 with crimson trace grips. I also saw the 22 mag J-frame. She knew I wanted the 1911. I had been searching for one. She told me to buy the 1911. I chose to buy her gun instead. The 1911 was used. They were about the same price. The next day she insisted I go back and buy the 1911. It was gone. She has been reminding me that she owes me a gun ever since.
My DW is very much the same way! We were out yesterday(I marched in a local Memorial Day Parade, then we took a drive East towards the New Mexico Border (the towns of Strawberry, Pine, and Payson Az.) didn't get to shoot at the outdoor range, but went to two Fairs, (saw a great buncha Old time steam engines too!) and we went Into a small local Gun shop, DW saw the Single action .22 she wanted(she already has a .22 Mag. for back up a Ruger LCR,) and I saw a used Kel-Tec .22 Mag Auto(new It's going for well over a Grand here!) for $750, but her single action was considerably less, so thats what we brought home...we did finally get enough ammo for us to take the Class next month! Found .38 158 Gr LRN's for $20 a Box! she got 200 Rds!, I saw the Remington Ball for $21 a Box(still a far cry from the $13 a box for PMC Bronze I was paying last Year!) and scored 200 more,..plus 2 boxes of Hornady Critical def. in .9mm...when we get home she thanks me profusely and says " I know we needed the Ammo for the class. I was willing to not get the single action.." I said " it's Ok,..next month Will be my turn!" Her regular carry is the .38 LCR...
