Default Bought my wife this pistol:

Any thoughts? It was a great deal and it feels nice. Not too light(she doesn't like feather weight guns) and it's rated for +P. Is this a cool wife gun or what? I love it! She hasn't seen it yet. It's a surprise so don't tell her.

I've shot them and they can be a bit snappy as can any other light weight, short barrelled 38. If it's reliable for you I think she'll be happy. I got my wife a Ruger SP101 and she hardly let's me shoot it!!

She loves it and has already been grilling as to why I'm being so nice. In 7 years I haven't bought her a gun, why now?

She went to Charleston for an overnighter and had to take my .25.
Made me feel bad because as cool as it is I still wouldn't trust my life to it. It makes a good back up but as a primary it left me feeling she wasn't protected as she deserved to be. So I got her a firearm that has a good reputation and will in all likelihood give her 5 guaranteed shots if she needs them. It is obvious just from holding it and playing with it unloaded that it is better than the S&W J-frame I had when we met. She liked it but it was from the 60s and was pretty shot out. I couldn't hit a 2 liter bottle at 25 feet with it. This pistol is NIB and should be far more accurate hopefully to 15 yards.

AAhh, That's nice. But Mother's Day was last month. What are you thinking about buying for yourself?

An all original, numbers matching Colt 1911 made in 1918.
And a VAN!!! A man van, not one of those fake ones that women drive their kids in. I'm talking an ECONOLINE!

Nice looking little fella you got there. What is on my mind though is where did you get the sticker on your gun safe? I want one bad.
