Yeah, I seem to have a few issues though. I now have two 1911s and they are both Colts. And I own 4 other handguns that are all Walthers. It seems I may have a preference or possibly mental disease. The only one I bought purely because it is a Walther is my PPK. My old man has always wanted to shoot one so I got one for father and son range days. The others all just felt really good to me, and so far have shot incredibly well.

Nice! I have a PP in 32,..Had a PPK in 380 that I should have never sold,..but It was the victim of a divorce..Love the New Stainless in 22LR!
3 of my 4 1911's are Colt's. Nothing wrong with that at all. My wife says I have "magazine" disease! Too many spare Mags for the Auto's and too many Printed Gun Magazines. Too Bad I did a sub. to Shotgun News, part of the "G&A" empire...

The 9 mm. I've got a nice Colt Wiley Clapp if I feel the need to carry a round with more oomph. Plus I don't reload yet, and shooting some 9mm at the range will help keep Mrs CardiacColt from killing me.

I would suggest a caliber that you would find that you could survive being shot by............lol

But seriously I would let your wife pick her own fire arm. It's like someone else picking the firearm you carry for you.

He and I are working together to find a perfect firearm for me. He just enjoys the research part more than I do.

I've said before, in this thread, I would never pick a firearm for my wife.

It CAN work, but I'm not sure the solution is for everybody....
My wife fell in love with my Bushmaster....so I "chose" that gun for her !
