I buy guns as the opportunity presents it's self. I let my wife have first choice of the weapons in the house. I am a big guy. I wear jeans or uniform pants 99% of the time. She needs a weapon to suit the way she is dressed on a given day.

You might find a similar plan for your family. Quite often when my wife gets interested in a large gun after a few days of carrying one she loses interest. She has no interest in going to a public range. We have plenty of space here on the property to shoot. When she does shoot off the property it's several women at someones house. She doesn't appreciate the constant instruction she receives at public ranges. Especially when the so called "instructor" is younger than the number of years she has been shooting.

Thanks for all the support everyone. Me and my wife shoot together most of the time. We took your Cpl class together and now she wants a .45 what is the world coming to? I will either be getting her a new carry weapon or I will be carrying two 1911's.

Now you've done it.
Just be glad you didn't rent a Wilson or a Nighthawk.

JD, sent you a PM. My wife shoots a 45 fairly well but is small framed (well used to be--LOL) and wants a S&W snubbie like the one I gave our daughter. A bit reluctant as she loses things all the time. Thinking about that little Keltec P3. If/when she loses it I will not be crying. She wanted my Sig 232 but told her that was not going to happen.

I have no problem getting high dollar items if shes gonna carry it. I would gladly spend the $2500+ on a firearm and hope she never uses it except for putting holes in paper. Only if she carries it and I know she would. We will be looking closer at 1911's really soon and I dont know how much damage were gonna do but I know we will love every minute of it.

Funny story about a nighthawk... I took my anti gun wife to the range with my brother and I and she decided to give it a try after just watching for awhile. So I rented her a .22 pistol to shoot. She shoots it once, looks at me and says "that's it?" I just about died laughing. So then she stepped up to my brothers beretta 92fs shot it a few times and decided to "borrow" the nighthawk I rented to decide if that was the gun I really wanted to buy. Well about 100 rounds later my wife went home with a nighthawk. She loves it to death and goes to ladies night at the local range twice a week. Shoot she even had me build an ar for her. That's the monster I created.

Do your wallet a favor and check out a few SIG 1911s. Quite close in finish to a TRP and they start at about $750. Upgraded sights, etc., and your looking at about $1000. Very good CS and a lifetime warranty.
