I looked online and the Champion TRP seems very hard to find and considerably more expensive than the Operator.
I'm leaning 90/10 towards the champion operator, because of price and availability. I'm thinking it might be an a Christmas and birthday present to myself.

If I take her out again, it will be with a gun she bought. I don't own 22 anymore, but maybe that's what I should have started her with. She is 5'3" and 120#s, the girl before her was the measurements and she had a G22 and she liked my 45s.

Just for argument sake, should I have started shooting something smaller or just keep the guns away from her? I'm thinking keep them away from her, cause she is a girlie girl.
Teach her- SLOWLY

You calling her a girlie girl, but you're thinking about not telling her you bought it?

I take my testicles out of her purse when she's not looking, lol. Mine won't give me money for guns, but she did say she'd pay for half of my AR build, I think that's better than her going to the range with me.

If you're going halfsies...make sure you put some good glass on it.
Maybe something that rhymes with Trijicon.

She won't give you money? Is this her money or does she take your money? Think you might have bigger problems than hiding a gun purchase from her.

My money is mine and hers is hers. She just won't do it for guns, she thinks I have to many, at least I'm not collecting mistresses or porn. I have a hobby and she doesn't, that's not my fault. I should give her a hobby, like collecting ammo.
