    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!!

    Looks like it should do fine. I got the Mrs. an LCR and I also can not touch it(The Elsie Arrr) now.

    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.

    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.

    Very nice, and much more practical than jewelry. :)

    Buy her a bunch of ammo & some nice ear protection so she can get some practice time in.

    Ya i love the 38 special my cousin had a shorty like that chambered in 38 special he just added some under the barrel I think it had some tac railing under if for a flash light or somthin. But truly I was raised shooting a 4 inch taurus everything under 38 seems kinda of underkill to me.

    I have that exact .38 for my pocket cannon, and I can't complain. Its light, effective, and is a great size for smaller hands. From a woman's perspective, that'll keep her happy.

    BTW - I want that sign!
