A few months ago i started a thread about my wife wanting her own handgun. I threw out some suggestions but she didnt really know what she wanted. A couple of weeks ago she stated that she really liked my 1911 and wanted to shoot it because its sexy and she is now interested in wanting one. I took her out a few hours ago and let her shoot a few mags through mine. Afterwards she told me that she definately wants a 1911 and wanted to keep shooting it. I am pretty proud of her to say the least, all it took was a few shots and she was hooked. She is wanting a commander size .45,so during tax season we are going 1911 shopping and i cant wait.
