The ladies do have a way of laying claim to their hearts desire...don't they!

Bet it will help with control.

You're a lucky man, when the wife WANTS a gun.
Even luckier if she enjoys going to the range with you.

Maybe you can be glad that she enjoys any kind of shooting!
Mine has said that her arms are too weak to hold up a lightweight .22 Savage rifle.

Has your wife watched the Youtube Channel of "Brandon 401401" with his wife Kirsty, a really good fellow shooter?

She might really like a young lady demonstrate CCW holsters and rifles via "Faliaphotography", on her Y. Channel.
One place she keeps a concealed holster -while sitting down- will make you blush.:o

My wife likes her steak pink, her coffee light, her chocolate dark and her guns black. Her way of saying hands off is to hand over her carry license to the sale person and complete the form 4473 herself. Lordy I do love that woman!

My wife about a week ago over breakfast said I had a dream that you melted my witness and made a new gun I did not like. I replied the witness is mine she replied not anymore.Guess next month or so I will be looking for a new 45.

I agree. That's super cool.
I have a good combination as well. My wife like to go to the range occasionally, so most of the time I have the range to myself, and every now and then, she goes along. You need both sometimes.

Congrats... mines whole reason for the Glock was so she could do her CHL test. Its been a huge milestone in this house as she has never liked Semi's and preferred revolvers. However She didnt want to be limited to a revolver when taking her CHL.. (TX is retarded in that aspect)
It finally sunk in that the big guns are actually easier to shoot than the lil ones. Its all good. she can add whatever color accessories to the guns as shes been a vast improvement over the previous one.

Georgia is a "must issue" state and has no training requirements to get the license. If they can find no reason not to issue, they are compelled to issue. We've taken a number of courses voluntarily and all were quite good to one degree or another. The best by far was sponsored by our county's sheriff's department and included a line coach for each shooter one-on-one as it were. Morning session was laws and regs; afternoon was shooting.

As far as color goes, that's her choice not mine. But the last three pistols she bought all have polished stainless steel slides (Ruger SR guns) so she is somewhat flexible. Still likes a certain amount of "bling" I guess.

My wife did that with a stainless 1911 and a sig p238. Poor man. She is looking for pink ak47 stocks. I told her they don't make em

For clarification purposes regarding the CHL process in TX, you aren't limited to a revolver for getting a CHL. If you qualify with a revolver during the shooting portion of the CHL process you get a license to carry a revolver. If you qualify with a semi auto you get licensed to carry either a pistol or a revolver. My wife loves shooting her Ruger GP 100, but she took her CHL with my STI Guardian so she would be licensed to carry either.

Well, if I had a RTF2 with fish gills...I'd be the same way.:D

I bought m wife a Taurus 85 Ultralight for a wedding present in 1999.
She was displeased because it wasn't jewelry, and it had rubber grips.
She wanted rosewood boot grips. :rolleyes:
I tried to explain that the rosewood boot grips would be less comfortable to shoot.
Ended up buying her a set of rosewood grips and selling the rubber grips, just to shut her up.
That worked until the first range trip.
Turns out I was right.:what:
This year, she decided she needed some Hogue rubber grips. So I got her a set.
She wasn't happy with them, because they were black and not pink.
I told her, "It's a self defense, not an effing fashion statement. You need to get your mind right."
She was not to be dissuaded.
I got her a set of pink Hogue dead snake grips for Valentine's day, and now she's happy.
Go figure.

She had me buy her a Kel-Tec P3AT, in 1995. Once we got home, she changed her mind and gave it to me.
Great, just what I wanted. A .380 mouse gun with a 1.5 finger grip.:rolleyes:

I put a pocket clip on it and have actually decided that I like it. It's a great last ditch "onion field insurance" gun. Not the most accurate, nor most fun to shoot, but as a "get off me" gun to keep me from being killed, it's not bad.

If I can ever get my hands on a Ruger SR45, she's let me know that she'll lay claim to my SR9. :(

Hilarious! Yes, I would say your assumption is a safe bet. :D
