    I took my wife shooting today. She loved my Taurus .22 revolver. Later in the afternoon we were hanging out with her father and she was telling him about our shooting trip. Suddenly, she began to refer to the revolver as hers.:what: Oh well! She had the best time she has ever had while shooting and wants to shoot more often now. I guess one little revolver is a price worth paying for those kind of returns.

    By the way she enjoyed shooting my 3.5" magnum 12 gauge. She was proud of having done that, but only wanted to shoot it once.

    just be thankful it was only a .22 and not a more expensive gun. My last girlfriend always wanted to shoot the most expensive guns like my Marlin n1894 in .44 magnum. Not cheap to shoot.

    I wish my wife went for the less expensive models. She bought a Sig, and now wants a Wild West take-down Marlin Guide gun (Alaskan Copilot). She has a knack for picking the expensive guns. Now she's lusting for my Mateba.

    Yeah, I have this bad/good feeling it is only going to get more expensive from here.

    By "once" do you mean one session, one full mag tube or just one round (i.e. one pull of the trigger)?

    Not criticizing, just seems like one round would not be enough to know whether you enjoy shooting something, or, if you did enjoy it, why not shoot a second, third or fourth round? Just curious. Also it would be interesting to know what she shot, a 2.5 birdshot round or a 3.5 magnum slug, or (if more than one round) what kind of mix.

    FWIW I can say I've shot a Kimber 1911 once, but I don't mean that I only pulled the trigger one time. It was one range session, involving several mags that were emptied under my control. Enough so that I can say I truly experienced that firearm enough to know whether I enjoyed how it handled, how it shot, etc.

    I have never had a girlfriend who actually took an interest to shooting as to want to get a gun herself.

    The last two could care less lol, but as usuall I will do what I want, and the last thing that I'll let happen is a woman get in the way of the things I enjoy ;)

    The girl I'm with right now, has shown some defenite interest in shooting, but not in guns in general. I showed her once my small humble collection as she asked and was curious, but thats the only time she inquired.

    Too bad.. I'd love to be with a chick that had or wanted her own collection

    bruss, he did say 3.5" magnum. I've shot 3" magnum loads and I'll tell you that they are NOT fun to shoot. The 3.5 has even more of a kick, and its quite a challenge for someone who has or hasn't shot before. Enough to say that doing it once is defenitly enough, even one shot.

    Dude, thats a problem a lot of guys would like to have. What your failing to realize is that in the long run, this means more guns for YOU!!! Let me break this down for you:

    You: Look honey, I got us a matched pair of (insert gun preferred here).
    Her: Oh, look how sweet you are! I love that you want to spend time with me, and that was a very nice gesture. I love you.
    You: Sweet.

    And the best part is, you can do this again, and again, and again with little to no repercussion. Added to that, if you can convert her into a hardcore gunny, you will then be able to buy guns for yourself and use real, sound gunny logic:

    You: Well, I know I have 13 Glock 17's, but this one was just such a great deal, I couldn't pass it up. Plus, this one has stippling. Do you see? Stippling....
    Her: Makes sense to me.
    You: Sweet.

    Additionally, you can buy her guns that you know she will like, specifically for her, with the assurance that you will be able to shoot them pretty much whenever you want:

    You: Looky, I bought you that 1911 you have been drooling over. A special gift for my special lady!
    Her: (Through sobs of joy) Your the greatest husband ever.
    You: I know. Your not to shabby yourself, toots.

    See what you have done, dude? You have set yourself up for life. Thats awesome beyond recompense. I also assure you that my scenarios are completely realistic and accurate.

    God Bless Your Wife, and America.

    My wife did that with a S&W 64 and my Marlin 60. At least she likes shooting. And, she has demanded the next firearm purchase be hers. She wants a S&W M&P 40. At least she likes to shoot.

    It's happened to me twice! First my old rather beat up K.22 that she still likes. I was OK with that and just glad to have her shooting with me occasionally. Then she wanted to try a bigger gun. I though a .357 might be a bit too much for her but she just had to try it. My model 66 is now hers' when telling others about shooting with me!

    since she took one of your guns, that gives you an excuse to buy something else :)

    Good thinking Timbo. :D

    The last I saw of "my" new Kimber Eclipse was on the night when I picked it up from the shop. My wife picked it up, admired it, then headed for the bedroom (still holding the Kimber) saying, "We'll have to go shooting MY new pistol real soon." :eek:

    At least she has good taste...

    Don't feel bad, a few years ago my wife did the same with my 2 1/2" S&W 66. I finally got it back after she got tired of it. She said it was to big and heavy for her. Be glad she enjoys it as much as you. Now I have to find something small for my wife.

    Hehehehe......

    I'm in the process of taking as my own, my hubby's Bushmaster AR-15! I love that rifle...... This week I also put some rounds through the .44 Super Redhawk, and I think I'll have that one too!!! :D

    Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't have my own. I have my beloved CZ P-01 9mm, and a .22 rifle, but a girl needs variety!!! ;)

    He said the shotgun was a 3.5 magnum shotgun. That gives one no idea of what was fired in that shotgun. I was interested in what was actually fired in the shotgun, not so much the shotgun itself.

    You guys don't know how lucky you are. Other people have got wives that make them choose between their marriage and their guns, but you've got wives that want your guns for themselves because they love them.

    I gotta be that lucky when I get married.

    Good point. When I said she enjoyed it, I mean that it gave her a thrill to shoot a 3.5" #4 (I think.) bird shot. She fired a 2.75" target load and then fired the 3.5" magnum shell. She has shot my other twelve gauges many times and enjoys them. The 3.5" round was sort of a "Cool. I did it, but I do not really want to do that again." Mostly she is looking forward to bragging to my father. It was just a moment of fun.

    I think you're missing the point. We're not complaining.

    We're bragging. :D

    I have had my wife take interest in several of my firearms and claim that they are hers at various times during our almost 30 years of marriage.

    I consider myself lucky, much more than those who have to live with anti-gun shrews.
