    We had a couple test fire sessions with the new Baby Glock....I brought home a Glock 26 and set it on the table. I was just coming home from work and while I was changing clothes and getting cleaned up I hear cooing and snapping/clicking. From the other room I hear my Wife racking the slide, checking out the controls, etc.

    I smile quietly to myself...good she's getting familiar with something very different and unique to our house. Our first polymer pistol.

    By the time I get into the room she has field stripped and cleaned /lubed it (by the enclosed manual) and installed the beaver tail backstrap (one of 4 straps supplied!!) of *her* preference and is practicing with the unloaded pistol picking up sight picture and presenting the gun. We have been to the range twice now - she loves it. And last night it ends up on *her* nightstand! :eek: :banghead: Say's it the most comfortable pistol she has ever handled or shot right out of the box.

    She stole my Glock....:cuss: :D

    Anybody else have this happen?

    Yup, she has taken a couple of .22 rifles and 20 ga. Remington 870. However, she lets me shoot them if I ask nicely.

    My wife tried to steal my 1911 from me but that didn't get very far. Just means I have to get another one now, for her because well she said so.

    I got to own a Ruger LCR in .38 for about 30 minutes once. As soon as she saw it, she picked it up-done deal right there. Oh, well. Good carry piece for her AND she can shoot the heck out of it.

    Yea, it has happened twice. First, was my S&W Model 60-9. Got it tricked out like I wanted it and she said "I really like that." Translation: I get a new gun. :) Second was a few weeks ago, I brought home an NAA Black Widow. Walked in the house, she smiles and says "I really like that." Translation: I get a new gun. :) Now, we each have one. Having a wife who likes guns is great. Having one with the same taste in guns is priceless.

    ABSOLUTELY NOT !!! She can go buy her own, and has. A K22 6", a M631 4", a USFA 5 1/2" 44SPL, and a Winchester 9422. The easter bunny did bring her a HI-GRADE BR. Bl-22 one year. Her P22 was a T-total POS that she shot to pieces with 5M rounds or so. Her new Walther PP22 had 10M rounds put through it before I could hardly say ' holy smokes.'

    Springfield Range Officer, although admittedly what's mine is hers.

    She suggested that It had been too long since my last firearm purchase, mentioned I was talking about getting my first 1911, and went shopping with me.

    She then appropriated it as Her go-to choice, hasn't touched her Sigma since.

    Just happened, and the thing's still in the box. We'd been discussing a new HD shotgun, so I came home with an 870. Next day she's telling folks that I bought HER a new shotgun.

    I've told my wife that when she gets her permit in the mail I'll give her my SW model 36. She likes it because its shiny; nickel plated ya know.:cool: So, she didn't really steal it. I'm giving it to her.

    that still leaves me more than I carry at one time anyway.

    We'll, she isn't my wife (yet), but, my girlfriend has already claimed my Glock 19 as hers.... And with how well she shoots it you won't find me objecting to that :eek:

    HAHAHAHA!

    Yes, as a matter of fact!

    Eariler this year I had an opportunity to pick up a NIB Savage Mark II-F .22LR bolt action from a friend of my Division Head. All black synthetic stock. The guy had bought is a few months earlier, never shot it, and decided he didn't want it, so he sold it to me for a price I couldn't turn down.

    I took it home thinking to add it to my collection of .22 rifles so my wife and I would have enough to get all three of our kids shooting at the same time, with nobody being bored out of their skull waiting their turn or getting over anxious to be "first".

    Told my wife about it when I got home and she came out to the car to look at it when I opened the trunk. First words out of her mouth were "COOL! Is that for me?"


    For those of you who aren't married, the correct answer to that question is "Yes, it is!"

    ;)
