    A week or so ago I showed off a K-22 my wife spotted, and then talked me into getting. A few days ago, it was "her turn."

    "What's that?" as always was the question that started it all. "That" was a Smith and Wesson Model 317, Air Lite, Lady Smith, in 22 LR. Man, this is a LIGHT gun. Frame and cylinder are both aluminum. The barrel is aluminum with a steel insert. It's so light it should float off if it's not tied down. I don't think it had been fired, outside of the factory, but of course I can't prove that. It came in a really nice "leather" presentation case, with one of those clamp type trigger locks. Oh, I should have pointed out, it's an eight shooter.

    I don't know how much she'll shoot it, to tell the truth we neither one shoot all that much anymore, but she likes "her" guns. :)

    You know that one's hers, right? She just duped you into spending "your" gun money on it. ;)

    My wife is that way with a S&W 67-1 I gave her for Mother's Day a few years back. It was a retired police issue that I restored and give it to her, it's a great shooter...and she's a butt about me taking it out. It's her bedside and she never shoots the thing, every time I want to take it out, I get this "nope" look...

    Are you at least allowed to borrow her guns? Can you bring them to the range?

    If you're lucky she will let you buy the ammo for it too. And a holster.:D

    Got both, but it will never see the inside of a holster. Only one of my guns is ever holstered, and that's my Shield. The others ride in a range bag only. :D

    Nice little .22 for the missus! Bought this one for my wife some years back.

    I have always had a sweet spot in my heart for lightweight snubby Smith 22 revolvers. My two closest to yours are both Smith revolvers in model 43c. One always rides in my pocket.

    My child-bride and youngest daughter each also have a 43c.

    You done good, CajunBass.

    That's a nice looking little revolver. I think they run about 11 ounces.

    My wife's car has been parked in the barn for 3 weeks as winter conditions preclude her driving here in Michigan. I've told her many times that a car cannot be left parked for too long as it will deteriorate and amass problems because it is not being exercised. The same goes for her pistol and it needs to be loosened up every so often. After asking her if she wants to go to the range, she will often say no and ask me to keep her pistol in condition by shooting it. Yes dear! :)

    If she is like my wife, she will let you clean it for her.
