    Just wondering. It seems that there are plenty of good 1911's out there, but would you want your wife to take the Taurus?

    I don't even know your wife.
    Mine prefers S&W J & K frames.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    No, I want her to have something well made and dead nuts reliable produced by a top tier gun manufacturer. Especially when her life or mine could depend upon it,YMMV.

    No. She would sell it.

    If I were married I would put my trust in one for my wife. I trusted my life with one, and wouldn't mind having another one.

    The only reason I don't still have mine is I wanted a smaller carry weapon and sold my PT1911 to buy a SP101.

    I dunno. I mean, if the Taurus is just a work acquaintance, or an old buddy from school then I suppose I'd trust him.
    If he's taking her out to fancy dinners, probably not.

    No, she'd never let me use it.

    I voted yes if you want a cheap divorce. Can't think of a better firearm for her to have...

    She shot a Taurus once. She liked it a lot.

    Then I made a few derogatory comments about Taurus and now she wants a Walther.
