Many weapons are also objects of art and things of beauty... swords come to mind.

You had her gun picked out? No, no, no that's not right!
You meant to say....I researched some gun models for her to look at.
Now, take her to the range and let her run through some $$$ ammo with her new pretty gun!
I'm with LIMA! More flowers for the guns!
Shoulda showed her a 642 and saved $300...heh.
Glad she'll be carrying!

Can't see anything wrong with that! :)
I'm happy to see she at least has some interest and she has chosen a fine little pistolo there for herself. Always make the boss happy... that's my motto too!

<----My LT was unhappy that I did not have my PASS-Tag at that fire. But I found the body so he said he would overlook it. :)
I took a girlfriend to the range to let her try out a bunch of my pistols so she could get an idea of what she might want. Of course she liked the most expensive gun on the table, a Sig P220. She's not getting that one though. Might have something to do with that pistol stopping a home invasion at her house a couple of weeks ago tho.
The "Big Mistake" you made is seen here in bold:
You can never make a choice for them, at best (if you're lucky) you can make a choice with them.I took my wife to Sportsmans Warehouse today to look at a CC piece. I had the choice made for her
As such, you are now paying the price of having to wait to buy a gun that you want (a small price to pay actually) and don't be surprised if you have to pay that price a few more times before you get to go shopping for yourself!
Now the next step is to buy her lot's of ammo and take her to the range to enjoy (not to mention get acclimated to) her new gun!
Congrats on the new Smith.
My wife isn't worried about pretty. As long as .45 is written somewhere on the pistol her eyes get wide with a funny gleeful glint that sometimes makes me nervous. I bought an XD 9 to match my XD 45 for cheaper practice and for home defense for my wife. I took her to shoot it and she put a couple of mags through it and then quickly reached for my .45. They are both kept in the same lockbox next to the bed and there is no question in my mind which she will grab if needed.

Hey that's great! A fellow heathen Eastsider whose wifes pends his gun $. Terry at All American Arms on E. Sprague could have saved ya a few $$, but if your wife is like mine, the White Elephant and good old gun shops make her uncomfortable. That Sportsmans Warehouse is set up to make our ladies comfortable shopping there. Good for them and great choice by your wife. luteai

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
