    Big mistake!

    I took my wife to Sportsmans Warehouse today to look at a CC piece. I had the choice made for her, it was to be a Bersa .380, a Taurus PT111, or a Kahr CW9 (all under $350 and guns that I could see myself carrying of course). Unbeknownst to me, all of these guns were ugly! Then I blew it...I asked her which one was "pretty". She then asked to hold a Smith & Wesson "Lady Smith" @ $660!!! She loved it, and I am $1000 away from my next gun because she wants hers first.

    Take a lesson from this folks, its a double edged sword to encourage the better half to CC. There will be one more weapon in the house, but not in my holster. God bless, HOLYROLLER.

    That's easily the best $660 you've ever spent. And a damn fine choice I'll add. Your wife has good taste.

    That's for sure. I'd give my (insert designated appendage of your choice here) to get my wife to just go plinking with .22s. You're pretty lucky if you ask me - just spend more on your next one!

    Talking The Lady Smith Is A Nice Revolver

    Now...get your Wife registered on the forum and we'll talk her into a nice set of Laser Grips and full coverage hand done Scroll ENGRAVING then you'll really be further away from your next purchase.

    Remind me of the scene in The Three Amigos where the cantina thug taunts the killer: "I said where'd you get that purty little gun?" and winds up dead.

    I hope she gets her Ladysmith and enjoys it. There's nothing more dangerous than a well-trained woman who's proficient with a pretty gun.

    Pretty guns are the best kind!

    I'm looking all over the place for grips with flowers in them.

    My husband thinks I'm crazy, but cute little pink or red flowers with a little humming bird would be just adorable on my Kimber!

    my wife always likes the shiny ones. i think i'll get her something nickel plated - she'd be overjoyed. :) the only thing is, i want to make sure she can shoot it and its comfortable first...otherwise it would just be eye candy.

    My wife and I are picking up her Glock 21SF at lunch today. After shooting one mag at the range, she declared, "I want one!"

    Same thing happened with my G26.

    I feel your "Pain."

    Cheers.

    Any choice for a female (by a male conterpart) is pure speculation;
    cuz she is subject to change her mind again and again~! Take it
    from one who knows- women are unpredictable- on most of lifes
