    Welcoming My Wife Into The Fold

    She did it! Some will remember the back-and-forth routine I went through with my wife after a close encounter with some would be drug thieves on the horse farm (her vet box is of great interest to certain members of the recreational drug using community in the horse industry). Fortunately, she has more brains than most, and didn't need a gun to sort that out. HOWEVER...

    Yesterday, she COMPLETELY suprised me by coming home with a box labelled "Kahr Arms"! At first, I thought I was spoiling a stocking stuffer surprise (hey...a guy can dream, can't he?), but it quickly became apparent by the look on her face that she had something different up her sleeve.

    For the last month, she's been taking lessons with a friend of mine (apparently, I'm an impatient when it comes to instruction of my spouse), and after three weeks of lessons, he helped her select a new weapon. She is taking the prerequisite classes for her permit to carry concealed, and I must say that I'm feeling a little left out! New gun, new classes...shiny new instructor....hmm...what do I have to offer?!! Fortunately, I'm as dashing, witty and debonaire as ever, so I needn't have worried (oh, yeah...The Kid has still got it). She swears she still loves me, but has a crush on her new .40 caliber baby.

    She probably won't have time to post much (she still calls all of us 'computer geeks' for participating in this forum...far too busy for trite discourse about firearms), but I'm going to FORCE her to register as a forum member. Please welcome Kara when she shows up!

    Here's a sneak of the new gun. I swear to all that is good...I must get one of these. While I'll never give up my Sig, this TINY gun is a beaut. WOW.

    I'll deny I said this if she asks any of you, but it is almost as sexy as she is.

    Congrats.

    My wife is waiting for the state to finish her paperwork so that she can pick up her permit. She already has the SP101 and the SmartCarry is on the way. She will probably never register on the forum, she thinks the time I spend on it is a waste of time. I ask her what is the difference, reading a newspaper, or reading the news on the computer?

    The difference, Mike, is that she's doing it her way. You're wrong, I'm wrong...obviously. Silly men!

    My only question Scot Van is what are you getting? She can't be the only one with a new baby.

    Congrats! I remember the post you're referring to! I even posted a response in that thread.

    I am very glad she is now one of the good guys.

    My best friends wife is a vet who has to take weekend calls at the clinic where she gets called in at all hours of the day or night for "emergencies" where she is the only one in the clinic. No other vets or office staff present.

    He has been working on her to get her ccw as well but hasn't had any luck as of yet!

    I'm glad your wife saw an apparent need. I know she is smart and relies on her wits and savey most of the time, but preparing for the worst is also showing her smarts as well!

    Good job and congrats to your wife!

    Yep, I remember the thread also. In fact I believe I suggested that if she didn't want a CCW to just carry a pair of Burdizzo's for the BG's

    I'm glad she chose the CCW, congratulations to both of you. My wife carries a 642, it makes me feel a lot better.

    Ummm, Scot. Isn't this sentence redundant? It includes "impatient AND "instruction of my spouse."

    It must be one of the things they learn in "wife school," along with how to give "The Look," and questions like "Honey, which earrings should I wear with this dress?"

    Hey Scot, I was a participant in the original thread. It doesn't surprise me that she went about the task in her OWN way. I'm just glad she got it done! Another Armed Belle of the Bluegrass...it makes me want to break-out into singing My Old Kentucky Home. The steel-framed Kahr is a great pick as well. Tell her we're all quite PROUD of her decision. And our prayers continue that she never has to use it.
