    Wife took the plunge

    my wife finnally took her CHL class this weekend. she was suprised in how interesting the class was and how fun the range part was. I wanted her to qualify with my G23 instead of her 38 snubby, so she can carry either. Now she wants her own glock. Oh well, at least she is showing interest in handguns now.

    Thats great!! Nothing wrong with the Wife shoot'n makes life a little smoother. My Wife had never shot before she met me, taught her to shoot now she shoots in IDPA and the local defensive pistol matches and loves it. It also gives her the ability to defend herself, that was the main goal anyway.

    Way to go! There's nothing quiet like the love that blossoms among the gunpowder.

    Me and my wife took the same CCW Course together, But the Poopee of it that the instructor did not like her Colt Defender that she has, So the instructor let her use his gun which was a Wilson Combat Tactical Elite in .45 ACP I was Jealous!! So now she wants a Wilson!! also we reload our ammo together with our 2 boys! but good job with your wife and her CCW!!

    Congratulations! I wish I could get my wife interested. She won't go near them.

    Congratulations. My wife and I shoot together and I finally convinced her to get her carry permit a couple of years ago. No when we travel, I know my back will be well taken care of.

    Congratulations! It's always great to have another woman on the team! Just make sure you buy her ANYTHING she wants, OK?
