    Wife picked a S&W 638!

    Finally got my wife to the gun store, only two years after she got her license!. She settled on the 638 after handling every gun in the store. I tried my best not to give any input, but I did slip a couple in here and there. I've got to say I'm very pleased with her purchase, it's no 1911 in 45acp, but it's not my gun anyway.

    It's good that you let her get what she wanted, she'll use it more that way!

    Nice! She picked out a good one

    ahem; where's the pics? Just because it's her's, that doesn't mean that you can get away with not posting pics

    Your wife will be much happier with something that SHE has picked out. Nice choice!

    The 638 is possibly the best carry revolver ever made. In side-by-side testing with similar models (exposed hammer, DAO, etc.) it is more accurate and points well to shoot. It's light, easy to conceal, and packs a punch. If I get another revolver for carry, this one's at the top of the list. She made a really great choice.

    Cool

    I had a 638 as a backup gun for several years until my wife found out how much she liked it. Now I have a Diamondback .380 and she has the 638 in a Coronado Leather Purse.

    I have the heavier cousin, the 649 , but I agree your wife made a wise decision. Now start setting aside range time and get a couple thousands rounds through the 638 and be sure to post a range report.
