    wife takes my S&W model 60 357

    The wife and I go to our lgs Dec 24 and were looking at revolvers. She carries a 642 and loves it. So I talked her into letting me buy a used model 60=10 3" that looked like new. She told me I better carry it and not just leave it in the safe. Well this week she informs me that she wants it and it's hers not mine. Maybe I should get her a box of 357s to shoot in it instead of 38s and hope that she doesn't like it. On second thought I think I'll just let her keep it and that will give me an excuse to buy something else. It looks like this is the only disadvantage to having a wife that is into guns.

    From an online review of this gun:

    The first time I dropped cartridges into the cylinder, generic range ammunition I had never even heard of before, I knew it would fire. I bought some generic range stuff and a couple boxes of premium self defense feed – different bullet shapes, charges, even different case lengths – in .38 Special, .38 Special +p, and .357 Magnum, and it all fired without a single failure of any kind. I didn’t have to worry about bullet shapes or magazines that the gun didn’t like. There was no “break-in” period. No doubt, no concern, no need to run 200 rounds through the gun to make sure it worked… behold the beauty of the revolver
    That's just how it is.

    You're looking at the negative side. Look at the bright side. That means she likes them too and you can buy more. Some guys don't have that luxury and have to sneak a new purchase past the wife, or get the approval to purchase one.

    My wife (Pink Lady) likes them too. Therefore I (or... "we") get to buy all we can afford. I have a couple that are more or less "mine" and she has one the is "hers", but for the most part, all the rest of the guns are "ours".

    Why can't you "both" carry it. She has a 642 you said. Well, carry that when she carries the 60, or carry the 60 when she carries the 642.
    Tell her it's "our" gun, not yours or mine. "Lets buy one of these (fill in the blank with make model)"

    Most men forget to read the fine print on the marriage certificate, which states:

    "What is hers, is hers ... what is yours, is now hers."

    A wife that shares your love of firearms? I can think of a lot worse.

    I was just kidding about the disadvantage part. I really wanted It for her anyway. I have plenty to carry, my latest is a S&W SD9. She doesn't like it she thinks the recoil is to much compaired to her 642. I think that the 642 fits her hand better and she has more control over it than the SD9.

    I can think of LOTS of things worse than a wife who likes your guns. Consider it a special blessing from God.

    So go out and buy yourself a Ruger SP101 and call it even.

    "Lost" a premo Winchester M-1 Carbine the same way. But as said worse things can happen.

    I agree on the SP101 comment. If I didn't have so many other irons in the fire I'd have one myself.
