My beautiful wife of nearly 45 years just likes to shoot period. I bought her a .22 rifle our first Christmas together. She carries a SIG P238 or M&P 9C, but is comfortable with .22 shorts to .45 ACP or LCs. She out-shoots both me and her LEO son with any handgun--but then so does my 14 year old grand daughter. Not bad until she does it at the range in front of other "professionals" friends.
Sunday, we were at the our range with several kids and grand kids and she shot a new Springfield Armory 1911 loaded SS in 9 MM and I may have to give it to her. She has shot the Colt automatics all these years, and this is the first one she called pretty. In our family shooting is a family thing and sometimes she is the one to suggest we call the kids and meet over at the farm to shoot. I thank God for this woman every day.
