    The twins.....not really

    Just bought these two for me and my wife, excellent preformance from both! Mine is the Sig P220 Combat and hers is a Kahr CW9 9mm. We are both new to hand guns and recently moved to OK and have applyed for our CCL. We are having a blast "pun intended" shooting together, my wife really enjoys it. I grew up shooting, rifles mostly, my wife is new for the most part, and is making me look bad, shes doing a whole lot better then I did when I first start shooting anything, and she did better the first day she shot her Kahr then I did with the Sig!

    I have noticed that when women begin to be interested in shooting, they are inherently better marksmen than us men are. Very strange. Not a good sign, I think

    Haha - ask dr_cmg about wives and shooting

    Yet another example there of the ladies being excellent shooters.

    Same here. When my wife and I got married, she had fired several kinds of long guns but never a hand gun. I had my Taurus PT-99 and the Taurus .357 revolver with a 6 inch barrel at the time. We went to the outdoor range where we lived and I shot pretty well in a effort to show to her how to hold the guns and the proper way to fire them.

    Then I gave them to her and she proceeded to tear a single hole about the size of my fist in the paper target with the PT-99 and shot a vary tight group with the revolver. She then asked me if she had done OK?!

    She is an amazing shot with seemingly what ever gun she picks up. She's never met a gun she couldn't shoot at least pretty well and most it looks like she has been shooting it for years after she is done. She's a true natural shot and it really makes me jealous sometimes.

    And whoever said it is right, God help us if the woman ever decide to take over completely. We won't stand a chance.

    By the way, you both made great choices for carry guns and I really like the look of that Sig. I like the green frames and dark earth colored frames.

    How true. Took the better-half to shoot sporting clays, she did better than me for many shots. Instructor says that many women don't have the "bad habits" or ego issues that men have when coming for instruction or for the first time.

    My sister's a natural shot as well, be it a handgun, rifle, or shotgun. She's already claimed my brother-in-law's Ruger Super Redhawk in .44 Mag as her own.

    Fired a Kahr CW9 last night at the range...

    Scott, does your wife have very small hands? I thought I did too, but I couldn't hit with that little thing, much less accurately. Just too small for me.

    I enjoyed shooting bot the Sig 220 that I've handled, as well as the Kahr's that I've had the opportunity to handle. Sounds like you guys are having a good time, goodluck.

    Yeah very small hands, thats why I bought it, it was about the only thing that fit her, but I have quite large hands, thats why I didn't get a compact, and I was able to shoot it strait. The DAO takes some getting used to but she shot it fine first try. I had trouble finding the holes from the DA put on the Sig, but I got it figured out pretty quick, the SA were right down the middle, I did a double take when the first round I shot standing up made the center of the target disappear.
