    My girlfriends first gun

    So while I was at cabelas today to purchase my ruger lcp (see other threat "Ruger LCP") I purchased my girlfriend her first handgun. Its a simple Walther P22 to just get her started. I love how she has finally decided to see why I love shooting so much!!! I can't wait to get to the range!!! HAHA

    Nice choice for her. Remember, the instructions advise high velocity ammo. No need for her to get discouraged with malfunctions related to ammo. Enjoy!

    Good Choice. My girl didnt like shooting either. I showed her a Rigarmi 25 Chrome with pearl handles. WOOOOO like 4 th of july.

    Later my son came over with his p22 we all went to the gun range. She shot both.

    I then took her to the gun shop and showed her the pink lady smith.
    huhhuhu. Now she is taking the CCW course.

    I have been pushing her but she is pushing back so I had to try another approach. She handles large sums of money and does a bank drop at night. I get worried sick sometimes.

    Nothing like watching your girlfriend/wife step up at the range with tight jeans on, a hip holster with a full extra mag in the back pocket. MMMmm

    I'm sorry what were we talking about?

    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

    The first gen. P22 had a lot of issues, but I just got to tinker with a new one this week at the range; I got one on order. It was a lot of fun to shoot, and would make an excellent trainer for new combat shooters.

    In the latest edition of Gun Digest's Handbook of Combat Handgunnery, Masaad Ayoob devotes no small amount of print to the matter of guns and women. Its worth the read for both genders.

    My wife and I are about to go pick up HER hot pink sig mosquito. She will sign the papers and it will be completely hers with my name nowhere on it. It's gonna be her first gun and we're excited. Probably me more than her, but we're both excited. Maybe after that, I can move her up to a 9mm. Starting with a Sig kinda sets the bar high though doesn't it? I mean who wants to go from that to something of lesser quality, bells, and whistles? Maybe that'll pave the way for me to have nicer guns.

    My wife has pretty much taken ownership of my Ruger Mark II, until we get back from the range and it needs to be cleaned, but I'm not complaining.
    Thanks,

    To answer your question Glock17mark She already has one. She seems pretty excited about learning how to shoot and eventually getting a carry gun of her own. (She has been eyeballing my LCP alot haha)

    My girl, just took the course for her CCW. I let her qualify with my Ruger Security Six 4" with 38 Spcl wadcutters. Now we are waiting for it to arrive. I thought about the Ruger LCP, but heard it was not easy to get.....high demand. So, I decided to get the Keltec P3AT. They do look almost exactly alike. I was going to let her have my Walther PPK/S but she couldn't rack the slide, hopefully, she'll be able to do it with the Keltec.

    My wife likes her P99C.

    Nice thing about the P22 is it is a good practice and starting step to a P99C or PPS for carry (IMHO).
