    Finally after 5 years!!

    After 5 years I have finally convinced my wife of the importance of self protection in this day and age. I just put a down payment on a S & W 638. Sure it's a small gun, I would have rather gone with a big beefy 45 semi-auto, but I wanted to make sure my wife will enjoy shooting it as well. I also got this gun as an introductory to conceal and carry. My main goal is get my wife to enjoy shooting that she will want her own, maybe another 638 with a pink grip. Well as soon as I pick it up, I will be sure to post some picts. I have learned a lot from you guys and I can't wait to make the wal-mart trip. (probably won't be for another few months)

    Thanks,
    St. Louis Eman

    So was it all the recent shootings that changed her mind?
