    Today is the day!!

    Finally picking up my S&W 638. I will post picts soon. It took me 5 years to convince my wife to get a gun, hopefully it won't take that long to convince her the need to carry it.

    Nice choice. Diligence pays off eventually. It seems most all of us have to "work" on the wives to convince them to do the smart thing

    Just got back from the range. Never fired a revolver before and didn't realize how snappy it is. Unfortunately all the ammo they had for the gun was target rounds, so I bought some until I can locate a good SD round. Should have some picts up by tomorrow.

    All American,
    It would be great to get her a gun, then I can carry and she can carry and we have back ups for HD.

    I would like to try several revolvers and eventually own one.

    It took me that long to convince her that a gun is one of many tools needed in a preparedness/protection plan.
