    I created a monster.. wife wants a 38 special

    We went to the indoor gun range today (Ladies shoot free on Monday's). Anyway, I wanted her to try some different guns other than my XDM Compact... She started with the photo below... 357 and after shooting a few guns decided she likes the S&W 640 series... in the 38.

    Her smile after the first few shots in the 357 were priceless.

    I went through 250+ rounds in my XDM and I had 4 FTF when shooting Tula and I changed over to my Winchester and no more problems. One of the Russian bullets was actually smaller than the other 9mm... I have no idea how that happen but I am glad it FTF'd. It was in the new box of ammo I opened while at the range... Anyway, the targets where mostly at 10yds and I had a good day shooting...

    She's got good taste and knows what she wants.

    "One of the Russian bullets was actually smaller than the other 9mm..."

    As in smaller in diameter? Could you provide a comparative photo of this?

    That's great... You are going to need an ammo & range budget now...

    Good luck!

    Sounds like it was either 9mm makarov,or possibly even 380.Wolf quit making primers ,but Tula primers have shown up on reloading suppliers websites,my buddy has bought some and has had several that have failed to fire.Tula primers must be as bad as their ammo

    There is only one way to tame the monster, you may need another gun safe.

    How did your wife like the felt recoil on the 640?

    Sounds like you now have a shooting partner. Excellent job, well done.

    I wouldnt argue anymore, the only words that should come out of your mouth when she talks are "Yes hunnie". Or fear the wrath of a monster, who now knows how much fun range time is!

    She giveth and she taketh away!

    Have her try the 637 Airweight with Crimson Trace. The grip is a bit longer and the hole goes where the red dot is. At 15.2 oz, it is a near perfect carry gun. Absolutely reliable and with +P hollow points quite adequate. Of course I'm prejudice.

    The 640 with .38's is a nice shooting combination but your picture appears to show a 686

    OUCH! Word to the wise - don't let your wife read everything you write on forums, unless you want to pay the price. I guess I am now the one on the auction block.
