My wife came home from some kind of quilting group the other day and was telling me about another member talking with her about coming back from the range. They talked guns very briefly amongst a few shocked stares. Primarily this was the other lady explaining events that lead her to get a CCW.
Today was cold and rainy so I suggested going to the range and to my surprise she agreed.
I took my SP101 .327 with 9 lb Wolff spring, and my Sig P239 with both .357 & .40 barrels.
I started her out with .32 Longs at 10 ft. My wife seemed to enjoy it because she kept backing the target out further and further with each reload. She said she was getting tired, so I asked her to try a cylinder of .32 H&R Magnums. She didn't have any difficulty with those, so I gave her a speed loader with Federal 85gr Hydra-shok .327 magnums.
She shot four of the Federals, but there were two fail-to-fires. That was annoying! After she left the range area, I loaded a cylinder of Speer Golddot 115gr .327 and also had two fail-to-fires. I'm guessing that although I never had a problem before, the 9 lb spring is borderline so I took it out and put in the 10 lb one afterwards. I tried the 12 lb briefly, but that's a really heavy trigger so I put in the 10 instead. I'll have to test it!
I used the rest of my range time to shoot the Sig P239 with both .40 and .357 barrels. Damn I like that gun more and more! I think my wife would like it too, but I haven't been able to get her to try it yet.
