    Talking Don't you just love it!

    Took the wife to the local gun store to upgrade her CCW gun from a .357 wheel gun to a semi. She ended up with a new Taurus 24/7 Pro in 9 but hinted very heavily that she could also like the SW ($200.+ more than the Taurus) for Christmas. Guess that is why I married her over 30 years ago.

    Very nice find (the wife, that is). We were at cubscout camp this weekend and my wife didn't want to fire the BB guns with everyone else because they are too "noisy" for her. We have a 10y/o boy and a 13 y/o girl and my wife is the least qualified to handle a gun. At least she's pretty...

    My thoughts exactly.
    In what way is 9mm an upgrade from .357 magnum?

    ...from a wheel gun to a semi......certainly could be considered an upgrade by some!

    See, I went backwards. I went from the 24/7 to the Ruger SP101. Never looked back.

    Upgrade from 5 to 18 rounds, with a spare mag for 17 more, that is a definite upgrade, that and they are both 38 cal.

    Since when is trading to a higher risk of a malfunction/failure to feed/jam...and going from 357 magnum to a 9mm an upgrade?

    Does your wife really frequent environments that require the higher capacity of ammo at the expense of reliability and the simple MOA that a revolver brought to the situation?

    ...good for her...I think she should go with the gun she's most comfortable with whether its a semi, wheelgun, 9mm, .45, whatever.

    I hope she enjoys the weapon....start saving your pennies for the S&W!

    I think you're a lucky dude SheltonJ for marrying a woman like your wife!
