Just a hint for your wife, if she gets good enough with a gun to be a comfortable shooting all the time, a 22 really is a good idea.
Im a smaller female with delicate hands, I shoot a sig 22, and Love It, low recoil, fits small hands very well, feels like an extension of my
fingers. She might try one, you never know
And remember, you can kill a guy with a 22 just as easily as with a 9mm
Just a little update after a bit of time. My wife has adjusted more to having a gun in the house. She likes to go to the range with me (now it is
our time to spend together). We looked at a couple types of guns for her, but she stated that she wanted to stay with a 9mm, so after shooting a few,
she chose the Taurus Slim (holds 7 in a slim magazine). We found a gun shop only 25 minutes from us that you can go in and test fire different
pistols before you decide a type to buy.
She still has issues field stripping the slide off of it, but is getting better. I won't lie, I even have issues field stripping that gun. But all
in all, she likes it and it fires how she likes.
I think, after shooting a few, I will be going after the Springfield XDM. Need to save the money now, but I think I do like it and the way it
Oh, here is one for you. I get a biometric safe, made from Viking. So I receive it and the reader casing looks a little scratched on the side, not
the actual reader itself. I program in my hands and it will read correctly and open about every 5th time. I spent alot of time looking at this
product and this made me quite unhappy as it should open every time, or at least every 2nd time.
So I contact the company and the lady on the phone states that if I am over 50, it will not read right as any biometric device will have trouble
reading fingerprints if your over 50. I am not 50 yet but I ask her why this is so, she explains to me that once you hit 50 years old, your
fingerprints start to disappear and rub off. I was like, um excuse me? She said she tried to put it in the specifications online but it kept being
So to make a long one short, lets just say that the safe is returned and we are looking for another safe.
