A Good Read...

Someone you might know wrote a good article over at the work place...

Which Gun for the Mrs.?
“I want a gun.”

Ahhh, the moment I’ve been waiting for. Don’t screw this up.

She said it nonchalantly, as we were watching television. Normally, she understands that important conversations are to wait until commercial break, and that she should never, ever interrupt “Longmire.” Or “The Walking Dead.” Or “Justified.” Or “Burn Notice.” Or any game involving a ball, unless it’s soccer, in which case she is welcomed to interrupt as often as possible, for as long as possible. I’m pretty sure that’s in the marriage vows somewhere.
Yeah, it's quintessential Ambulance Driver. Go, take a read. In his inimitable way, he very slyly and subtly lets you know how not to take a new shooter to the range, and especially how NOT to introduce your significant other to the shooting sports. Having been privileged to shoot with AD, I can assure you he is nothing like this in real life: he helped me get squared away on shotguns, and his instruction was both excellent and tuned to his audience.

Besides, the picture alone is worth the price of admission...

That is all.

That about sums up my experience as well. In fact I may be selling my 642 because I prefer my Kahr CM9 with similar (if not better) ballistics, less recoil and a smaller profile.

The_Missus has shot almost every hand cannon I own. .357s, a Colt Delta Elite (with original Norma ammunition) and of course .45s and 9mms. One day she insisted on trying the cute .38. 1 round and she hasn't touched it again. To be honest I think it has as much recoil as a 3" 629 with bear loads.
