    I'll be getting mine a lightweight J frame. Easy to use. Safer than a glock. Goes boom every time.

    Actually, I was thinking the same thing for my wife. Probably a 19.

    Why do men try to pick guns for their ladies? No wonder no women want to shoot.

    Then you gotta drag her ;)

    I just see alot of times where a guy says "I'm getting my g/f a g26, it'll be the perfect size for her" then she hates the trigger, recoil or most importantly the handfit and never shoots at all. Then they try out a 1911, p239 or keltec or something else and find they actually enjoy it. I wouldn't try to buy a gun for someone else any more than I'd want someone to try to buy a gun for me. Ymmv.

    We pick them out because we know they will hate them and then we get to keep it when she doesn't want it anymore. See, in reality we are buying the gun for ourselves, but then we can blame it on the bitch.

    It's pretty much a win win.

    I'm sorry honey I had no idea you wouldn't like a 4" s&w 500...its shiny and its compensated so I thought it'd be easy to shoot :big grin:

    my plan is to buy them something that I want and give it to them knowing that they would never use it so I would instead be buying a gun for myself. I wonder if I could use that as a tax deduction......

    She shot one of these and liked it. I'm not sure I like the grip safety though.

    Too bad the S9s aren't flashy.. I know mine would love something that small if it was a bit more attractive.

    I'm waiting on the SA1s but winter is a long way away.
