    Your better half's handgun(s)

    Lets see what your boss shoots! I'll start.
    My wife of 30 yrs likes these three.
    H&R 999 Sportsman for farm patrol
    S&W Shield 9mm for the car/carry
    S&W m67-1 .38 Special
    She shoots all three really well but likes her revolvers best!

    My wife of 48+ years: Favorite to shoot is her Kimber pro carry II in 45ACP. For concealed carry either her .40 Shield or her .38 S&W 642. Occasionally her .380 LCP that she really is not fond of or my 9mm Rohrbaugh that she really likes. We always have a 1911 handy in various places in the house for security and a short 12ga pump in the bedroom. She has shot nearly everything I own. If I come home late &/or drunk I'm knocking on the neighbors door

    What is funny is, Every time I would buy a New Handgun, I would say, Honey, I bought You a New Gun.
    She would shoot it once, and say, it is too big, or Kicks too much.
    So, I would just have to go down and buy her Another one.
    She finally got Smart, and started buying he own Handguns and Shotguns.

    My wife is more of a plinker than a real shooter but does accompany me to the range now and then to keep her hand in. She's shot everything in the safe but her two 'personal' handguns are a mid-60s Ruger 'Standard' .22 that was the first pistol she ever fired and a 4" Colt Diamondback .38 that was a birthday present many, many years ago.

    Put my wife firmly in the plinker/toy category. her preferred piece at the range is the beretta neos 22lr I picked up for her. She's come around to linking my handloads in the 38spec and a 9mm walther but I'm happy she just wants to go with. I just tell her if push comes to shove make sure she empties the magazine. a dozen little holes is still better than a whistle.

    SWMBO in my life has been hanging around for nearly 42 years, she was a Bailiff/Transportation Deputy from 89'-99' and carried a Gen 2 Glock 19 for most of that. These days the Glock 19 stays on her Nightstand, a Gen 3 Glock 26 usually travels in the Center Console on the Dodge and a Ruger LCR in 9mm lives in her Pistol-Packin' Mama Leather Purse.

    My wife's "dowry" when we got hitched was her Dad gave her his Colt Anaconda 44 Mag, factory ported, 6-inch barrel (might be 5 inches). She is a tack driver with 44 Special loads in it, and carries full power loads when hiking. Truth is, she's a better shot than I am with it. Yes, I behave myself very very much!

    She hasn't shot a firearm in over 13 years.
    She has no desire to shoot yet isn't afraid of them.

    Your better half's handgun(s)

    Mine wants nothing to do w/ them. This is concerning because she's w/ our kids all the time. But at the same time she would most likely use it on me. I'm that hard to deal w/

    My lovely gal carries a Model 19 around the farm and a Colt Agent w/hammer shroud in town. She's extremely proficient with both.

    My wife's favorite "Because it feels good in my hand" is a Bersa 380. She can't hit a wall (or the ceiling) in a confined room but boy, does she have fun. I guess it's more of a little noise maker that a defensive weapon, but better something than nothing.

    That's my disposable piece I keep in the car , nothing wrong with it at all and in the case of emergency the cops can keep it as far as I'm concerned.

    The best part of SWMBO shooting is when I need reloading components she tells me to put them on her credit card. I had her buy a box of defense loads for her 45ACP once, then told her I can load them for less than $.10 per round. She goes to the range with me a couple times a month and shoots lots of rounds

    My girlfriend has both a colt detective special and a s&w chiefs special , I've coveted them both for a long long time now .

    The colt was her dad's and as far as I know is still as new in the box . The Smith gets semi regular exercise , sometimes I'm even allowed to shoot it .
