    spoiled in a good way

    I have created a monster---LOL--At first,I fell in love with our sport day 1 during my NRA safety course . I worked on my wife to join us. It took making her realize that thugs would rape or kill her and the dogs if they got in.. she relented

    NOW-- a few years later.. she is getting spoiled. LOVES shooting 1911s esp in .45 acp(DW,EB,LB WC,NHC mostly ) and revolvers in .357 magnum. Is getting picky about shooting anything else. Turned her nose up when I brought a glock 19, a walther ppq, a HK vp 9 and a springfield xd mod 2 all in 9mm last week. She shot the Glock and Walther... then asked "what else do you have with you? I told her, she left the range.

    she left a shooting addict on the range with guns and ammo-- how sad--for her not ME!!!!!

    I would certainly appear that your wife can tell golden standards from fluff.

    once we bought the first Dan WEsson ,we KNEW we were spoiled. It became much worse once we bought the 1st Ed Brown(her favorite--the kobra FS). As we head into our 60s--it may be time that we spoiled ourselves as it does NOT look like we will ever be able to retire. So we might as well enjoy today and what it brings.


    I consider myself blessed and lucky to have shared all of my "hobbies" with my lifes partner. Thus whatever I can do to make range time fun for her-- it is my pleasure. She is the ONLY one to volunteer to serve a life sentence with me after all--LOL!!!


    It took almost 3 years to get to this point.. We have a nice selection to shoot on range days .

    Cannot wait for the DW Bruin (10mm)and CZ custom cts ls sao(9mm) to come in( that doe s it for 2016 though-- short but sweet-- the budget is drained unless she wins powerball--ha ha ha)


    . I am turning into a long slide guy. any side effects?

    "I am turning into a long slide guy. any side effects?" Probably no significant bad one, as long as you are referring to gun configuration. If you are talking about life's downslope, I prefer to walk, taking my time.

    Full size or longer slides are very nice. You definitely know what you want, sounds great.

    The side effects ? Hmm , Less recoil, Great reliability, Better accuracy, fun to shoot.

    The only negative might be the longer/full size slide when CCW. I concealed a govt model for years no prob.
