Howdy Mr. sportquad,

Well sir, first congrats on the pistol your wife and you were able to find. It really makes it that much nicer when both of you feel the pistol (or handgun) works well in both sets of hands too.

Of course it may be a bit more difficult, since she is also a member , but you can always suggest that the idea of having a backup pistol that is identical to her primary carry handgun is a very logical idea. Of course you can always shoot her "backup" and look out for it, while she does not need to make use of it.

You just never know, it might actually make perfect sense to her too. She does strike me as a very logical lady.

Good luck,


P.S. You my try explaining that my user name means I prefer to carry two identical pistols - same make, model and caliber. I mean what can it hurt :)

Dear Two Guns, You are right, I am very logical but sometimes you just have to throw that to the wind. Sportquad can get a new gun anytime he wants (as long as I get one too).

Howdy Mrs. Reelgirl,

I rest my case maam, a lady of true wisdom AND logic (grinning). It would be easier to type if I could quit laughing right now too.

I do like your style maam. I am glad you were able to find a handgun that seems to fit you so well too.

Of course, please don't forget, once you get to shoot it enough, since we helped you refine your selection criteria, you still owe us a "range report" on your newest handgun. Please don't worry that yours may not read like those written by Mr. Camp, lol. To me there is only one Mr. Steve maam, so just tell us how it works for you, what ammo you have tried, etc. Afterall, you are simply sharing your experiences with friends.

Enjoy shooting your newest,
