Been there and done that. Nothing wrong with being your own best friend. And I have told a number of other people the same thing. Some listen and some don't.

Shawn If your wife wears a dress occasionally and still wants to carry on her body show here this site -
https://www.cancanconcealment.com/collections/garters

On a first date with my future wife she got to shoot my old colt huntsman then a DW 15-2 with 38sp loads and 357mag loads . Well a few weeks later she asked if I would take her shooting again , SURE . We got to our shooting spot and she pulls out a brand new DW 15-2 of her own that she had picked up the week before . Love that women so almost 44 years later .

My wife has always been her own women when it comes to buying firearms but will ask questions about different firearms and I found out a couple years ago does not mind laying claim to one of mine ether .

I've come home from work to see her reading the manual or watching a video on a new handgun she has in front of her .

I wanted a small carry option a couple years back and picked up a Kimber stainless ultra in 9mm right down the street and added some thin grip panels to it and was just finishing up my 400 rounds of get to know it owner break in range time when I saw my wife watching from the second floor porch and stupidly asked if she wanted to try it . Kimber gone ! It's been my wifes EDC since but I did get to add a short trigger to it and test it for her and she has fired several thousand rounds of my reloads now . So went back and picked up a WC lw commander in 45 .

We have a general store only 3/10's of a mile away that displays around 400 firearms . Bad place to visit as all firearms are discounted too .

. Nothing wrong with a woman that loves guns...20 years ago it was not the case at my house. I had hunting rifles and a few handguns as I was still young (20) we got married and she was very "concerned" about my guns, with rightful reasons...her mother was shot and killed by her live in boyfriend. (domestic violence) when my wife was 12. So I understood her fear. She realized the gun wasn't the issue, it was the person using it. But still couldn't warm up to the idea of having them in the house. So I made sure she wasn't around when I would shoot. Long story short she decided to go sit in the deer stand with me one morning.... didn't see anything but we had a good time just enjoying nature together. She would ask a few questions about my rifle as it's old. An old Winchester 94 30-30. It's tattered and well used. I received it second hand at 12. She asked if it kicked and how loud it was etc etc. Asked if it was safe being it's old. I laughed and said oh yeah. It's still solid and my favorite gun. Heading out of the woods, she asks if she can shoot it! I said sure..set up a couple of plastic bottles from back of my truck about 50 yards out. Showed her how to safely operate the gun and how to look through the scope etc. Handed her the rifle, she loaded a few rounds into it and jacked one in the chamber, leveled it off and squeezed a round off. Missing the targets. I said ok how was it, she said it's ok but I missed the bottle. It's ok. First time shooting is expected. Hold on, let's try something different for a minute. Grabbed my 10/22 out of the truck and said try this. First shot takes the top off the bottle. I call luck but she does the second bottle the same way. Gets the Winchester back, props on the truck bed and nails the bottle. She had a blast. But I didn't push her to go back shooting. I waited for her to ask. A few months later she says she wants to try my pistol. I said sure, but which one? She says how many do you have? I said 3, .357 and a 45 long colt and a .40. She chose the 40. Took some practice but she got the hang of it. Grabbed the 357 (with 38 spl) and liked it. The 45, one shot and she was done 😂. She almost dropped it. Wasn't expecting the recoil. I let it all happen at her pace considering her past.

I get all giddy when my wife asks me what kind of firearm that is in a movie sometimes.

. Does she like it? Or is she asking so that she will know if she sees you sneaking one in? 😂

Lived with a gal that used to complain about me buying guns. I finally told her fine. I'll only spend whatever you spend on clothes minus what I spend on clothes. Never had a problem buying guns after that. She dropped enough on a designer purse to cover two handguns, lol.

My wife could care less about guns, after her taking the ccw course I bought her a Taurus m94 22/revolver just to practice with. It’s her own gun. She shot it once in 15 years. I’d buy her any gun she wanted.

You guys are lucky if your gals like guns.
