My wife really enjoys shooting, handguns and rifles , but has never felt she wanted a house gun. She has always felt comfortable with a ball bat by her side of the head board. I told her the other night that we needed to have a serious talk about her having a handgun in her night stand. She has a Mossy 500 20ga, I told her it was getting a 20" barrel and would be on her end of the closet. My end of the closet has my R92 16" barrel .357 loaded with .38 special. I said you need to try some handguns and see what she likes. She has shot my 941UL, 605 and 689 6" barrel and her 94 and Heritage Birds head, all with no problem. She never liked my KelTec P11, PF9 or P3AT. Awhile back I bought a Bersa Thunder Plus, which I like. She picked it up for the 1st time and said " Oh my I like this" So soon as some decent weather comes along she will try it out. I shot it today for 1st time in several weeks and I think it will become hers, we seem to like the same things. I posted earlier that the wife said I can buy a new gun for my Christmas present to myself. This might make it easier to decide what I will get.
