maybe a keymod rail would be better...smooth so no cheese grater feel, no need for rail guards, not too thick and you can still mount stuff on it easilyGreat points thanks! I was thinking of staying away from the quad rails for the same reasons. And also going with a nice light trigger.
I figured it would become a 'chicks with guns' thread... NES has let me down...Seeing the title, I'm surprised nobody posted:
My wife's favorite gun is ...
and my girlfriend's favorite gun is....
anyhow, moving right along - my wife likes her Sig P232, followed closely by her Sig P238.
You're welcome. Another thing--if you go with a non-rail handguard for her, don't try an allen screw/loctite gas block with a mini-rail on it for attaching the forward sling mount. The constant yanking will pull the block out of alignment and she will eventually get short cycling. Lesson learned here. Good luck, sounds like you've got a winner!
Sounds kind of familiar. That Officer's ACP was MINE originally. (note the use of the word "was".) But that was the gun she kept grabbing when we went to the N. Leominster pin shoots. I finally found another Officer's ACP (do you KNOW how hard that gun is to find in Marxachusetts??? I had to pay nearly a thousand bucks for it!), a blued one, and bought it - for HER. Her reaction? Oh, good... now you have one to shoot. And grabbed my stainless one.I had bought my wife a Colt Mustang but thought that I liked it even more, so I kept bringing her shopping, hoping she would find something she liked even more. Then she told me "I really like my pistol." I then asked, "So if we find something you like even more, I can't have yours, you'll just have two?" She replied "Yes."
She was with me when I stopped by an LGS. She asked if she could go inside with me. Not seeing any harm, I said "Sure."
Next thing I know, I hear this familiar sweet voice say, "That's cute. Can I see that?"
I rushed over but I was already too late. We left the store $800 poorer with her new Kimber Ultra Carry II and the first thing she said is, "Now I want a red dot (Crimson Trace) just like yours."
I didn't even have a $1,000 pistol at the time.
It gets worse!
I also had a Mini 14 but the original stock was too long for her to mount comfortably, so I spent some money and bought a folding, collapsible stock (for my rifle) so she could shoot it if she had to. I then traded a pistol for an AR and seeing a duplication, mentioned that I wanted to trade or sell the Mini 14. She said "Don't you sell my rifle!" She was serious.
