They're good (not great), serviceable revolvers. It's in .38 S&W, isn't it, not .38 Special?

If she doesnt, start her off small, and then hopefully U know someone w one, and she can see that its a lot of fun to shoot, w very little recoil. If she does shoot w U, just borrow one and let her see just how smooth they are to shoot.

An all time favorite of mine, (that usually works for me)- do like a lot of women do, and leave out pics of it, leave magazines folded open to it. If U have kids, especially if they're @ least teenagers, talk to them and try to get them to "spill the beans" so to speak. Hope that might help out a little bit! Good Luck!!!

No kids, yet so that won't work. She has been shooting once, was the 1st time for both of us, and she seemed to have fun, she even tried out the .357 magnum. Her only complaint was the 12 gauge kinda kikt her but a bit. She is of the mindset that one gun is enough though and only 'cause i convinced her we needed something for home defense after we came home one day to the front door wide open.

Is your wife planning to spend that kind of money on a Christmas present for you?

That's a Major part of the issue Bob, we aren't exactly rich, we're but we can afford it as long as I don't go overboard on optics and other accessories, we've been living well within our means since we got into our house a little over a year ago and have managed to save part of each paycheck so the money is there, I'm not trying to brag or anything but we have almost 6 months worth of income set aside just in case and buying an AR woundn't even come out of that fund. Getting my wife to spend money is like pulling teth sometimes, especially when it's on something she doesn't necessarily want. She has no problem sending our money to comcast every onth so she can play farmville, but another gun? forget it.

I'm the one in our marriage who hates to spend money. It's like physical pain to me. I have to think and plan over & over before I spend money on anything except medical expenses, groceries, gasoline, utilities and house payment. My problem is that my kid's vehicles and medical bills keep eating at my resources. They're grown, but I brought them into the world and I feel like they'll always be my responsibilities. When I think about a gun I'd like, my next thought is, "yeah, but what if ...", and I almost never buy it.

I commented on another post floating around somewhere about your model 1 S&W.. i was not aware you had it.. That 44 Russian contract saved S&W's bacon back before WWI.. and what a piece of history you have buddy..

On this puppy...im guessing its the 38/200 British round... thats what most of the victory's went over in, and just about as anemic as all the other early 38's before the special..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Yeah, that's what I figure the US Revolver is. It's pretty old, and a take-off on the "safety hammerless" Smiths.

My grandpa's old break-top Smith .44 Russian is serial number 505. It's not pristine by any means; it was used by the original owner and certainly by my grandpa. It was hardly shot after my grandpa died in the early 1950's, and hasn't been shot at all in the last 40 years.

but we have no way of knowing what he is saying. I put some of it into a Language Convertor.
Non-sensical at best. I am going to block him and hope against nuclear retaliation!
