I've been visiting the site for about 6 months and finally decided to join. New to this forum NOT new to forums!

That's why I was hesitant, if you know what I mean. But you guys/gals seem nice enough...

Anyways I'm also new to firearms/2nd amendment bought my first love in 2008 Remington 870 12ga. LOVE THAT GUN!!! 5 other guns later and here I am, and the wifey does not like my new "hobby" lol. She says it's too expensive. :facepalm:

So just wanted to say hello. . . Hello!

Welcome to Calguns. Buy your wife a .22 rifle so that you can take her to the range too. Tell her that a box of 500+ .22LR rounds is less than $20 at Walmart. Get her involved and appeal to her thrifty side. ;)

I've tired but she thinks the .22LR is "too weak" lol, go figure.

Too weak? What does that mean she likes heavy recoiling firearms. If your shooting for fun, I dont think anything beats a .22 for the quantity of rounds you can put down range, vs cost vs enjoyment. If your shooting to kill or put something down, there are many rounds for the job, but when yourshooting for dun, practice, 22lr all the way. My carry pistol is .40 S&W. I have much improved my .40 pistol shooting by shooting tons of 22lr. Grip, stance, sight alignment, trigger pull. Buy her a 22 and make her shoot it until she enjoys it. Then ask her what other kind of gun she wants. Dont hesitate to keep buying her another gun, again and again, until you finally find the perfect gun for her. nobody can fault you for your endless pursuit at finding the right gun for her.

Well that can get kinda expensive, and I think, she thinks the size is what matters... LMAO.

She likes my .357MAG, she just knows that ammo doesn't grow on trees and my thirst for more guns is some what uncontrollable. So she wont mind as much if I could control myself. :cool:

@ AdrenalinJunkie

I may have to take you up on that offer going alone blows...

and thanks for the additional welcome/s guys!
