    I have been putting off posting pictures of my Smith & Wesson .45 that I got for Christmas last yr. I was positive that I wasnt going to get it and when I unwrapped my box and saw the S&W logo on the case, I was beside myself! I figured I'd post them, since I had both guns out. Apologize for taking so long.
    Its not my favorite pistol but I am becoming attached to it.

    Now that is a good looking wheel gun. I love those old wheel guns and its good to see a female that is not afraid to own one. Does it shoot close to acurate or did you have to have the sights adjusted? :cool2:

    NICE Amy! Good lookin' gun. I've been told I should choose a different type, but I kinda like a pistol myself. Don't have much experience with anything else. Thanks for the pics sis!

    I like the revolvers better than the autos. Yes, it is accurate.

    Dont shoot CCI's Gary, thanks for the insight, didnt know that.

    Its smooth Colt!

    Nice looking pistol Amy! Thanks for the pics.
    I too, wonder what is your favorite pistol?

    Great for a woman to be able to shoot. I taught my wife soon after we married and she still loves shooting.

    Nice sidearm, reb. My favorite is my Colt 1911A passed on to me by my Dad. It was his sidearm in WW2.

    Thanks Dayton and Pat,
    My favorite is my Taurus .357 8 shoot with an 8 inch barrell. I've had it for years and have had alot of practice with it. I'd post a picture of it also, but my brother has it right now:crazy:. Oh the horror everytime I think about him having it. He let me have his .357 for a while so I guess it was only right that he have mine and do some targeting with it.

    Her husband is the one that needs to watch out. LOL. I've had pause to consider the ramifications of the fact I taught my wife to shoot. Then console myself with the realization that in the worst case scenario it would probably hurt less. Nice gun. Good to see a girl packing something bigger than a "hideaway".

    Amy with all that fire power, I would hang on the side of caution, if I ever came to visit you. Stay uner the lights, out in the open, and walk straight to the front door. Nice Pistol. Thanks for sharing.:lol: :big_smile:
