The best thing about your deal is now your wife has "her gun". She got to choose what she liked and while you showed her other choices you didn't get all macho and force her to take something she didn't want. Every handgun shooter needs "their own" .22 (I have about 2 dozend of them now
). This will pay off in both your shooting enjoyment in the long run and I wouldn't be a bit suprised if it didn't payoff in another part of the house in the short run.
