New Family Member

Just picked up the new family member for the wife's birthday. Her and I went out behind the barn to the home range and tested it out. She's a fine shooter for sure and mild recoil with the 38's little wicked with full house 357's but still manageable. Main thing is She loves it. She also got her first chance on the micro carry since I purchased it, think I made a mistake and will end up with the LCP she carrys now instead as a backup. Anyways here's a pic.

Nice looking pistol but it sounds like your wife may have gotten two guns for her birthday. LOL

Her exact words were " and I've been carrying the LCP all this time! This thing shoots sweet!" Yup, might have blundered there. But, it might get me a new 9mm Kimber if I play the cards right.

Got one myself and it IS a nice revolver. Only mod I made was I replaced the stock sight with an XS standard dot. It was a bit hard for me to see the stock sight and the XS did the trick.

Front site on the new ones is bright white inlay. And the double action trigger is the best I've used on a revolver. I was very happy once we went out and shot it how smooth it really was.

Glad to hear they "fixed" what was originally an all black sight. Yeah, the trigger is great and a pleasant surprise for a DAO.
