G27 Practice VS Wife's New G17

I set aside yesterday for my wife to initiate her new G17 Gen4 (Birthday gift from me!). I set up our range and she was anxious to get started. The target was set and the distance was 7 yards...she takes aim and the first round hits dead-center of the 10! After much celebration, she pounds several more magazines into the 8, 9 and 10 rings. Blow a hole into the backing board so big I had to change it.

So...while she was taking a short break, I grabbed my Blue Label G27 Gen4 to take advantage of her time away. I only had time to fire off 2 mag's before she returned to continue her belated Birthday "party" with her G17. I only had time to squeeze off 1 photo of my efforts to sneak in some range time...distance = 7 yards, ammo = Blazer 40 S&W, 180gr.

Oh...as we departed our range, I heard my wife declare that "I love my Glocks"!

Two excellent choices, happy B'day to your wife. You two are a sharpshooting couple that's for sure.

Happy birthday to your wife.

G27 is surprisingly fun to shoot. Not for the weak wristed or timid, but mine used to be my EDC before my Kimber Ultra took its place.

The G27 replaced a Shield in the same caliber. Besides the horrible trigger on the Shield, it certainly was "snappy"...too much for my previously broken hand. The G27 is a delight and though you know the 40 S&W is a lot "punchier" than a 9mm, I shoot it just as well.

Oh...the wife appreciates the Birthday wishes!

Funny! After being married (to the same gal) for 47 years, there isn't a thing I can do about her "good taste" in guns. She's not into the 1911's, so my Kimbers are safe. As you might guess, she has her own arsenal, so I'm not overly concerned with my firearms disappearing into her's...

BTW...she rides her own motorcycle and has for over 40 years...has her own taste in bikes, so like firearms, I don't have to worry about losing mine to her (though I did kind-of permanently "borrow" her Road King!).

In the final analysis, you are right...I'm in DEEP!
