    My Wife's Big Day

    Today was a big day for my wife. We went to the shooting range to test out my new S&W 27-9 .357 Magnum and for my wife to use .357 instead of .38 special rounds in her model 60 .357 Lady Smith revolver. After 2 shots she hollered out, "I can't do this. I'm going to have a big bruise on my hand from this thing". Being the typical "knight in shining armor" husband I am, I said "You're probably holding it wrong". Then I tried it. This little thing kicked like a mule on crack and made my hand hurt like mad. It shot all over the place. I wasn't going to pay a premium for .357 Magnum if all I can shoot in it is .38 Special. The first thing I did (after I shot all my ammo of course) was to pack up that S&W, drive home, pick up the box and contents, drive to my LGS and trade that pariah for a proper gun, a Remington R1 1911 in brushed stainless steel My wife had tried my R1, liked it and shot well with it so I figured why mess with success. She's now the proud owner of a nice new shiny, clean 1911. You definitely can't beat a successful 102 year old design. BTW, my 27-9 S&W with the 6.6" barrel shot like a champ but not better than my 1911.
    I'm not as much of a gun enthusiast as I am a "I don't want to be killed by a thug in the street enthusiast".

    Well done sir, the Smith J frames in .357 are difficult.

    You're definitely right about that. They should have never rated them over .38 Special. The gun is quite accurate in .38 Special but totally uncontrollable in .357 Magnum and painful. Now my N frame 27-9 is very easily controllable and very accurate even at 75 feet as is my 1911 (and hers).
