    She will do well. :up:

    My wife has had no interest in guns during most of our nearly 45 years of marriage. However, she has shot guns 2 or 3 times during those years, and seems to be a natural at it - unaffected by recoil, and close to the bulls eye most of the time. She went with me and my grandson to sight in the AR-15's we built, and shot them both very well. In fact, when I could not see the bulls eye at 50 yards, with iron sights, I let her do the shooting for the sight-in. She shot a 1-1/2" group at 50 yards and I adjusted the iron sights to the bulls-eye, based on the center of her group. She then shot another 1-1/2" group with one shot into the bulls eye. Not too shabby, with hand loaded milsurp bullets.

    Now she thinks the AR is her rifle.

    That happened to me with my M&P 9mm

    Beautiful. Don't you have a Ubertti too? Which action is smoother?

    I do, 1873 in 45 Colt. No comparison...the Uberti action is smoother, lighter and shorter. But it came with a short stroke already installed. I'll need to seee what weeks are available for hers.

    Nice looking rifle.

    I know now why I can't hang around here all the time. My gun wish list has went up by 3 in 2 weeks.

    Good looking iron....well done!

    Didn't take me long to get attached to my 1873....
