My wife when we first decided to marry said no firearms in the house. I said they come with me, and she reluctantly agreed saying they needed to be in a safe. I already had safes, so no prob. I did have her get the Illinois FOID card since I was active duty and could deploy so IL said she needed the FOID.
A few years later we were visiting a friend of mine and he showed me his new trench shotgun reproduction. I said I would like one some day too. About a month later after work I get home and on the table is a large gift wrapped box, she had my buddy help her get me the shotgun and bayonet! Her first firearm purchase.
About the time of the riots and just before the ammo shortage she asked if we had enough ammo. I said what everyone says, never have enough. She said take 5K and get ammo for everything including her little LCP I bought her for her B-day awhile back.
She doesn’t shoot often and only her pistol, but she always hit center mass of the man size target. So I won’t complain.
Next step is the AR or SKS, she is acting interested.
