    Well its official!!!

    Ok i went to check my mail and there it was!!! It was like a beam of like on this one peace mail. It was my CW permit! I show it to my wife and she said " well i guess i will give you your christmas gift now". She handed me a black box with the words Springfield Armory on it, I opened it up and it was a XD Sub-Compact in .40, I cant wait till this weekend!!!

    Now,,,,, get her one and a gun and return the favor. It will help you to sleep better at night when you are away from her to know she is able to protect herself. It also empowers lots of women and boosts their self esteem and confidence and will make the two of you one heck of a team.
    NOW,,,, don't tell anyone else. The more people that know, the less chance you have to use the element of surprise in a given situation and the greater chance that you will be "fingered" in a tense situation and forced to act before you are ready. GOOD LUCK!!! HAVE FUN!!!

    One new gun per permit? I need to get on the ball and start applying for all the non-resident permits I can!
