    Happy Birthday to me....

    Wifey said I could go and pick out any gun I wanted to put on Layaway for my birthday today... If I pushed I may have been able to bring it home today, but it is the first time she has ever offered to buy me a gun, so I didn't want to push it.

    So, where as its sleeping at the store for a couple of more months, I still consider myself the proud new owner a Springfield XD

    I already have a place picked out for it in the safe... right next to the 1911.... they are so cute when they're young.....

    Pics and range report when she comes home.

    Happy Birthday. My wife asked me what gun I wanted to go buy for my birthday and I didn't have one I wanted right then. So I'm shopping now. In my defense I had just bought a P220 SAO two tone a few weeks before my birthday.

    Well Happy Birthday!

    Can I get your wife to have a little chat with mine?

    Happy B-day! The transition from the 1911 to the XD is smooth, mostly just no thumb safety to wipe, and a little different trigger. You'll really enjoy it!
