    Thumbs up Did I mention I love my wife?

    Well I do. We decided to beat the rush and go out for Valentines Day today. We stopped by our local Ace Hardware and were looking at the .45's they had. Well, they had the Glock 21, the S&W M& P 45, the kimber ultra 45 and the SA Xd45. We were checking them all out and had them narrowed down to the Kimber and the XD. She knew I have been wanting a .45 for a long time, so she looks and me and says, Get the XD if you want it, Happy Valentines Day!,

    Lots of smaller town Ace Hhardwares sell guns in MN and WI. They generally don't gouge you either because they are very customer focused. Also check them for cheaper ammo.

    Sounds like a real keeper wife just like mine.
