Thanks for the nice comments, it really made my day and caught me off-guard.
The gun she gave me is a 9mm w/8 rd mags; the .40 comes w/7 rd. mags. Those choices caused a lot of waffling with me and is really why I hadn't bought the gun yet. So I got it as a gift and it looks like the decision is made for me. Of course, one day I could get it in .40 cal. too.
My wife came outside while we were shooting it and she readily volunteered to shoot a mag. She really liked it and shot it well too.
While she was out there I happened to have my Garand out too so my son could shoot it. Knowing how big a fan my wife is of "Band of Brothers", I encouraged her to shoot the Garand. As soon as she "shouldered" that big rifle I knew she wouldn't like it. She fired off 2-3 rounds and decided it was just too big and she thought it was too weird to look through that "little hole" to aim.
That is a sweet gun!

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
Very Cool! Way nice!

That's real nice. Just rub it in.
Yesterday I had to go to the "big city" so I cc'd my new 239 at 4 o'clock. I drove for an hour, was busy running errands for about 5 hours, then drove back home for an hour. It did fine. Initially I thought it might be a little heavy and thick, and maybe it is, but I hardly noticed it.
When I got home, my wife was in the kitchen and I pointed to my waist and asked her to spot it for me, she looked, but claimed she coudn't see it. She finally touched it and smiled, because she knew I was cc the gun she gave me. We've got to go back today and I'll cc it again.
I think I'm going to "force myself" to enhance my Sig collection of 239 and 229's.
"my wife stunned me yesterday" awwww shucks...I was getting ready for a taser story. you know, one of those "honey, what does this do?....zzzzzt!

Good deal. Life is not so bad after all. You must also be doing a good job from where She is standing.
