    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.

    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.

    I think it's more like, " Honey, you went to the range again and did't take care of my 'Honey-do' list?!?............Zzzaaaaapppppppppp!
