I would first like to say that I have been reading threw this forum for a few weeks know and have learned a lot. This is my first forum and am looking forward to joining in on some discussions. My wife and I are in our 30's and we have been shooting guns all our life. We recently took our CHL class together and received them in the mail a few days ago.:danceban: She is decorator and is at new construction sites a lot by herself and it's nice to know that she can now protect herself when she is there. She carries a Springfield XD sub. 9 that I bought her a few months back and she loves it. I carry a S&W 40 VE. But will be getting something smaller to carry full time. So I would like to get your opinion on the springfield XD 40 sub. Thanks.
