    Exclamation My wife is great!

    We had been in "negotiations" for a couple weeks now about me getting a new gun. As a hint, I filled in all the info, minus the credit card, for an on-line order and left it on the screen right before my wife used the computer last night. I assumed she's just delete it. Instead, she came out of the office a little while later and said, "I ordered your gun. Now sell the other one to pay for it." I was floored! So the bad news is my XD will be on the chopping block, but I'm fickle, so I'll have this to comfort me:

    SIG Sauer P229 SAS Gen 2!

    I would take the Sig over the XD any day.

    But that's just me.

    That's not going to happen. Gun money doesn't come out of household money. So to fund the Sig, both the XD's have to go. I don't like selling guns, but I've wanted a Sig since I was about 20 and this is the only way for the foreseeable future to get one.

    Yeah, she's OK.

    Haha, very clever todd. I made a promise to sell my S&W 22A to get my 96FS, still haven't done it, so it looks like we're in the same boat.

    Good luck with that sig, it's a nice looking gun.

    Believe me, this will be something I have to follow through on or else there will be hell to pay.

    I sure don't want you to go through that. We'll see how bad you want to stay on the wife's good side. How much for the XD9SC?

    It took me a hell of a long time to figure out why the Gen 2 is visually different than the standard P229. It has no rails! So I checked Sig's site and apparently they took the rails off to make it more snag free. Factory nightsights and SRT are on this model; a big plus. Nice snag!

    Not only is there no rail, but look at the trigger guard and top of the slide compared to the standard model. Everything has been rounded for less snag.

    Congratulations Todd...nice choice on the SIG..Have fun..I know that tingling feeling of purchasing a new gun that you have always wanted..And the best part is that the wife is in approval..That's a double bonus of self satisfaction with the purchase and that somebody really cares.

    Congrats, Todd! I'm in a similar situation, but almost the opposite. I just purchased my P3AT yesterday and when I hinted to my GF that I may sell the XD9SC to fund holster and ammo purchases she was dissapointed! The funniest thing about this is that she doesn't even like shooting the XD, she just doesn't want me to sell any guns. If I had a ring, I would have asked her to marry me on the spot!



    Wait a minute! I seem to remember a certain comment....hmmmm...where is that.....here it is!!!!

    I have no recollection of that. Must have been someone else.

    I have been sitting in wait for the day that I could use your own quote against you.

    Make room for one more in the boat...

    I have my eye on a Ruger Blackhawk .357/9mm convertible.

    Anyone out there interested in providing a good home for some HO model railroad stuff???

    Come on Todd, who wears the pants in your family?

    When I decided to purchase a new gun, I just bought it and told my wife about it later. Sure, she'd be a little bitchy and sulk for a few days, but that was a small price to pay for a new gun whenever I wanted one.

    But now that we're Divorced, I don't even have to put up with the sulking!

    Yeah, I did that once when I bought my AR15. I had the money and just went ahead an ordered it even though my wife made it clear she did not see the need. Apparently "I don't see the need" is woman code for "Don't event think about spending that kind of money on a gun, moron!" I still get s#*t about it, and that was almost 2 years ago! I'm not making that mistake again. But this time, since she technically ordered it, I'm in the clear!
