    I'm going to go ahead and get them anyways. Even if it is ok to dry fire, I'd rather be safe than sorry. Plus I think it will help my wife to see them in the gun and in the chamber. Maybe it will help her to remember to always check the chamber if she can physicaly see that there is something in there. I don't want her getting used to the gun being empty all the time and forgetting to check.

    You are going to love that gun. Of all my handguns, it's my favorite. The XDs are really coming along and making a real good name for itself. For what it's worth.

    Congrats on your new gun. I been looking at that one myself and it seems like a winner. I shoot my son in laws 5" XD/.45 all the time and I like it a bunch. Good luck.

    Not only do you have a nice new gun, it sounds like you got a great shooting buddy. My wife got her CCW and then got her a Walther P22 and Sig 239. I have to drag her to the range now, I wished she enjoyed it more. Your a lucky man.

    My wife loves to shoot. Hates other guns going off close by. We now use earplugs and headsets (2400's suggestion), and that helped a lot. Next, we are going to try to find an outdoor range.

    She does OK until the deer hunters show up and set up next to us on the indoor range. Then she has to excuse herself and go sit in the lobby.

    Todd- Forgive the stupid question: I have the XD40 and was interested in swapping out the guide rod but wanted to make damn sure I knew which one to get. I have the XD40 5" Tactical but am NOT sure of whether it's a #14 or #16 rating (out of the box, no mods yet).

    Any ideas on where to find that out? Thx for any help/direction you can toss my way.

    I think the stock rating is actually 18#'s. Someone here might know for absolute sure. Otherwise I'd suggest posting the question on XD Talk, http://www.xdtalk.com/ , or sending an email to Springfield and asking them directly.

    I love my XD9. I'm really close to 10,000 rounds and I haven't even had it a year. Now it feels like a part of my arm when I shoot. I'll post a thread with pics once I hit that 10,000 round mark.

Plus I have always wanted a semi-auto pistol, so it all worked out really well.
    Have her take the CHL class anyway. The one I took in Fort Worth was only $99. Get that out of the way then let her decide on whether she wants to mail in the paperwork or not. You also spread out the cost.
