bought the wife a new toy

My wifes b-day is next month but we are going to her parents for thanksgiving and wanted her to have the gun so she could practice with it out there. I borrowed a few different guns and we went to Alpine gun range yesterday. First out of the bag was the keltec 9. THIS GUN SUCKS! Hard to hold on to, jammed on me and pinched my thumb unjamming it, lovely. Worst part about it was that she couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with it...... just too hard to hold on to. Then she shot the XD9SC. This gun is super nice, has mag release on either side which is nice since she is a lefty, and shoots nice and accurate. I then had her shoot my Taurus 24/7 40 and she liked it but felt it had too much kick for her.

We then walked into the gun store there and picked up a brand new XD9SC set up with light for a pretty good price, $479.00+tax. total just shy of $510.00. This was cheaper then ANYWHERE I could find in the area. Guys up at the range are nice and knowledgeable. The range was supper crazy with way too many people so we didn't go back out and shoot the new one but she will get plenty of practice at thanksgiving. I might have to get me one now. That gun is NICE!

dude she is a country girl, has already taken her CHL class as well as growing up in a millitary family. Having NEVER shot my 40cal, she took it to her chl class and shot expert.

Chris, BigSHOE, said something along the lines of her being a crazy angry chick with a gun. lol

i know! just think..... IF you happen to break into my house not only are to you going to get 30 40cal hollow points.... you will get the same in 9mm from my wife. That is only because I don't have many extra clips yet......

It was funny, she said If someone comes in I don't want to shoot the dogs by accident. my reply was " dip shit, you have a damn light on your gun. you will be able to see the dogs."

That is the same pistol my wife carries. I have the 40 xdsc and love it, it's my daily carry gun.

I looked and called all over the dfw area to find a decent price. Alpine was the best price I found, then when we got there it had to light to go with it...... SCORE!

I have looked at some of their firearms and the associated prices before and found them to be laughable actually. I was in the store when they were working up a price for a guy on an AR15 for a smoking deal of $1800+. Basic 16" barreled rifle. This was back in September this year not last years election time period.

I will have to give them another look see next trip home.

I'm not gonna say all their prices were fantastic, but on this particular gun I couldn't find a better price in the metroplex.
