I am from Houston, TX. Mom, Wife, part time student, and I work. I love to go to the gun range for a little stress relief when I can fit it in. I've been shooting since I was a teen ager. My husband got me the XD40 a couple of years back for christmas and I fell in love. He has two XD45s but I still prefer my 40 to either of his. He just bought me the XDm yesterday for an early christmas present and I was told I'd love it even more than the XD I have now. I don't know if that is possible but I'm willing to see.
