My kids are a little spoiled and my daughter is the apple of my eye. I would most likely give her the 17L and eventually find a replacement for myself.

Looks like you have other pistols. If she specifically asked for your 17L for graduation present, I would be more than happy to give it to her. She can get other guns for home/self protection or competitions. Sounds like she really likes your 17L.

I have a 24(same size as 17l just in .40) and a 17 RTF2. They are probably the two gun I use the least. If I could open carry I may think differently but off well. RTF2 grip is to aggressive for IWB and the 24 is just huge.
I have a Gen4 34 that is great. But that's just my 2 cents.

When I turned 18 my parents gave me a "coupon" for a rifle of my choice under $500 dollars. I was very gracious and happy as I love guns, but it showed that I was a little disappointed it wasn't my dads p226(no matter how hard I tried to hide it, it showed.) The gun he taught me how to shoot with(and to this day the gun that I shoot the best with.)

He then proceeded to go into his safe, get the p226 and said it is yours if you want it. I will never forget that, and honestly it tears me up every time, because that meant so much to me, he knew that I would be happy getting the rifle and having a gun of my own, but he wanted to make my 18th birthday extra special. and that means so much to me. I will never sell it. No matter how hard of financial times I am in. I will never sell that gun.
