Treated my Son and 18 yr. old Grandson to a Tactical Pistol Course 3 weeks ago. Son shot his G17 and I gave my grandson his choice of several glocks and 1911's. He picked a full size 1911 over everything else. He did really well with it, so I carried him and his girlfriend to the range today for him to shoot the pistol more. After range session, I showed him how to field-strip it and clean everything and when finished. I GAVE HIM THE PISTOL plus several mags, 200 rds. ammo and a new cleaning kit. Also a new Desantis holster and double mag carrier. He was really shocked but very happy.
