    G17. It's actually for my Mom. Probably just get some Jacketed bullet and load her up 1K or so.

    It's a miserable son indeed that buys his mother a kid's gun. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!

    It's kinda funny. She shot a lot of different guns. Then she shot my G34 and went 6 for 6 on the steel the first time. It was clear she did well with a Glock so that is what she got.

    HORSE?

    I have a 19, but I know the 17 is a great choice for a home defense, range, or general all around pistol as well.

    what better way to show your mother how much you care!

    I've owned all 5 Glock 9 millimeters at one point or another, currently down to three G34, G19 and G26.... I use the G34 as a game gun, prefer the G19 for winter carry and G26 for summer. Looking at buying my son a G17 for his 15th birthday in the next couple weeks.

    Glock is an excellent first gun. Easy to shoot. Forgiving of little shooting form "mistakes". Simple to operate and doesn't need cleaning much. <insert toilet="" dunk="" joke="">(insert toilet dunk joke)

    More important than the gun, PLEASE teach your mother proper gun safety, platform manipulation, and shooting technique! THEN she will be ready to use that nice new pistol. :)

    Have fun!</insert>

    She has had a lot of guns given to her. Unfortunately she can't operate any of them. Two of them she can't even pull the trigger on properly. So she and I have gone over gun safety etc. She needs to just get out and shoot some. She is a pretty good shot really.

    I gave the youngest boy a G23 for his birthday. If you want to call a 43 year old young. I gave one of my granddaughters a Glock Certificate for her 21st birthday. She wants to get a Glock 17. She tried them all and that is what she likes.

    You should introduce her Jack. Old people like to do things togeather. They could shoot and still make it to Denny's for the early bird.

    Well, we've got the Lee molds, the Lock N Load press... this could be the conclusive evidence that Stevie is a masochist.

    Steve, if she needs that many rounds, I'm sure many of us could suggest a great blue Christmas present for you to give to her.
