My son shot my 17 and loved it.He said he is going to start saving up for one so I gave him 20 bucks and a box of wwb to get him started.He then asked if he could keep mine till he got his and I told him I loved him an no way boy, this ones mine.
My wife loves my G19 which she has laid claims to for now. Shes pretty fond of my G26 also. My 12 yr old son loves all of my Glocks. I tried turning my father n law on to Glocks, but he says that they are ugly. And of course my reply to that was "I dont buy a Glock because its pretty. I buy Glock because they are reliable amd I know for sure that when I pull the trigger its gona go bang".
I tried to corrupt my oldest son years ago. I gave him a gen-2 19. He shot it for awhile then started griping about the grip design and angle. He sent it off to Robar for customizing. It looked and felt terrible. He sold it about a year later. Ungrateful turd.
So, fast forward to when the 43x and 48 came out. He wrapped his paws around my 43x and loved it. I helped him order a 48 and his CCW went from a Kahr 9mm to the 48.
Oldest son and I firmly in the Glock universe. He allowed me to buy a Ruger LC9S, shot it next to his Glock..sold the LC9S and have now bought and use 4 Glocks. Young son was looking at a Ruger EC-9s..liked the $...then we took him shooting with our -17, -43..he bought a 43 and then a 45..welcome to Glock!!
