Shit, really meant to post this here.

My brother turns 21 in about a month and I wanted to put him on the path of gunslinging righteousness. Anyways he will be gifted this and a glock 17 I am thinking. Any other suggestions?


First off I want you as my older brother. Second, has he shot a lot before? Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't glocks lacking in safety features? Obviously not an issue if he's experienced, but just food for thought.

Haha, yes he has shot quite a bit. He always gravitates towards my glocks when we shoot. I go to the range about once a month, usually, and always invite him and my other brother along as well.

And correct glocks don't have any type of conventional safety.

Ah I see. Seems like he would want a semi auto polymer pistol as opposed to a revolver. I'm making that assumption cause he gravitates towards your glock. On the rifle side of things I think a smith and Wesson m&p 15 would be dope. Only .22 but cheap to shoot and supposed to be a blast. I think the coolest gift would be a ruger 10/22. Once again only .22 but it shoots great and turning him onto all the customization options for it would be really exciting and fun. Atleast for me. The archangel conversion kit is absolutely great. I can think more on it but from a practicality but still awesome factor those are my suggestions.

My first gun was a Glock 19. I think any Glock in 9mm is a fine beginner handgun for someone who is not a dumbass. A safety does not make a gun safe, the operator does.

For the accident prone and careless firearms enthusiasts I recommend anything that can stop them from discharging a weapon, such as a safety lever or just not owning or using weaponry.

That is a pretty great older brother move, Bauber.
