Why not a Colt model with a conversion kit??

Or reload?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I thought a thread a while back said that Colt didn't make conversion kits, but if they do, that's definitely a solid option. And if it's his first handgun, he probably isn't equipped to reload yet.

You can put a Kimber conversion kit on a Colt.

The Colt might not like it but it will work.

I'm not really equipped to reload yet,
but I can assure you I will be.
Thanks for all the advice guys!

As I've always been a sucker for blued guns, here's my Commander - out the door for $700 so you have $$$ for mags and ammo...
