    I was all set and ready to send my brand new Glock 17 Gen 5. To Terhan Tacticle for the John Wick package . However, I've been over my parents quite a bit lately and my father, a very healthy and aware 71 year old, has been talking about getting a gun for home protection for year. Him and my mother live at home alone. Now. With everything going on in the news. All the attacks, riots, looting, and color wars he's become a lot more cautious. So I decided to suprise him and gift him the Glock. He was so happy and feels much safer. He is a former Vietnam Marine. He knows how to use a gun. But we are going to the range together tomorrow. So now I'm on the lookout for a new second gun.

    That's good to hear man, personally I think protection comes first and then pimping out a gun and making it look nice and awesome comes next.

    What second gun did you have in mind?

    Thank you. I tried to upload the video where I surprised him. My wife wrapped it and 50 rounds of 9mm hollow points in wrapping paper. But the file was to large. My father is old school. Never shows emotion. But he did last night. If you look hard you can see a small smile.

    Mr. Whick

    That is a very heart warming gesture for a Son to think of Dad and Mom!
    To me it shows a kid that was brought up right!
    And I am sure you feel better about their safety as well.
    And thank Dad for his service! I was in the Army during Vietnam and two years older than your Dad now! So I know he really appreciated your gift and your thoughts about their safety.
    I recently gave one of my Grandsons and new Glock Model 17 I had for his personal protection. He travels a lot with his job, and he and a couple of his friends go to an indoor range close by every week or two for an outing and to shoot.
    So You and Dad have a great time at the Range! :)

    Thank you. Appreciate the sentiment. It was fun watching him handle a gun after so long. But I know he feels 100% more secure in their home now. It's one less thing he has to woory about. Now I just have to replace it lol.

    Get another Glock. Not exactly rare.

    I gifted a 1911 to my father-in-law for the same reasons you gave the Glock to your Dad.

    Don't worry about the man with a pistol in every room worry about the man with 1 pistol and carries it to the bathroom.

    Very cool gift Wick! A lot of people are looking for home protection these days, I took my old man to the gun shop about a month ago and he picked out a FN 509 (I wasn’t nice enough to buy it for him:p)

    It's actually not called Black Ice. This is what it is.
