My dad got his first gun back in february, a springfield 1911 champion. my mom decided she wanted to learn to shoot and they went to a safety class about 2 weeks ago. of course she hated the recoil from the .45. So my dad, being the generous guy he is, runs out yesterday and buys her a Beretta 84FS Cheetah in .380. While he was there he just happened to pick up a S&W 1911 (not sure which model yet, it has a black finish and a rail mount for lights/lasers). I'll post pics once he emails me some (They have to wait for the Indiana FFL to ship the guns to a Michigan FFL, where they live) I'm pretty psyched my folks are getting into guns this much. all thanks to me.
