    Our son separated from Camp Pendleton and came home for 30 days of leave.
    Just 21 in January, I gave him his first hand gun, a Glock 26 9 mm.
    No ammo, just components to reload 500 rounds.
    He ended up breaking the heart of a young girl that worked at a gun shop, loaded and shot all
    my 9 mm stuff, bought another Glock, a 19 and shipped out to Quantico yesterday.

    Gonna miss that boy.

    Well, that was just the first week. Seriously though, he signed a contract that
    forbade marriage for 3 years.

    He is a fine physical specimen, and I am quite sure he will take care of business! What a reassuring privilege to know we are protected by him !!!!!!

    When he's finished with his Marine duty, the Secret Service likes, and always needs guys like him too!

    Haha, he panicked when he saw the required reading and he tole Drama Hand he didn't have to read that much to
    get through High School. So, every night he sends her a text and says he made it another day.

    Evidently, the Quantico Weapons Training Battalion is the real deal.
    Fail, go to maybe Okinawa.
    Pass and who knows. Pakistan?

    I just wish I had a Beretta 92 for him to train with while he was here. He said you look better on paper with
    good hand gun scores, but he wanted that Glock 26. I feel stupid having never owned a Beretta 92.
    I just never warmed up to that slide mounted safety.
    .
    As far as fitness goes, this kid is an animal. He was the only Marine at Camp Pendleton who got a perfect score on physical fitness.
