We picked one up because my Daughter (15) had been drooling over one for months. She loves to shoot and recently picked up my Ruger SR9, LC9 S&W Shield 9 etc... and we've been shooting videos for YouTube. The entire family shoots. My wife picked up a Taurus 738 .380 Auto for her EDC. But, after much pressure and skepticism thinking my Daughter may only shoot it twice and loose interest in it... I picked up a PT1911 9mm. Turns out, she loves it. Here is the video

9mm 1911s are great guns. I hope to get one to keep my .45 company someday but I want some other guns first i.e. hunting shotgun/hunting .22 and maybe a .44 revolver. Being a new father means It's gonna take awhile.

For info, we had 100 rounds available to fire. The proposed break-in is 300 rounds. We did have a few issues (some shown in the video) during the first 50 rounds. After that the gun began performing much better.

Welcome from the Northwoods of MN.

I like the way she kept her trigger finger out of the trigger guard until she was ready to shoot evidently Dad has taught her well.

Congrats on the PT! Careful though! From the way your daughter was talking towards the end of the vid, it sounds like
she might be afflicted with the 1911 bug! :D
