I just found out that my local range lowered their age requirements, meaning my soon to be 11 year old can go shoot with me. I’m considering the Browning 1911-22 Black Label Medallion (compact) and the Ruger Mark IV Standard with the 4.75” barrel. I really like the looks of the Browning. I handled one at Cabela’s, and it was nice, but the Ruger has been around forever, and seems to have the same controls and grip angle as a 1911. I’ve also considered a Ruger Single Six. I kinda like the idea of a single action as a first handgun. Take the time to cock the hammer, then fire. Not just be able to send lead down range as fast as you can pull the trigger. Anyone with both, or all three? Plus or minus to any of them, or am I good to go either way? Should I be considering something else? Thanks!
