I need some help from those of you who have served in the Marine Corps.I am a pastor who never was in the military. A young man who grew up in the church I served for the last 8 years has joined the Marines and will be going to basic training when he graduates from high school this spring. I am organizing a cookout in his honor (not a church function, just some friends) to say goodbye, show our support, and to thank him for his dedication to our country.We want to give him a gift. Here's where this is gun related. If I could, I would send him off with an engraved sidearm, but I am pretty certain that would be frowned upon and disallowed etc. My second choice is a holster. I think Smith and Wesson sends holsters to people in the military. Can just anybody do that? If so what would be the very best choice. Cost is not too big a concern. If we can't do that is there anything we can do? He will,of course,have our prayers but I would very much like for him to carry some tangible memento from home. Thank you in advance for your help.
