Heck, the kid in me wants one in green just to make the serious tactical gurus spasm. Lots of guys forget that half of shooting is having fun. Not everyone is preparing for the breakdown of society and failure of the government every time we pull the trigger. Some of us kids just want to shoot zombies....
+1 Grunt, this sounds like some quality time with a man and his son...

Amen to that. We shoot to spend time together and have fun.

It appears to be just a Nitron or an XO with the haz. mat. grips and an additional marking on the slide?

I actually like the grips. Don't think the Chief would though.

So, if you are seriously looking for a review response, check the Nitron/XO purchasers. Lucky boy you got there-must be a great kid! Congrats!

I heard a rumor that the CEO of Sig Sauer canceled the production of that pistol. Apparently Zombie was not the direction he wanted the company to go.

Interesting. Apparently I'm misinformed or misunderstood. Will dig up some more info.

As far as the Nitron, I have one and thoroughly enjoy it. Enough so that I'm looking to add another Sig to the lineup here. It's the lower tier 1911 in their lineup, and is still a well made firearm. I'm genuinely looking forward to getting one of their higher tier models. I had my doubts about that external extractor, but it's going strong and I've put a good bit of lead downrange with it.

Picked one up. My 13 girl loves it. It keeps her away from my Wilson and Nighthawks. Got the boy, 10, a Scorpian.

That is a cool thing to do there CDburner. He is going to love it. I have not shot one but I have no doubt it will hit a zombie head dead center.

I hope that someone at Sig comes to their senses. Creating and marketing a lethal weapon that looks like a toy does not seem like a good idea to me.

All guns can look like toys to children. It is how they are raised and trained that makes the difference in safety.

In a few years he will have outgrown the zombie thing, roughed the gun up a bit but learned how to handle it. Then it will be a good platform for a tuneup and refinish

It's interesting. The most respectful, ethically grounded young people I eno****er are the ones that I teach as part of our gun club's youth programs. Young Marines; Scouts, etc...

Something about the shooting sports helps impress responsibility on them.

Am I the only one who wishes all this zombie stuff would go away?

Love the fact that the OP is getting his son the gun he wants though. I hope at least one of my boys wants to shoot with me when they get a bit older.

I get a kid wanting it. Heck, check out Zombie mode on call of duty. Zombies are still cool for some folks.

I think it's more that they "self-select" into those feeders, or they are brought in to them by folks who already hold those character points dear. It takes work, commitment, and most importantly support at home to excel in those programs. The same thing needed to be a wise and responsible shooter.

My dad bought me my first handgun when I was six. Couldn't shoot it till I was 11. Still in great shape. Caring for a gun is as teachable as being safe with a gun and almost as important.
