Yeah, and the way I found it was it was the fourth or fifth thread on the first page. All I noticed was the latest post was that day. After that, I didn't look at dates.

Nonetheless, I'd also be curious to know how that turned out.

That's why you have to pop zombies in the bean. Otherwise, they may get back up without you realizing it!!
Maybe they should have a 'morgue' section, where, after a certain period of time with no responses, the thread just gets buried into that area, instead of letting them wander around among the living?

If she has carpal tunnel you might think more along the lines of a gun she can shoot well and hit the target. Forget power. The Ruger LCR in .22 mag will do the job at close range.

Default Need help choosing primary CCW pistol for wife.

This thread is almost 3 years old. My wife (MzGrnmnm) has carpal and Arthrits in both hands, and is preparing for a season of Rimfire shooting matches. She is also "Deadly Skilled" with wheel guns, preferring her Ruger SP101 or my late Dad's Security six....she wears braces and gloves to shoot the heavy stuff, but can't work the stiffer slides on most large frame Autoloaders. She likes the Bersa 380 series guns, one of our friends has one she shoots and has for SD...

Cluz: the LCR in 22 & 22mag. Has a terrible Trigger pull.....she's tried it.

One thing I noticed in this zombie thread was someone lumping the 22 wmr in with a 22LR. From a rifle the 22 wmr generates over 300 ft lb of energy with a 40 gr bullet at 1,900 fps. In a pistol with a 4" barrel the 22 wmr rivals the 380 in energy on the target. The 22 wmr might actually best the 380 in penetration.

Sadly there are very few 22Mags. Suitable for CC...
