Ruger vs. Browning
Eileen, another choice would be the Beretta Neo line of .22lr. pistols. My wife and I both have one and they shoot great. She likes the grip frame
on the Beretta much better than the Ruger or Browning pieces.It fits her hand more comfortably. She even picked up a grip with blue inserts to personalize her gun. She shoots it very well and has alot of confidence with the Beretta. I personally think they are kind of homely, but I cannot argue how well they shoot. Just another option for you to consider. They come in different barrel lengths, finish, and grip frame options.
