Thanks for all the help guys! I'm think of getting them a gift card for my local range for christmas. I feel the revolver will do the trick. And planning on trying to push her to go a Class. I will update everyone when she picks

I bought my oldlady the pink sig mosquito for christmas because she wanted a range gun. But she has a glock 17 but every time we go to the range she looks at the sig. It was $360 nib so its only $10 more than you wanted to spend. Hopes it helps.

Take all the negative things you hear about the Sig mosquito into consideration before you go in that direction because based on the 3000 plus rounds I have put through mine over the last few months....that feedback is accurate. They look & feel great but constant issues....

Yah i heard the same thing about it after i bought it. But some research on the internet ive found out that most of the problems with it can be resolved with a little work done at home with the spring set up in the frame and trigger. And it was only $360 so it will be my ''dummy gun'' so i can mess around with it and get it to run better. Ive got a Gp 100 and my oldlady has a glock so its not for SD its a range gun. Honestly if the gun was mine i would have got a mark III and never regreted it. And around me a brand new ruger markIII is right around $300 out the door.

Have you considered a Heritage Rough Rider? They come in various barrel lengths. I have had one for well over 10 years. My Wife and I and the kids have shot the crap out of it. The worst thing that has ever happened was a screw came loose one time. 30 seconds with a screw drive and it was like new again. It doesnt get much simpler than a single action. And they can be bought brand new for well under $200. I have seen them new for $165.00

Charter Arms makes a 22 revolver that might fit your needs. I see them in gun stores around $350. MSRP is $412.

Charter Target Pathfinder .22 LR #72240
