Confidence is huge. Women often require a certain degree of success to build on. Men are often determined to prove 'they can' in spite of the circumstances of their own limitations. I suppose it's a pride and bravado thing. It's just the way the two sexes are wired and have often been taught to approach new challenges more often than not.

I spent better than a decade coaching high school kids not so long ago. The girls responded best to building them up so they recognized how much they were capable of. The boys often needed to be knocked down a peg and humbled in order to progress.

My 938 has been flawless and I waited for it to go on sale so I got the stainless with the hogue grip and the Sig laser for $529.99 here in Jacksonville, FL. If she can't handle that then an LCR 357 is a good choice. Very light and no slide to manipulate. I got that for my lady and we train with .38 special.

Fyi, one LGS here in Jensen has it for $799 w/no laser and all black. The other in Port St. Lucie has the same one "on sale" for only $750. For $599 it would have been a done deal!

Here is the picture of the ad and it's still on sale. I've also included the picture of my pistol. I know they do transfers.imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1397271760.620894.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1397271783.010405.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1397271799.840091.jpg

Anyone read about the new Walther CCP? Sounds like the answer to my wish lust for the misses, including price!

I hadn't heard of it until your post. I just looked it up though. Not my cup of tea personally, but if you like it, more power to ya.

Will look into Sig but fear pricing stories you read about.

if all else fails, there is always the tried and true 38 snub. there are low recoil loads that are still more potent than a 380, 110 grain and even a 90 grain, going faster than 380 but still light on recoil, even in the airweight revolvers
