that can't be, i bought my H&R 32 break top from an old guy that said that gun was used by billy the kid. & i only paid $400 for mine

snub nose revolvers can be a b*tch to shoot accurately & she might get discouraged so that's something to consider. compact auto's seem to have the same issue. maybe start with something like Ruger sr9c or P95? best thing may be to take her to a gun shop so she can handle a bunch of different guns & find out which one she likes
All I've had today is like 6 gummi bears & some scotch

Glock 26 is nice and small, but it is still a breeze to shoot. The neighbors ten year old boy loves to shoot mine, and he weighs probably a buck-ten soaking wet.

The Ruger SP101 is a nice little 357 revolver. It is stainless steel so it has some weight. Very tame with 38 special +P and still give you the option of mag loads. 28 oz fully loaded and about 25 oz empty. Carries 5 rounds and is available with or without the hammer spur. 2", 3" and 4" barrels available. Laser grips are available from Crimson Trace. the lightweight snubs are a joy to carry but can be a handful to shoot. Stay away from compensated barrels on SD guns. They will blind you at night. If you want a light weight, look at the Ruger LCR in 38 spl.
