IF you can find your way to a store that will let you try them on it will be well the effort (and looking a bit strange taking your belt half off in the middle of a store) I currently carry in my backpack most of the time (not legal in all states) because I have small kids who are grabby and naughty and sometimes insist on being carried. stinkin punks.

I second what Jess said. Trying to find the right holster is a game of trial and error. If you can go into a store and try a few you can eliminate some questions right off the bat and save yourself some money and time down the road. Good holsters aren't cheap, neither is a good gun belt if you plan to carry IWB(inside waist band), the belt is a must.

No offense but for safety, I think your first priority should be a good self-defense revolver. (Unless you're a hit-person for the mob!)

A .22 is rarely referred to as a defensive weapon. They can kill, but are not likely to incapacitate an attacker quickly enough to prevent you from being harmed. In a revolver, I would consider the .327 (yes that is smaller than .357) magnum to be the minimum acceptable caliber for legitimate defensive purposes.

While a .22 can be deadly it is usually not considered a primary defense weapon.

So if I understand your parameters right, you are small with small hands and want to carry something (preferably a revolver) for protection. A .38 snub nose lightweight revolver would be the thing to think about. It is smaller with smaller grips than a larger framed revolver. For easy handling, and close up use that would be worth considering. You need to be able to hold onto it securely and be able to hit your target with it consistantly during practice. You really would have to try out a couple. They are all different. Some may fit right in your purse (depending on your purse) They will all feel different depending on model and grips. You will need to go to the range and practice, practice, practice.

Is there any way you can try one out? A range that rents handguns for range use, a friend that has one, etc. (Don't make a decision based on a beat up range handgun but just to get the general feel of it.)

Just some thoughts. I apologize for getting a little off topic.

OC

If you need to pull a self defense gun, you are having a very bad day. Someone is trying to kill you. Why would you not want to pull a larger caliber revolver? Self defense is all about stopping the threat and a .22 doesn't do that well.

I've not shot one but I hear the .327's are good choices and with modern ammo, a good 'ol .38 special is a valid self defense revolver choice.

Default Thank you all!

Sorry for not getting back with you all. Long work days since the layoffs have left me with going to bed early and such.
As it goes, I did take into concideration all that you have informed me with.
I did go and search out a smaller more efficiant weapon, many to be exact.
What won out becuase of the smaller size and more punch, was the lavender lady 38 special. It seems to be doing well, my targets are being hit with little effort, it is easy to clean and well, fits rather good in my wee hands.
As far as a holster went, that was indeed a long and still going on process. I use a fanny pack as of now, along with it being in my clothing. Looking at a 1911 as of right now...wish list of sorts.
You all helped greatly!
Love and hugs!

Now THATís what Iím talking about. A new member asked a question and received a bunch of well thought out answers and suggestions. She took the suggestions and followed up and made a fantastic choice. God I love this place and the people in it.
