So I'm looking to get a revolver for my wife. She does not shoot much, in fact I've only gotten her to come out 5 times! But she is willing to take the class and get a CWP and put in more range time after some convincing. What's your opinion on a good revolver for a smaller woman?
I'm thinking they are going for a bit more now And I like a DA revolver for the simplicity and also because my wife struggled racking the slide on my kel-tec pf9 and I think it would be easier for her to maneuver. I really need to get her to a LGS to feel out some different guns I guess. Have you guys or gals run into any mid caliper guns with a lighter slide?
Smaller hands, fingernails, less strength to rack a slide, less familiarity with how a semi-auto works, those are all reasons why many women prefer a revolver, and why for these women a revolver is a great choice.
