I myself carry a model 37. I would stay away from all +P loads in any snubby. What's the point of shooting fire out the barrel and absorbing all the recoil/jump? I carry 115 grain hollow points. Put a couple of those in someone and they are going to be a hurtin' unit.

Something i havent seen mentioned here

If she doesnt have the finger strength for an auto, i highly doubt shes gonna have the strength for a hammerless revolver.

Its one of the issues we have had shopping a carry pistol for my wife. I have had her fondle many a revolver, including the lady smith .38 and not a one could she work the in DA.

It has been mentioned that she's been shooting revolvers regularly until recently.

When I got it back the yoke was bent and it was out of time. It was a wreck and it would have cost more to repair than it was worth.

Why does everyone think women need a snubnose? Unless she's going to carry it on her person, she'll shoot a Glock17 ten times better than any Snubby.

Maybe we just stereotype women into cute, traditional guns despite the inadequacies of said guns compared to modern options?

My wife can actually use both right and left "trigger" fingers to fire her hammerless revolver. This also helps with aim.
