The SR22 is a good pistol. It's highly functional, quality, and also quite affordable. The downside is that you're getting a gun with nearly subcompact barrel length and resulting sight radius. That doesn't mean it can't be accurate, but it's a certainty that accuracy will be more difficult than with many similar guns.

If the SR22 fits her way better than anything else, buy it! If she loves it, she'll probably put in the work to become proficient with it, and will be a better shooter as a result of that process.

But if she's more of a casual shooter, there may well be better alternatives...that could include rimfires like the SW MP22 or Ruger 22/45 (two that have impressed me), or a bigger centerfire.

The simple answer is to buy her what she'll enjoy. <---Underlined is an easy (and always correct) answer that can be difficult to sort out from your perspective. The SR22 is an excellent gun; but it doesn't come without it's own set of shortcomings, depending on the expectations of the shooter. I love and own the Ruger MK3 22/45, but I'll probably buy an MP22 and SR22 in the near future. I like all three guns. I'd prefer the 22/45 above the other two.

Yeah Sweeper, that's what I was thinking too. She really likes the way it feels in her hand, plus she had a choice between an all black model or the model with the silver slide. She likes the silver slide one, so just waiting on some money to arrive and we'll be shooting side by side! Thanks for all y'all's opinions, btw.

NICE!!!

I remember my Adopted Sister was 12( a first cousin who's parents were killed in a suspicious car accident, my Mom & Dad were her Godparents. In our Faith is a very serious commitment.) and she Loved the 22's and my Dad's Off Duty Colt 38Spl.'s,..but she could not shoot the 45's...she shoots a little these days, she's a Head nurse at Bagram AB Hospital...

I love my sr22. Mine prefers mini-mags or equivalent and a good cleaning after each session or it has feeding issues. Other than that very reliable and accurate. You and her will both be happy

They ran 50 rounds through it and when I picked it up they had me run another 50 rounds through it. Worked flawlessly. The next 300 rounds as well. Then the last time I had trouble again. So mine can be a little finicky at times.
I love my SR22. Great plinker and so much fun. I too had problems with failure to feed but Ruger has by far the best customer service. I called them, explained, they emailed me a shipping label, and fixed the issue.
If she likes the way it feels you can't go wrong.

Did you give it to her yet? Hope you capture the look on her face when you do!

Thank you for doing your part teaching the next generation.😊
