The SR22 is a great gun. Your dtr. will love it
I bought one for my dtrs. back in June of 2012, liked it so much, that I bought one for myself this past June.
I had a 22/45 for many yrs., also a great gun, but definitely harder to break down and clean. I shot the barrel out of it after more than 30,000 rounds. Sent it back to Ruger with the required $15.00 check. They put a brand new barrel and extractor on it, and returned it and my check...lol Can't ask for better customer service than that.
When you get the money, don't hesitate to pick up the SR22, she will love it. Both of ours shoot everything.

As always, stay safe.

I've had my SR22 since March 2012 and love it. It eats Remington Golden Bullets, Federal Champion bricks, and CCI Stingers without a hiccup. When I initially got it (my first 22lr pistol BTW) I did have a couple fail to feeds and a few jams but have had NONE since ~ first 500 rounds. However, I found that there's a few things to keep in mind with that little pistol. Keep it clean, especially the ramp and chamber...leave just a very slight film of clean oil on the feed-ramp after cleaning...., and, just because the SR22 is a lightweight, don't limp-grip or limp-wrist your shots. It's my skills 'review' and 'warm-up' pistol on every trip to the range before I load up the big boys. It's definitely a sweet shooter and your lady will love it.

SR22 was the first 22 pistol I owned and my daughter started on this when she was 11. Ran about 10K rounds through it shooting just about every brand of ammo out there. Probably averaged less than one ftf/fte per hundred+ rounds. Got her shooting a 22/45 lite now but she seems to have preferred the SR22. There's a lot of good 22 target pistols out there (Buckmark, MK111, Sig 1911/22, Mosquito, etc) BUT they all tend to be heavier. Another option in a smaller, cheaper 22 is the Phoenix HP22A, it's smaller and about the same weight with minimal recoil. Quite reliable and only about $139, you can also get a kit with another mag and longer barrel for about 30 bucks. My daughter has no trouble shooting it.

A little update,as if anyone really cares lol, I went to an indoor range with two of my friends to go shoot. One of them brought his Ruger sp95?? and his sr22. The 9mm double fed twice on me when I tried it out. It's a nice pistol, but I really wanted to try the sr22. I got to shoot atleast 100rds thru it, not one problem. Very nice piece. I can't wait to buy it for my daughter, she's gonna LOVE it!

Me too! Just waiting on a motorcycle sale to go through for some extra money. I'll take a pic of her after I give it to her.

I got one at Christmas. For a short barrel it is pretty accurate. The lack of recoil will make it a good kids learner. I like shooting it if I can get ammo. I am looking forward to teaching my grandson to shoot it.

I have a SR22. Great gun! 0 issues and I have fed it many different kinds of ammo. Very easy to clean. Can't go wrong with this one!
