I used to shoot an HnR with two cylinders. It was a great gun,but i got sooo many complaints about how loud it was at the range...not that i cared. I want something my wife can shoot... Tell me about trigger pull and weight.

wow. i dont know the exact weight but my single six has one of the best triggers in my safe!. its very crisp and light.

i also have a HnR but it needs some repairs at the moment.. the single six blows the HnR out of the water

Is it one a novis/beginner would find friendly? My wife is a liteweight shooter and to hold a somewhat heavy pistol may be a deal breaker. I plan on taking her to the OKC gunshow and see what trips her trigger. I know with time she will upgrade but i want her first experience to set a good tone. Thanks for your input. I am leaning towards an autoloader like a Browning buckmark.

okay, well i dont know many of those that accept both .22lr and .22 mag. but ruger mk2 or 3, and buckmarks are nice. have her check out a ruger sr22 if you want something that weighs a little less. my single 6 is a little heavy. but oh so nice. my wife has the sr22 and she likes it, as do i.

Believe it or not i had some range time with the sr22 just this past Saturday. I shot a brick of remingtons LR through it...it was a nice experience i must say. Out of 500 rounds i had maybe 5misfeeds. Which i atribute to the cosmoline coating (used to inhibit brass corrosion). You are right but the site plain is short and may be a problem for novis shooters. Your thoughts on this? Satajet.

We have a Ruger Single action .22, A Ruger MKII .22 auto, and a Chiappa
22/45 .22 cal. pistols. My favorite of the three is the MKII which is super accurate and has a nice trigger pull from the factory. A few people seem to have a problem putting it back together after field stripping but it is a very simple process. The Ruger .22 is a dandy with both a .22lr cylinder and a .22mag cylinder and also accurate. The Chiappa 22/45 is accurate but has a horrible, hard trigger pull, I modified mine for better pull but it is not the quality of Rugers.
