I started my wife on a browning buckmark. She liked shooting it a lot. I started her on a 9mm tiny taurus too soon and was turned off and scared because of the recoil. Since the recoil scared her she would flinch and make it jam.

After a few different ones shi now has a brand new sig mosquito .22. She will shoot my 9mm and .40, but only if she has too in a situation. She prefers just to stick to .22 at the range though.

Good point , we have some targets set up at a friends place just 5 mins away from my house with a 20 ft long 8ft tall embankment that he made to keep stray bullets from happening . Cans may be a bit of fun for her also , we also have some 1/4" corrugated plastic body type targets we use . Getting the .22 pistol is the problem , I think my dad may have a .25 that may work good for what were trying to get accomplished
