Thoughts ? I have many female friends that carry a .22 pistol for self-defense . I'm considering getting one for my wife. She has some wrist issues and I figured the low recoil would help. The question it's which one? Walther P22 seams to be a good choice.
I'm considering getting one for my wife. She has some wrist issues and I figured the low recoil would help.
If she has "wrist issues" that may cause shooting to be uncomfortable, how much do you think she will really run through the pistol? Get her to compare a little .22LR to a .380 in a Bersa Thunder; she might go for the bigger round when she sees & feels the difference in firing them.All great points, but I also want a gun that is cheap for her to shoot.
Every person of the female pursuasion that I have taught marksmanship to instinctively knew where to place their rounds when presented with their first silhouette target...If all she can handle is the .22LR, let her know it is fair to aim for the eyes and testicles.
