A brief synopsis of why this is becoming such a chore for me, that I'm turning to you, my friends, for help: My wife is an big girl, standing 6 ft tall. Her hands are as big as mine, but proportioned differently (me - big palm, shorter fingers, her - smaller palm, longer fingers,) so that my Sig P220 (Which fits my hand like it was built just for me!) is too broad for her. She likes the way my S&W mod 14 with a 6 inch barrel handles, but due to her Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, the gun is just too barrel heavy for her, resulting in only about 12 accurate shots on the range before her wrists become too unsteady to support accurate shooting. We're going to be taking our CCW course within the next few weeks, and I would like to get her her CCW weapon before (if not soon after) we become licensed. She's now talking about getting a .22 LR as her primary CCW gun, and this just has me gritting my teeth, thinking that if she ever really needs this gun, it may fail her, and I might be wifeless. On the other hand, I understand her thinking - they're light weight, and light recoil, which would enable her to get rounds accurately on target. But I just can't wrap my head around a .22 LR (or even a .22 magnum) being a primary CCW gun. I had thought to get her a Beretta 92 in 9mm, but I now find myself wondering if something like a snubby .38, ported to help reduce recoil, might better fit her need. Suggestions? And thank you in advance.
