Really tempted to go pick up a 22/45 lite for $350 bucks at the sportsmans warehouse on black friday, gf is turning 21 next year and wants to learn how to shoot a handgun competently before she goes for her HCP,she can hit with my p938 (she likes that gun,and wants one for a CC) pretty well,but not good enough for me to start her on it without worrying about her devoloping bad habits as that little gun is a handful dispite it's size. Also after she's learned I can drop a red dot on it and get into steel challenge! Other options are a SR22,which I don't think I'd be as happy with after she's outgrown it,but it is a smaller gun like she would be carrying,don't like that the safety is backwards from what the p938 is. My guy tells me to go with the full size 22/45 to learn her on as I learned on one,and It taught me great sight picture and trigger control,but I also want a gun she will like,and she likes my dad's p22 which is way more similar to SR22. What are y'all's thoughts on the situation?
