Re: pistol suggestions
my suggestion would be a nice revolver perhaps a ruger, smith or taurus. 38/357 caliber. heavy enough to soak up recoil, option of using in single action, no slide racking. fool proof, timeless, reliability is top notch. less costly than most 1st rate automatics barrel lenght from 2 in to 6inch. a 3 inch barrel being in my opinion the best for both home or carry. the newer lite weight guns from smith and taurus pack easy but they have more recoil. my wife has the choice of 50 different handguns to pick from. she has tried most of them and has settled on a colt single action army, in 44 special 4 3/4 in barrel she has small hands and likes the idea of having to cock the gun for each shot. thats her house gun. when she feels the need to toss one in her purse to travel she has picked a colt cobra in 38 spl.
