    I have very limited experience with Walther's recent design .22 LR pistols. I cannot and do not recommend them; especially the P22 family.

    The Bersa .22 LR close copy of a Walther PP is a good pistol for cheap practical pistol (aka self-defense) practice. I have not evaluated the new Ruger pistol designed for this market.

    The Ruger 22/45 remains likely the most gun for the least money in a target/utility pistol catergory.

    You should have her try the sig Mosquito or the walther p22. I wanted either one of them but they were way too small for my hands.:D

    Thanks to all who have replied. I think we have narrowed our search down to the P22 and the bersa. Just doing some research now on function and reliability. Gunclinger a loose grip with my wife is definately not going to be an issue, its more a case of getting her to ease up a bit lol.

    When she wants to move up to a 9mm get her to try a Ruger SR9. I have short, stubby hands for a guy and it fits me well. You can flip the curved back of the grip insert for even more room. It is a double-stack (16+1, I think), yet it fits smaller hands well due to its design.

    As this question [of similar sorts] keeps popping up and Carver gives the correct answer......this answer should be in a 'sticky' or better yet......
    some way......when anyone asks [which gun?]....this answer should automatically be what Carver said......
    GO TO/TAKE HER TO......AND HOLD/HAVE HER HOLD AS MANY GUNS AS YOU CAN BEFORE YOU PURCHASE.....
    you will be glad you did......:D

    You may want to look at the Ruger Bearcat. I have one an carry it for yard work and fun, small, reliable, and fun to shoot.

    I have read 2 articles on the new Ruger Lite 22/45 and both were positive. You surely could get some nice grips that she would love for that and it sounds like a blast to handle. I would see if you could find one of these for her to check out. I love the Ruger and Browning semi-auto .22s period, can't go wrong with either one.
