    for a 22 i would suggest a revolver, a smith 317 maybe. if someone worked on it properly the trigger could be made easier. what you might consider is a sig mosquito too. my wife can operate the controls on one of those without problems. be she cannot rack the slide on most others and cannot pull double action triggers very well. although i haven't had any experiance with the mosquito

    If you desire a perfect 22 - or near to it - a Model 41 S&W is the gun. However, it is too large for carry. My wife uses a Glock 30 - 45 ACP. Woman can use larger calibers VERY effectively.

    I would step up to at least a 380 or 9mm. Go to a rental shop (or a friend) and let her fire various weapons. Then consider the maximum caliber that he can get good shot placement with and run with it.

    .380 in whatever frame fits her hand, and tickles her fancy.

    Kel-tec P- 32 or Bersa .32 or 380, both are fairly light, reliable and manageable.

    My P22 outshoots my Sig considerably and I am a SIG lover. I use the CCI mini mag as recommended....any suggestions. I keer her well oiled. Also failures to feed frequently with both springs. Guin is oiled as recommended
