    My wife decided on getting a handgun a couple of weeks ago and had a lot of trouble using the slide on all semi autos she tried.
    She finally settled on a Ruger SP101 .357 and just loves it (likes .38 spl.). She also got a couple of speedloaders and is happy with them.
    Practices with it most every evening!
    Revolvers are usually good right or left handed.
    Plus Charter Arms makes a left handed snub nose. Reliable, fair priced and easy to learn manual of arms. Just make sure he practices with it until he he accurate at 21 feet.

    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.
    Thoughts: Justifiable self defense (A.O.J.).
    Explain: How does disarming victims reduce the number of victims?

    Are there any issues with the price ?? If not, an H&K p2000 or the compact version p2000sk. Ambi-controls and an absolute pleasure to conceal and shoot...Good Luck.
