    But you usually have a better chance of finding a Colt, tho you'll pay more.

    What dan wesson??? they are a dime a dozen around my way. I have had 6-7 run through my shop this year good solid guns but nothing close to a colt IMO. Now there 1911's are a whole new story.

    Probably at first involvement, the firearm's look would be appealing...the next decision maker would probably be the feel in one's hand, but all that can be changed by 'shooting'.OMO

    Old 0311 keep us updated, it will be interesting to keep up with this as she advances, and develops more of a feel for different variations in actions and ergos.

    With the revolvers in this case, all that would matter is hand feel - shape of grip, shape and location of trigger, etc. If she likes the Charter best, get her the Charter.

    Exactly. I would have thought she would pick the Ultralight or Airweight, because they are lighter/easier to handle, or the Ruger with the least recoil.

    I wonder how many of us subconsciously eliminate brands because of their make, or country of origin. I admit to a degree I am guilty of that.

    What's cool is that she is a very scientific person. She is working on her Masters in Geology so her decisions are based on HER perception of what works best for her not what is the latest fad, or what us gun people would advise to be the best.

    I have another friend who is also kind of a new shooter. I think I will do the same test to see what her first choice would be.

    I am a Ruger man, through and through, I love my Security Six and will be looking for an SP101 as soon as the money comes together

    Im still fuzzy on this,but if going strictly by feel,with no knowledge of a companys reputation for reliability,i would probably pick a 1911.I can shoot you with my eyes closed,thats the comfort level.
