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.
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.
