Trying to nail down a compact carry piece for my mother. Took her shooting and had her shoot my LCP, which she didn't find too offensive. She really doesn't trust autos or her ability to manipulate the slide, so I'm looking for a revolver. She was able to handle a LCR at the range shop and didn't like the feel of it. I kind of agree, with the 'fatness', or 'roundness' of the grip. I was just reading something about it being designed by ergonomics software... whatever. Any customization will, I'm sure, have to be done by me. I don't mind customizing my own firearms to my preferences but I doubt her explanation of her preferences will translate. I want to stay light and compact because I could see this quickly turning into something that never leaves the house... which doesn't fly as it is a legitimate and imminent security concern which I think has scared her into wanting to carry.
Wondering if you guys could provide any feedback on a 340PD. Maybe if someone can relate to my mother's feelings about the grips and lend an opinion on the smith. I'm not seeing any in stock around here and I don't want another revolver for my collection should I order one :)
I'm also open to other suggestions. I like the fact that the 340PD is .357/.38SP as she already owns a GP100.
