Researching Revolvers, I give up !!!
Ok, My wife went to Shooters World to take her CCW class. She passed both written and shooting portion of the test. Now all she needs id to have the Federal Background Check. This won't be an issue because she is squeaky clean as well and already went through the NICS check when she bought her Khar 9M.
Asked her how it went and she replied "My Pully Backy Thing " was hard to do. I said "What ???" oh, you mean the slide ?
So I felt that getting her a revolver will help her in firearms.
What do I look for in a revolver ? Do they come in 9M. She is quite petite, 5ft 2 and 100lbs.
She can handle the kick of 9M with her Kahr TP9, but my 45 is too much for her.
I really don't even know where to start, what ammo should shoot and so on.
This will be her carry weapon.
The old standby - steel chief's special
For a small revolver that won't recoil too badly, it is hard to beat the all steel S&W J frame snubbies in .38 special. They are so small that they are easily concealed on the body or in a purse, and you have the option of DA or thumb cocking for SA. They cost about $400 to $500 slightly used, and you can pick your color, blue or stainless.
