Its better to be backed up with something that she can shoot accurately... For me, i think it was a smart decision. Bunker

I've been kinda eyeing the Charter Pathfinder snubbie in .22 WMR.
A friend has one small revolver that is in .357..... and he will buy lunch for anyone who will shoot 5 shots thru it.... talk about a hand killer... it's pure severe pain to shoot that gun.

Did you let your wife try 148gr wad cutters instead of some carry ammo in the 38sp?? Big difference in the snap in the hand between wadcutters and defence ammo along with 3 or 400fps.

That is a sweet looking little revolver. I'm more drawn to the 38 special, but I have limited revolver experience. Can the 22 wmr be a capable SD round?
The .22 WMR will do the job. The main thing is that your wife carries it and shoots it on a regular basis in order to get good hits, which from what you said she does that. Are there better options, of course, but I don't think they are going to sit there and let her shoot at them just to see how good it is.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

I like it. Your wife is certainly correct about the 442 recoil. My wife carries the 442 and it does have a kick. Congratulations to your wife.

When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.
Try the new hornady critical defense ammo .
