    I personally would not. I like my SP101 too much.

    Lol i was thinking no too but wanted other options. The grip being too wide is a huge concern because she has small hands. Good advice there. She loves her Taurus pt140 pro but scared me by forgetting what button to push to rack the slide, quickly jumped to conclusions about a hi cap mag and my buddy has been bothering me to trade the ruger so i figured consider it at least. I just need to take her shooting more....OBVIOUSLY

    Yes because in a week you may not be able to get the G21 but could purchase a new revolver.

    This is a good time to consider the trade.

    I'm against gun trading in general - it's too sad. Save up and buy a G21... you can never have too many guns.

    I think you've answered your original question. Your wife has a pistol she already loves; sounds like she just needs more training and practice to build up her confidence in "running" the gun proficiently.

    i wouldn't make that trade if she has small hands. The grip of the g21 isn't friendly to people with small hands in my experience. It's fine for me, but I have big hands. It's not comfortable for my wife to fire or handle.

    In one word... "Ain't no way in hades because you're going to miss it and wish you had it back". Well, that was two words anyway.

    I'd keep the Ruger. A revolver can sit in a drawer for years and when it's needed it's ready to go to work.

    Unless she is half Sasquatch, I don't see a G21 working for her.
