I need some advice from the more experanced members.
My mother and I went to the local range last Saterday.
she was not comfortable with the grip on my XD40SC so I rented a 357 6 shooter (nice grips I thought) and she shot some 38s out of it.
after 18 rounds her sholder was buggin her and she knew it was time to stop. I know that shooting more often will build up the mucles that she has not use. but she also stated the recoil was a bit much for her older frame. she is around 63 now.
I shot off the rest of the 50 round box and we stoped by the gun shop at the range. she fondled a few and fell in love with a S&W M&P 9mm compact with crimson trace grips. she fell out of love looking at the $740 price tag.
now my question, what is there that is avalable in a low recoil autoloader that has a laser option. and it does not cost $700.
it may have been the ruber grip on the M&P that she liked so much.
I know that a .32 or a .380 dos not rate as high as a 9mm for self defence but what you have is 1000 times better then what you don't.
So, what options are avalable?
her first shot was bulls eye.
her las gun experance was 30 years ago, and that was a .22LR
