    New from Central NJ

    Hi There.I'm primarily a .22 bullseye and high power rifle competitor but joined this forum to gain knowledge about home defense handguns. I do have a 3" S&W 66 357 and am looking for something for my wife. I think she's leaning towards a Smith 351PD (22 magnum), I'm trying to put her on a Ruger SP101. She has shot a Colt Police Positive in 38 S&W before so I know she can handle the SP101 with 38+p. With the info available on this forum I think she"ll see my way. The pistol will not be used for concealed carry

    Welcome to the forum and best wishes on your search for the right defensive guns for both yourself and your wife.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.

    22 mag is not the worst thing esp in a wheel gun esp now that more companies are making SD rounds for it .. A pmr30 would be even better 31 round of 22 mag with no recoil.. But no 15 round mags so that is out ..

    I say let here fire one and make sure she likes it esp in a state where it is that involved to get a handgun ... She simply might not like how it feels even if she has fired 38 before .. I think it is a nice gun but ...

    Also here is two links she might like great for women shooters

    oh and welcome from AZ


    I would also add let her try a LCR or LCRX both nice guns with very nice triggers and smaller guns too ...
