Haven't posted very much, but need help. Can someone suggest a place where I and a young lady of 30 can go in the DFW area to try shooting different pistols. She has never been interested in shooting of any kind until lately. I gave her a .22 cal Ruger automatic and she doesn't like it. Her husband is a Texas State Trooper, but she wants dear old dad to go shoot and pick out a pistol, I think that's pretty cool. My suggestion is the lady Smith .38 revolver.

I got my daughter a S&W Airweight several years ago. It's basically the same gun. Her's shot very well and I was surprised at how soft it shot,being so light. I know the bullet Trap in Plano and Eagle Gun Range in Lewisville both rent a number of handguns if you want to try some different ones out. You might call first to make sure they still do.

Bullet Trap in Plano has a good selection of pistols that can be rented and fired on their range.

Thanks guys, I think we will go there this week. I just got back from Kuwait and getting ready to crash. Bullet Trap sounds like the place.

Sounds like your on right track Get her really good with Ruger then Go with L smith/or and it will all fall into place..Start small and move up and don't crowd her..Make it fun Balloons /cans/etc...

I would skip the Bullet Trap and go to Frisco Gun Club. Its a very nice place with a good selection and state of the art. Same prices if not a lot cheaper on some stuff

Eagle Gun Range in Lewisville is very female friendly, might take a look at them as well.

I bought my wife a Ruger LCR and she likes it, funnily enough though when we went shooting everyone (girls and guys) liked shooting my full size SW Sigma over any other pistol I had.

Thanks for the suggestions, I think we will have fun checking out these places. I'm glad she wants to start shooting.

The S&W Lady Smith is a perfect choose in my opinion. My wife has one. Easy, simple and safe to operate.

What didn't she like about the Ruger?

Hard gun not to like.
