Mom said she wants me to find her a pistol in .22 WMR for her to carry in her purse. What pistol do you recommend for me to get her? I wish she would at least go with a .380 but she wants almost zero recoil or nothing and we all know something (.22 WMR) is better than nothing. I have my eye on a couple, just want some opinions.

Smith and Wesson 351PD. Not cheap but I like the feel of this gun.

S&W makes several double action revolvers that will work for the stated purpose. Like you said it is not my first choice but beats nothing by a long ways.

Ruger LCR is another.

That's a pretty good idea. Don't have to worry about anything except pulling the trigger. Rimfires are known for having bad rounds. With a revolver, you just pull the trigger again to go past a bad round. The downside is limited capacity and reloading. You might consider getting two of them: one in a 22 to practice with and then a 38 spl to carry.

My opinion. Take her somewhere where you can rent guns and let her try them out. I tried to buy my wife guns twice and she hated both of them. Once she picked her gun she was happy.

Have her try on a Walther pk380, Very easy to rack the slide and I hear not much more recoil if any than a .22. I am told that most women relay like them, My wife on the other hand with small hands could not operate the fire arm comfortably.

Ruger LC. Just bought my wife a LC9s and I am pretty happy with it. My wife is too.

22WMR limits your choice. S&W is costly and only a couple of models have 2" barrels.

Ruger LCR has a stout trigger. Many women do not have the index finger strength. Plus the DA makes it difficult to be accurate with trigger issue.

Might get a Taurus or Charter Arms, both have/had models with 2" barrels.
