Default .22 revolver for my grandma

So my grandma is wanting a .22 revolver to carry in her purse. She has a few other pistols but she cannot handle the kick of even a .38 any more. She had a stroke a few years ago but is recovered from it pretty well but she is still kinda weak mainly just bc quit frankly she is old. This will be just a "get off me gun" that will basically just live in her purse and never see the light of day. Looked at the little American arms but they are a little to small plus not to think like this but eventually hopefully a long time from now I will end just getting the gun back so dont want something that ends up being completely useless. She is dead set on a single action revolver.....any recommendations? Sig has a nice one but I am not looking to be spending 300+ on it. Trying to stay more in the 200 or less range being what it is.

Default Look at Taurus

I'm not familiar with the model designations of the .22s but I'll bet you can find something in your price range from Taurus.

no that one isnt a revolver but it is nice. mosquito. I buy a lot of guns but have never really looked at the prices of the little snub type .22 revolvers good grief they are high for what they are. Was expectinga lot of options for around 200$ but I aint found one yet. The tiny American arms ones are cheapest I have seen but they to little.

Surprisingly, most of the snub .22s are more expensive than their .38 counterparts.
I just sold a High Standard snub a couple of months ago that would have been perfect.
I would say look for a High Standard Sentinel but the snubs go for a lot more than the 4" and 6" barrels.
And you might have a problem finding a .22 snub that is single action.

Sounds like you need a Saturday Night Special. Bad as I hate say it, You might want to look at some of the Pawn Shops or hit a Gun Show.

Are you sure you mean single action and not double action? She will have to cock it for every shot which may be difficult and time consuming for an elderly lady.

I agree but she says she wants to have to cock it. Scared of the trigger getting pulled in purse. Realistically even if something was to happen it is extremely unlikely she'd ever get at it anyways. She just wants it in her purse.

My wife has a ruger lcp but even with light loads the 38 is more than she can shoot. Arthritis and stroke her hands are not strong. She's already got a few 38s and can't shoot em. I really think a .22 is gonna be her only option.
