Not trying to derail the thread, but I'm looking for a gun for my wife also. Over the weekend we went with a friend and shota .22 semi-auto, then .32, a .380, .357 revolver and a .45 semi-auto. She did well with all of them but took a shine to a .38 snubby "airweight" at Buck and Bass. Anyone know ifone of the Charter Armslike posted in the link by biggamefishrcan be purchased in P'cola or nearby? Due to simplicity I think she'd be better off with a revolver than a semi-auto. Any helpful advice appreciated.
