I also don't see much point in this. I am no fan of the 22 mag though. I guess for people who can't handle the recoil of 38 special it might be good. Are there really people out there who can't handle it with a few hours of training though? I imagine you would have a disability of some sort to be in that position.
Plenty of petite women and long time AARP members shooting 38 specials and even 357 mags without issues.
