I checked into them, but you have to be a member to use the range and rent.
I don't know how experienced your wife is at shooting, but if she's a novice... a light weight 38 snub is NOT a great place to start.
They are GREAT guns once you've mastered the basics of trigger control and sight alignment, but not real easy to learn on.
If she's an experienced shooter, then yeah, an airwieght (or similar) snub 38 would be a good choice.
She served for 8yrs and was a very good shooter. She shoots very well with my Ruger and was very accurate with my friend's FS .40
