Not to change your mind, but buy her her
first gun. Make it her choice and her gun. Just make sure it’s a well thought out choice and something she can shoot well and control it (clear jams in a semi).
You’re changing her from a semi to a revolver. My first choice for her first gun is a 22LR. Something like a Ruger MKll. I just bought a can of 4000 22 LR for the price of four boxes of 44special factory.
Being cheaper, a lot cheaper she will want to shoot even more. Then when you have her really hooked she’ll want you to buy MORE GUNS AND MORE GUNS and then, it’s a win win situation.
Women are smarter than we are, and in most cases they are, when we let them think so.
