I am a big fan of this gun and it has preformed well within the parimiters of what I thought it would. It runs on everything and is accurate enough for pistol training. If you are working with silouetts or ringing steel this is the pistol for you. Also alot of fun to plink cans etc.
If you are wanting a gun to shoot the smallest groups on a paper target off a rest this might not be the 22 for you.
As a first pistol for a young lady I can't see it getting much better.
