I am looking for house gun for mom. She's using a Buckmark 22 now. 1903 caught my eye because it was surprisingly easy to rack, has a decent trigger and has a layout similar to the Buckmark. If it is small enough for her hands, how would it stack up sgainst .32/.380 Colt Hammerless 1908?
I have a chance to get one semi-ugly for $260 with three mags.

The 1903 has an excellent reputation as a self-defense weapon - I've been looking for one for a while to add to my collection of pocket pistols and that price is certainly one of the lower prices I've seen.

You can check the Colt Autos homepage for more detailed info:

I find them to be reliable and accurate little handguns.
