Browning Buckmark Micro URX.

Comfortable, lightweight, accurate, great trigger, great sights, superb magazines....

Actually, any Buckmark will work nicely, but the Micro is nice and compact..

Here is a pic (LINK (http://www.browning.com/products/catalog/firearms/detail.asp?cat_id=051&type_id=408&value=006B&cattype=051408))

I would suggest the Browning Buckmark, or a heavier Ruger Mark III with the 5.5" bull barrel. The Smith 22A would be okay as well.

I generally like heavier 22's because they shoot nicely. But I'm a guy. So suggestions lean toward something lighter even though I threw in my personal favorite for the money, the Ruger.

If you choose a semiauto for her,get a ruger mk 2 or mk3. In double action revolvers,a s&w airweight kit gun or taurus Ti,and single action,ruger super single six is only viable choice. All these choices are assuming she wants a .22.

My wife was afraid/did not like shooting my 9mm or .38. I bought her a .22 Beretta Neos for about $200. After a few weeks with the .22, she now shoots the 9mm and even .40 with out a problem. In fact the .40 is her favorite.
Try the Neos.

I just picked up a Walther p22 this week as the small grip fits my girlfriends hands perfectly.

Was at the range last week w/my Buckmark & 1911. Guy next to me was shooting his .40. He let his wife try it - and one shot "cured" her of wanting a second shot. She had also tried his airweight .38. Didn't want anything to do with pistols.

I heard the conversation during a "cease fire," and offered my .22 for her to try. I showed her the difference between the .40, the .38, and the .22. She agreed to try it...

...and she had a lot of fun emptying the mag downrange when the range was called open again. I offered to let her shoot for a while, but she declined. However, she and her husband did ask where to get a Buckmark like mine.

Perhaps I helped win back a new shooter. Good call, going for the .22. What's the worst thing that could happen - she could still hate it, in which case YOU get a new .22 :D

Beretta NEOS.
My daughter carry's a 1911 nad won't go near any .380. Says they recoil too much.

My wife loves my K-22 revolver but she has always been more comfortable with a revolver over a semi-auto.
