Kel-Tec should make mags for it like the Hex-Mag True 10/30. Pop out the insert, add a 30 round spring, and you're good to go.

I don't get it.

I dated a really small girl that went straight to 9mm and shot great.

I knew another girl who couldn't even hit the paper at 5 yards, even with a .22lr.

I think none of it involves physically handling the recoil. It's all mental. Being afraid of the next round going off if what makes them miss. Dry firing is crucial in the beginning as is transitioning to shooting live as if you were dry firing, i.e. pretending that there is no live round when you pull the trigger. If you shoot live you you shoot dry, there will be no misses from anticipating recoil.

The worst thing is when girls mistakenly try to pick smaller guns, not realizing that the recoil will be much worse with less weight to absorb the impact.

I think .22lr is a great starter pistol, but a full sized 9mm is nothing a small girl can't handle once she isn't afraid to shoot it.

I don't know about that idea. Internal bleeding isn't going to put you down quick. Heart and lung shots might though, provided that the .22lr doesn't lack penetration through ribs.

Unless you hit brain or heart, the only thing that's going to be stopping them is the fear of being shot.

Unless she's getting a concealed carry permit, which is extremely unlikely since you're in Maryland, why is she going with a handgun? Why not a PCC? Unless she's trying to clear a house (unlikely), a PCC is a lot easier to shoot, it's a lot quieter than a handgun, and if she's getting arthritic, it's a lot easier to work the action. Get her on a 10/22, and work up from there. Hi Point carbines are actually very reliable and not too heavy. Or if you insist on Glock mags, the Sub2000 in either of the calibers its in works great.

Or an AR-15.

Less recoil to me.

Shot placement is certainly important. Caliber should also be a consideration. Don't rely on the venerable .25 ACP, which has had problems penetrating leather jackets.

That's why I prefer my threats to wear Members Only jackets.

Alabama hunter shoots down 820-pound wild hog in front yard

Quote:
Seago grabbed his .38-caliber revolver and went back onto the front porch.

Seago told AL.com that it took three shots to take the hog down before it hit the ground.

"By the time I got in a position to shoot, the hog was about 12 yards away," he said. "Cruiser (his dog) was out of my line to the hog so I fired."
Shot placement and multiple shots?
