I am so inaccurate with revolvers that I haven't even thought of purchasing one.

Quite timely for me, just went to the range with my wife so she could try a few pistols including a 642 snub nose. She really liked the snubnose, until she shot it. Even then she tried really hard to enjoy and like it, but just finally gave in. She couldn't get into the trigger pull, which on this one is about 40 lbs and 4 feet lol. Comfortable in her hand but not when shooting, and she only shoot two +P rounds and said that's enough.

I supported her wanting a revolver for many of the reasons stated already, but she ended up liking the M&P full size more, and shot better with it. We are still "shopping" for her, maybe another revolver will strike her fancy, of course she doesn't like my 686 either.........

But I bet all 6 shots went through the same hole in the air.

THIS - and I bet she could easily shoot 357 out of one. My 4" Rhino recoils like a well sprung 1911. Even more so hanging a light off of it. --JB

I only own smith snub noses because of the trigger. I think it's the best on the market. My wife uses it and has put hundreds of rounds of .38 special. I load them full power 158gr wadcutters at 860 fps. She is dead on with it. We shot bowling pins together and the area to hit it to knock it off the table with a snub is pretty small. We used to have snub matches in Wisconsin. She recently graduated to a Kimber Solo Compact and she loves it. To me it kicks harder than any 9mm I ever shot. But then again she likes my .308 bolt action.

Practice makes perfect.

If your wife shoots well with a Desert Eagle, stock up on 50 AE and give her a hand cannon. Whatever works.

Woman with hand canon > Viagra
