32 auto is also a soft shooter. Something like a Walther PP or clone there of.

might also want to look at the Walther PPQ IN 22LR. You can find tgem pretty cheap, and in my opinion it has one of the best stock triggers I've ever seen in a 22.

My ex had a problem with flinching when she shot a 9mm, but could hit bottle caps with a full size m&p 22 pistol. So we just loaded her 22 mags with stingers. My opinion is that its better to hit the target with a bunch of smaller rounds than miss with bigger ones

If you go with the above advice, take it literally because there are both Walther PPQ 22LR pistols (with 4 or 5 inch barrels) that are actual mimics for the Walther PPQ M2 -- and there are Walther P22 22LR pistols (with 4 or 5 inch barrels) that look a like a smaller PPQ. The former have fantastic reviews (e.g. check out the TTAG website for one), and the latter have horrible reviews for construction, ammo issues, etc. The bad thing is that the latter guns are sometimes mislabeled as PPQ models at internet firearm dealers. Checking the UPC number or ordering through an IP will help avoid a mistake.

I think we're going with the Ruger SR-22. The only walther ive seen in 22 was about 200 buck's. Not sure if that's the one your talking about but it was a good looking gun, she'd probably have to shoot it and like it better than the SR22 to want to switch.

22 mag will do the trick.....

I like .22WMR, but they have fierece muzzle blast, at least as much as typical SD centerfire cal. From the discussion, the noise is a major issue with wife.

If I'm incorrect, and recoil is the biggest issue, then consider a .22WMR with minimum 4 inch bbl .

Waiting on mine now. Another JLowe's visit soon for me.

My wife refuses to shoot anything I own. I don't currently own any 22's. She did used to shoot the Ruger Mark II pistol, but it's been gone, so giving it another chance. She also hates the noise....and the recoil. Everyone I know who has an SR22, loves it. Hopefully, she feels the same way about it.

In fact, smaller, lighter guns in general are worse. My favorite 'carry' gun to shoot is my SR9c, but being double-stack and significantly heavier and thicker than the LC9s, I rarely ever carry it.

To OP- I tried to get my wife to start with 9mm, and it was the wrong tack- let her shoot 22 for awhile- let her have a gun she 'likes,' so that she gets intimately familiar with it, and the mechanics of its operation, and proper shooting technique. Let good habits ingrain themselves FIRST, then she can upgrade. Starting her on something she's afraid to shoot, or just doesn't like shooting, will be the wrong idea.

You might want to spend a few bucks more on the SR-22 and get it with the threaded barrel so if you decide to get a suppressor, you'll be ready. If the Hearing Protection bill passes, the tax stamp will go away.
