Ruger Six series revolvers are built like a tank, I have a nice blued 6" .357, that I've had since the late 80's and picked up a very nice Stainless 6" .357, from a member here this past spring.

I have a Ruger GP101 that has been terrific. Bought it used 20+ years ago and it has been perfect. Great wheel gun

I would recommend a used Colt Trooper Mark III DA in .22 magnum to start. As her proficiency and confidence evolve, end up with .357 mag.

Nonsense.
Shoot 38s out of the 357 for practice. There are MANY successful self defense shoots with untrained people on large guns. Self defense distance inside a dwelling is minimal.

What is lacking is the will to actually use it. That cannot be trained.
