So my son and my daughter are interested in shooting. My son is 12 and has been able to handle a 9mm and a .45, but my daughter is 8. I am worried that even the 9mm is going to be too much for her to handle safely. She has shot a .22 before and was able to manage it. I have never looked at .22 pistols so I don't really know where to start. Any direction or thoughts would be helpful. I am looking for something reliable, and of good quality. This probably won't be something that I would trade/sell in the future, so something that is going to last. Certainly nothing from a carry standpoint, but nothing too large/heavy either. Once I get some direction, I'll head to the LGS and check some things out. Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
