My wife is looking for a new gun. I'm not sure for what function. Maybe concealed carry and shooting (IDPA) and some instructing (NRA basic pistol, and both inside the home and outside the home self-defenses, often teaching other women). She already has: Ruger GP100, .357mag Beretta 92 compact, 9mm Springfield EMP, 9mm Smith & Wesson 637, .38spl Ruger LCP, .380 Smith & Wesson 2206, .22 They all work well and are reliable, and she can shoot them well. She does not like the squaty grip on my G26, but likes the grip and the way my G17 g4 shoots for her, so is thinking about a G19 g4. She doesn't like the looks of Glocks at all, and isn't sure if she can get over that, but she does like their reliability. Similarly, she does not like the short grip on my PM9, but otherwise likes how it shoots and how it carries so is considering a CW9. She also likes how the Beretta PX4 compact 9mm feels (hasn't shot one), and is considering that one. She thought she'd like a Beretta Nano, but didn't like it when she finally held one in the gun store. Also didn't like the way the SIG 290 held. She's thinking she might take a look at the Walther P22 (not for carry, but instructing). We had talked about a Beretta bobcat .22 for instructing, but she doesn't seem interested in that model for this purchase. Similarly had thought about a S&W .22 j-frame for instructing, but she doesn't like how expensive they are, and she doesn't want a Taurus. Any ideas or suggestions? She can get anything she wants, as far as I'm concerned, for any reason (doesn't have to be practical). I think the Walther P22 is more interesting and cool and useful for instructing, but I'm not opposed to anyone's continued search for the ultimate carry gun. I also think a Beretta bobcat .22 would be neato to have. Same with a j-frame .22. But it really doesn't matter to me what she gets, or if she even gets anything. Thanks Wanna kill these ads?
