looking for recommendations for a revolver for my wife. Best place to buy one and best gun.
Curious on the trigger of the 642.Smith and Wesson 642 airweight stainless. The stainless frame makes it heavier....it also makes it much more manageable for women who may be recoil sensitive. They typically carry in their purse so a few extra ounces of weight isn't as noticeable
Change the trigger immediately before she ever shoots it. The factory trigger may be the worst trigger on the planet ever. A good trigger job and it is awesome. Find the right grips for her hand. Let her pick those grips.
I highly recommend this setup for women. This is what my wife carries. Countless reasons she loves the revolver over a semi auto pistol.
This is kind of what I am getting at.... Does she like revolvers or what? Personally I don’t think there are many reasons for anyone to carry a revolver over modern handguns like a glock 43/48 or sig p365 etc. More than a few women carry just that. What’s your argument for a revolver over an auto?Guys a .38 snubby is a snappy gun, even worse in an air weight frame. A 9mm Glock 43 will have less recoil (and more rounds). I have 2 S&W air weight .38’s and one has a 3” barrel, and they suck to shoot. My wife won’t shoot them, she carries the G43.
The absolute best thing you can do for your wife if she wants a handgun is take her to a range where you can rent multiple guns. Different calibers, brands/models (makes a difference) and platforms (auto vs revolver). Let her decide what she likes and doesn’t like. A gun, especially a carry gun, is a very personal choice.
