My wife has decided, along with 4 or 5 other of her female co-workers, to go take a concealed weapons class next weekend, and at no prompting from myself. Only hitch in the giddy-up... she has not pulled a trigger since I've known her over the last 9 yrs. They will have to shoot at some point during the concealed class. It been more than 12 yrs since I took it, but I know they will have to load their own weapon and shoot it. So we are going to go do some learning and shooting this weekend. Although I would like to start with the 22LR caliber to avoid any scare of recoil, I am thinking of sticking with the simple LCR .38 revolver as it will be easy to tell when its loaded. easy to load it, and easy to fire it. If she had a misfire with the 22 slide action, then she might not know what to do as far as clearing the chamber, etc. My only concern about the LCR is will she will be comfortable shooting it. I bought some 110 grain ammo today and some rat shot also to start with, to reduce recoil as much as possible. Any other suggestions or recommendations for our first trip to the range together tomorrow to prepare for her CW class?
