I am looking for a .22 pistol for my wife to get aquainted with shooting. She tried my 9MM and it jumped out of her hand. It is too much for her right now. I would like to put a laser sight on it and possibly a scope as she really likes the scope on my Ruger .22 rifle. She can hit anything with that! The combination of the two would really impress her and make it easier for me to justify one for my 9MM home defense weapon. (the laser) Any how, I appreciate any input, we are looking t keep the package under $300.00, do not mind buying pre owned at all as long as it comes froma reputable dealer. Thanks!
