Robert as far as marksmanship and safety I'm going to have her schooled up before she goes. They can polish what I show her, but I'm hoping the instructor sees what she'll already know and says she's good. We've already went over loading and unloading, not to mention the mechanical safety, the type of rounds, hand position, going to work on how to aim in the next few days, for now I've kept it simple, someone is trying to get in the door that isn't supposed to, take it out, slap in a mag, work the slide and when they come through the door point it center mass,and empty the mag. I'll start her out at 10 ft which will probably annoy her but hey, she's gotta start somewhere. After a few rounds at 10 I'll move her back to 20 and let her see the difference. 20 ft doesn't seem like much but with a 3" nominal barrel 20ft feels like a long ways.
Paul how is Eric doing here lately? LOL I really like the weight and balance of this little pistol. Later on, I may have to get one for myself. I may go with the .40 rather than the 9mm but I want something a little bigger. I've got a bit more experience with firearms and I really think that a .40 will be much better for me than a 9mm.
Cayugad, I'll definately let you know. Just the way it lays in your hands is nice. My wife and I have smaller hands anyways, but I've had quite a bit of experience with different hanguns and I can tell you this one feels like it's going to be ok as far as recoil. While we're out there I may have to shoot a group or 2 myself. I'll make sure to include pics of the groups so you can see. There are videos on youtube of people shooting the same similar model. The only difference is that most have black slides where hers is a silver slide. Don't overlook Taurus because they have a great warranty. From what I have read and seen they have a lifetime parts and labor warranty for the lifetime of the firearm. Through multiple owners. Short of the firearm being completely destroyed, it should be warrantied forever. That's how it reads anyways. You might check with them on your squirrel revolver.
