    Truth right there, but ultralight tiny guns are still selling well. If you never plan to shoot it, it's great, but a good grip and weight are the keys to manage painful recoil. Getting new women shooters to fire ultralight guns or heavy magnums has turned more women away from the sport than the Brady bunch.

    Glittergungirl, Welcome! Keep trying different guns until you find one you like to shoot and carry. Don't know about the Range in Baker, but some indoor ranges will rent different guns to try out.
    "Incrementalism" is the weapon used by anti-gun forces to destroy the second amendment.
    "Compromise" is a negotiation term that can only be used one time - when you compromise a compromise, you have lost the entire issue.

    I learned this lesson as well. I bought my wife a Airweight .38/.357 revolver and she hated it. Even with .38 ammo the recoil hurt her hand when she shot it. We got a full size Springfield 1911 in .45ACP and she can shoot that thing all day long.
