My mom’s birthday is in July, and my dad and I were wanting to get her a new pistol. She has a Ruger SP-101 with a 4in barrel, and she wants something smaller. I was wondering if I should get her a Ruger LCP, or a Rossi .357 2in stubby. She would only shoot .38 out of the Rossi, but I’m going to get the .357 just so she’ll have a bigger cal. if she ever moves up. Any input on these guns would be great.

If guns are outlawed I'LL BE AN OUTLAW!!!!!!!!! If guns kill people then beds cause pregnancy.

I do not have one, but I do own the Kel-Tec 3-AT and love it. They are pretty much the same gun, I think the Ruger weighs a few ounces more tough. My buddy loves his, but they are hard to find. Also they are kinda snappy to shoot. Hope this helps some.

The Rossi 357 magnum is one of the best made. Taurus firearms makes the Rossi 357 magnum and taurus makes the best revolvers IMO. I have several Rossi magnums and have had no problems, my wife loves her's s well.

I have both the LCP and a Rossi in 357.
I would recomend the LCP it is very light weight and in a descent caliber especially since she already has a revolver.
With a little practice she will be able to load the mag it is not that hard the spring is realitively light.
This little pistol is pretty accurate. Has a little kick but manageable especially with the smaller hands it is easier to get a better grip, and it also comes with a finger rest extension now.
Hope this helps
