there are alot of fine choices for a 22.if this will be meant as a purse gun then look into a revolver that shoots .22 Magnum.there isnt much more felt recoil but it sure delivers alot more out the business end.

The Ruger SP101 in 327 Magnum would be my suggestion. With a little practice.

Many years ago I bought a Charter Pathfinder (.22 LR) with a 3" bbl. Such a good little gun that I gave it to my older daughter to take with her to college. She just turned 40 & still has it. Shoots as well as it ever did, still in good shape. They made them in .22 WMR also, but I don't know if they still do. Charter also made the Off Duty in .22 WMR, with a 2" bbl, but I don't know if that's a current offering either. The Taurus Model 94 (.22 LR) is a fine little revolver, and a 9-shot. S&W still makes the Model 34 in .22 LR, which is an outstanding revolver. A small woman with whom I used to work carried a 2" Model 34 with her at all times. Confused, if your wife has limited hand strength, it would be a good idea to install Wolff lower strength trigger springs in these revolvers, so she wouldn't have to fight the normally stiff trigger pull. In semiautomatics, both Beretta & Taurus make pocket size pistols in .22 LR that are excellent quality. Beretta's is the Model 21, but I don't know the model designation of the Taurus (probably Greasypaws does). My younger daughter has a Beretta Model 70 (.22 LR) that is a great pistol (larger than pocket size), but it's been discontinued, & is also a single action pistol. I wouldn't recommend a single action semiautomatic for your wife unless she's quite familiar with handling such firearms. Another caliber you might think of is the .32 ACP. It's been the fashion for years to belittle the caliber, but Winchester, CCI & Corbon make excellent loads, and Taurus makes an excellent DAO (double action only) semiautomatic in this caliber. Is there any place near you where she might try shooting different guns to see what's she's familiar with? A target range that rents guns by the hour? That would be a fine way for her to see what fits her hand comfortably and also the ones with a trigger pull that she can comfortably handle.
