I agree. I have a Ruger Mark III that does not reliably fire some 22 LR. I use it to force me to do clearance drills.
I had a few FTFs today. I cleared them just fine.
A revolver is wonderfully simple. Point/aim and squeeze the trigger.
I am told that the Ruger LCR is light and easy to use. For a lady I would recommend 38 special or even 327 Magnum. If she is sporting, she can go up to 357 magnum.
I own an SP101, which is not light but extremely durable and easy to conceal.
