Well said Greg. I think some people are against guns, and that is certainly fine. All about choices. Just like stepping into a conversation amongst people who are discussing the topic at hand in a jovial manner and enjoying it, and stating your anti-gun view. Another choice.

Dont' forget to look at the Marlin 39 if you would like a lever action. Tube fed, 22 shorts, longs and long rifle. As for nostalgia and reliabilty the Henry Golden boy is also a fine pick.
When you were checking out the Bersa, did you get a chance to break it down? Very straight forward and easy. Makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze.
If the Mrs. is going to have many range trips for practice, I would steer away from Kel-Tec. Nice CC gun, but after a few thousand rounds they get a little sloppy. Also the only JHP that would feed consistantly for me was Corban brand, which is a little pricey compared to others.
Springfield Armory XD 4" barrel 9MM. $450 to $500 with new USA safety system (ultra safety assurance). Checked one out the other day and really liked it. On the list for my next purchase.
Keep in mind that although the .380 and 9MM are similar in caliber, the 9 is a bit more powerful but less expensive in price when it come to ammo. This makes a difference when much range time is anticipated.

P.S. - Hah - stayed on topic that time

Here's the Marlin I was looking at. http://www.marlinfirearms.com/Firear...on22/981T.aspx

While I like the lever actions, I think it's a bit much for a beginner rifle. Bolt action leads to taking more time and thinking about the next shot expecially for a young'un.

Yes I did break down the Bersa. Very nice. I also liked the Sig 232. In fact there were several that I liked. We will be heading to a shop with an indoor range with rentals so we can try before we buy. We are in no hurry. She's not afraid of handguns and has fired mine. I'm in research mode right now looking at providing her with a selection and letting her decide which one is right for her.

Thanks for all the input.

I bought a Ruger 10/22 for my 8 year old son. he does fine wit hit, after a reminder course each time we go out and shoot. for a cheap rimfire weapon, its great, and cheap to shoot.
I was able to pick this one up for less than $75, and there is a huge aftermarket for it.
as far as 1 for the "boss" my wife uses a S&W 9MM SVE.
she does fine with it, after she got use to the double trigger system on it.


Let us know the results of what U guys decide.....

The perfect firearm is the Barrett in capable hands looking at Bin Laden. Which reminds me when Katie Couric was asking a marine sniper what he felt when he shot a insurgent (didn't call him a terrorist) Marine simply answered "Recoil, Ma'am. Semper FI!
