    Let her get the .22 and shoot it, later if she wants to go to higher caliber you can use the .22 for inexpensive practice....try the new M&P .22 .......JJ

    My wife's first experience shooting, was with a 92fs......she really didn't have too much problem with the recoil, and did well, actually......I think the more they shoot, recoil becomes secondary.......I would worry more about the mechanics, ie. racking the slide, loading the mag, disassembly for cleaning etc.

    My wife wanted a .22 or a .380. I just told her that she could bump to a .38 or 9mm which would have alittle better stopping power while not being that much worse on recoil she opted for a 9mm. I make her practice with the highest grain full metal jacket to get use to the recoil. Then I bought her some low recoil hollowpoints for when she is at the house.

    Of course one thing that helped my wife is I had her go to the range twice. Once she shot my full sized .40 the 2nd she shot a compact .40. I told her if she can handle that she would really like the low recoil of the 9mm. She absolutely loved the .9mm compact M&P I bought her. Heck, I liked it a ton better than my full sized M&P .40. I liked it about the same as my .40c M&P though.
