Horribly Confused - .22LR Recommendations or Something for a Weaker Hand.
I look forward to your help and appreciate your thoughts.
I just picked up my very first gun, a new S&W 617 4". It's a beauty but I am having some real hand problems lately and the gun is just going to be too heavy for me right now. I'll definitely keep it and hopefully will be able to use it someday soon. So, I need another gun.
I hadn't thought about a semi auto but I am going to need something under probably 20 ounces and there aren't many light revolvers in .22lr to chose from. If I stay with a revolver I was thinking about the Ruger LCR 22. Not sure however if the trigger pull is going to be viable for me as I hear it's pretty hard and double action only. Maybe a S&W 351PD? .22 magnum. Not sure about the kick on that one.
I had handled a Ruger SR22 a while ago and LOVED it but now I can't find one anywhere. A shop locally today told me Ruger is backed up close to eight months in production of that gun. If I sty with a revolver I was thinking about the Ruger LCR 22. Not sure however if the trigger pull is going to be viable for me as I hear it's pretty hard and double action only.
Going to a pistol, I am looking for reliability, easy takedown and I like the idea of a blowback action. I am not interested in concealed carry yet, although I do have my CCW. I just want a good gun, easy to use that I can learn on and spend hours with at the range. Anyone have some options of pistols to look at in a 22.lr that will be light enough but really easy for a beginner? Should I step up to say a .380?
Fortunately price is not nearly as important as finding the right gun. I would prefer to stay with one of the major manufacturers, USA if possible. I am really confused! Any help is greatly appreciated!

Ruger makes a mkiii that is callled the light or lite I forget which. But it is aluminum so its nice and light. And the mk3 is an awesome gun very reliable and crazy accurate
