    Default revolver for my wife

    need some help here. i cant recall ever owning a revolver so i am at a complete loss.

    i finally caved and got my wife the horse she's been nagging (no pun intended) me about for 15 years. she will start riding trails a few times a week. I DO NOT RIDE HORSES so i will NOT be tagging along. she asked me this afternoon would i think it be a good idea for her to carry a pistol. well....HELL YES!

    she has shot my autos. but, given the fact that she will be riding a horse, her hands would be a bit busy for the auto. i am inclined to swing toward a revolver. i am also thinking a .38 would be the caliber of choice.

    any suggestions on what to look for?

    Lot of good deals to be found on Smith Model 10's in the four inch model. Nice and reliable. Or if you happen across a Model 19 or 66, even better as you have the option of .38 or .357

    I don't want to get into brands because there are too many opinions, and too many to choice from.
    But yes that is a good idea, and zoom said a good thing, I'd look for a 357 too since you can also shoot the 38 from it.

    Yes, the .357 was created by extending the case of the 38 by a tenth of an inch. Makes is great for practicing with lower power rounds to get someone used to the gun, and having more potent carry ammo available.

    My duty sidearm was a S&W Model 19, first handgun I ever owned, and still have it today.
