My soon to be wife and I are going to move up and take the plunge this year. I have quite a bit of knowledge in the firearm realm and we shoot regularly and just started reloading. I'm 33 and she is 28. That being said...
I'm fine with my Redhawk as a sidearm up in Ak but we are running into some issues getting sweetie a comfortable sidearm. She has some serious arthritis in her wrists and shoulders and she has a hard time with the weight of some guns. I want her to be able to carry enough gun, yet want to actually carry the thing and hit what she is aiming at. She is really good with her G30 and G19 but I'd like her to move up to a wheel gun. I'd also like to stay in the .44mag/special range as we are streamlining our calibers so I don't have so much crap to move. I was thinking a scandium .44 and handload until we found something that works for her. Any ideas or suggestions? I know I'll open a can of worms on this one but I'd like some more input.
BTW: we have been living off grid and hauling water for 2 years, so she is a tough gal, just has some physical limitations.
