Please help me pick a .22 revolver for an "OLD" friend of mine
Some how this forum has escaped me all these years.
And I just discovered it here tonight.
I was web searching around on a topic and just stumbled across a thread here.
So glad I did.
I am hoping y'all might be able to help me out.
I have an OLD friend. 80 maybe?
He is ex-Navy, lifelong hunter, knows a thing or two about firearms.
He is looking for a self defence handgun for him and his wife.
Although firearms savvy, he's getting pretty frail, and his wife especially.
He has requested that he is looking for
- a revolver (simple, no gizmos to learn √)
- in .22 caliber
And I pretty much agree with him on both counts.
A revolver is what they need (DA).
And they (wife in particular) can't handle any recoil.
I was hoping y'all here could give me some makes and model numbers of some .22 revolvers you might recommend.
Money is a little bit of an issue.
So the plan would be for me to look online for something used, and buy it for them.
Maybe something in the $250-$300 range would be swell.
BUT, we all know, if it isn't RELIABLE, I'm just throwing their money away.
So it does need to be a solid gun from a reputable manufacturer
So that's the QUEST!
A solid, well built, reliable .22 revolver, but nothing fancy to run the price up.
That I can find used online.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
