I'm new here and although I did some shooting as a kid (years ago) I don't know a lot about guns. Recently I purchased a Walther P22 that fires long rifle standard and High velocity rim fire shells to start with. What do you think of this as a target gun to get in a lot of practice without the high cost? I would like to eventually go to a hand gun with more punch and am thinking of a 9mm but I'm not sure if my wife could handle the kick of it. I've never fired one so I don't know how it compares. My wife is interested in learning how to shoot also. She's tall but thin and has large enough hands to fit around just about any hand gun. I'm just concerned about the strength in her arms/wrist, etc. and if she could handle the kick back. Any recommendations.
